on the MC fronts free shipping and pirate 4x4 discount and no flairs.

Figured i should update this thread a little

Went wheeling in NY 2 weeks ago, 6* no top no doors and folded window frame


lost 2 beads during the day


and did this
Drew up a tree - YouTube

So the cool 10 years ago pacer wheels are going the way of the dodo bird. Picked up a set of soft 8s cheep this weekend and have a set of AtoZ beadlock rings on the way for them. no more lost beads


I did a little work on it today and built up a tub tire carrier for it, write up here

other then finishing up the beadlocks havent done much with the YJ this spring and summer


however big plans are in the works. my fiancee and I should close on our house in Erie PA mid August. That means the YJ will finally have a place inside where I can start to really address the things I dont like about the set up. The 5in BDS springs will be removed and replaced with 2in lift springs and I'll get correct length shocks.

If you are still in the Hudson valley you need to make it up to one of the meet and greets as MikDs before you leave.

The cage is from AtoZ fab. They did the weld up on it as well.

Looks like a nice space to work in and it looks like your making good progress on the rig or is that an "Illusion of progress"

Slowed down the last few weeks getting the house ready for thanksgiving but I did get the new decal on the tailgate today. Its from another forum I moderate on and its become a joke with a few of the guys I wheel with because I have a hat with the same logo.

played around a little in photoshop and came up with a Highlined metal cloak concept. I'd move the metal cloaks up 2 inches, most likely lose the inner cloak inner fenders for shock mounting and such. I would also remove the warn sliders and do a mini boat side.

before


concept

not a big update still in the part gathering phase but I did throw the 60 under it on jack stands to get some layout ides. With the 4 banger I should be able to run a 4 link front with out running into the motor using 10* angled lowers abd 25* angled uppers for the frame side link mounts.

I am loving your build plan... almost exactly the same as mine. I just got my Ford 9" and HP D44 today instead of the 60's like yours. I am also looking at the 14 SAW air shocks and building a custom Highline set up. You will have to check out my Photoshop job of mine on my build thread. When we get done we will have to hook up and go wheeling since we are about 60 miles apart.

the nice thing about the saws is they are nice and compact when compressed
