Well i am pretty ready to post my build here. This all started three years ago when i bought the damn thing and paid way to much and over the past three years its transformed it from my d.d. to not my d.d. like the title says this is a college kid build. i am not going to tell you i am a broke college kid and then turn around and dump 5k into my axles. i know there will be room for improvement on a lot of things but as it breaks ill upgrade it. i know i have a good base to start from and i can upgrade as i go along so feel free not to tell me that i should upgrade this or that i know what i will eventually need to make this rig bullet proof:flipoff2: here's what the specs are going to be for now

stock 4.0 - 124k
NP435 - Completely rebuilt with the Novak adapter
NP231/dana 300 - was already in the jeep just blew the transmission
dana 60's front and rear - out of an 88 dodge w250 rear getting a disk brake upgrade and eventually 35 spline shafts w/ detroit.
37" goodyears on 12 bolt h1 double bead-locks
all brackets and heims from ballastic fab heims are chromoly 7/8 x 3/4 bore.
rear double triangulated 4 link
front 3 link
uppers are 1.5" by .250 wall
lowers are 2.0" by .250 wall
also reusing half of my skyjacker lift kit. staying coils on all four corners.

now we all now this thread is useless without pictures and no one is even reading this anymore so here we go:
