So I am going to weld up the tubes to the diff and build a medium duty truss, meanwhile I will search for that XJ 4cyl front diff for the HP swap and the regear them both, I will truss the front and weld the tubes as well on that too.

So its getting time for me to get the coilovers and springs so I can be ready for the axle swaps, and at that time I will also do the SYE and new driveshaft so it will all happen at once, just getting all the parts together, gearing, lockers and all the trussing and welding

So glad I finally found a rear axle to build..

I still keep going back and fourth between 33" and 35" tires, cant make up my mind...I am kinda thinking of going with 33 x 10.5 or 35 x 12.5, with the 33" tires I can use my wheels and just get spacers to save a bit of cash, but bigger tires allow me to go more places, however it seems that 35" is that mystical number where you will need to start beefing up the brakes and steering system (more $$$$$). Oh boy what to do..
35" with disc brakes all around works fine. My little TJ has a LJ rear axle and a XJ front axle with the stock disc brakes and I have driven it everywhere for the last 3 years this way, stops fine.
Now TJ's eith drum brakes in the rear and 35's don't stop all that well, have driven several and that gets a bot adventurous
The bigger issue with lockers and 35" tires is axle shafts. Get the superior axle shafts and don't look back. Currie steering and a flip kit is not a bad investment either

Phil's is ok but not great and it falls off pretty quick after that.

For a real stab in the heart, they only pay about $1- $2 / lb for brisket.

It's a very scenic trail with alot of water crossings. Other than that john bull is fun but somewhat challenging for some and also gold mountain and pontiac sluce are good ones. While up there go by the discovery center and grab a map of the trails it will help you out a lot.
Thanks for the help Chris, no lockers, I'm on 33's and my buddy has 37's. I just moved out here from the east coast so I'm new to the trails around here. The only place I've driven was Wildomar OHV. Some friends have mentioned Holcomb, Dishpan, Pilot rock and Cleghorn Ridge.
We've done some research,we have a map and a campsite and we look forward to exploring the area. The campground is full so I assume there will be other people we could possibly tag along with and if not we will find our way.
Thanks again

You can do every trail on this mountain with 33's but with no locker you will need some good guidence through the rocks but still very doable with no damage unless you don't have sliders then you end up like my jeep with custom ones. If you run john bull you will probably be better off from wewst to east withoiut lockers. I think we had close to ten jeeps make all these trails and a few were on 31's with no lockers. Let me know if you need anything else.

Well just got back from IMS and Harbor Freight. Let me tell you all, if you need DOM for a cage or other project, BUY IT NOW!!! DOM is pretty damn cheap at the moment. It actually came down from the last quote I got. When I was there a month ago asking they quoted me $5.75 a foot for 1.75" x .120 Wall.

Today I bought 34 feet of 1.75" x.120 Wall DOM for $4.50 a foot!!! It came down over a buck from the last quote! (34 feet because they are currently in 17' sticks so I just bought 2)
And I got 34 feet of 1.25" x.120 Wall DOM for $3.48 a foot!!!

Yep that's Wildomar, I wa there the july 4th weeknd and we spent a couple hours exploring the area. Nothing too difficult except that pic that says bad idea.
Its an extremely steep downgrade that looks very tough. My buddy was leading in his jk on 37's, he got caught up in a bad spot, we tried to reposition him so he continue down the trail, when he hopped back in it would start because of the angle of the jeep, he had a half tank of gas but the pump couldn't find it. We had to pull him back up the hill and thank god there were some other jeepers out there because my 2.5L wasn't enough to pull a deadweight jk up such a steep grade. It took a jeep and a custom built toyota truck "rock crawler" attached with 3 tow straps to get him back up the trail. It was fun but learning the hard way is the only way to learn I guess.

Seems like a place my YJ can handle with the 32s and front locker and 4.10. Think a stock ZJ with 28s, 5.9L, 4.10, d44, and all time 4x4 can handle it for a scouting the trails trip?

Minus the "bad idea" trail

Hey everyone its been awhile since Ive had anything worth while to post. Been focusing on health issues and taking care of business.

But today I bought a new Rampage Frameless top. Its going to be here tomarrow. Then install on Monday. So if anyone is looking for a soft top and frame both in good condition no leaks noticed back zipper needs to be replaced.

I'd rather go on Saturday, if it can be done. I really don't even care where we go. I just need an off road fix. <------That's going to be me here soon if the Jeep doesn't leave the pavement. If anyone is available to run any trail on Saturday let me know.
