Been here for a little while and posted a couple of times...
I've got a 99 WJ I picked up a couple years ago. Just finished a proper coil spring 2" lift (netted me more than that) and a couple of new tie rod ends.. I rebuilt the 4.0 completely about 10k ago. All new brakes, etc..
I had some stuff leaking at the sending unit assembly so i got a new seal and I'm going to replace the lines with fuel injector hose because the original connectors were rusted to heck. While I'm at it I'm doing a tank tuck.
Once I've got a few dollars next tax season I'm going to swap in some QD 3.73 Axles (D44 out back and matching D30 up front) and then put on a set of 31" either DuraTracs or Grabber A/T2's.
I'm toying with the idea of a custom long arm setup with my current coils. I don't necessarily want height as much as I want travel. We'll see. That's a LONG ways away..

|Subsrule||Hello all, I've been lurking a lot and thought I'd say Yo to everyone. I don't own a Jeep right now but it would be nice to change that. I bought a CJ-7 Renegade way back in 79. I kept it for 11 trouble free years and 88K miles. In that span I got married, had a son and "moved up" for lack of better words to other full size 4x4 SUV's of the GM persuation. I am too tall to own a CJ but I liked them and back then for $8 grand you had a new one loaded with the 304 and other goodies. That 304 is the most bullet proof motor I ever owned coming in a close second a Chevy 283 that even a kid in the 70's couldn't tear up. It was hard to sell it back then, the rust belt wasn't kind to it even though I tried to stay ahead of it. Having the extra room and luxury over the years was awesome but I still miss the Jeep. My first and only new vehicle purchase so it was special in that regard. I did some looking online and OMG are old Jeeps expensive in less than average condition. Now I plant my old carcass in an 05 Suburban and it is a wonderful rig, rides like a Caddy and has room for all the gear on trips but it's too nice to do anything with let alone the size Still hidden away there's the desire to get a Jeep and keep it forever.... I have been reading the builds on the Hardcore Jeep section of the Forum and it makes me want one even more. Around here there is nothing but corn fields no really good places to go wheeling but I could find uses for one. Sorry for the long intro, brings back fun memories.|

The names Stan. I'm not a newbie to the site but after acquiring a 1977 Jeep J10 I'm now hooked on anything Jeep. I wanted a different classic truck project and I certainly got my hands on a nice one.
Here's the vehicle named Bruce.

|lowlowkush||figured i would make my first post here to avoid someone with 48000 post talkin shat.... Name is Casey, been on pirate for a wile now, just researching for my build, from Ga. 95 yj, 400 sbc, pane, linked, ori's, 42's,44's whichever, etc, etc. Have spent countless hours reading and looking for answers, and did every single upgrade or fabbin that has been done..

Enlisted in the Air Force last month and due to the lower income I will be forced to sell my JKu. Without a large story I am here to research about the YJ as I will be building one instead.
Thanks for having me (maybe).

Sweet CJ-7 starting pumpkin upgrades
New, smew. Old smooth jeep owner x5. Got it just right for me w this near-stock '80 w factory 304/4 spd named "Truth." Ok, I mostly explore wilderness logging roads & search out ghost towns. So what! I'll come watch you break things if it's important to you, but why would you care???
Anyway, Truth is ready for a rear/front end upgrade & I'm looking at Redmond Powertrax Dana 44 w locker/Dana 30 anti-slip combo out of an '89 Cherokee. Thank you CJ owners for posting. Any imput is appreciated.
