88 yj build!

well i figured now that im starting to do stuff to the jeep rather than just repair it i should start one of these.....


well today i got my new axles delivered (SOA, 8.8 LS and HP dana 30 loc rite) my newly rebuilt transfer case with a SYE, drive shaft, and 35/12.5/15 comp cut boggers



this is how it looked before the swap



and this is with the front mostly done



tomorrow i will be putting the new transfer case in and do as much as i can with the 8.8 since i have to wait for my u-bolts to show up to finish it.....

That looks like it will be one big beast when you are done with it! Looking good so far

Sounds like just took the stock springs and sprung it over the axle? Maybe they are new springs but I never noticed that anywhere...

We spring over the rear on my friends MJ Comanche with stock springs and it was like 1.5" taller than wr expected.. I think it has to do with how the springs are now holding the weight

Looks good man! Just make sure you put a rear anti-wrap bar (ladder bar) on so you don't get too much axle hop and start breaking leaf springs and/or pulling the driveshaft apart.

That SOA setup all the way around is gonna be flexy as ****. Hope you arent afraid of those swampers biting your fenders


EDIT: I just noticed you're just down the street in Layton. If you ever need an extra hand or two to spin a wrench, gimme a holler!
