New to the site but not to Jeeping

Hey everyone!

I just ran across this site doing some google research on body mount bolts for my 1991 YJ. Low and behold this site was one of the search results. Sweet!

I am alway down for another place to gather info for my build. I have a 1991 YJ that was gifted to me by my Step dad. He bought it at an auction YEARS ago with a blown 2.5. Its bone stock and plenty rusty (that tends to happen here in MN). Well now that its in my possesion it getting a new lease on life.

355 Chevy small block
Turbo 350 trans
3/4 axles from a 77 F250 (HP d44 front, d60 rear)
Retain np231 (rebuild, wide chain, 6 gear planetary and ss sye)
Stretch wheelbase, BDS leaf springs

Those are the goodies planned for it. Then of course there is all the other stuff that goes along with a good ressurection. So lots of rust repair, complete rewire, paint, custom fabbed protection goodies, etc. Its going to be a long road, but once I have started to make some big progress I will start a build thread.

I cant wait to get it rolling.
