So, Noah's 14, and I promised him a jeep if he'd keep his marks up. Well, Dave H found this lovely '93 YJ, good shape, a runner, recently insured and registered, so I grabbed it off of him. Dave stopped by last night, jeep in tow. Noah's eyes were priceless!! I've already found an 8.8 converted to YJ specs, and have to run to the coast next weekend to grab it, and that's the first part of the build. We're gonna be building this over the next few years, so we will be picking brains here. He's looking forward to some stock runs, where he'll get to drive his jeep this summer!! We will keep this updated, and be poking you guys with questions!! Cheers!!

I must say I'm digging the name on the hood :-)

Awesome to see. I always hoped my girls would get into the Jeep thing but they found something else....boys lol.

Will be keeping an eye on this thread. Will be cool to see what you guys do to it. Have fun!

That's a great start. Both my boys got jeeps for they're first vehicle which means I am constantly working to make something better. If your looking I have a trussed, high pinion, non axle disconnect Dana 30 I don't need. From an xj so would need spring perches. Stock gears.


85 cj7 with SOA and 3" rancho springs, 35" LTB's, 360, twinstick dana 300 front locked rear welded, winch, on board air, 5" wb stretch and custom bumpers.

I am definitely interested Kevin!! Thank you! I'll come have a look. Gotta run to the coast this weekend for an 8.8 for it. Set up for a YJ, spring over, with 4.10's.
