Thanks, she gets down the trails very well and is daily driven too. Not on those 36'' TSLs though.

I've got a 78 J10 I'm building with 1ton drivetrain and v8 power too. The Cherokee is a four banger. Here they sit in the back yard. It's gonna be a really sweet trail truck. :D

I like the Yotas too. Have several friends that have them.

The XJ just has drop brackets w/ adjustable johnny jointed control arms in front, 6.25'' lift total, S10 Bastard pack rear leafs. It is very flexy and stable. It's a stock 4banger, stock 5sp AX5 manual, 4:1 NP231 transfer case w/ 2lo & wide chain kit, D30 front w/cromo axles, C8.25 rear w/cromo axles, 4:88s and auto lockers both ends. That's about a 75-1 crawl ratio. It's well armoured w/ fancy homemade bumper, rocker guards, diff guards, tc/tranny belly pan, frame stiffeners, yada yada yada. It's not super built but enough to keep me grinnin and gets driven every day.

The truck is going to be a monster. Propaned SB350, SM465 Granny tranny, NP205/203 Doubler, built D60 front and 14 bolt rear & 42'' TSLs. Got most of the parts now but won't start fab/assy until it cools off. Too old and fat for this MidSouth heat.

I've got a couple million of these XJ pics.

yea a buddy who is a body/paint guy talked me into it. did it in a night. no door jams or anything. filled in hundreds of dents too-hail damage and more. buddy told me it wouldn't be dent proof, but should be able to run it through a barbed wire fence with no probs. i don't know what he thought i planned on doing with it
The wife hates it there always guys touching it and asking about it. one guy was touching it before she even had it parked at the grocery store

dig the honcho skychi, always wanted one. Propane? how does that work? do you take an old diesel and convert?

Love the Rhino liner too. It works great in Jeep tubs and is pretty popular with offroaders.

Propane is a bolt on thing, easy really. Basicly the same components and tanks as fork trucks and such. No power loss, burns super clean, cost about the same as gasoline, gets about the same mileage and the big advantage is it's a pressurized gassious system. It doesn't care if you are upside down and is safer than gasoline. You suffer none of the problems that you have with carburetors on steep slopes and off camber stuff. It is very popular with the serious wheeling crowd.

Wheelin are fun!

Had a 1948 Willy's Jeep in 1972 it was a tough machine,but due to it's age it turned into a money pit real fast.I had a lot of good times with it before I sold it and bought a 4x4 Ford Ranger150 .
