.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.

Where did you attach the straps to pull the body at?

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!
