Thought I would introduce myself, I am Gray (jeeper350) from Temple Texas. I own a 87 YJ and a 96 2 Door Tahoe 4x4. The Tahoe has 32's and no lift. The Jeep has...well here are some of the mods. Chevy360, TH350 tranny, Atlas2 (4.3), Front and rear Dana60's with 5.13 gears and Detroit lockers, 3" Skyjacker springs, SOA, 1"Body, front extended 5" with a shackle reversal and buggy spring, rear axle moved back 3", dual Optimas, dual alum. radiators, BulletProof front bumper, custom rear bumper, Autometer gauges, and a few other mods...
I got a 94 YJ, it had a stock 2.5L, but It is in the shop right now for a 350 chevy. It has rancho 5000 shocks with an add a leaf, heavy duty steel bumpers with winch bracket. Bestop soft top, a few visual things... other than that, its stock (for now.) I am from Charlevoix Michigan.
Front Chevy Dana 60 Kingpin style full length axle, Detroit locker (have to settle for a Dana 44 HD Chevy front for now, until I find the Dana 60)
Rear Corporate 14 Bolt, spooled
4.3L Vortec Chevy V-6
6" Coil and Leaf Spring lift w/Revolver Shackles in the rear
Built Turbo 350 Chevy
NP 205 Gear Drive Transfer Case
Full Exoskeleton, with integrated pass-through endoskeleton
Autometer Guages thoughout
35" Cut Boggers
Corbeau Racing-style seats with 5-point harnesses
Quite a bit of sheet metal work, to truly complete the Hybrid look
6" RE Lift kit
I hope to have this project complete by our Tellico trip next year, around October. I will be doing all the work myself, with the aid of my Master Mechanic James and my Welder Brian. Should prove to be quite a challenge, but it will make an awesome Rockcrawler...I think...:wink:

We just purchased an 88' XJ Cherokee Laredo. It's pretty much stock except for the aftermarket cup holders I bolted into the center console(woo-hoo!!!). Now, if I could just convince the wife we need a 6" Rubicon Express lift and 33" tires down the road...
My daily driver is a '98 2WD Ram 1500 QC shortbed. I'm STILL researching for an off-roadable suspension for it(not many out there for it) so I can have a little fun out in the desert.
Im from Wisconsin, I wrote to this before but wasnt sure what my ride was exactly going to be, but now I do.
Update on my ride. I am getting, for sure a, '92 Jeep Cherokee. Putting 3" Skyjaker or Rusty's system with leaf packs, 2" daystar coil spacers, 2" rear leaf blocks, black steel wheels, custom paint and bumpers, safari rack, four off-road lights, and a stereo system. For now I am going to be running my 30x9.5 Mickey Thompson Baja Belteds that wickedakota had on his dakota when it was small, but as soon as those wear out im going to be buying either 31x10.5 or 32x10.5 tires. I aint sure exactly what kind yet. If anyone has any suggestions feel free to tell me.
So Powerful, they have to keep them behind bars. Its a Jeep thing, you wouldnt understand.
