Well while I was on vacation and posting this build on other forums I figure I should post it here as well......


Im getting ready to build another clone copy of this Jeep for my daughter.

Been wanting to build up this old YJ for a while.


End result will be linked with dana 60/ 14bolt and 40 inch rubber.

This is the way she started out. Shitty rough country lift and 33s.



Took all the junk out




Wanted to keep the 4wd light working so I went to the junkyeard and got a sensor from a durango and removed the vacuum BS from the stock Transfer case wired it up and viola.



Tons of UPS love.

Continued.....










Took the old king pins out. Cut off wheel and a grinder works like a charm every time.




Machined the Artec arms and Reid knuckles fopr the 3/4 tie in bolt.

Got the towers welded up now waiting on the ORIs to arrive.




I also went and picked up the 40s and 17 inch beadlocks.



Got the hubs all cleaned and new bearings, races, brakes and studs installed. Still need to pack the bearings for the front but I'll wait until final assembly. I also added dorman 194 studs to the hubs.




Got the Front axle almost ready to go back under the rig.






Chromo shafts came in but still waiting for ORIs
