    Booger Build

    When i got my YJ 3 years ago it was stock with SOA and 35" krawlers.



    That only lasted one summer, i went 4" SUA with some waggy D44s and some TMR DIY beadlocks



    It worked alright but i decided i wanted a cage and some susp. seats for a better safety factor... So me and a friend of mine got to work.
    It went in the garage and when it saw the sun again it looked a little different:



    ill post up all the step by step photos i have of our 4 month build but tonight i ran out of time. stay tuned

    Hey Korey,
    Great to see you're going to post up your build.
    Your rig was one of my favourites at Jeep Jamboree and it was good to see that you actually use it.
    (I was your tail gunner trail guide on the Purdy trail and host up at the cabin)
    I'm looking forward to this. Cheers.

    We started Feb 1st last year and rolled the jeep into the 18x26 garage where everything was done.


    gutted the tub




    we decided it looked way cooler without any fenders, we rolled with that idea later on.


    after some debating i took a sawzall to the tub and was therefor commited.





    After i cut the tub, we put it outside for a bit and Kev got to work on designing my new cage
    more bars...



    With the frame bare i took the oportunity to toss the BA-10 5spd that was in it and salvaged a AW4 from a cherokee in a buddys backyard.

    Tires are 35"x13.50 on 15x11.50 wheels.

    Next we started working on the wheelbase. 11" of stretch in the rear





    We hung the rear shackles off the bumper




    After that hurdle was jumped we made a tape cage for a visual

    Once we were sure on the design it was time to start bending real tube to make the rear section of the cage





    Then we made a sort of chassis table and started on the cage Not on the jeep


    had to test it out


    we then put the base of the cage on the chassis and held it on the frame with some boatsides

    we decided that what i had thought we were reusing of the tub was too rotten and neither of us felt like fixing it. so we cut off the parts we wanted and pitched the rest

    plate sides




    with the cowl


    then we started on the front section.
    A pillar bars and a bent eyebrow



    test fit the dash pad and added some more bars

    tied the front into the A pillar bars through the body.








    made a new tranny mount and modded the skid for the AW4







    then body panels for the rear.

    We started next on the front tube work.
    shortened up the overhanging bumper (approx 7" cut off) by cutting both frame and bumper then welding everything together as one


    made some fender bars..

    put some supports next to the grill



    then cut the hood to fit the new fender opening.


    looks slick IMO


    since we sunk the grill into the frame a couple inchs, we lost all the clearance for the hood at the cowl and had to do some body work to fix the gap.
