Ok since I plan on doing tons over the summer I decided I would start up a YJ build thread too.

31" bridgestone A/t's



Work done so far

In the process of taking off trac bars (man they don't come off easy)

Just throwin it out there, with 2" of suspension, you probably won't need your sway bar. I do still have my track bar up front (too lazy to take it off and see how it rides) but the sway bar might not be neccesary. Maybe when i take my track bar off i can tell you how it rides, just some food for thought.

Everything else sounds great, i also want some booms but promised myself not to spend money on the jeep this summer, maybe if i sell some of my old crap or birthday money. Looking forward to the progress.

Not necessary for any driving? I wasn't really planning on putting on sway bar discos, but I figured i'd add it to the list. Herculiner would be good, I dont have any carpeting now. I'm also planning on putting in 2 pioneer 4x6 speakers in the front and maby a sound bar. I also forgot to put up some other work i've done

Installed a VDP center console

Put on the 2 tow hooks in front

Thats a great action shot!!

Well some say you will need the front track bar for highway driving. Like i said once i have the time to remove the front track bar i would be more than happy to report how it handles. I do mostly back country roads 50 at the max most of the time, maybe 60. Sounds like a busy summer, look forward to the build. I know that next summer could be busy for me, when my 33's run out i am getting 35's.

I'm glad to see someone is happy with wheeling the 2.5, with the right gearing it's a great off road motor. It's also easy on parts. You have a great set up going, you should have lots of fun without breaking the bank.
