Say, I think I seen this Jeep on CL, price lowered to $1200, or so. Either way I think it is well worth $2000 alone with the sb setup. Good luck with your build.

Thanks. I hope I can get it going. It'll make a nice rig.

that trans cross member is a little sketchy. i doubt those booger welds will get you very far. ditch (or fix) that, along w the others listed above. other than that looks like it will be a lot of fun when it is done. best of luck

Trying to figure out if I really need to put those big ass axles under it, it has 3/4 ton axles on it right now from what I was told.

inside the cab under the dash would be nice to keep it dry and safe if ya can.

it could be mounted on the fire wall, might wanna shield it from mud and debris if you mount it outside on the firewall.

Thanks, I'm going to try and mount it under the dash like you said. I want to get it as high as I can for when I go through water.

Too bad you got orange paint all over those Mickey Thompson valve covers. They'd be a lot nicer than those piss poor Proform ones. Looks like you have a good base to start with. I hope to see it out at the park soon.

I can't keep it longer then a month I have to keep up my records at the park.
1.) Most rigs in a season
and
2.) Bringing a different rig to the park 3 weekends in a row.

Actually I'm going to dump a shit load of money into this one and keep it for a while. It's exactly what I have been looking for, A yj that has a engine bigger then a 2.5 and is a automatic. I hope to have it up on 35's, tom woods drive shafts, clock the t-case so it isn't hanging down and finish the cross member before febuary 13th and 14th.
And by may I want it to have long arms, rock sliders and link the rear end...I really don't like leaf springs.
I haven't really got to wheel a YJ yet so If after all that I don't like it I'll trade it for another XJ.
