Re: pics of the projects
It's been about 2 1/2 years since I first took it apart! What started out as patching a few panels, etc, turned into a YJ tub swap, complete drivetrain rebuild, lift, gears, etc. The YJ already has a Skyjacker lift, we'll keep that and concentrate on the drivetrain and body for the time being. My daughters on a little bit of a budget and we want this one on the road by Spring. Some things we will be doing are.
4.2 with a 4.0 head and injection
31" Radial Swampers
and the most important part! (next to the cage of course)It'll be painted "Pink"!
Dex..the trailers.. The top one is a 16' Trailex. This trailer has a sweet ramp system, brakes on both axles, and is all aluminum. It's light, one person can move it around by themselves, tows awesome. It also has a tire rack which was removed for the Jeep due to height. The only problem with it is... It doesn't belong to me, it's my friends, he uses for his '69 Firebird! It's also expensive, I think Mike gave around $5,800 for it new! The second trailer..also doesn't belong to me! This is a 16', no name trailer. It belongs to my boss! It's used primarily for hauling lawn mowers to his three locations, does have electric brakes on one axle and pulls a Jeep just fine. Rick
