    Haven't really done anything today, but most days I'm adding or improving on something. Last big mod was Eaton E-lockers, 4.56 gears and 35s!!

    I have a fuel leak at the back and assume it's the fuel tank because the spot on the concrete is right below the tank skid plate. I haven't put much fuel in it to be leaking from any of the hoses. Picked up a new tank and hope to get started on the install this weekend if the GF lets me LOL,,, it did get a full bath Monday after all the riding in the back 40 and getting it stuck several times,,,, man was it dirty LOL.

    I have an exhaust leak but the smell is so strong I changed oil plugs wires cap rotor. It doesn't have the catalytic on could that be the cause.

    Just scored a different rear end found 8.8 ford with 410 gears to replace my dana 35 . It start its life on a Explorer then modified to fit a Comanche. Next step on my 93 YJ. It cost me $100.00 it has already have new spring pads and disk breaks. The person told me had posi in it from factory. But I check codes it doesn't, so here comes a locker next.

    Started to notice a slight vibration in the driveline while under load crawled under the Jeep and the Double Cardan joint had the u-joints going bad in it. Started the disassembly and low and behold my local auto parts store does not carry the proper u-joints. After some research I found out that the u joints are a 1310 series to 1330 series. Spicer part number 5-134x. They will be here in a few days and then the reinstall starts.

    Installed the Soft top, painted my red half doors black, and sawed off the ugly mirrors/lights the PO welded to the windshield frame. Long road to go but happy with the progress.

    2" Superlift kit. 305/65R/17. Numerous other mods. And more to come
    Looks awesome so far. Great job.
    You plan on leaving it fender flareless? Just my opinion. But I think it would look sweet with flat flares. If you get the 9" flares. Those BFGS would fill'em in nicely.

    I bet the 6in will cover them well. I ordered the 6in Xenon flat fender flares for my YJ. Painted them black and Can't wait to install them.

    Agreed. 6s would look great also.
    Always liked those BFG KOs. Had them on my XJ. Awesome tire. Can't just cover them up with flares. Lol.

    Again.YJ looks great. Keep the pics coming.:)

    I'll be doing full-body work and repainting it eventually. Since there's some pretty bad rust holes, I have to get new fenders before flares. Haven't decided what kind yet. I bought the MT Sidebiter 2 wheels and will be getting slightly bigger tires. I like the flat fenders but the PO did some shifty axle work and all of that will need to be fixed prior.
