Realized I haven't posted since I bought my YJ. So I'll throw some progress pictures in as thoughts and plans have changed as with any project. Original plan was for 33's. now due to new parts coming into play. Plan is for 35's.

Image
This was over last winter. 1" shackles and 31's. ended up adding a RE 2.5" lift to this and removing the roof rack.

Image

Image

Evans Creek for the first time. 311 and 520. Did really well for 3.07 and open diffs.

And how she sits now... JK this was a sweet YJ I saw at church.

Image

The winter project is about to begin. Wagoneer Dana 44's. 4.56's, ARB front, auburn LSD rear, and 35's to replace my 31's. also planning on metalcloak fenders up front. I have TJ flares I will toss on the rear to open the wheel well up.

Nice project. Love YJs. You already have D44 ARB? I've got a brand new RD117 Air locker.

A few new pieces showed up this week.


Anyone on here that has done a wagoneer swap on a YJ? I have questions about the front and can't seem to find a straight answer. I'm planning on staying SUA, and I'm not sure about the front perches and shock mounts. Do they have to be moved or not? Also if the perches have to be moved. How was the drivers side one handled?

No new parts. Went up to Evans Creek today looking for snow. Found some.

So birthday/Christmas gifts started showing up. Got an ARB dual air compressor with air inflation kit. Waiting on my ruff stuff steering to arrive.

I'm curious about where to mount my air compressor. Wondering if the MORE mount for the 99-06 TJ mount would work. I don't have AC, so I was considering that spot as well.

Anyone have pictures of their mount locations?

I use the MORE mount for my ARB twin in the only spot it fits under the JK hood...

I mounted mine under the seat in my LJ to keep it cooler, less of a theft target and I could hear it running. The bracket we made at CMM Offroad was a success so we offer it for sale with the Lord anti-vibration mounts and blind nutserts if you need them. Take a look.

Look at the photos and you get the idea. One of the issues I've had with this compressor, and it's minor, is the fan blows cooling air directly and the relays. The relays, if the rig gets used in very dusty conditions, tend to then fill with dirt causing intermittent failure. I've found that having it mounted under the seat or in the back of the cab is much better for longevity than doing it under the hood.

Have you ever tried Plastidiping the relays? I have done quite a few other electronics with great success.
