Jeep Lj build

Ok guys after two Jk's , I am going to build a LJ this time
I only gave 10k for it, It has 4.88s ,a 3.25 rought country lift with 32's

Plans for this build are
stage 1
3.5 rk standard lift
35s gy mtr/k
psc bfh front bumper ...might make my own depends on time
shocks bilsteins, fox, rk emulsion ... haven't decided yet
that should get me going for a few weeks



In the mean time I am trying to figure out what front axle I am going to build
I have a JK d44 housing , waggy d44 complete, hp d60 complete and a hp d30 all in my shed

35s are the biggest tire that I am going to run on this jeep,that kinda rules out the d60 and i really wanna stick with the rear d44 that it has now


I am going to build a 3 link front and a single triangulated rear 4 link long arm suspension
I have been talking to Jason at krawloffroad.com and will soon get some parts on the way

I have been working for the last 3 weeks straight ... But I have alot of parts ready for the Jeep RK 3.5 lift is here and because Im going to be very short on time Im going to just buy a RK long arm upgrade to get me going

I also have been gathering parts for the front axle build. Im going to use a 79 F250 HD D44 Im going to cut the long side down to waggy length and use 5x5.5 outers So far I have about 550 in all the axle parts

spartan locker 250
I gave a 100 for the f250 axle
I bought a 4.88 gear 200

This is going to be a fun build and the goal for it is a dd and week end wheeler

Work hooked me up with a new snowboard this year!!

I took a few days off and finally got to do a little fishing


I also picked up JK d30 complete!! I gave 150 bucks for it Marcus at RCO talked me in to this.... and I think for the money I will have in it was a hell of a idea

I got my bumper and winch on
I also got a warn knock off rear bumper

Rubi wheels are back from paint I got talked out of powder coat for this project

I picked up 3 new nitto mud grapplers 35 12.50 17 from RCO These were not my first choice but I allready had two new ones from a past Jee
