    Congratulations on a nice build on a budget but if trail performance is a priority, you have about one too many feet of lift on that thing. Seriously, knock it down a lot. Tire size is no excuse for CN tower-sized lifts. If you are just building a bog buggy, then I perfectly understand the lift. But you have some amazing trails out your way that will not have any trouble handing you your ass with your COG being that far out to lunch. You will not be happy at that height. This is not meant to be derogatory, just some constructive input, ya know?

    ^ i agree... but it looks like nice work, but TOO big, 3" BL is asking for trouble, what did you make the BL out of?

    and IMO 37" tires on 20" rims... not my cup of tea. you wont get much sidewall flex out them... if its a street rig then none of this matters

    i hope there is a bigger garage door somewhere... it looks like that will have to ride on the rotors to get it out

    The YJ Now

    The jeep will mostly be a mud bogger, some trails and a little road driven. I dont like trailer queens and with the 42" tires i think it looks great. I was on 33s for a year wanted more, and 35 aint much gained so next big step was 40" plus. and with the full width axles its plenty wide, i have 6" bushwacker flares and the tires still stick out 8". LOL





    And to get it out of the garage the roll bar came out, the windsheild flopped forward then had to recline the seats to clear the door frame.

    I love it waiting on driveshafts, brakes and shocks which should all be here by end of april. I love my new monster truck!!!

    Thanks Mike

    Total Monster!!! The hood sticker suits the build style to a tee. I'm sure you will be able to drive it most places you want to go. Just might be kinda lame on super steep climbs/side hilling/rock knar stuff. I'm sure you know this already. Looks killer though!

    You could always cut the firewall/tunnel/floor/fenders, and take some bodylift out next winter if you don't like how it handles.

    Really like the way it looks though. Kids dream machine.

    Brakes

    Thanks everybody wonders how i get it out of my 2 car garage.

    I converted the rear to disc brakes today, using 85 Gm 2500 4x4 front calipers and rotors. Made my own backing plate out of 3/8" plate steel and a little elbow grease.


    Then installed the new racing seats i got for $100.


    Look better then the old probe seats i had in before.

    These were nice but no side support and beat to hell.

    The brakes i used 95 GM 1500 2wd front flex lines, rear was 85 GM 2500 4x4 front flex lines to calipers and 83 Dodge 1/2 ton rear flex line from frame to axle. Upgraded to a 85 E350 Van Master cylinder from more braking power, just wondering whether to run proportioning valve or not, some ppl say yes some say no.

    If you wanna check out monsters, go to GOCMS.com and check them out.
    If you have to ask how much it costs to buy one of thier kits..lol..they start at $80,000.00 . No tires smaller than 46's, and only big blocks, and they launch these trucks 30 feet in the air, over and over, with no breakage. AH, what money can do eh?
