Default Another YJ Build sbc and 1 tons

I wanted a Jeep so i bought my first Jeep. I picked up a 90 YJ.
It started as a 6 cyl 5 speed with 2" body lift and 33" tires.

Drove it for a month then my son and I started to pull it apart for a build.
As we pulled it apart we found the frame had more rust then we thought.
Bought a good frame had it sand blasted and painted.
Started mocking up axles and drive train.
Built SBC 350
dana 60 front hp
14 bolt rear
Since these pics were taken a super short SYE kit was installed.

Went to lift the body off the original body and found the body was rotted worse around the rear roll bar then we had thought, plus all the normal YJ rust.

Heres where having a son that works at towing company with an awesome boss comes in handy.

Flying YJ

So off we went to pick up a newer better condition tub.
