You aren't the only one.

What do you guys think? Think mine could one day look like a particular Red or Green Jeep? lol

Mine looked similiar to yours after I got done with it the first time. Then 8 years of wheelin took its toll, the big tire bug bit and somehow I managed to get it in one piece again.

I'm sure you can make it anyway you want to.

Nice Jeep!

Looks like he has them all pollished up to look alot newer than they really are. Nice!
You're right, They are all polished up.
They are made by Superior, bought em in 1979.
I would like to find two more for my trailer.

Judging by the current big yellow Jeep... it's only a matter of time. This was Big Lime about 3-4 years ago...



Compared to now...

Honestly, I'm more fond of the traditional look. I like your 3-4 years ago Jeep more aesthetically speaking.

Here's what I plan on making mine look like one day...or getting another yellow Jeep for pure off-road purposes:

Beserk has Coilovers, I have TJ Coil springs.

You do not need coils to build a big jeep.


Some reasons to use coils are:

Better approach and departure angles because no shackles are there.

No center spring hangars to catch on rocks and logs etc.

Link suspensions locate axle to reduce wheel hop without the aid of a traction bar that usually limits articulation some.

Link suspension eliminate leaf springs turning into a "S" from axle wrap.


Some reasons to keep leave springs:

Simple design.

Approach and departure can be good with larger tires anyway.

A coil system is alot of work done right.

A coil system is more expensive even if you fab everything yourself.

Its easier to locate exhaust with leaf springs.

A traction bar can fix wheel hop on a spring over and who cares about all that articulation anyway?
