Here we go. I have set up a bunch of indexes, hopefully I can keep everything organized and do a lot better at keeping information easily accessible!
I will use this post to keep an updated photo and current specs as things progress!
1995 Jeep YJ
31x10.5x15 "off brand" tires
Barricade Soft Top
Pretty much stock and 99% rust free!
The goal with this build will be to transform that stock YJ in Warbird 2! My overall goal is to build a rig that is an across the board compromise between comfortable daily driver capable of making long road trips, a weekend warrior rock crawler, and a descent expedition rig capable of going on prolonged outings into the wilderness of the west.
5.3/4l60e swap (in progress!)
8.8/d30 built (lockers, chromos, etc)
Full Armor (body and skids)
Warbird paint job
Expo Jeep Trailer
When I first was mapping out this build I had a desire to keep the Jeep small (32s, mild lift, stock motor, etc) but decided that long term I would never be happy with that set up. I then swung in the opposite direction and began hunting for some tons and started planning for 37 or 38 inch tires. I finally made the decision that in order to fully meet all my requirements, a build based on 35s would be my best choice; big enough to do some pretty great rock crawling, but small enough to be a descent daily driver and expo rig.

That's it for now I think...
