Default Red Yj gone mad

Started with this heep o jeep 4 years ago. Learned the hobby and the trails over that time. Got more serious, bought a truck and trailer. Then, this past year the build, break, fix, repeat bug got me good. Finally, one night the d35 decided to grenade itself on me... The wifey said, " I don't care how much it costs and how long it takes, fix it so that never happens again." I figured a 1 ton swap was the most viable option

Pics are from day 1 until now over the last 4 years. Here's where I'm at now plan wise: keep the 4.0 till it blows, 14 bolt rear, custom 60/14 front, stupid gears, big t/case, links, air struts, 40s and a bunch of cut off wheels later will get me to the combo I've always wanted. Yes, it is Monstalined.. Yes I rolled it on.. Yes I recommend it.. Enjoy.

It was decent. It is starting on the underside of the tub but the rest is sealed up with the Monstaliner. I had POR'd the frame when I first got it too. Too bad I'll be hacking a lot of it up haha

Been busy with life. as always, jeep project takes a back seat. I have managed to gather some things together. a friend of mine has some 17s I'll be picking up. settled on some 39s scraping up the cash for those currently. DOM is in for the 14 bolt front. 3.5" OD .5 wall. all the knuckles and arms have been blasted. 14 bolt center is ready to rock as well. After wheels and tires I'll be ordering the yukon free spin kit too. That way if it ever is on the road I can unlock the hubs and not worry about the 14 bolt front oiling issues as well as any locker malfunctions on the street. Once I have all that I can finally measure where I will need to cut the DOM for the WMS I want. Let the saga continue. I'll post pics when I have time later.
