  • New Rig: "BlakWulf" [YJ]

    so my first post was deleted, here we go 94 yj stretched to 103" using xj/yj leaf springs and relocating the front hanger,comp cut, full cage with seats tied in, gas tank relocated into bed and then skinned out , flat skid made out of 3/16 steel, ford shock towers at all 4 corners, reccaro style seats, 4 point harness, flipped 300 w/ twin stick, quick release steering wheel, 35" baja claws for now on soft 8's, alloy shafts front and soon to be in the rear, 8000lbs. winch,agr super pump and power steering cooler.

    i started w/ regular wheel base on 3.5 bds springs w/ some big a$$ shackles kept the springs ditched the shackles , waggy 44's front and rear w/ spools and 5.13 gears

    still need cuting brake and comp corners.
    it has a nice low stance looks pretty good will look better with the corners on. so pics will come when i get over to kevs house becuase i stll have not figured out how to get the pics from my file to the web page.
    thanks for looking

    Sounds cool... You aren't going on any tight trails are you? with a spooled front axle. Either that or you are planning a lot of front digs...

      Hey... don't knock the spool. I have been running one for 6 years now and I don't have any problems with steering. I have only had my cutting brakes for probably 2 years. The cutting brake makes it nice, but still very managable with just the spool.

                  Hey Kev and Rich
                  I noticed that, that isn't your shop in some of the pics. Where is some of this nice fab work taking place??? :-k

                  Looks like a great truck. Keep up the good work.

                        The build looks awesome. That flat bellypan is really sweet too, nice to have everything tucked up like that.
