Sure you're talking to halved but ill chime in and share ...

I have a '12 Sahara arctic. Eventually I want a 4" lift, new front bumper with brush bar and winch, light bar over windshield with 5 lights, and an exhaust / snorkel set up.

what i am doin

well i feel as though i am slow goin but so far i have done a 2150 carb swap, nutter bypass, 31's and 88 mustang seats. I would like to either pump up the 4.2 or go with a 318 or 360 dodge swap. from what i understand either of them should bolt up to my trans. I am also looking to do a 4" RC lift. I have found a used lift from a friend but I did my homework and they are the "new" white lettered non sagging springs. just trying to keep it within my meager, underfunded budget. I am eventually looking to find some folks who would like to show a new guy the trails nearby. I am not looking to crawl much but that might change once the wrangler gets an altitude adjustment. If anyone has any info or would like to help me find parts or anything really let me know. email me or something. lol mostly trying to have some fun with my new hobby. Talk to you all later folks.

what i been doin.

well kind of starting off in the middle but I picked up a used 86 318 police engine for cheap. went through it and now getting ready to put her in the YJ. pretty much got everything i need but the front motor mounts. So far I have managed to do everything with off the shelf mopar parts. Still trying to figure a few things out but won't be able to until the engine gets closer to done. If anyone one here reads this and has some input on a good machine shop near oshkosh that could help me make some mounting plates, let me know. I will try to get some pics up here soon of the whole works and maybe some swap pics.
