Well guys.. I did it.. traded in my 1990 yj that I've been building up for the last 3 years while I was in college.. its sad to see it go.. but I graduated with a great accounting job lined up to begin in early January. So for my trade in.. I picked up this 2010 jk sport.. 6-speed. 32k miles, super clean, super quiet, super, comfortable. Hate if you must.. its really nice. Already has some mods too. mud tires, grey front grill, rear light quards, etc. Here she is.. love it..

Looking very good my friend..

|AllMudd||Are you going to remove those track bars so it won't limit your suspension travel?|

Ok! Got the tailpipe in last night! you can see what it looked like before at the top of this page and the previous post! I like this so much more! Its an "actual" yj tailpipe, fit for a yj. haha and it actually fits! this doesnt usually happen for some reason.. but this actually worked out! Its a little quieter in the tub, now that all the sounds goes out the back instead of ending underneath the center console lol. :x andddddd it gave me some clearance near the t case drop since the muffler and tailpipe before were kinda resting on it and hanging on the axle.. it was actually really dangerous come to think of it :/ but this is awesome, looks, sounds, and feels better. for only $20, you cant get much better!
Look how far down this thing used to hang!
Here are some shots of the finished product.. hard to get good angles :/

Well, it has been a little bit since ive posted.. got some mini updates.. First off.. the corner/side panels i was sizing up in previous posts, are done.. just gotta get them on. And for that, i need some sort of silicon or gasket of some sort, and do a small amount of cutting.. will only take an hour or 2 max to get them on when i finally go get some gasket stuff lol. but i also just bought a used tailpipe finally! haha. Not sure if anyone has noticed but ive never actually had a real yj tailpipe.. either a cobbed tailpipe out of flex like this thing:
or a cut-off after the muffler lol, like this:
But now, I bought this! for $20 from a local jeep guy! gotta love the jeep community
So, that abouts covers where i am.. with about a maximum of 3 hours worth of time at my uncles garage i should have all these mini-mods covered!

|Acidhouse||Just went through this thread from beginning to end. Awesome man. I just bought my black, pos YJ that needs everything. This weekend my "build" is going to start with trying to get it to run without stalling or backfiring.|

|ChicoJeepy||That armor is going to look killer. I wish I would have thought that up! Good job.|

Okay, here is my sheet metal templates up to where they will be! Though i think i may have altered them some after taking this pic! :P They have 2 coats of yellow paint on them! after this post, there will be a third coat! tell me what you think of it so far!
Remember that these arent mounted or anything.. so if they dont look very flush.. its cuz they are just kinda sitting on top of the flares..
And heres a few of the jeep during a beautiful (finally) day!

|AllMudd||Kinda curious why you wouldn't upgrade the D35 since it is unreliable? It would cost too much more than what you had spent on the 35.|
|07-11-2013 05:10 PM|
|wranglerbrother||Ps. My gramma is gonna make me some seat covers for the back seat! She will start soon! Shes very good at that sort of thing.. quilting and sewing clubs for many years is coming in very handy!|

Ok, And someone requested to see my recovery kit that i have going! (not complete)
Here is it!
Tow straps, Chains, Hose clamps
Inside the little recovery box..
few more hose clamps, bungie chord, two flashlights (one wind up, one LED i think), $1 switch blade, Electric current tester, and then the screw driver with a few removable bits.. a lot of nuts and bolts too. And the shovel on the inside of the tailgate
Back seat is in too! with the speakers in the back!
And some CJ corner panels that my cousins gave me for free since they have a billion spare cj parts.. I will do something cool with them
Anddddd lastly! My latest project.. This is the rough template for the sheet metal body armour im gonna fab up
So the idea with this is to cover up the big welding line left under that template :P Its not suppose to be very "functional" .. More cosmetic than anything else.. Gonna cut up some 24 gage sheet metal that was left behind at the shop and cut it to size, paint it yellow, and mount black self-tapping screws about .5inches in from the sides and about every 2-4 inches on the sheet metal. What do you all think? Im excited for it!
|07-11-2013 04:52 PM|
Alright.. some updates!!
got my jeep back with a good axle! (hopefully) lol.. cost enough.. Im about out of sheckles to spend on upgrades at the moment but a few things have changed and a few mods are to come that are free
Heres the new dana 35.. doesnt look to pretty.. but.. man.. its pretty functional.. i guess.. lol
