Kinda new in S.A.

Kinda new but not really. Name is Robert and I've been wheeling for years now in my gold TJ. Know a few guys here, wheeled with some and figured it was time to step it up a bit. With that said I picked this up a couple months ago and giving it a few of my own touches.

Here are the specs......

All tubing is 1.75 .120 wall DOM.

Engine:
rebuilt 1994 Chevy 4.3 cpi with complete Howell efi harness. Cooling comes from factory gm s-10 radiator using a dual puller e-fan setup, temp never gets over 210 and usually hovers at 190ish.

Fuel system:
Stock 1988 Toyota tank with new in tank 4.3 gm fuel pump and jegs reusable aluminum filter. Mounted high in the rear portion of chassis above suspension.

Transmission:
1994 4l60e with swapped output shaft from Advanced Adapters to mate to gear driven Toyota cases using their adapter coupling.

Transfercase:
New three years ago from trail-gear, built dual setup with 23 spline throughout. The front case is 2.28 and the rear has the 4.7 ratio. The rear case is twinsticked. Recently upgraded to the marlin crawler front and rear chromolly 30 spline outputs and larger flanges...very beef. Custom skid plate that spans from the front under the engine oil pan to behind the rear crawl box of the transfer case. Protects everything.

Front axle:
1987 CUCV GM dana 60 front with the factory larger inner c's. 4.56 gears and a spooled carrier. yukon 35 spline chromolly outers with spicer life joints and factory 35 spline inners. 4wd factory drive flanges that can be removed and the cover replaced without the drive puck inside in case you break a shaft. High steer arms from PSC with new kingpin bushings. Custom gusseted C's. Full hydro with all components matched bought from PSC. Ballistic cover. Front driveshaft uses 1.75" .250 wall DOM with slip at axle side using 1310 yoke and Toyota flange on frame side.

Rear axle:
1987 CUCV GM 14bolt with disc brake conversion and Detroit. 4.56 gears. Truss for links with the upper portion tied into the rear diff cover. Ballistic cover. Uses rear .250 square tubing for drive line with Toyota flange on frame side, and 1350 joint at the axle side. GLO custom yoke girdles are used instead of straps.

Front suspension:
Fox 2.5 18" airshocks used in a 3 link setup. 5" true up-travel with 13" down travel. All links are 2" .250 wall DOM using Ballistic rebuild-able joints in the 2.63 flavor. The panhard uses 3/4 hiems and bent for clearance 1.75" .250 DOM. Upper third link is on the drivers side and has adjustable height on the frame side.

Rear suspension:
Dual triangulated 4 link using 2" .250 wall DOM and trail-gear link ends. Trail gear ends. Rubicon express lift springs for the front of a zj are used in conjunction with ballistic adjustable coil buckets in the rear. Bilstien 14" travel 5100's are used in the rear.

Tires:
42" cut TSL's.

Wheels:
16.5x12" Stazwork custom double beadlocks with pilot holes for rockwell 6 lug pattern predrilled. Rock rings on the front lip.

Interior:
front seats are new Corbeau Baja Ultra's (bigger than the baja ss) with 5 point 3" belts. Stock steering wheel with aluminum dash and console. Art carr shifter and older nakamichi cd player with aux output for ipod. 5" tach and 2 1/16" water/fuel pressure/voltmeter/oil pressure Autometer gauges. 12VoltGuy push button start with ignition and 7 other switches for lights, e-fan, stereo, etc. Check engine light installed in dash.
