Story (optional):

This was to be my Offroad revival so to speak.* Having owned a highly modified Toyota short box and then an 88 YJ as a youngin', i wanted to get back into "It" once the funds started to accumulate. I was able to acquire this '97 TJ in November 2008 with a goal to trail ride the final product by summer.* Many a many night and weekends were spent in the shop, transforming an otherwise bone stock teal TJ into what i have now.* Coming this winter will be the axles, which* are being built and will be:

Ford 8.8 / Disc brakes / 5.13 Yukon gears / Yukon Mini Spool / MORE 4 link kit

Waggy 44 (early 80's) / Yukon 5.13 gears / ARB / Yukon 4340 shafts / Yukon Super joints / TNT truss / Warn Premiums / Chev flattops / SKY Manufacturing Hi Steer Arms /
1 ton TRE steering with DOM

Take Care,
Tim

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.
