    Lots of YJ builds popping up. Me like

    Look good!

    Need to get inspired for the winter, although this winter I dont want to do much to it just improve the weaknesses.

    thanks its fun to drive! and the 3/4 axles were fine with the 38's. it was an 8 bolt d44 and rear d60, but they were both open so not to much stress, plus i behaved with my right foot. if you want something to beat on 1 tons is the way to go, but if you have some self control you can still have fun with the 3/4 ton stuff
