Default So far budget yj

Picked up a 95 4.0 ax15 Yj kind of weird but it has abs. Anywase paid 1k for it has some frame issues. It had 2.5 springs and 3.07s. I had no real plans but to lift it and beat it a bit.

I ended up doing a soa with a 4.10 30 I had sitting around and I put my 8.8 from Louie in it. 1" tcase drop and built a rear shaft for it. Ended up needing a ladder bar bad so I had 2 stock rear lower jk arms I used and I bought a teraflex high steer knuckle for it. The bump steer was so bad a dip in the road would send you clear on the shoulder. The top I got with the jeep was missing a ton of hardware so I ended up throwing a frameless tj top on it so I wasn't getting soaked.

I ended up picking up a used super top and stole Kinzies tires off her xj. I got tcxtremes 36s and bartered a set of wheels. Still need to get them mounted and on the jeep. I had someone give me the winch free, it needed a controller but the cable looked great still. I mounted the high lifter that came with the jeep. Before jeep creep its getting a front locker and I'm not sure if there's anything else yet

Well ended up not running the Rubi case for now I was in a pinch for time so I put a tj case in it until I get yokes for the Rubi case. Put the locker in and must have damaged the spring on the way in because it just flat out would not unlock. Pulled it back out and ordered a spring/ pin kit.

Well I am also at a little dilema I did the 1 piece shaft swap and replaced the axle seals. The thing is pouring gear oil out and the pinion bearings are smoked. I have 9" I can drop in it. And I need to make time to get to @Toyfish for the 44 front. But I just bought the hi steer arm locker and its a good setup how it is...
