Yesterday I purchased a salvage 2006 LJ from daveysjeeps. This has less than 15k miles. It might make a nice daily driver. I wanted something to work on as I am nearing completion on the 2003 project and have completed two other Jeeps (that I sold) to fund my addiction.
The left front is wasted as well as the TC. The TC is cracked and will be replaced with a 241. Dave (daveysjeep) told me that a lot of Jeeps with front end damage have cracked TCs. The front axle LCA mount and arm needs replacement. Obvious body panels will be installed. New airbags are needed.
Over the course of the month I plan to take this stock LJ and upgrade the drive train. My first thoughts wre just to install Rubi D44s and the TC in and be done. Body work and interior completed.
I'm leaning towards a Clayton Long Arm kit with 35s. We'll see as we get deeper into it. I should receive it here in CA the end of the month.
