JEEP HISTORY
Bought first Jeep in 1995. It was a 4-cyl
and I had it lifted with 32's. I knew
nothing at the time about gears, etc. and
I worked an hour from home so the drive
with stock gears was brutal. I traded it
for a pickup but finally in 2000, I bought
a 1979 Cherokee Chief rust bucket and the
Jeepin' bug stuck. I learned ALOT while
working on it but it was too huge and I
wanted a "real Jeep" so I sold
the FSJ and bought a 1967 CJ-5. I lifted
it and put on 32's. It was a good beach
buggy but the F-head was not powerful
enough to push 32's around the trails. In
2003 I sold a house and had enough money
to buy my current 1988 YJ. I love it
because of the "old school"
features such as the 4.2 and the diagonal
roll bars. I ended up trading the CJ-5 for
a screen enclosure on my back porch and
now I devote all my time to the YJ. I also
started the Matanzas Jeep 4x4 Club with a
buddy from work and Jeeps have ended up
consuming most of my free time and any
extra money I have.

Did you have to go with locking hubs or are you able to run with the auto hubs still?

Nice Jeep man. How do you like the Lock Right in the fron? I've been thinking of doing one myself.
