The Stupidist Jeep on the Planet

So its time for me to make a buld thread for my 95 XJ time had come to finally get this build goin, first ill start with a lil history on it

Got it back in high school (circa 2003) from my parents wheeled the crap out of it stock, blew up the d35 got a D44 then installed a 2" BB, got some 30's and wheeled that for a year


Broke the driveplate also rust started hapening so it got taken off the road Feb of 2006, then sold the D44, then it sat in the driveway for a year, i bought parts for a 4.5" lift with plans to run 33's, later in the year i got a sweet deal on some used Clayton LA's and 35" Claws so i bumped up the lift to 6",


Nov of 07 moved to a new place with a small garage, finally pulled the trans to get the broken flexplate out, trans is still out to this day

nothin much changed in the next year it basicly sat due to tight funds, then come Nov 08 i bought a 93 XJ for $500 as a winter beater it quickly got a bb and 33" wheel it like that then stated buyin more goodid like more lift and lockers, the plans were to transfer the parts into the 95 when the 93 was done,

the 93 locked f/r and armored, its actually became a test rig for the 95


well i had a few friends blow up there 30's on 35's so i decided to sell the 35's and go 1 tons
bought a 60/10.25 combo


shortly after i got a set of 38" SX's on Stazworks Double beadlocks with 2" backspacing, its gonna be super wide (like 89")


pics of em mocked up



sold the 10.25 and bought a D70 with 4.88's i belive its out of a late 60's gm bread truck, its getting welded and disc brakes



the 93 was parted out last month im takin the trans from it for the 95

that basicly brings up to date on it

on thurs i orderd a 4.3 Atlas with 1300 flanges, shall be shipped in 5 weeks

i also got brown dog poly motor mounts and block brackets for it

complete plans for it

5" of lift
3 link frt using 2.5" johnny joints
frt 60 fullwith, with 4.88's, lock rite, ruffstuff cover, 35 spline outers and drive flanges
replace rusty floors
plating of frame rails
fullcage
cut 2" out of bottom of doorss adding box tube and boat sides
keep as full bodied as possible

Are you planning on using the stock location steering arm for the tie rod?
If so, I'd get at least the tie rod mocked up so you can measure the exact travel ram you need. PSC will limit the stroke to exactly the specs you give them so you don't have to mess with it.
If you are going the entire high steer route, get the arms on and do the above first before ordering the ram/pump.
