Well guys... it's time for my lil heep to move up a notch... during the next 3-4 weeks there will be some major changes to my TJ.

What I intend to have when done will be a YJ with TJ Suspension,4" lift springs, 4:88 gears, with quick locks on both axles, and 36" TSL's on 15x8 beadlocks from DIY4X. for now the axles will be D30 front and D35 rear, unless I find a smoking deal on a rear D60... but for now, the D35 will have to do, due to budget restraints.

So with the help of my good friend RVreddog and the Midnight Fourwheelers... I'm gonna get Locked and Loaded

here's a pic of the Jeep at BMRA on 33's, stock springs, 1.75 coil spacers, & 2" body lift.




stay tuned

At first I thought you messed up and met to say a TJ with a YJ suspension and where going to accomplish this by putting leaves in the back. Now I see you are placing a new tub on. That is really going to be different, cool!!

cool project

Rastus that is going to be so cool. By the time we all get to Katemcy it will be such a different story this go round. I have heard a rumor we are doing the waterfall backwards again. Keep us updated with some pics too. Best of luck on the upgrade.

Plans have changed again.... 8) now I'm going to build the YJ with a 350 engine, 700r4-241, D44 frt, D60 rear, 4:88's... got it unloaded and on jackstands tonight, took some pics, but they did not turn out :(

TJ is getting 4:88's, beadlocks, 36" TSL's, 4" springs, along with a rear lincoln locker, and quick-lock in the front. the TJ will be done before the YJ is done. Mouse will be driving the YJ mostly I spect.

the YJ was too good not to build and I'll save time putting building the YJ as is..... Unless the plans change again :rofl: it's all just nuts and bolts anyways 8)

Looks like a nice project. I may be picking up another project truck before too long here. Got some new products that need to be fitted and tested and my current rig is too weird to fit anything for development.
