My first yj

So in July of 2013 I turned 16 years old and got my license, all that was left was a car. I had 4500 saved up and brought a 92 jeep yj with a 3 inch spring lift on 33 good years. This was how it stayed for about three months until I started reading about a soa. I thought this was going to be easy and fast, and wow was i wrong it took me 4 months and $800 later just to get where it was 50% done. All I need now is a cv and sye. Then I was reading about a ford 8.8, I order a rebuilt 8.8 from ecgs for $1400. This is coming sometime in August. I am now working on getting 4.88 gears and 35 inch pro comp mud tires. So far I am loving how it's turning out, and any advice would really help.

Thanks, david

Looks like your steering will hit the leaf no? And I have old procomp mud terrains and they love to hold onto mud and not clean out very well.

I am not to positive on the setup. But I do know that you can do the steering without any new things. If you look for ibuildembig...he does SOA with stock steering and stock rear DS. The biggest or hardest probkem is the front axle. Getting the camber/caster set correct cause if not you will get seriouse death wobble and tire wear. The rear axle just getting the pinion angle correct and that its centered.

Looks sweet. Only thing I noticed is it looks like your shocks are mounted upside down. The boots should be on the top mount side

Shocks dont care if they are right side up or not. They still dampen the road vibrations either way.

True they will work but the rod is more susceptible to getting bent by a rock or damage that would cause a seal failure. Not disputing you just my opinion

Thanks, but it's to late now because I can't flip the shocks.
