This is my 3rd jeep

1990 YJ Dana 60 front and rear (welded Front) (LS Rear) 5.9 Magnum Fuel Injected, 46RE trans, NP231. 37" BFG KM2 on H2 factory wheels, Bastard pack springs and bastard bunch of other stuff. Garage built, ugly but works great! Been running it hard for years now with very little issue.

I guess since this is jeepforum I'll post. Been working on my jeep a little lately. Been abusing it for 5 years now and it's time for some love after breaking a few things last year. The plan overall is to do a frame off on it to redo everything and change up some of my redneck engineering but time is not allowing that this year so for now here is my list.

New springs front and rear
Rebuild dash from my homemade to a CJ style.
Find some cavalier seats and put them in.
Install my B&M shifter and get rid of the column shifter that has too many loose linkage parts, it will be nice to have 1st gear again.
Somehow get the original intake back on, the edelbrock air filter sucks.
I bought new tires but wish I would have gone to 40s but stuck with 37s, need to get them mounted. The 37s look small on it.

And then a bunch of little stuff. I'd like to have it ready for an annual trip I do the beginning of March.

Started last week on everything.

I wish it were bigger. 30x40 feels small

I built a 1991 YJ. Dana 60's front and rear. Full cage. It was a Yellow Islander. I've tried to find it online but no luck, bright as Yellow YJ on 38's, feel like it should be easy.

Buy my 88 and you can have the joy of building all over again...

Started working on my dash tonight. Ripped everything out and pulled the harness to get rid of all the extra wires since I put in the harness from the dodge when I first built it. It will be nice to have it cleaned up a bit.

Got the heater core swapped out last night, wish i would have bought a new fan motor as its a bitch to pull it apart.

Heading to the tire shop now to get my new 37s mounted up. Wish I would have gone 40s but these were dirt cheap. They are the offbrand ironman murders tgat are made by Hercules that make big rig tires who is also cooper tire. They have good reviews but only time will tell.

Just realized both my fox reservoir shocks are toast. Wasn't expecting that expense. Going to look in my stock room to see if I have anything that will fit for now.
