My YJ Build

So i took a trip last fall break and on the way home we stopped in Moab. I convinced my mom to rent a Wrangler for a day. Took it on some easier trails and i was addicted! I came home started looking for Wrangler's on craiglslist that was in my teenagers budget. Talked a guy down to a real good price and bought it! Just decided to start a thread on its past and future mods...

This is how i bought her... Semi-tastefull modding by the PO. But the brand new 4.0 engine alone made it a good buy...



First wheelin' trip..







When driving home from the trail, one of the tires blew out on the highway. So new tires...And some other little things such as tire carrier, shackles the the PO gave me...





Took off the chrome tube bumpers finally!!





Then came my first "big" mod. A new rear axle. Knew a guy with a Super35 laying in his back yard and he gave me an amazing deal i couldn't pass up...
First trip with the locker..





Then i noticed a gash in one of my tires. And since they dont make them anymore i decided to get what i can for them now and upgrade!

35x12.5x15 BFG KM2s...






Took the new tires for a spin





Upcoming Mods: Got some rear TJ flares I am about to put on and I am going to build some tubes fenders up front...

a locked 30 with later shafts or alloy shafts will take a lot of abuse. I'm running a locked 3o and alloys in mine 0 issues
