Picked up some teraflex stuff for christmas.
Belly up, front long arms, front speed bumps, and rear short flex arms. Im going to build my own rear long arms later this year due to the 5" stretch.


Also for christmas my dad gave me the rear seat out of his LJ since he bought a GR8Tops half cab and won't use it anymore.


I've also made the decision to hold off on the 1 ton stuff due to being deployed later this year. By the time im back from deployment I should be able to build the jeep exactly how I want.

Changed direction a little bit but I like how its turning out...


As it sits right now: 111" wheelbase, 1.25" BL, stock springs, 19 5/16" frame height, JK front teraflex high pinion 44, trussed stock JK rear axle, 40x13.50x17 old style MTR's, teraflex pro lcg long arms etc

Both axles need to be pushed forward around an inch from where they are now, hoping to be ready for safari but I guess we will see

Been off the forum for a while due to a deployment with the Army and lots of other things. The jeep wheeled great on the 44's and 40's but I eventually swapped in 70" wide teraflex axles with ARB's and 41.5" pitbull rockers, raceline beadlocks, atlas 2 etc. Wheeled the jeep a ton over the past year and then sold it in November to a guy in lake tahoe. I miss the jeep but I don't regret the sale.

Thanks Bart! Hopefully I'm here for a while this time :rofl:

It was a little hard being jeep-less and I wasn't planning on buying another LJ right away but my brother in law bought this one at auction and I couldn't resist.

I don't have any plans at the moment so we will see what happens I guess

Welcome back and thank you for your service.

Missed this prior but the LJ came back from the wreck nicely. Personally I liked it better before the last axle swap. I liked it being all white on D44's a bit better, but that's just me.

Looking forward to your new LJ build. I miss my son's LJ and I think they are one of the best one's built, with the exception of my 2011 JKUR of course.:D

Welcome back dude! The damage doesn't look to bad on this beauty. I'm excited to see where you take this one. From our conversations, it sounds like a fun one for sure.
