another basic YJ build

I picked up this 92 YJ from a fellow club member to replace my beat XJ. Got the basics right now just updating it a little keeping it a nice simple mild wheeler (blues and blacks at Rausch Creek.) Going to be a learning process for me I'll eventually step up and get tons under it.

Basics
1992 YJ 2.5L, AX 5, NP231 with an AA SYE kit
Dana 30 superior axles, lock right, BDS rock guard and 4:10s
Ford 8.8 with Trac Lock welded, Solid diff cover and 4:10
JCR 1 ton UTK steering
5in BDS springs with 1 1/4 warrior shackles
Wheel base stretched to 96inchs or so
Longer travel shocks with custom rear shock mounts
Warn rock rails, front and rear bumpers
15x10 Pacer wheels with 33 13.5 Pitbull rockers
170att power master alternator
Zenon extended TJ style fenders
and some offroad lights







I've got a set of stock height booms coming so I lower it down a little and a set of metal cloak fenders to replace the gay TJ flairs and bent up stock ones.

Took it wheeling last weekend at RC did well until we found that the frame had started to crack where the steering box bracket mounts photo of the damage soon. It road a lot better on the booms than the monster extended shackles it was on. After I get the parts together to fix the front frame section going to get a blue torch front cage kit for it.

Cracked frame were the steering box mounts. I should have the patch section in next weekend.


I also pulled off the Warn front bumper and 8274 plate. I don't think either one will be going back on the rig. Thinking about home brew stubby

Just my .02 on the front bumper. PUT ONE ON.
If you happen to whack that tube in your frame, it will royally screw up your outing.

Just saying. If you have the stock bumper, cut off all but 3" on each side of the frame, back it with 1/4" plate, run some bolts through 3" angle iron and make shackle mounts.

Finally picked up a trailer for it. An 18' open deck Parker. I also pulled off the rear plastic flairs to get ready for a set of metal cloak rears. I'm getting the first set of YJ stretch corners from them in about a month.

Well talked to metal cloak and the corners should be shipping monday i will make sure to take a bunch of photos. if any one wants to see something during the install of them let me know in a PM.

Also did a little more prep for them today by pulling off the old diamond plate corners. after the corners its time for some fab work I want the spare off the bumper.

finally wheeled it again. blew up a shock from over compressing it and my 5in BDS springs are really stiff. Debating on just getting a set of waggy springs on all 4 corners and dropping it another 3 inches or so, thoughts?

if I could keep it inside all winter and had the cash for the axle to run 37s I would go that route but right now It can spend more then a weekend inside and don't have the cash to build a set of 60s
