PostSubject: Black Betty, my 95 YJ Build thread   31st August 2012, 4:13 am

I'm new to the board and figured I would introduce myself and my girl at the same time. She is currently still a daily driven toy so as of right now she isn't going to the extreme, but with anything, the more things you break the better it becomes because lets face it, replacing with replacement parts just isn't any fun.

Currently she is a stock 1995 YJ Sport with the 4.0 and 5sp.

Mods:
31x10.50r15 BfGoodrich Mud Terrains on TJ Grizzleys
37x14.00r15 SuperSwamper Irok Bias Plys on 15x10 M/T Classic II's
12,500lbs. winch (sitting here but isn't installed yet)
Fenders and quarters cut to fit 37's
Custom drop down tailgate (not finished completely, still needs latches and weatherstripping)
RLC rear tube bumper w/ receiver

Future Mods/Wish List: (will be updated as things are moved from this list to the mods list)
Belly Up Kit
Highline
Boat Sides
Lockers
Front and Rear axle swap
SYE
Tom Woods Driveshafts
Rocker Knockers
Rear Body Armor
Front bumpers

Now for the good stuff. The pictures.

The day I brought her home, 6/22/12


The first time I took her off road.


After installing the new tires and removing the "Renegade" decals.


After installing the new tires, I thought I could make it up one of the more aggressive trails at DTOR and to my dismay I found out the jeep's front driveshaft doesn't like the Jeep going airborne and landing causing a shock to it.


We actually welded the front driveshaft back together in order to give me 4wd up to about 20mph. That's how much we had to add back into the shaft due to it twisting in half and shortening itself, not to mention what had to be cut off.


That's all for tonight. Will get some more pics up soon showing winch plate and winch.

Not afraid to get it muddy or stuck lol.

The bumper was about 6" from touching the mud below it and my drivers side wheel wasn't touching the bottom of the rut. Water was into my floorboards to my ankles while working the peddles




Here is the aftermath of another mud hole that I managed to make it through... Multiple times lol.

You should tell them, "No, the off road gods place a force field around my jeep that mud cannot penetrate!" Lol.

I bought the winch off eBay with fairlead rollers and the winch plate itself I'd a diy project. It's actually a little short and I have to address that problem buy the width is perfect from frame rail to frame rail.
