Re: yj on 39.5s

Looks good, did you stretch the wheelbase or anything?
My YJ-7 sits on 39.5" Boggers too. I stretched the rear out about 6". When i get the D60 under the front i will stretch the front about 5".

Here is a pic of it now.

Re: yj on 39.5s

wades_76_cj7, Did you just do away with the rear outboard body mounts when you cut it down or move them in? How about the fuel filler? Any chance of seeing a rear view pic?

I'm thinking of doing a similer trimming on my CJ7 for tire clearance and to get rid of some rust.

Re: yj on 39.5s

well theres a couple of ways.

im looking at running 44044s which add a couple inchs..

then im also looking at extending the front frame 3-5 inchs so i cna mount my winch between the frame rails also moving the springs forward.. will have to move the steering box up aslo . seems like a lot of work but if u look at it .. theres semms 2 be only 2 bolts and a lil fab work required.. ( im not sure if im going this route yet or not..

aslo u can just add to the frame on the rear and stretch the wb that way. by moving the rear springs back..
moving the rear axle is the easiest.. since theres not sttering issues to deal with..

i may just run a set of 44044s and a srs up front .. that would give me bout 3 inchs up front i belive. and push the rear axle back....

its a work in progress. never ever ending . and a special thanks goes to the one man ive bugged more then any one .....

thanks jeff (h8monday)

Re: yj on 39.5s

Looking nice Payton!! Kinda small though, don't you think?

Wades - You running waggy springs in the rear? What all was involved in streching it? What did you do with the gastank?

Re: yj on 39.5s

So many of these modifications just seem so familiar,...I just cant quite put a finger on where it is, that Ive seen them before. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Payton,
The rig looks good.
It does look a little tall though.
Just think of gravity as an 800lb gorrilla tugging on your roll cage.

Re: yj on 39.5s

The steering box relocation really isnt a very tough project.
I should have plenty of pics in the Search files here.
