Now that the thread Hi Jack is over, I'll post up.  Here is my junk:





And it gets towed with this truck and trailer:


specs on the jeep:
89 yj
stock 258 with 223k miles on it still runs great
swapped in TF999 auto trans
stock NP231 with SYE
High angle drivelines
SOA up front with stock YJ springs
HPD30 with 4.56's and a lockright
SUA rear with currie 4" springs
Ford 8.8 rear with 4.56's and trac loc
Full custom cage
35" MTR's (36" Iroks next)
Engine driven OBA

Lots of other goodies.. I am still trying to decide what to do with it... I don't  know if I want to continue building it, or if I want to tear it down and use the axles and such as a donor for an SAS swap in my S-10 and have a street driven trail rig again.  My Jeep is currently green stickered only because it would not pass smog, no matter what I tried :(... So I just gotta decide if I wanna just go balls out on the jeep, or if I wanna start over on a new rig.  On one hand, I really wanna keep it, since it was my first wheelin rig, and i've have it almost 10 years.  On the other hand, I'd really like to try something new.. Who knows.. Anyway.. I am here!

Yeah, it does alright... I don't have many pictures of any buildup things I've done to it.  I did at one point, but then my old photo hosting site decided to go out of business :mad:  Once I make a final decision on whether or not to continue building, I will take lots of pics and start a buildup thread :)  If I do keep building it, it will get Fuel injection, a WB stretch, new springs front and rear, a comp cut, a fuel cell, a better cage, and lots of other goodies, which I will be sure to document :)

Looks really nice.  How much difference is there in the axle width front and rear?  Are you considering spacers in the rear to even it out?

Here is my latest find.  It is an 86 that I picked up for $400.  It didn't run when I bought it, it was dirty as hell from sitting in the guys driveway for about 4 months.  The headliner is shot and it had so much loose ended wiring under the dash and engine comp. from it being a forest service vehicle prior.  It has a 3" skyjacker lift and 31" MTR's.  I gave it a tune up and it runs pretty good for having the 2.8  :thumbdown:

Just got one yesterday, a '95 ZJ Laredo w/ 318 and 101K miles.  It's bone stock with the (glaring) exception of a K&N air filter - appropriate, since we bought it from Stocker, who bought it new.  It's pretty much immaculate and is not going to get real dirty, and probably won't get any significant mods.  We bought it to replace my wife's beloved Camry wagon, which was rudely removed from service by a drunk driver two weeks ago, so the Jeep is basically going to be the new grocery getter and road trip rig.  Gotta love one-owner vehicles, especially when you get family pricing  :biggthumpup:  Looks like Amanda and I owe Stocker and Mrs. Stocker big for this!  :beerchug:

Dump the K&N if it is only a replacement filter.  It isn't giving you much, if any power, and doesn't filter as well as other filter types.  The Amsoil air filters are expensive but should be the best based on testing.  I used to run K&N but wouldn't anymore.
