baddkarmaracing Names Richard just found this thread but been here a couple days and already pissed some one off! But I'm planning a yj build on the cheap and already started a thread for some ideas. Oh and I have a jk on 37's so I'm hardcore, even if it has stock axles! Actually my jk sucks because the suspension is set up all wrong for the 37's and its on stock axles because I'm broke hence the reason for a cheap ass yj build

Hello All

Hello All,
My name is Brian and I am new to the Jeep world. I have inherited a CJ5 that has a 304 in it. My plan is to rebuild & or restore this jeep to my liking, not sure which way to go so I will be looking for a lot of advice.

Newbie from south east Ark

Hey there, I've been looking for a solid forum to join and I'm glad to be a member of this one. Seems to have a lot of good info on a wide range of topics. I'm also a newbie cj owner. Here's my 83 cj7 as it sits right now.

Again, glad to be a member

More newb than newb

Hey all, I'm new to this for the most part and thought I'd join some forums for some inspiration and direction in creating my first monster. I'm barely looking into buying a vehicle now and am torn between an XJ or 4runner. Leaning more towards the XJ, any input on either?

wotaddict New to this forum. been on cherokeeforum but sorta getting tired of the same questions/answers... and for most of my questions i have i always seem to end up back here on pirate...so decided to join up. my 92 cherokee was given to me when i turned 18 in 08 by my grandfather who i was very close with and who bought it brand new.... that got the ball rolling. learning experiences. well anyway it now is my toy. pretty standard stuff as of now, open d30 up front, locked 8.25 rear. np242 h&t, froehlich's 4 link kit, other shit and last fall swapped a 5.2/44re in it from a 96 grand cherokee. this is a low budget project so nothing too fancy...yet...






so is there anywhere for builds?

RonJon69 Hello everyone,

Looking to do a frame off CJ5 build in memory of my father who passed away a couple years ago. He was a Jeep enthusiast and left behind a large collection of Jeeps and Jeep parts, I joined hoping to get some direction and advice.

Dcel Hey guys, Newbie checking in!
This is a cool sight, im happy to be part of it.
So here is my current project that I picked up a couple of moths ago for next to nothing on CL.
Its a 73(?)CJ5 with a healthy small block.
It came with an close ratio M21 (of all things) and a Dana 20 with a Trans-adapt kit.
The ratios sucked, so I just swapped in a 79 J20 T-18/D20 with a Novak short input shaft kit. Its fully (!)caged and tied in at every point to the frame which is boxed and plated. Somebody spent a lot of effort to build it!
Im trying to decide if I should pull it completely and start over or cut and paste what I have.

Another Newb

Hello to all! Just checking in. I've been lurking in the background for a few years, learning what I can as I break my jeeps. Decided to pull the trigger and get a membership and check it all out.
I've been running a 06 wrangler until i decided to upgrade axles and now it sits until i get back home from overseas again. Saving my cash until I can set it up right when I get back. Take care everyone.

Peter_72 My name is Peter I'm a 42 year old kid/father and I live in Louisiana, I joined this site a while back but never really had a vehicle to play with until now. I recently purchased a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4x4 for my son's first vehicle so I'll be browsing around for tips and ideas. I bought it for him but it's really like both ours but it mine lol

Tjramsy Hi all! My name is Tyler and just before this long cold new england winter, I acquired my very first jeep! It is a 99% stock red, 4.0 auto TJ wrangler!

I have some big plans for this jeep, with a pretty farfetched goal of making it to moab 2016. I plan to make a build thread soon to organize my ideas and record my progress.

I am finishing up some work on my CRF, then I'll be hopping right in the jeep project to start sourcing parts!

Here for the worst of reasons.

I've posted here before in the bead rolling thread so I'm not exactly a newbie.

My background is in drag racing and hotrods as a fabricator/engineer.

I helped Pops build both of his Jeeps and my interest in the affair was more to keep him from doing something stupid and or dangerous. It didn't take me long to figure out he got them to do mildly stupid and dangerous things.

His profile is Pirate4x4.Com : 4x4 and Off-Road Forum - View Profile: Castor

He passed away Jan 27th and I have both the Jeeps now. The 89 YJ is going to my daughter and I'm keeping the 06 LJ.

I hope to be a regular contributor here as my failures tend to be epic and should provide an endless stream of entertainment to those that actually know what they are doing.
