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
