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, doubler, cheap suspension, big tires, 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.

Moving forward slowly but surely. Got the garage insulated finally and some nice new LEDs hung up. I have had a few spare nights here and there between our kitchen remodel. Ended up with some 38.5x13.5x16 boggers. Comp'd the corners. Acquired everything for the rear to go in and got it rolling around by itself. I used dually studs (dorman 601-194s) and 75 chevy 3/4 rotors and calipers for the disc conversion Mix of motobilt and barnes stuff for all other necessities. Leaf springs I'm using are out of an s10/blazer/jimmy. Picking up a doubler this weekend. I'd like to get that in sooner than later because it will let me get the front pinion centered.Then, I will finally be able to measure for the front axle tubes now that I have a solution for the 14 bolt front outers and have that width figured. Don't worry I will update that in a later post. Long story short, it is a bastard of an axle. chevy pig, dodge c's knuckles, and ford outers. Pics are as it sits now about at the wheelbase the springs will locate it at. 81-82 wide and I will be almost that in height. Hoping for less. I may stretch the rear a couple more inches.. Undecided. I'm 102 hub to hub.

70s in February! Was able to get the rear crossmember burned in last weekend. Hoping to have the axle bolted in this weekend.
