my fast yj build

well i just recently got home from deployment and as some of you may know my wife bought me a 93 yj while i was gone and gave me free reign with the bank account for parts lol so anyway ive gotten quite a few things done so far but i figured it would be a good time to start this thread so on to the mods..
so far i have installed the..
2" body lift
rear corner guards
rock sliders
tube fenders
front bumper
front and rear grab handles

i still have to mount my winch aand mounting plate, finish the 8.8 swap after my axles come back from getting regeared, get the rear bumoer/ tire carrier mounted, center console mounted, and leds put in the dash and i will finally be able to drive it and i know it didnt happen unless theres pics so on to those lol i dont have many but i can show some before and afters

and now to the fun part ab an hour after those pics were taken we were almost back to pavement and about to head home when i noticed when i turned my steering wheel full lock to the right the wheels were barely turning and it ended up that my frame was rusted pretty bad behind the steering box and chose at that time to break. although i was glad it happened at the end of the trail and not on the highway i was a little upset anyway. so we limped her to my buddies house and got her on his trailer and took her home

the next day i went put and got a piece of 2x4x3/16" tube and some 1/4" channel to fix the frame and decided that the passenger side looked a lil rough to so we would replace it as well and after 2 days she was back to normal

Thanks for the update. I was wondering how it was coming. Seems you've been busy. I learned tonight how "helpful" it is to have good tools and an air compressor when owning a Jeep. I believe a torch is in order next.
