This one, built by a friend of mine (mrblaine)...
HP 60's front and rear.
Atlas 5.0 2 speed with 5:3X in the diffs
39" BFG red label Krawlers
Fox 2.0 14" travel coil overs at all 4 corners
Nitrogen air bumps in cans from Poly in the front and ones that I made in the rear.
104" wheelbase on a TJ short wheelbase tub
Genright aluminum rear corners blanks 3/16" 6061 T6 that I cut the wheel openings in so I could save the tailgate hinges
Genright hi line tube fenders up front
Genright mini boat side rockers
Genright coil over hoops
We built the rear subframe, gas tank enclosure, cross bar for the rear of roll cage so the Viking top will still fit.
Modified Rock Hard overhead center bars to slide them forward to butt up against the A-pillar clamp collars
Built a new set of body mounts underneath the rear.
Raised the body mounts on the sides of the frame
Kept the stock coolant overflow reservoir even with the relocated steering pump from PSC.
I built the brakes from scratch. Ford F-150 calipers on Dodge Ram 1500 13" rotors that I modified to work. (mrblaine's words I cut and pasted).
My words... this TJ is, without doubt, the best built and coolest TJ I've ever seen on the trail. The attention to detail is nothing short of breathtaking. I got to see it while being built in Blaine's garage and later on the trail in Johnson Valley Calif. This TJ works amazingly well.
When you have a choice, buy American.
