Project OROR 93 YJ Build

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
Winch
Etc.
Etc.

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.

A little more about the rear axle, I used the Ruff Stuff brackets with 1975 K20 rotors and calipers. The D60 also came with an old Detroit locker that the PO did not know it had in it.

A little more progress on the rear axle.




Here I'm getting the old D30/35 out from under the Jeep.

Here I have got the new axles in place. There not bolted up yet but the Jeep is on its own weight.











Just for fun I stuck the wheels & tires up to it, the rear is on the axle the front is about where is will sit.

Here is about where I am at with the build, the rear axle is about done.





I have plans to move the vent hole & tube to the top of the center section Next I am going to send off my front knuckle and have it drilled and tapped to run hi steer.

I just moved into this house and I am waiting on the funds to wire up an outlet for the welder, then I can burn some stuff onto the axles. I'll post up more as I go!


Here is a few pics of the tires!

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.
Shop.overrockoffroad.com
I'll post up the few small things I've done here in the next couple of days.

^No more drinking and posting for me lol!^

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.

How it looked when I bought it.









The steering wheel is next, its got to go!
