Update for 6.0 lq4, th350, an np??? install and new axles and some stretch and bigger meats! Engine swap and stretch updates start on page 7 I think!

well i got bored with my old jeep... it was an 03 wrangler x with a few things done like ford 8.8 swap long arms, ballistic fab adjustable coil bucket and ford shock mounts.35 km2s rampage top.and some other stuff. it only had 55k miles but i wanted to sell but couldnt get what i wanted for it.i bought it all stock in 2006 and i finally got rid of it 6 months ago.

i love jeeps and i hav had this one for a long time. it was my second jeep after a 1978 cj5 with fullsize 44s and some other stuff. it was a beast but a pos at the same time. guess im a little high maintenance lol... i also have had a million xjs it seems. they were nothing special. buy and resell for cash mostly... but i got rid on my last jeep for a honda s2000... i know cool car but not a jeep and some ppl love to flame...

Also while I did the belly up I had to do a custom shaft and sye... So I found a local front and rear fully custom almost brand new driveshafts which on the receipt the buyer paid 900$$$ and he sold them to me for 400 yay me.... He also sold me a brand new rampage top for 160 and a transfer case with mega exremem rugged ridge sye kit installed for 200... I have a stock 231 transfer case for sale also lolol.... This is the front which is longer and this is the rear which I had shortened to a perfect fit for me for 30$ ... You can see how new they still look
