Nice job! My wife bought me a $500. 1990 YJ for Valentines Day, with an oil puking 2.5. I swapped on a CJ nose, tailgate and top.

haha, when i got it the only thing wrong with it was the chipping paint and it needed a clutch. Everything else was in great order, its not my DD it is my offroad toy so I really beat the living hell out of it.

First of all please excuse the very poor quality cell phone pictures. My old phone took much better ones and I keep forgetting that my new one isnt as cool like that.

Anyways. Here is a run down of what has happened lately.

Got my brown dog heavy duty 1" lift mounts and Daystar 1" body lift installed.




This allowed me to run a 1" shackle. So currently my jeep is at 5" suspension and 1" body. I really want to do tube fenders and get it lower since Its getting a little big.

I had to do some exhuast work so I dropped the bellypan and found this:

New mount installed:


Went on a club run with the MassKrawlers and grenaded the spiders in my d35 within 20 minutes of the run:



And finally the long lost pictures of my Dana 300:



Might be picking up a pair of wagoneer dana 44's tomarrow since I really dont want to keep putting money into the junk dana30/35 combo. The way I wheel Im just going to keep braking them and I might eventually be on 37's

I picked up a set of Wagoneer Dana 44's today. Matching front and rear came out of a 88. Got a deal: 200 bucks for both!

Im actually not sure, but I do know that I dont like them because the aluminum is corroded and I get nervous when I air down offroad that I will lose a bead or they will leak slowly so I dont air down as much as I'd like to.

I am picking up a set of soft 8's for my Waggy axles problably like next week from a friend for dirt cheap. I would have gone with some craigar Nomad I's BUT I cant pass up this deal.

Here are more pictures from my last run with MASSKRAWLERS: You can see me getting winched off onto the "go around" trail and getting the strap up the hill so I could turn around and go back down.

Opened my front diff to find my ring and pinion missing most of their teeth. I'll post pictures soon. The rear pinion has a chunk out of it but it should still drive ok.

Im bringing it home from my friends house and parking it for the winter.

Looks like my Dana 44 build is going to be moved to the front of the list.

The plan:
-4.88/4.56 not sure which yet gearing
-Warn premium locking hubs
-Balistic fab bombproof balljoints (rebuildable, sweet!) if they are out in time
-Rebuild the brakes.
-Hi-steer

In the meantime Im letting my budget build and since the jeep is going to be parked Im going to start to swap on the CJ clip
