I'm new here and figure what better way to get started then with a build! This build is going to be my company rig, "Project Over Rock Off Road" Something I can take to the trail or off-road events and have some fun!
This build is a 1993 YJ that I picked up about 1 year ago and is currently undergoing an axle swap. When I purchased the Jeep it was a bone stock YJ with 150k.
I have already done a few small things like a 1" body lift, front shackles and a couple other things.
Plans for this build:
Axle swap 8 lug Dana 44/60 from a 78 F250
37/12.50/17 Goodyear MTRs
17" ProComp LaPaz series wheels
Bumpers, tube fenders & armor, cage, sliders, Etc.
SOA for now with plans to link it over time
Fill the axles with Yukon gears, axles, & lockers
SYE, Belly up skid
This is what I started with.
The axles, Dana 44 front & 60 rear
After some clean up and tear down.
Disc brake swap on the 60
I was curious to see what the weight difference between the drums and the rotors where. Not including the backing plate and shoes just the drums vs the rotors it was an 8 lbs difference.
Thanks, updates are not a lot lately just a few small things. I've been dumping a lot of time and a little bit of money into trying to get my new online store going.
I'll post up the few small things I've done here in the next couple of days.
Small update I put in a battery box. I've had it laying around since I owned my Cherokee. I could not get it to work right in the XJ so I kept it and decided to stick it in the YJ. I also pulled the stock brackets out and cleaned them up and painted them with some heat resistant flat black.
I also turned the dash from tanish brown to black. I will be changing out the seats over time to black, for now they will get black seat covers.
