Been building on a YJ here and there for a year or so. '95 4.0. 4" lift + 1" shackles minus some sheet metal. 8.8 rear axle with a detroit locker. D30 high pinion in the front with a spartan locker. Geared to 4.56 with 35" Duratracks. Used to do RC offroad racing but I got sick of waiting for track time on race days. So I grabbed a 1500$ Craigslist YJ with 140K on the motor. Just started out small

Of course that got old fast with open diffs and 3.07 gears.

And I loved wheeling the local spots.

So I started building while learning as I went. Not a mechanic but I have Youtube and Google working for me.

So far so good. :)

but it's always good to have friends with tools and skills.

And people to wheel with. But no more Toyotas please. My winch is getting worn out.

I know the 3 jacks looks funny but it worked out well to calculate and set the pinion angle in a sloped driveway without doing a mock up. Just used an i-phone to figure it out before welding it together.


Thank you for warm reception. Hopefully see you on the trails soon. I'll be watching for the next outing. [cheers]
