.The Trail Rig.

Hi everyone! My name is Justin, I am 18 years old and I have bought my first Jeep
The jeep I bought is a 1989 YJ with a 4.2L 5 speed. I got it for $700. It runs really well but needs some work.

The plans:

Dana 44 front axle.
Ford 9" rear end.
4" skyjacker springs.
SOA.
38-40" tires.
Roll cage.
Custom front and rear bumpers, rock sliders, tube fenders, skid plates.
On board air.
And a bunch of other stuff.


Here are some pictures the day I brought it home.

Then the real work started.
I put the tub on it's side to work on the floor.



Here are some pictures of the frame fixed with the 4" leafs and the 9" sitting there.(I am waiting on the u bolts)

I attached them to the braces from the tub to the fenders and then through holes near the roll bar mount. If I remember correctly.

Yeah the body dropped S10 is the project I put on hold because I wanted to build a jeep so bad. It still needs lots of work.

Here are some pictures.







This is my daily driver. 99 f150 6" lift and 35s.



And this is my other s10 I have had since I was 14. I am trying to sell it now.

Are you kidding me? I was talking to you on a f150 forum, I was gonna buy that f150 but I couldn't get the money in time. That's hilarious!
