HEY! I totally forgot to do the build thread I intended to do. Now that I'm almost done I'll play catch up.
Hello all! I have lots of fabrication experience with hot rods, customs and motorcycles, but none with Jeeps. I've had a couple Wagoneers, but never a Wrangler, and I'm looking forward to beating the crap out of this YJ because I really don't like Wranglers.
It came with...
-Auto tranny with aftermarket cooler installed
-Full width Wagoneer axles front and rear. About 6" longer wheel base.
-Front axle Dana 44
-Rear axle Ford 9" bottom cut for more clearance
-ARB air locker in rear
-Warn hubs and Yukon axles.
-Full-size disc brakes all 4 corners.
-Double CV driveline front and rear
-Borla header with ca carb exemption.
-AFE cold air intake with ca carb exemption
-Brand new 37x12.50x 17 BFG km2 tires and spare.
-Brand new XRC front bumper
-Brand new Waterproof XRC 12000lbs winch (still need to wrap the syn. line)
-Brand new XRC rear bumper
-Brand new XRC tire rack swing out
-Tuffy Center Console
-Custom roll cage
-Front and rear rock lights
-Plus a bunch of extra junk I've pretty much sold all of (incl. a set of 38" Irok Swampers)
-About 21K on the replaced motor and trans
-So far everything works, runs and drives great
Paid $8.5k and feel like I did pretty good.
I'm not an Internet crybaby, so opinions are welcomed. :2thumbsup:
How it looked when I got it...
