JEEP HISTORY
I got hooked by my neighbors in fall '08
and just got a stock TJ march '09. RC
2.5" springs an 2.2 shocks went on
June '09. In July '09 I did a complete
brake overhaul after my brake lines
exploded on the road. New lines, rebuild
the rear drums, and new brake pads and
rotors up front. Built my bumpers in my
welding class in school. Did a frame swap
cause mine was rusted through in 14 days
start to finish. Also did a 1.25" BL
and 1" MML and swapped in axles with
4.88s and a Lockright in the front while I
was at it. April 2011 I rebuilt the top
end of my motor to fix an exhaust leak.
May 2011 Got a D44 out of a Rubicon with
4.88s and factory locker swapped in.
Shortly after wheeling over memorial day
weekend, I had to replace the clutch and
install a SYE. In October I installed
Undercover Fab Works Ultra High Clearance
s2kid plate and engine skid to give me a
total belly hight of 17"s. December I
added a Smittybuilt 8,000 winch with
synthetic line, and proceeded to replace
the master cylinder, and booster after
some brake failures. August 2012 I sold
my old 33" MTZs in a favor of a set
of 35" Kevlars for off-roading, an a
set of BFG A/Ts on Moabs for everyday
driving. I also finished my York OBA set
up complete with a 3 gallon air tank
installed by my friend Thomas at TB Fab.
November 2012- I swapped out my front
2.5" springs and stack of spacers for
a set of 4" springs. I also rebuild
almost every suspension join, tierod end,
and steering box to make it handle a 45
minute drive to class better. 2013
brought a lot of wheeling and replacing
floor pans from the norther rust. Started
spring break, but lasted 3 months. I also
got a Miata late in the year, so race car
stuff is happening. 2014 was the year of
tube fenders. Wheeling slowly is dyeing
off as people are starting families,
getting married, or buying houses. only
went wheeling twice due to other peoples
lack of interest, and me being
busy. 2015- Went to the dark side, and
bought an 88 MJ, 4.0 auto 4x4. Previous
owner swapped in a 94 motor, but never
finished it. Got it running after a month,
and it blew a head gasket. More to come on
that. Fixed a bunch of little things on
the TJ, and still playing with the race
car. I'm still learning as I go, but I'm
learning fast.
