New project #2

Posted 01-30-2015 at 09:50 PM by papee

The score buggy was sold last year so it's on to the next project.

Earlier last year I bought a 95 YJ. It's in pretty good shape with a hard top, Safari top, and soft top. It has a 4.0 with 132k on it in excellent shape, a 5sp and 4:10 years.

I've fixed up the rust on the body and plan on some paint this spring. So far Ive just put on some 1 1/2" shackles to clear the 31" tires I'm running for now.

I'll be keeping the high pinion front axle because this rig won't see much hard core stuff other than some extractions and parts running at the short course races. I will be replacing the rear axle with a 8.8 disk rear I got from an Explorer. I've also purchased some Eaton lockers for both axles.

That's pretty much it other than a 1" body lift and a winch. I'll be daily driving this so I won't go much farther on this but I am considering linking it to keep the ride height down, a little stretch, and a better ride hopefully. I haven't decided if I want to go that far.
