|yjkid95||Can you tell be what 1985 toyota truck you got those rear springs out of? I want to do a 5 inch stetch eventually in the rear on leafs with a genright tank/skid and corner guards and this would be perfect.|

I put it in there to keep the wheels in proper alignment when I was cycling the suspension to check clearances.

My genright stretch corners just came in. I will reposition the axle forward one 1" to get it close to the center of the opening and probably trim the corners to fit the tires from there.
And this is where i stand now with the build. I will bend the brace for the fender this weekend. Just not sure on the final design yet.

Here is my hybrid YJ/Waggy spring pack. It consists of the main and second leaf from the front of a jeep wagoneer. The bottom 4 leafs are my stock yj leafs minus the main leaf. The hybrid pack is in the front of the pic compared to the stock waggy in the rear. It should keep it low like I want.

|Dempsey||Saw your build on pirate last week. So do you have to outboard your springs? Not sure if the wider yj frame is enough over a cj.|

Pulled the axles and sold them really quick for $400. Everybody wanted the 4.10's
Front Fenders gone

Cleaned up and in the garage. Cleaned up well, and thought really hard about flipping it.

My 89 YJ Build.
Alright, just thought I would document my Jeep build on here. OK, It's a 1989 YJ, 4 cyl 5sp. that I picked up for a grand.. Didn't run when I bought it, thought it was the fuel pump. When I got it home I noticed it was missing the fuel pump relay by the battery....hmm $10 later she fired right up. Thought about turning around and selling it, but decided to keep it and build it.
So here are the specs.
Dana 44 front from a 1979 F-250.
Rear 14 bolt from a 2003 2500HD with factory disc brakes
37" BFG Krawlers on some H2 Wheels
Wheelbase is 102"
Front springs are a hybrid pack consisting of stock waggy front main and second leaf and a stock wrangler pack minus the main leaf. About 2" Stretch
Rear Springs are stock toyota spring from a 1985 truck, provides about a 5" Stretch and offset perches for a 6" stretch.
