Post by Nick@HappyTrails4x4 on 8/6/2011, 6:22 pm

so i decided to build another XJ to do some wheeling.

picked this up as a trade for some labor to install a lift kit on another jeep.

1992, 4.0, AX-15, NP231, D30, D35


1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" IMAG0019

first up was the intake swap from a 99+ 4.0.
1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" 17b0d649


then i pieced together a cheapo lift consisting of a bastard pack, JK Rubicon shocks, Rustys 4.5 coils, JK lower control arms and some homebrew UCA's
1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" 91caa06f
1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" Fbc97dcd



Added Rustys steering and track bar
1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" IMAG0004



then made my doors removable
1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" 4eeb4585




then threw some 31" BF M/T's on it on some 16" JK steelies
1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" D02de39f
1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" 6f74ea36

took it to a few events and had a blast
1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" 100MEDIA95IMAG0072



then it was time to fix some rust
1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" F878d37c



1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" 84673d4b


and then add some bedliner

I loved the way the Jeep rode and flexed, so i kept it that way for a while

1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" IMAG0861

and then i decided i didnt like leaf springs any more...so i fixed that
out with the old d35 and bastard pack, and in with the new stuff....which included
-locked 8.8 with truss
-4:10's
-double traingulated 4 link
-shock hoop with 13" shocks
-cherry bomb muffler (only thing that would fit)
-SYE

that is one sweet jeep. very nice build. if you trianglate the control arms do you have to run track bars?

Watching you go thru Christman's obstacle was one of the best parts of being there that day. 1992 XJ "Project Florida Crawler" 917WellsBrosmudbog068You were nervous as hell. That thing did great.

Post by Nick@HappyTrails4x4 on 10/17/2011, 6:56 pm

so i got a couple things done.

-made a shifter plate and new boot to keep the heavy flow of exhaust fumes out of the cab and to clean up the shifter.

- and installed the stock LJ steering (thanks for the hookup Jaxwranglerunlimited!)...death wobble is now GONE!


unfortunetly i dont think ill get much else done before Jeeptoberfest, were pretty booked up in the shop and ill be pretty busy before and after work.

the bumper i built friday night,... made from 1/4" and a couple of 3/8" pieces.

its not completely done yet. i still want to add a reciever hitch in the middle, and add some steel to the side and the bottom, along with doing some more cutting to clean it up some. but, i just needed to get the d-ring mounts done so i could have a recovery point for jeeptoberfest

this will give you an idea of how i want to finish it (forgot to draw in the reciever hitch)

the red pieces get cut off, and the blue is added on both sides. and also an angled piece at the bottom which you cant see in this picture
