Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.

Thanks guys. I'm always improving this jeep but modifications are starting to get really expensive and involved at this point. Things like 4 link suspension and an upgraded front axle with gears and locker start adding up fast. Maybe one day...

Here are some celebratory flex shots.

Alright you asked for it... Here's a short pictorial history. I don't have many wheeling pictures because it's usually just me and one other person.

First what it looks like when I bought it. Hard to express how bad it ran but it wasn't good. Got it a little cleaned up and took it wheeling on the 4cyl and 33's that it came with. Then came the V8 swap. After that, I really didn't think to take a whole lot of pictures.

Might as well do the one thing better than pictures...a video of me going up a trail at Adventure Offroad Park during the Crawling for Reid ride. I knocked the muffler clamp off so it started sounding a bit rowdy towards the end. Took 3 minutes to put it back on at the top but it's welded now. I forgot to turn the camera back on in the middle. In my defense...the JK ahead of me got hung A LOT and ultimately had to get winched out but I was very pleased with how my rig did.
