Figured I'd go ahead and make a build thread, need to make a list of things I need and to keep track of what's been done.
Picked up a 92 yj, 2.5 5speed with a SOA lift 35" mtrs, brand new top and a whole heap of problems, but it has a winch!. Most of the things were done correctly with a few hiccups, like wiring! It's everywhere!! Good god and it's only got 3 aftermarket lights...and 8 switches albeit probably had allot more goodies lol
This thread is also open to suggestion, I've never built a wrangler before and I only had brief experience with a zj lol been more of a Toyota guy but i beat and rolled my runner out of existence. The 4runner being the 3rd Toyota I've built I figured it was time for a change...y'alls aftermarket sure is nice!
Goals: I'd like to build a moderate wheeler on 37"s and be able to drive it to and from the trails but with a little more comfort. I know realistically these axles are doing allot to put up with 31"s so I'm looking for easy axle swaps. Probably the Ford explorer 8.8.. And I guess either a mid 70s Ford Dana 44 or wagoneer 44.
list of to do's:
Phase one, to get it on the trails.
1: front springs are bent so probably all around, stock wagoneers? apparently stock front toy springs with as well. Any insight would be helpful, been going through alot of builds but more info is always appreciated
2:Change the cracked ax5 bell housing,(ordered one for a 94 external slave so I'll be converting yay.)
3: Change clutch, flywheel, pressure plate and rear main. "Ordered"
4: Change fluids and get a good look at my gears (they got fancy ARB covers, maybe I'll get lucky..lol yeah right)
I'll keep adding to this thing as it gets worked on and more problems arise, should be pulling that sweet a as ax5 Saturday -_-
Apparently the only picture I have at the moment, I'll get more soon lol
