89 YJ Build up

I hope that you all don't mind me sharing the transformation of my YJ project. I found this Jeep in very good shape, minus any drivetrain. Here are some pic's.

Rear axle is a 14 bolt Corporate - 4 link suspension

I am using a 4 link suspension with coilovers.

It has taken a lot of research and help from Novak, Poison Spyder, PSC motorsports, Edelbrock. I encourage anyone with interest in building a extreme Jeep to visit all these websites, and more.

I thought this was going to done in time to take to Moab, but it does not look like it will make it. Oh well, that gives me a year to learn how to drive it, and get a good paint job on it.

My Inspiration

Saw this rig in Montrose CO last year, this is what started the whole thing with my build up.

Everything looks like it's comin together nicely boss.

How do you plan on mounting your coilovers in the rear? There's some real easy trick ways to integrate a coilover hoop into your cage in the rear to strengthen everything up real nice.

18derrick, I gave the springs to a young Jeeper wanting to put them on his YJ. Trying to give him a start......lol

1BLKJP, I am letting PSC motorsports do the assembly on this coil over system. They have over 90 drivers in the circutt that compete in all the rock crawler competitions. The GM of PSC used to work for Poison Spyder. I am hoping that they know what they are doing. They just finished a Bruiser chasis with Unimog outers welded on the outside of 9" axles.......one bad little Bruiser.........all kinds of clearance under it. Lots of fun with this build up, and getting to know the people behind extreme rigs.

Well Viking I would say that they will probably take real good care of you. I haven't heard a bad thing abut Clifton nor anyone that does or has worked for him. PSC has a good rep too.

I was just more curious as to how you were setting it up because I like to see what everyone is doing different. Can't say that anything is wrong with a way a man sets up his rig, just say they are different.

1BLKJP, I will keep you posted on how they decide to do the loops for the coil overs. They just told me this morning that the Edelbrock MP fuel injection system, and ECM arrived this morning. And the front axle will get installed this week. So it is coming along.

By the way, do you wheel with the AZ rockcrawlers?

That Jeep is coming along nicely. I am sure that I am not alone when I say I'm jelous. One thing I am concerned about though...When are you going to be a proud Yj owner and add it to your sig.

I know several of them, but haven't ever wheeled with them yet. They are still a bit above my level. Todd will be runnin the WE Rock event this weekend in Globe. And I see a lot of the stuff that Mish and Barry do and currently my junk just isn't there yet. I still have to rely on mine to get a lot of places.
