Smashing baby! Its time for a Safari!



I recently picked up a 97 tj sahara. It was on the side of the road parked in total grandpa mode. Stock suspension.... The PO had just replaced the head and exhaust manifold and it had around 145xxx miles. When I bought it it had 30x9.5 15 ATRs. I just traded them for some 15x10 american racing wheels. I picked up some two inch coil spacers and when I installed them I used the springs from a buddys cherokee (they were an inch or so taller) and the rear springs from a 98 sport wrangler (they were a half inch taller). I also snagged some skyjacker 7000 hydros to add to the mix. Some bumper trimming, a couple electric fans, 32x11.50 dunlop mud rovers and here we are

Ive got a set of 4.10 axles lined up to replace the 3.07s. A locker of sorts in the rear.
I think id like to do an inch or so body lift so I can lift the trans mount a bit?!
I also ordered a Firestik antenna, stud and coax... Just looking for the right cb.

I have been thinking about how I want to make my own stab link disconnects and also thinking of doing all my fluid maintenance soon. Im a full time auto tech so everything should be in tip top shape soon enough.
