I got my York 210 mounted up today for my OBA. Now I need to trim the mount and build the rest of the goodies.

Dropped from 35 inch mud terrains to 33 BFG All Terrains.. 100% better. 35 were too much for my 2.5 to handle. I can now use 5th gear and go 75 MPH.. The snow pic is before, with the 35s

Put my CJ style mirrors on. Not bad for $26.

Parked it in its temporary resting place, at least until it gets a new engine under the hood.

i found a set of different wheels with like 235 something tires on them (nice aggressive tread) pulled my 33s off and threw them on---got over 60 more miles out of a tank of gas,,nice suprise and they will climb and dig like crazy..

i cant wait to put some new 33s on her but have thought about 35s---but man it,s nice passing gas stations for awhile--lol

i have stock gears with the 2,5 5 speed,,----i just may wait untill i regear before i put the 35s on...also put in an 8.8 and then drop in my v8,,

hey jack, looks like your new paint is holding up well,,,what paint did you use ??

waiting on good weather to do an od rattle can on mine..

Parked mine while I figure out what I'm going to do to it. I'm the mean time I'm driving a 92 Cherokee that I just picked up that's running a 3' lift with 33's

When I painted I used Duplicolor perfect match. It's holding up well. In the spring I'll be stripping it down and bedlining the whole thing.

The 35s were too much on my old 2.5. 33s are so much better!

Fixed a leaking seal at the back of my SYE. Officially finished the lift, SYE, AX15 rebuild, clutch and axle swap (4.10's now!). Also installed (almost) brand new seats I found on CL...not bad for $135!

Looks good! I bought a Wheelskin a few years ago for a different vehicle but I never put it on. I think I'm going to put it on the YJ.

Managed to break my Passenger side hub, and screwed up my brake system. Had a full day of wheeling though and my new Spartan locker works great!

Just got my motorcraft 2150 to replace my carter on my 89 wrangler. For a novice how long should the process be to swap? Any things I should watch out for from people that have done this swap?
