It sounds pretty nasty. Has a wicked tone, and sounds great with the cold air intake. Although it is loud.

Itchy I hate to say it but that rear truss may not work. I had almost the exact same setup and my first run with it I bent the shit outta it

Is it bolted to the cover at all? Basically when you get on it the single tube isn't enough to stop the axle from wanting to "wrap" or twist.

Build looks bad ass just wanna give you a heads up on your truss.

Yeah I had my reservation about it as well. Thats why I have the two pieces of 2x4 square tubing bracing it at the ends. There is about 6-8 inchs of material tied together on the axle tube, and upper truss, and it is welded to the center section as well. Plus about two tubes of liquid nails just in case.

It will never hold up. Rip those twigs out from under that beauty and order up some nice 'Tons.

There, was that the sharp stick in the eye that you needed? You have all winter to finish it off right..........

LOL....That shit aint gonna work with me. Im DONE......I dont care if that rear axle shoots out from under this thing, and I drive off a cliff. Besides I have my eye on a YJ tub for the next one. Maybe I'll build some tons for that one. This one is just for getting coffee and what not.

It could be on a narrow track 30/20 combo, and it would still look good. Now sell it before the suspension fails and you kill nuns holding kittens.

Took the my clunker for a little ride today. WOW was it brisk out there today. Everything seems ok, which is pretty wierd. I was expecting for something to fall off, or not to work. All joking aside, found a few things that need adressing. need to make some rear bump stops, rear tire is touching qtrs when its flexed out. Brakes work great. Glad I did the WJ conversion. Jumped on the brakes about 45-50mph and this bitch stopped quick. Here are a few hardcore poser shots.

















The stock rear springs seem a little soft
