Just got the suspension lift finished and drivable. The new Rancho shocks about broke me; ouch! I got three inches by adding two springs a side. I need to attached the e-brake and adjust the steering wheel.

New alpine head unit, and fixed the blown bulb behind the heater controls. Oh, and I pulled the fake wood grain off the dash, that someone thought was cool in '92.

That may have been a high dollar option back then. I think it was called the Clark Griswald Option Package.

Coming up soon will be a new air horn, seats and Im making custom quick release brackets for the rear seat. Its also getting new Kicker dash speakers and new Kickers in the sound bar. Why put money in the bank when I can just put it in a jeep (I trust my bank more anyways)! Good day Ya'll

On my 2 year long (so far) YJ-CJ build, I cut out the holes and temporarily installed LED stop-turn-tail lamps and backup lamps.

There is more to it then that. It can be worse on fuel, but can also be better on fuel. Depends on what you do to your jeep in regards to tires and lift.

Pretty sure I'm not supposed to be on most of those little "roads". But I don't do damage.

Come to NSB by daytona TONS of places to mud. Like redneck capital here lol

Sounds good!


Just finished the Durango box rebuild... it was a little odd because the instructions for the seal kit I got, specifically for my model steering box, was different than the order of seals I was pulling out... but I put everything back the way the instructions told me and had to use a press to get most if them, and some hardcore pounding to fit back in so the retaining clips and what-not could do their jobs... Actually had guys from the other side of the factory come over wondering who was making all the racket.. haha!
BUT shes all done! Putting it back on(while crossing my fingers theres no leaks this time!) and retuning/fine tuning the engine tomorrow!!

Installed new rocker armor

And a new antenna for the stereo that rarely gets used. I have the iPod connection but whatever. My previous antenna was broken and looked like crap. Easy $8 fix

It a long list of items on my '92 that I've been working on to get it roadworthy again. Brakes have been completely rebuilt, new tailpipe, new rear shocks, a lot of new metal put into the body. Getting new(to me) upper soft doors with glass sliding windows today. Should have it ready for Pa. inspection here shortly.

Put my buddies new to him YJ up on the lift. Seems the skid plate had never been removed, so he took the wire wheel to it to get rid of any scaling and hit it with paint. I cut out his front trackbar for him. Didnt have enough cutting disks on hand to remove the rear on though. This Jeep will be SOA like mine soon enough.

Also cleaned up some wiring in mine. Put it on the lift so I could run it in gear a couple times and make sure the speedometer was working again since that was where the wiring was toast. All fixed now.

Installed the steering gear when i got some from work at 330am with no light but a flashlight and feeling around... then drove her about 80miles round trip to see the GF off on her weekend getaway... when i got home I inspected the gear again for leaks - none to be found! Then retuned the engine with my brand new vacuum gauge and found was only ONE inch of pressure off from the optimal when i tuned her last by ear!

... debating about changing her oil later just for the heck of it.. she'll be due in a bit anyway... hopefully someone hits me up to go wheeling this weekend..
