Re: Got carried away trimming the xj

Did YJs have the frame rust problem the TJs have had? I wouldn't mind a Wrangler someday (and have had three TJs that were brand new) but I hate to buy a used TJ due to the frame rust issues.

It's a 95 so it has 4.0 ax15. The body is pretty rusty. Actually really rusty. But the frame is in really good shape. Most of it still has the original paint on it. I'm pretty excited about it.

Glad to hear it has the 4.0. Should be fun to watch you abuse this one.

Yea me too. I kinda want to just leave it be and wheel it as is. But James is building a tj on 40s so I figure I need to at least run 33s if I want to stay remotely near him.

So the plan is SOA, swap the 35 for the 8.8 I got from Ken years ago. 4.56s lunch boxes, sye, and 33s.

I'm hoping to get all that done before nacfest. But James the build has turned into a frame off restoration. So it's taking alot of our time.

Re: Got carried away trimming the xj

Took the sway bar and both track bars out. Made a world of difference in how well the suspension works. And made almost no difference in it's road manners. A tiny bit more body roll in the corners, but not much.

Stock this is as far as I could get before I picked up a tire. And I had to bump it to even get up



With everything taken out it went right up. I was able to go much farther.


The tire will completely stuff now.



One day I'll have a garage but for now under my deck will have to do.
