I want to see your custom builds!

I had a ton of fun cutting everything I didn't need off my 99' TJ and building burly tree guard fenders back on to it. I want to see what other extremes people have gone to on their jeeps.

I could be easily missing the point here but can i ask why? I mean jeeps are loved for the short wheel base that helps immensely offroad. Youve extended that to even longer than a jku probably. Looks like clean work though, so props to ya there.

I had bought some Unimog axles and 49" Goodyear MTR military tires back before there was a JK, and the guy that was to build my Rims screwed me around for about a year, so I wound up selling the Big stuff and went with JK axles many years later (even though I had already lengthened it). I had about wheelied over backwards several times while climbing in the original configuration so I might as well keep it long, it drives great, and will wheel where I want to use it in Colorado/Utah. I should never have gone with the JK front end, it does not have enough separation angle to allow for proper pinion alignment and enough caster....

Makes sense, just seemed like a lot of work when JKs exist but you did it before hand! Either way, looks good, impressive work. One of a kind too!

I see it's a lot more than just suspension... I was just curious what kind of cost one would be in on a long travel lift like that. I don't even want to fathom the time and cost on the whole build

The front 4 link on my old Willys is no secret,it is a ORD 4 link kit for a K5 Blazer.They run about 3 grand for everything, including the shocks.The wagon sits on a k5 frame so it worked out pretty good.
