I plan on wheeling mine all year, but when winter 2008 comes around, she will be going under the knife for some major work.
As of lastnight, I have scored a Dana 60 for the front that has already been narrowed to 65", it has 513 gears and a detroit locker plus its a kingpin, the pumpkin has already been turned up to help with the driveline angles. It is also the high pinion reverse rotation. I also scored a rear Dana 70 that has been worked over with all the goodies.
She will be getting Some sort of coils, maybe kingcoils or whatever I can find the best deal on.
The best thing she will be getting is a LS1. I have already found a source that may be able to hook me up with all the goodies on it as well. I will be putting a turbo 350 behind it. I will have to have my Atlas II sent off for a new shaft so that it will all work together.
Then, She will be getting 4 linked all the way around.
Plus, I will be having to get new beadlocks since my 6 lug wheels will not work.

Once the year is over, I will have to sale my rear 60 and my Dana44 with warn shafts and CTM's and 513 gears and locker.
I will also be saling my 4 cylinder and the Auto trannie that I have hooked to it.

So I guess you could say that I am EXCITED !!!! I have already been having trouble sleeping just thinking about it..

1. Getting new rotors and drums so I can fix the brake pulsations myself. Hill Kelly Jeep had 5 attempts to fix it under warranty. They're not allowed within 100 feet of it anymore.

2. BFG 31 x 10.50 All Terrain KO's

3. A set of these.


4. Hopefully enough left of my income tax return to get a hardtop.

Thanks. I'm hoping these aluminum wheels are lighter than the steel. My hunch is that they'll be about the same though.

my alloys are definitely lighter than my steel wheels

i wanna add a front bumper with some lights and maybe some trail corners. eventually tube fenders and a new rear axle (prolly 8.8) with a regear up front. with that also comes some bigger tires and i'll have to find a way to clear those bigger tires. also, sye w/ cv shaft and the rear adjustable uppers and tons of armor.
