Ford's 94 yj build

Well i figured id start now because im going to be making a lot of changes to the jeep in the near future. First things firsts i have a 1994 4.0 5 speed. It has a 4 inch rough country suspension and i think 2 inch shackles. Stuffed under that is 35 bfg all terrains.. I already put new transfer case in it from a 98, so i already got rid of that stupid slip yoke.

The plans are to get rid of the ugly looking tube bumpers on it. Ill prob fab some new ones up. Lift it a little more so the tires wont rub.. maybe soa. winch, cb, highlift jack, posi-lock. Ford 8.8, step sides(prob rock guards or something of the sort). flush mount tailights, hardtop, and idk ill think of more prob..

sounds like a good plan! Someone out here will probably pick up the bumpers if your selling... or pop 'em out on craigslist...

cool, i love build threads. that uniden is a good cb for what it is, i like using it.

bad news though, that t case is still a slip yoke t case. you will need a sye and d shaft.

If you could
1. How its routed under the battery tray, I just installed new fenders and theres not a lot of room on either side (ignore this one, just noticed the pic above)
2. How is it supported? If it is by the body/engine/ or just its own weight
3. Hows it attached to the windshield

And then whats the while access tube for under the hood?

Thanks

If you're looking to sell those bumpers let me know!! I'm looking into finding some temporary replacements for mine till I can get someone to make me a flat one with a stinger (like you want)

so im still in pain from getting theses tonsils removed but i decided to take my fender off today so i can start doing my manifold! im just soaking the bolts with PB blaster(stuff works miracles) so it easier taking things apart. also found out today i need a passenger side seatbelt! UGH that goes with the hardtop and soundbar i want also.

Today i finally felt better again after being in the hospital for a while.. So i called up my buddy Frankie and we started workin on the jeep. I forgot to tell you guys about my led tail lights so i took a picture of them . Anyways we cut the rear fender wells, so i would not rub anymore. We started to use a wiz wheel but then said ah screw it! and went right to the plazma cutter! As we were doing this our friend dan called us and asked if we could help him repair his CJ7 frame. It had a crack in it so we started working on that after we were done mine. All in all was a great night!

Led taillights

New Hella lights installed

Fenders are cut!




PLAZMA and MILLER MIG


Helping my buddy weld his Side steps on too!
