YJ + 42s + full body = Mammer Jammer Rebuild

So after having the jeep for a year and wheeling it i have come to the conclusion as many have in the past that 37s, stock WB, and a 44/8.8 is just not going to be able to make me happy and take me where i want to go.

starting the rebuild thread here - plans are the following. Some of which i can do myself, some of which i will have shop do for me (time is a big factor with my career)

Sell the Waggy 44, use funds to buy front dana 60 (KP) and use waggy leafs up front for a 2" front stretch.

Sell 8.8, use funds for a 14 bolt. Ruff Stuff heims and link kit, FOA coilovers/coil springs - wanting to keep it low as possible

Currently in process: getting the comp cut corners painted to match body paint. New racing seats are in and new crow harnesses. A 351w on propane, np435 and np205 are replacing the 4 banger and ax5 - waiting for the tax return My plan is to keep the WB at 110" and make this as buggy looking as possible, while at the same time keeping my soft top (case i wheel in the cold/rain lol...us FL boys hate the cold I also want to keep this thing somewhat streetable - case the GF wants to take it to the beach. it will be 90% off road, 10% on road. intentions are alabama/tenn style wheelin cable hill, choco, grey rock etc...

Pics to come in a few days

Picked up a FF 14 bolt for $150. Its a SRW, 3.73 rear and open. I will be doing a shave on it, adding a diff cover, disks and 5:13 gears and a detroit/welded.

Ruffstuff has some awsome products. I use a lot of their stuff, from 4 link kit to axle kits. The only thing I didn't like about their 4 link kit is how high the truss sits.

That's what I was thinking. Maybe budget a better camera into the build.

I have my pics set to large by default. Can't remember off the top of my head how to do it though.

I welded my 14B and when I drive it on the pavement it's all over the place so I recommend a detroit. then again i'm a spooled D60 in the front with drive slugs as well.

14bolt Detroit is relatively cheap and it's easy as pie to install.

Will probably go Detroit because it is so cheap. This is going to be a slow build because of funds...trying to build a jeep and buy a diamond usually doesnt go hand in hand

Pics to come this weekend of the new seats etc....

***Update

Today was a pretty productive day. Seats are done. I used some Corbeau racing seats, and used their seat risers. They came out pretty good i think, and are pretty comfy. Just a little stiff, so i think they need to "break in"?? Anybody know about this?

For Harnesses i chose no other then Crow I went with the 3" wide version cause i heard they were a little more comfortable. I didnt get a submarine, and now realized i should have. When you pull the harnesses tight, it kinda rides up on you, so ill be getting those in the next month or so. They need some tweaking but im happy with the way they turned out and they are dang comfy when im all strapped in. Question - Do you guys go through the seats holes, or just over???



For the Harness Bar, i just used a standard bar and had it welded up to come clamps. I think this will be good enough for the time being. Angle look good to the experts out there???


Also finished the COMP CUT...and lovin it! sent them off for paint last week and had them put it on thick got the hardware and mounted them all up...came out pretty good. Ya, i know i need to remove that white crap on my rockers



Gas tank is in the bed of the jeep now to. for a short term fix basically. I have decided im going dual fuel with the 351w, so i need to find a way to mount a small fuel cell in there (10 gal ??), and still be able to fit a 43# tank in there. Anybody have any ideas??
For all you Pirate Fans

Finished the day by installing a set of LEDs from Grote. Supahh Blingg Anybody know what diod thingy to install for the blinkers to actually work??


It was a really productive day and things are slowly coming together with the "Mammer Jammer" build. Next step is either installing the 351w, np435,np205 OR stretching the rear. Depends on how much money i want to spend haha.

havent really done any work on the jeep lately, i have been so busy with work. BUT...some parts showed up
Got an Art Carr shifter for the C6.

Went with the standard rock gate pattern for now...just fiddlin around with it i can get it into R pretty dang fast....dont know what others are talking about. ill eventually get a reverse valve body, but trying to keep the funds down...at some point you just have to draw the line.

Here is the 351w and C6 all matted up together. I was having starter problems at first but narrowed it down to a flex plate problem got the correct flex plate for a C6 and got it to engage today. It wouldnt start because of a plug wire i think, but it sure does turn over. Im going to try some eather next weekend.

lastly the wire loom....anybody know where i can get a replacement duraspark harness? The actual box works fine i think but the wires are a hack job right now from the previous owner. Really need help on this one as i have been looking with no results. I have heard the JY but would rather go new if possible on this.

Your harness bar is too high, it should be about 4" below your shoulders. I don't know how you're gonna fit a gas tank and propane in a jeep? Sounds like it should be a pretty nice set-up once you get it going though.

I know i know...i need to lower it. i just havent gotten around to it yet

After doing some more research, im now back on the fence about which direction to go. Packaging is a big issue you are right as well as engine height. Its pretty much the last thing i will need to buy so i will see how much room i have when the engine is in.

This will answer more questions than I can...

As will this:

If I remember correctly, EL 12 makes the lights flash the right speed no matter what the load on it.
