YJ RUSToration

As some may know, I started a 1 ton swap thread here: Another 1 Ton YJ I Guess

Well as I was building these axles, things got a little involved... and expensive. Just Empty Every Pocket right?

I am now doing a restoration on my jeep. I bought a frame to replace my patched/rusted/cracking frame and had it hot dipped in galvy

Pretty excited about it now. I'm determined to have a reliable, capable, rust free jeep. This is just the beginning. hoping to put a motor in it next year. Ideas being: 4.6 Stroker I6, Cummins 4BT with some goodies, or a 350 stroked to 383.

I put the rebuilt Dana 60 on the springs and mocked it under the frame. Next week I will be taking my jeep apart for the shackles, bushings, and 2 of the springs to complete the suspension on the chassis. Still waiting on the rear to come back from the gear shop.

Frame and the Dana 60 waiting for shackles. the frame is not at its final height yet.


From the rear...


New Daystar poly frame-to-shackle bushings front and rear...



More progress to come later in the week!

got the motor pulled yesterday. what a task... the body and frame are on my trailer. going to cut the body mount bolts tomorrow and hopefully pull the sucker off, pressure wash the bottom, then POR15 the bottom of the body and firewall. I'm also going to POR15 the skid plate and the gas tank skid as well as some other misc. parts.

I still have to degrease the motor and possibly paint it. then i have to weld the cracked manifold and weld up the new 2.5in exhaust system. Finally i will have an exhaust with NO leaks!

Here is the motor in. BTW that is not my pinion angle; its not weled yet it just spun on me yesterday. More pics to come.

Project looks good so far. What springs/suspension are you going to go with? I just picked up my D60's last weekend for a build for my girlfriend.
Here's that thread: https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/m...riend-1327158/

I didn't really have the money for new springs so i used my existing 4in rough country springs in the back with the smallest leaf taken out in the rear. I had a replacement pair from rough country so i took the same leaf out of those and used them for the front. both are sprung-over with 1 inch shackles and all new poly bushings. I figure its about 9-10 inches of lift.

When I have some more money after i stop paying for school i'm going to upgrade to a BDS 2-3.5 inch spring.

Progress: Got the body off. haven't drilled the old bolts out though. got the gas tank and skid off and moveed the fuel lines over (they look like they're in good shape). The gas tank skid was in pretty rough shape so a new one is getting ordered tomorrow along with new straps. I got the trans skid and fuel filter mount painted with POR-15. Going to install them tonight. New fuel filter also. The old one poured out black gas haha

Just uploaded some old pictures before I got the rolling chasis together. These are from about 2 months ago

Got the E-350 master cylinder fully bench bled and installed, most hard brake lines installed, all new 12 inch braided brake lines installed, and OBA hooked back up.
Only things left to do:
-Flare + install passenger side rear axle hard brake line
-Flare and install hard lines from the master to the distribution block
-Bleed the brake system
-Pick up the rear driveshaft from the shop and install it
-Weld the rear spring perches to the axle
-Re-install the drivers side front fender

Then i'll take her out for the maiden voyage!

Latest picture. Just have to fix a brake line leak, bleed the system again and weld the rear spring perches and she's ready to drive.

Hope it starts/runs/functions right haha first motor/frame/body swap

Finished it up friday and took it out for a drive. put about 100 miles on it. Found a small coolant leak and I have to re-weld a shock mount up front because the steering arm was hitting it. still waiting for the rear shocks to come in from Quadratec. might have to order degree shims or use my old ones because I messed up the driveshaft angle a touch. doesn't vibrate though. rides really soft and smooth. once the rear shocks come in it should be real smooth.
