Hello every one, My name is Kevin Judalet and I live in Beaumont, Texas. I have a beautiful wife and a beautiful little girl that we recently adopted from China. I work as a project manager for a Large Highway contractor.
I have been into custom vehicles for a long time. Mainly on the vertically challenged (lowered) vehicles. I used to be involved in the Car Electronics industry and have built a few show winning vehicles.
Last year my favorite father-in-law (Dirty OLE Man) and step-father both bought Jeeps and I was surrounded by them and couldn't avoid it any longer. I had to get a Jeep. So I pounded the pavement and found a clean 99 TJ. With help from my father-in-law we did some modifications to it and headed to Tree's Ranch. This was the first time I had ever been four wheelingand I was bitten by the four wheeling bug! After breaking an axle on the stock turdy-five, I came home and started the modifications. I installed a super 35 kit in the rear and a detroit true-trac and superior chromoly axles up front. Added a winch and some other goodies and off we went again. After several trips and no damage everything was going good. I even made it up DeWoody at BMRA with the stock 4 banger and 35" tires. Now its winter time and I have started the reconstructive surgery on the TJ. Here's a list.
2001 Vortec V-6
NP231 with SYE and Beefed up input shaft
GM 14 Bolt
Ford 3/4 ton Dana 44
Rock Krawler rear four link conversion
10" Frame Stretch
Warn 9000 LB winch
Cobra 25 CB
and a bunch of other goodies.
Here's a before pic.
I will post an after pic sometime after the first of the year.
