"New" trail rig owner

Whats up everyone don't have any pics but I just bought a 93 yj a couple weeks ago and just found time to register on here and find some help when I have problems with my jeep. all its got now is 30 inch mud tires (off brand) but they do alright now. I'll try to get pics soon.

Welcome. Congrats on the new rig.

Pictures. Preferably with you doing something slightly stupid. Driveways are all well and good, but mud is what I want to see!

Well as sad as it is to say I kinda broke it when I was wheeling saturday night so it will need some minor surgery before she hits the trails again, also does anyone know if cj leafs will fit on the yj frame? If no what kind of mods will it need?

You went wheeling, you did something at least slightly stupid, you broke it, and STILL NO pictures? This is seriously disappointing.

One of the YJ experts will weigh in on your spring issue soon, but it seems to me that they usually go the other way, with CJ owners using YJ springs. They're a little bigger and stronger. So I would guess you can do it, but you'd want a good reason. Like you're stealing them from a neighbors rig.

Actually they are 4 inch lift springs that I am stealing off my little brothers rig ha. Although he is in the process of some major suspension mods

nope, do not even try. yj springs are an upgrade for a cj, do not put cj springs on a yj. the yj springs are wider, softer, and more stable.
