    Default Stretched One Ton TJ on 42's Project

    So I had my YJ project almost finished when I changed directions. It just wasn't what I wanted in a toy. So I decided to take the atlas and axles out of it, and start with something more to what I wanted. So attached is a picture of how the YJ sits as of tonight.

    The plan is for a good amount of stretch front and rear, full hydro steering, stock motor and tranny, atlas 5.0, the axles rims and tires I already had. I'm going to get a genright alien tank so I can keep the tank under the body and keep my rear seat. Its going to be comp cut in the rear and tube fendered in the front. We are going with an XJ leaf in the rear, to keep it simple/cheap. and because it works like crazy. Then we are going to do a 3 or 4 link in the front, basically get the new axle in there and see how many links we can fit in there without trouble. we are going to save some more cash by cutting off the TJ coil/shock mount in the front and moving it forward... if we can. if not.. coilovers it is!

    I'm sure there are some things I've missed but you'll see it when I get there!
