You'd be surprised how much a good stock frame will actually hold up to. I've been putting a lot of HP/torque through mine for a few years now and it has held up. Definitely twists a lot looking at pictures, but so far everything is still together!

SWEET JESUS! That thing sounds like a very pi$$ed off caged beast...I think a few drops of pee might come out if you really got on the skinny pedal!

i gave it a little tap in third gear on the road...i may have lost a drop or two. all i can say is it will be a rush all the way to the scene of the accident.

Just needs some mufflers! I'm not a fan of open headers on anything.

Check out tj flares on a cj. I think this would improve the look of the rear fender. I just subscribed and will go through the whole build when I get back from work. That motor sounds so mean

well i have drove it a few times now not as much as i would like still open headers. still nothing over 160 degrees on the temp. my wife said it was like riding in a parade everybody looking and waving. it has a bad tierod end im going to finish the steering with 3/4 hiems anyway but it really drives and rides good. last night my and my buddy unhooked the swaybar and flexed it some to see what it would do and it did as well as his yj. i need to redo my shock mounts the shocks were bottoming out to soon i get that done and it should do really well after that i let my buddy take it down the road and back last night he came back with bugs in his teeth...lol first thing he said was he was amazed at how it road and drove. said he wished his
yj did the same as mine. i am really happy with the out come of this project and i cant wait to give it a test
