Oh...hell yeah! That baby looks killer.

One question though: Why swap out the Dana 300? IIRC the Dana 300 is a pretty beefy t-case.

That depends on where they are mounted. But realistically its not something I would do. Just a novelty kind of idea.

Yeah, My YJ was my daily drive for along time, and then I finally flipped it over backwards and roller it.. Insurance totalled it out... I made it bigger and better with the money they gave me, and it pretty much became a trailer queen except here around town..

Now this one is not street legal, but i will be working on that.. Hopefully next year it will be street legal.

But not being your daily driver sure makes it easier to step on the pedal alittle bit more.

Thanks for the compliments guys..

Stinger, nice ride! I didn't think you was going to be able to get over that last one! What kind of suspension mods did you do, if any?

If your talking about this buggy, the only thing I have had to do to it so far is clean it up alittle bit, and I also bought an Atlas for it.
