    My Happy Pill

    Originally my build was called BubbaBee but decided to change the name.

    A bit about my Juggy:
    It started out as a 1988 YJ which i picked up for 1000.00 bucks. I stripped it down to the frame and sold off most of it making my money back on the purchase. This created my base of the frame, cowl and hood.


    I purchased a 1979 K30 1 ton frame to get my axles. This frame was soooo huge!

    Picked up the new tires and rims, they were huge compaired to the old 29"ers

    Put in the front dana 60 axle, I was preping it to go over to Josh's (cage artist). We were going to be
    backhalfing the frame with a 4 link aswell as making the cage.



    Once the majority of the tubing was done we began making the 4link in the rear

    Engine install!, had to put her on her
    knees to fit the engine in!

    Next came front - rear brakes and gas tank



    First time out around the yard.

    Took her back to josh's and we 3 linked the front and installed the new coilovers and pillow block.

    You should've kept it squared eyed . Otherwise looks pretty sweet.

    Chris, that thing looks bad ass. Where you sticking those light bars? Is your new nickname Tiny by chance?

    Hey Chris, haven't put them on yet. I have to bend some more tube this week for the light bar. No always have the same nick of Dirtyperl. Unless your refering to the 60 pounds i have lost for getting ready for comps lol...
    Mud, my goal was to stay Jeep as much as possible in this build. I happend to get a CJ for parting out and the front end and it fit much nice because its more narrow. I still like YJ's though...

    Looks ok, I'm guessing it is one of those "nice from a far, but far from nice" rigs once you get up close.
    Nit picking maybe, just seems rushed... any reason you welded those side panels in? Threaded inserts would have a much better idea... meh, to each their own I guess.
    If I could offer some advice, scrap it!















    Seeya Friday, be ready to work!
    insert something witty here

    Looks great Chris! My Happy Pill. lmao, that's awesome. . Curious about the fuel injected 360. It's done or going to be done? Easy, hard, cheap, pricey, sneaky? Cheers
