"Take 92" - YJ Link kit from Motobilt with Nines

For reference here is last build that had way to many changes in it so that is why I am starting a new thread.
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/jeep-hardcore-tech/1021890-impaks-wrangler-build-no-more-xj.html

So here is the Story..

After I wrecked my XJ racing it I decided I wanted an open top Jeep that my family of 4 could ride in and we could all enjoy it but then I also could go out with the guys on some hard trails and be able to keep up.

So After selling a bunch of parts I found a nice YJ

It is a 92 YJ with a XJ 4.0 and TJ NV3550.
My Plan is to rip out the dana 30 and 8.8 and replace them with 9's add a dana 300 and 4 link with sway a way air shocks.

Then I spent some time building a rear bumper, modifying a tire carrier, adding a winch, a battery box and the last thinking I need to do is mess with the axle disconnect tomorrow night..

as I needed to use the Jeep for the rest of the year till winter before I planned to rip out the axles

Well winter is here so it is time to rip out the axles and start on the new build

And so it begins.....

pulled out the rear 9" to start tearing it apart. Next is to build the nodular 9" center section and then clean up the axle( wire brush time)
