Here is my Jeep, there are many like it but this one it mine. I have had it for almost one year.

I have built a flat skidplate for it out of 1/4" steel with 1x2 welded to it to space it down for trans and transfer case clearance.



Here are the details and some pics.

4.0 100,000 miles

AW4 Novak manual shifter

NP231 with new chain and shift fork

78 Ford Dana 60 front and rear with 5.38 gears

Spool in rear

Spartan in front

Disc brakes on all 4

Dom and heim Hi-steer with new steering box and hydro assist

SOA front

Stretched 4-link rear with Fox Air shocks

39.5 Pitbull Rockstars on Beadlocks

RCI fuel cell behind rear seat.

Gen Right rear corner guards

Poison Spyder front bumper w/ stinger

Engo 9000S winch

5-point harnesses

Tom woods driveshafts

Dodge master cylinder

Flat Skid

Autometer trans temp gauge

Extra AW4, springs, stuff.








New pics coming

Then I decided to make a little more clearance and get rid of the only rust on it. The sides of the tub were cut off and 1/4" steel welded in place to create boatsides.

Today I finally decided to replace the rear axle shaft I broke about a month ago at the Mounds. Got the broken pieces out and once I find where I stashed the extra axles I have I will replace it haha. I think I know where they are, tomorrow I will go see if they are there.

Hey knucklehead, edit your first post so it's not a for sale thread.

I edited out what I caught with a quick once over and just edited a little more.

Copy and paste was just too easy not to do.

I was wondering that too.

It could have been avoided, I had it wedged pretty good and the right front spring was against a rock, gave it a little more power and SNAP!

Now I just have to find the spares you gave me with it, went and looked at my storage yard in my other truck and they were not in it like I thought.

I have 2 weeks to find one and get it back together.
