Not sure why a Tera Low doesn't work in my Jeep. Had it warrantied five times at this point, I believe. The last warranty, they sent me a whole new front half, and internals. I thought for sure that would have been the last time I built a T-case. Blew it up for the last time a few months ago. I can't play that game anymore!! I went back to a stock case with a SYE. I'll be wheeling with stock gearing until I figure out/save up for something else!

If anyone is interested in a pile of 231/Tera Low parts, I have a bunch for sale!



I recently traded a trailer for a decent '77 CJ7 with an AMC 304 that I would love to build. Problem is, I don't need 2 Jeeps!



I'd let the pink one go for $3K or the orange on go for $16K

My Build!


Real Jeeps are built, not "bolt-on"!

The time has come, where the TJ is too small. We're having a baby boy in August, and will need more room. The TJ has to go.

I'm gonna convert the body, to LJ specs. With a wheelbase around 108ish. In the process, I plan to sell the GenRight gas tank, and run something else tucked under the raised floor that'll be built. I think a WJ tank will fit nicely, but gotta confirm that.

I also plan to cut the frame off at the top of the arch, and run straight 2x4 tube to the rear, so the rear suspension will have to be reworked a bit.

My Build!

I'm digging the method of building it bigger and not selling it.

sent from my phone because I'm not turtley enough for the turtle club.

I read that first paragraph and thought NOOOO, because I really like how your has turned out with the stock look and seems to work in the big rocks. Then great news. Congrats on the baby to come as well.

Is the WJ tank larger capacity? Never seen anyone do this swap this before.

I'm not sure on that. I kinda hope not, as I've always had enough fuel, even on the longest days. But I guess having the option to carry more would be nice.

The stretch is coming along nicely! Turns out I'll get more than I thought. Wheelbase is looking like 113"+.






The Jeep had been wrecked early in its life. I finally have an excuse to cut out the bondo.
