Default My first 1 ton v8 YJ build (New Pics)

Well I have been working on this for the past 3 or so years and finally starting to get somewhere. the Jeep is a 88 Yj but that is about all the Jeep that is left to it. I was gonna gonna use 4in springs and axle under it but did lots of research and decided to link it and coil over it. Oh and drop it about a foot and still run the same size tires. It should have about 4-5 in compression and 13-14in droop. The drive train consists of a 94 LT1 TH350 203 205 doubler. 14 bolt in the back and HP 60 in the front. 5.13 gears and 42in Iroks. Should work well. Here are some pics. Have some more to post up soon.

Well it sits a lot lower than the last pic now. Suspension wise its only 2in higher than a stock YJ.

This the most recent pic. I will have some more on how the cage is set up soon.

well spring over gives you 4"-5" over stock.... and those spring definitely have some lift to them. so I'd guess 6"-8" over stock.


but regardless, cool build. welcome to GL4x4.


edit: dammit jeepaholic.

Well the Jeep is supporting its weight finally. Completely tore it down to the bare frame and finish welded everything. So close to being done its not even funny.
