Sweet TJ, Jay. Saw it at Rides when Brandon did my lift and tires. I have the white TJ with Argent AEV Pintlers and 35x12.50 Goodyear Wrangler MTRs with Kevlar. Brandon told me that you may be selling your front axle soon. I'm very interested in it if you are. I'm on NC4x4.com with this same username. Let me know if you decide to sell that axle. I'm just getting started on my Jeep, it was bone stock when I bought it in December. I'm sure I'll be interested in a lot of the mods you take off when you upgrade, so let me know when you decide to get rid of anything. Hope to see you at the Flats next weekend and I'm sure I'll see you around Uwharrie, Mtn. City, Gulches etc. Keep up the great work.

^ I saw them mounting your tires and installing them on the rig, night and day difference!

At some point I will probably sell both the front and rear axles, so I'll try to remember to let you know ahead of time. At a minimum, I'll mention it in this thread first before posting them up for sale. Actually, at that time I would be doing a complete make over- which would be stage 6 of this build:
  • Sell built front Rubi 44 axle, build front Dana 60.
  • Sell built rear Rubi 44 axle, build rear Dana 60 or 14 bolt.
  • Sell 37" Pitbull radial Rockers, buy 40" MTR/K's or 41" radial Rockers
  • Sell 17" Raceline wheels 5x4.5, buy 17" Raceline wheels (8 bolt pattern)
  • Move rear axle back another 2", cut corners to fit

But, it has been pointed out to me several times that I have commitment issues with my jeep parts . So in an effort to slide away from that rep, I'm going to try to wheel this setup for..... at least a season . The good thing is that the jeep is running perfectly and essentially my Stage 5 or Version 5 of the rig is complete.

There are a few 5.5 mods I'm looking at before diving into the next level- like Cage to frame tie-ins, Fuel cell, and possibly some half doors. I'll make sure to post pics as those upgrades are built.




Couple of specs on how the rig sits right now:
  • 2000 TJ
  • 100" wheelbase
  • 74" to the top of the windshield frame
  • 20 3/4" to the belly up pan
  • 21 1/2" to the frame rail
  • 37" Pitbull radial Rockers
  • 3.5" lift on Fox 2.0 Coilovers (front)
  • Weight is ~4,300lbs loaded with doors and spare
  • Weight is ~4,050lbs with out doors and spare

Just spent a good 4 hours going through this.

I'm trying to build a LCOG rig and going with a 2 or 2.5 inch and the DIY Highliner kit front and rear, just picked up my 35's and I haven't even picked up my Jeep yet, still in Iraq, when I get back I'll be watching yoru stuff and I'll try to make the trip up to N.C. to wheel as well.

Would love to see this thing in action. And your running stock crawl ratio right now?

Thanks for the service!!! Assuming that is why you are in the sand box.


Still running stock crawl ratio. I had a line on a Rubi 4 to 1 box for a sweet deal, but passed because I have been pleased with mine and just couldn't justify the move. We have a 4 to1 crawl box in the H3 and it is ssssssllllllllooooooowwwwwwww. It gets into the upper rpms quicker than I like.

I have thought about the shorter springs as well, but I'm right where I want to be uptravel wise and I think I would get too much into my fenders if I go any lower.

I have 4 to 1 crawl in my Rubicon and i must say im not to pleased with it. Though it may be good in some applications, I can't see myself keeping it in low riding small trails and hill climbs. I almost want to sell it for a built Np 231

you can always use the higher gear in your trans with the 4:1, thats the beauty of it.

Glad everythings working well, looks good
Being a photographer I always ruin nice shots for myself like that one, though, because if you look at the portion of the background being framed by the white part of the cage on the left, you'll see the natural photo of it being in focus as opposed to being blurred by a shallow depth of field that you would get from a low aperture.

Nonetheless, obviously it is a crazy transformation from page one.. and I love how you keep it so clean and still wheel the everloving hell out of it. You can tell it's not a pavement princess, but it's certainly got "sex" appeal!

Thanks man,

I'm in love with the setup and you really just saved me a ton of money because I will just SYE the 231 and keep stock crawl ratio wh 4.88's or 4.56's on the 35's. I'm not even going to do the SYE and CV shaft yet as i'm going to do the MML along with the cut hood and raised fenders.

I can focus on building the axles with the extra cash now instead of height, and you also Made me realize with the wheeling I do, i will Never need a Longarm setup, maybe if I do it in phases such as yours but for now, stock length and short arms are it for me, in the beginning I'll be on stock short arms at that, then probably clayton or JKS adjustable lowers and I'll be watching for used stuff for the top as it doesnt' get beat on, maybe replace a bushing or two type of thing.

Love the fact taht you have made all of this work without a body lift as well. Congrats man, and the OCD is impressive, I'm like that on my Stangs, but never on a 4wd vehicle.

You will probably end up needing the SYE and CV shaft. I would pretty much just consider it a must have if you are going to lift your jeep. It will eliminate 90% of the vibes you will find on the street once you start getting taller.


I nearly bought a Saleen like yours!

Thank you! I always caravan with several friends and family members who wheel as well and they tell me they hear the funniest things being said in the crowd when I run some of the obstacles:

"Wow, I didn't think a normal jeep would go over that"
"I didn't know we were at a damn car show"
"Great, here comes a garage queen"
"I can't wait to watch this guy tear up that jeep"

I hear it every time we go out. I just take it as a back handed compliment. My friends and family get a kick out of it .

Thanks man, I've had her 5 years now, first two were when I built it in Germany - Viper Spec t-56 with Carbon fiber gears, IRS, Coilovers, Vortech etc etc etc. Putting her back to stock and selling her though. She was a terror on the road courses in Germany and the Autobahn, but the last 2 1/2 years have just been depressing for me, with the gearing and setup I have she's capable but I ran her up to 187 GPS once and lost balls to keep going, my top is still stretched from that. I have put maybe 5000 miles on her in the last 3 years so time to move the fixture and start building this Jeep as my DD and my New to me 1983 Mercury Capri T-Top will be getting Alot done and shooting for a wheel lifting consistent 9's on spray

In her current form she's a high 11 second car and already has a cage. I'll be doing some welding on her in critical areas and then throwing a 150-200 shot at her to find the weak links. That's why my Jeep build will be slow beyond the initial lift and fender hack. I'm looking at Aussie lockers front and rear along with the LCOG and 35's should be plenty capable for what i come against

The Mercury, honestlyl will probably have 5 engines in the next 5 years till I find what i like, be it built spray, back to turbo/turbo's, modular etc, long process now;-) Like that Z06 and the rim collection.

The SYE and D-shaft will come probably at the same time as the spring lift, but Jeep comes with a Budget boost Spacer kit and I'm going to run it with the Highline kit the first 3-6 months while I research, research, research the best deal on 2-3 inch springs and lower control arms. For the spacers, highline, and 35's, MML, and Locker phase shouldn't be any vibes I'm hoping
