Cool 05 TJ 8.8 swap & 33's-SIlver Lake Bound Baby!

I know it isn't crazy.. but it just works soooooo good!!
My brothers and I tossed this thing together in a couple of cheap beer fueled late nights. We are getting prepped to head to Silver Lake sand dunes in just 8 days. Hoping to spend 7 trouble free days of dunes bashing while camping on the shore of beautiful Lake Michigan.
I am taking a 1998 4runner for a second rig for my 15 year old daughter to run also. She is 4'11" s of manual trans shifting fury!
The clock is ticking and we are wrenching late. Check out my shake down video and please comment, like, share, subscribe, and add in your $.02!
I have skin like a rhino from years in the car biz so don't hold back.... see you on the trail!
2005 Tj Sport

-SYE/custom driveshaft
-33x12.50x15 Milestar Patagonia's on steelies

...here we are taking it easy at the Mounds. A local 400 acre offroad park 10 minutes from the home front.

Looks like it should be a pretty solid platform to play in the sand with. Did you install the Ballistic 8.8 stuff yourself?
