Like I don't have enough to do as it is. I have a new project going on right now. It is a 1987 Jeep YJ that I will be doing a frame off restoration, pulling the motor and putting in a new one. Lots of work ahead. The body looks great in the photos, but it is NOT!

I'll be putting on a 4" rough Country suspension lift, 1 " body lift and putting 33 inchers under it. I wasn't planning on a frame off restore, but when I got it home and saw what needed to be done I figured I would do it right.

Which, carb? I know the factory carb on the early 80s was junk everyone always put the ford mc2100 on instead. Thats a tough little carb that doesn't flood out on steep inclines. Always take the dizzy out and put a chevy dizzy in. Swap the gear on the end. You may be dealing with a complete different setup though. My 4.2 was stock . With 33 inch mud brutes and 4 inche spring lift 2 inch heavy shackle lift it was unstoppable. Gobs of low end torque. Oh yeah I got a picture of mine in jp magazine a while back. .......I traded it off for a bass boat last year.

It does have the 3.07 gears in it now. I am actually going to pick up a Dana 30 and a Dana 35 with 4.10 gears in them in a few minutes. That should help out pushing the 33's. What gearing did you have?

It was stock gearing unless it was changed before I got it. . I never got to that far,before I traded it off. I always used low range when I was trail riding so it was good there. On the hwy it did pretty good, 75 was about as fast as I wanted to take it. I had to put a throwout bearing and pilot bushing in it right before I got rid of it.

thats going to be a nice build, i like jeeps.
you can't beat those ole 258 inline six bangers they are stouter then what you think.
4.10 rears you shouldn't have any problem turning 33's over.
i think that jeep has the new process np-207 transfer case low range 2:61:1 ratio or maybe the np-231 2:72:1 ratio low range.
you will probably be slinging mud in 2nd gear low range and crawling over stuff in 1st low range.gotta love that bull dog gear.


there used to be a guy in the hood that had a cj5 with a 401 engine in it and 38 tires.i wouldn't climb in that jeep with him for love nor money,he was one crazy son of a batch
tust me he wasn't wrap tight at all :lol:

Cool project. They do seem to stack up but at least you'll never have to worry about having nothing to do :D

They do stack up but it feels good when you complete one and you sit back and just soak it up. My J4 was a total disaster when I brought it home but after 6 long, hard months here is what happened...... :D :D

You got it. I love every one of mine. My favorite is a semi rod and piston made into a trophy! Problem was everybody had to leave the show early and I was stuck with my suicide shift bike and a 30 lb trophy... I made it so it's all good!

I have not replaced the bumpers yet, they were in pretty good shape except for a slight bend in the side of the back bumper. I painted them to match the truck until I can find chrome ones for it.
