    89 yj soa buildup

    I have been building this for about 4 months now and it is finally about ready to go and be blasted and painted (frame only).
    Its an 89 yj with a ford 9" and hp d44 up front. SOA with 5.13 gears and full lockers. i dropped shackle mounts 4 inches. converted to 4.0 litre. we moved rear axle back 2 inches and made up our own anti wrap bar. we also converted the rear brakes to disc i am using a gas tank out of a pontiac aztec for clearance. all sitting on 38.5 tsl swampers. i will post more pics after weekend whaaen the rest is finalized and welded out these pics are week or two old. as you can see the tub is not in great shape but i am doing what i can with it till i can find something better.

    i use what i have layin around for all my projects too, it keeps my brain working, you know, using what you've got on hand because it's already paid for. i like the project, did you have to replace some of the frame? some sections look new.
