    Default The "I don't have a clever name for my TJ" build

    I don't have a clever name for this build yet. 97 TJ, 4 cyl, 5 spd. $1200. No lift, 31" Firestone Destination MTs.



    I built a bumper/spare tire carrier for it. I used a spare D30 unit bearing for the mounting point.

    Then a Ford 8.8 that came out of this:



    I used the MORE TJ bracket kit:







    Welded tubes to housing (about 1.5 inch beads, I think 3 on each tube).



    No other pics before install, as I was trying to get it all together for wheeling the weekend it was going in.

    Since my daughter rides in the back quite a bit, I wanted a little more for her. My BIL and I bent this little guy up, and I slapped it in).

    Then I built some armor:





    I kept the front a little short, as I was planning on front tube fenders, but those are still "in progress."

    How she sat after a 2" BB and 33x10.50 KM2s.

    2" BB and XJ Upcountry springs (~1" lift over factory TJ/XJ springs) in the front, and 3" OME springs in the rear, on 35" MT/Rs with kevlar:



    D30 upgrades: SOLID cover, Tera Hi steer, OME steering stabilizer, "custom" LCA mount skids, cut and sleeved track bar (I have to build one eventually), and Eaton E Locker (more to follow).

    Seats: Stock to factory 5.9 GC seats:





    5.9 seats to some Mastercraft and PRP seats:



    Driver side seat in, the others are waiting for the new cage to be done (appt in May).
    **I have to look for the pic of this**

    And the newest addition to the TJ, tail lights and corners/flares:





    **Yes, there are no back up lights at the time. They are on their way from Genright.**

    The rockers will go back on after I mod them. They have to have a small piece of steel welded on to fill the gap between the rocker and the corner guard.

    I will be taking off the bumper/carrier and building a new one that will swing out off of the pass side corner guard, SIMILAR to this:




    This is an abbreviated build thread, as I only have some pics due to changing computers. I will add as it continues along.

    What do you all think?

    So here is the rundown so far:

    2.5L/AX5/231, 35" MT/R with kevlar

    Front axle: '88 XJ HP D30, 4.88 Yukon gears, Eaton Elocker, factory shafts, Tera Hi Steer, SOLID diff cover, OME steering stabilizer, custom LCA skids

    Rear axle: '97 Ford Explorer 8.8, 4.88 Yukon gears, ARB, Yukon alloy shafts, disc brakes, SOLID diff cover.

    I have a 231 w/PORC SYE and Tera 2lo kit to install (I scored the tcase and two XJ front CV driveshafts for $200). I have to get the driveshafts cut down first, and I am waiting for new bushings for my adjustable UCAs.

    I still have to wire the ARB, Elocker, compressor, and switch panel. Plenty of pics of the panel install when it's done.

    The corners I actually got from a guy on another board. They are Poison Spyder TJ corners, with home fab flares.
