Point taken! Inspired. Gonna build up confidence with some smaller projects on the jeep and move on up. Thanks again for the thread.
Finally finished reading the whole thread, well done... magnificent rig brother. How is the interior coming along? Been some time since your last update...
I have made my decision, my first Jeep will be a YJ, not even looking at any others now (except maybe harleydragon's bad boy CJ lol, wish i could afford it). How come you don't drive it in the winter? Are you trying to preserve it from the elements or are YJs not known for good heating in the cab?Interior will be a winter project when I put it away for the winter. I say I DD my rig but in the dead of winter I just drive my truck. Plus I am in the process of buying my business partner out so that final figure will determine if I get to do what I want as far as the interior goes or wait a little longer. As you can see the YJ can be taken in many different directions depending on what the owner wants to do. And is a very, very capable off road vehicle whether its stock, slightly modified or built all out.
How long is your rear driveshaft? I am curious as I am putting an 8.8 in mine with soa. I found a used tom woods on craigslist for $100. It has about a 16.5 to 17 running length.
