My buddy just put 1 ton axles under his LJ and loves it.
Its a Rubicon, so with that 4.1 transfer case he runs 42" tires.

Got some new wheels so figured I’d update my photo, went from 17x8.5 wides with -10 offset to American Racing Baja’s that are 17x9 wide with -12 offset. Next up is some Mickey Thompson bajas to wrap the wheels with.

Default Jeep owners post em up!

I got my 82 Scrambler back in 1991 and finished the rebuild in 92. That build included engine rebuild with Webber, HEI, Painless Wiring, RV Cam, trans/tnfr rebuild, new gears/Limited slip, SOA conversion, one piece axles and an older Acme hardtop.


She is currently in the beginning stages of a rebuild again, a brand new full hard top is here, tire/jack carrier is built and front bumper is under construction.

Next body comes off, under body gets blasted and bed lined, frame gets cleaned and coated, rearend trussed with traction bar and an LS/4L60 gets swapped in.

The last build kept the outside basic hunting buggy, this one will bring back a little bling with bigger version of something similar to this being the goal.


Once we get to a picture worthy stage I will start a DYI thread.

I saw a jeep with a nice lift on it, run a yield sign right in front/beside me this morning at 5:20AM. And slap a car that had right-of-way. He kinda bounced off. I thought for a second he was gonna go on down the road. But he pulled over. The collision happened 30 feet in front of me. I was rolling at 5mph, yielding to the other vehicle (as the signage said to). Seen 3 accidents today total. I hate driving up here. Yall be careful out there.

Here's Pearl. After 16 years of service I think I'm going to retire her after this season. Every year she becomes more rare, unique and valuable.

I just found this thread. Also just became a jeep owner. I picked up a cool little yj that i have found to be tons of fun around the house and in and out of my hunting spots. W have had a handful of side by sides, but none were street legal, fully enclosed, or had a heater.
