A UK MJ build

Well after 8 XJs, 2 Wjs & a TJ I have finally found a MJ in the UK. Its very much a project jeep but they are so few and far between in the UK I had to get this one.



I haven't even seen it yet, all I know its a 1990 4litre 2wd. I have already sourced a 98 XJ for a parts car. Plan is to transfer all the running gear from the XJ, inc converting it to RHD, 4wd & auto plus the interior, front end & door swap!

Not much work then!

Oh and I am doing an axle swap too, just because I have a set of WJ variloc LSD axles lying around off a 3.1TD WJ, so they are geared with 3.91 ratios. I only plan a 3" lift and 31"s so should be spot on gear wise, plus I get bigger brakes and a disk rear end.

Watch this space, off to collect the thing a week saturday

Off to pick my rear D44 that has been living in a mates yard for a while. Also getting a set of JK 18" takes offs which will go onto my Grand to free up a set of rims to go onto the MJ. I am thinking a set of 17" Silverblade 3's to go with the modern look I am giving the truck.



With a set of 265-70-17 ATs thrown on them

forgot to update this. It is still sat in my storage container while my garage/workshop gets built, won't get to work on it for another couple of months yet











Seems it was at Florida State Uni in 1992. Need to see if I can find its history.

No updates really, I am still collecting bits and hunting around for a donor XJ. Think it will be going 3 or 4" lift, seems my spare set of WJ axles will be 4.10 geared soon so need to fit 32"s under it
