Default Project "I needed something to showcase myself in" so I bought this...

Project Walmart Panties is taking too long to build, so I bought a Jeep that ran but only needed a clutch. So I thought....

Specs so far...

1995 LT1 with a Howell industries computer and harness.

NV4500 AA bell housing and tail housing.

231J with SYE

Dana 30 front <----- lol

Dyna Trac Dana 60 rear high pinion 4.10 gears and locked.

36" TSLs







I picked up a king pin hp Dana 60 front for it after blowing up the Dana 30 front at snowfari.



Hopefully this coming Tuesday I'll be dropping off the 60 at Mckenzie fabrication to have ~5" cut off the passenger side.

Lol yes those are terrible. After I get the front 60 in it is going to the exhaust shop. I spent the last month un-hillbilly-ing stuff all over this thing.

That made me lol. Maybe getting it running and driving the day we left for Snofari wasn't the best idea. The only test drive it got before loading it on to the trailer was to the gas station.
It wasn't very happy with me by the end of Saturday after getting the shit kicked out of it all day

So you had a good time until the 30 went?

Must have been nice to be in the drivers seat again.

June still has not moved.

Thanks guys :) it isn't much but it's fun to drive and feels good to back behind the wheel again since I gave the other jeep I was wheeling to my dad.

It lasted almost all day. It broke on the tandem hill challenge which was at the end of the trail ride.

Are you talking about your truck? Did you get a tail housing? When I'm not working 60+ hours a week I can give you hand with that.

I also started building some DIY tube fenders for it. I'm going to try and test fit them this weekend if I get my garage project/ clean up done.

Just a small update. I dropped it off to get some cage work done and have the axle shortened.

Started swapping in the front Dana 60. Thanks to Hosejockey and alumcj for helping me narrow it. We took off around 5" from the long side so it will fit under a YJ with out moving the driver side perch. It ends up being around 64" wms to wms. I need to get a bunch of stuff done by Windrock, but I don't think I'm going to make it. . I need to recruit some help.


The chunks in the middle of the pic are what we took out of it





Here is a pic of the 38 SXs mounted on bead locks with a Chevy cap. I might have a Jeep logo made for the center.
