Well I went wheeling but I broke a few things

All passenger side. Bent front leaf spring. Sheared rear leaf spring eye bolt. Ball joints pushed out and ruined. Snapped u joint and then axle shafts.

I don't completely know. It most likely was the 20 mph speed off a drop off a 4 ft drop into a 2.5 ft deep hole

Well I have been slacking on photos so here are some. It's all back together and riding. Got new wheels on it too. I just ordered front tube flares, rear stretch corners, rock sliders and jb4x4 steering bracket so some good upgrades should occur in the next week or so. For now tho...









Also got new wheels on the tow rig due to unfortunate circumstances with a concrete barrier wall and a blown out tire. long story...

lol, your jeep spends more time in surgery than on the road! The winch appears to get exercised regularly... At least you are having fun with it.

Well since it has been cold and snowing. I have spent tons of time in the mountains on my snowboards. Not many trails to ride right now so the jeep has been sitting. But i finally got a warm night and got motivated to get some stuff done. Check it out.

GenRight Corner stretch


TJ flares installed too


Smittybilt steps/rock sliders




Doors off

Awesome build, very similiar to what I'm thinking for my '88. Where did you get the rear stretch corners?
