I plan to throw it back in as you see it above but some time in the future I would like to put a truss on it to give it a little more support. I am sure that the 35 will not last forever so the upgrade I go to will most likely be a 44 but until then I will just beat on the 35 until it has nothing left.
that i understand. i'm the same way, my whole build will not look all that radical at first sight. almost a sleeper wheeler

jpdocdave nice, what size tires you runnin? i gotta ask, you can obviously get some work done, why build that one? its so easy for someone that can weld to throw in a cheap scout or other d44, i got mine for 100 bux.

Since I have recently gotten some work done on something other than a CJ I figured I would post some of the progress I made on my YJ. I have had the rear axle out and sitting around the garage for some time. I just finished putting it all together and now it just needs to go back in. Done so far: SOA, 4.10 gears, stronger axle shafts, Richmond lockright locker, converted the drum brakes to disks out of a ZJ, POR15, and closed it up with a rockcrusher diff cover.
