    Err, yeah, the WJ looks too nice, that's the problem; it needs a few dents and scratches .

    Placed an order for a front JK Rubi D44, built in e-locker 4.10s, but I found yesterday their backordered ; if I get it, then I'll order the rear as well to replace my existing D44 alum. Will see, but long arms are going in next 2-3 weeks.

      Wow, that's a lot of changes to your rig! the long arm will be awesome and the front being stronger and locked will be really nice! I know how it feels to have something on backorder. I waited 6 months for my Atlas. Update the thread as you get more stuff done! Not a lot of WJ's out there, but I have wheeled with one:

        Is that Ryan's rig? (Arlo). I have an aussie locker in the rear right now, works pretty well, but I want to run 35s, so the plan is JK swap and a 4:1 Atlas.

        I'm a pic ***** , so here's another one at Devil's den back when it was legal to wheel there.

          No, that rig was a guy in CO where I used to live. never did get to wheel the den. It was under the microscope when I moved here.

          I have 4 trips on my Atlas 4spd and I am lovin' it!

            theres a couple more. the one where the blazer is stuck was a huge hole i went through but i had no front drive shaft on at the time. i almost made it but once i started heading up out of the hole that was where it all ended. then of course when i went to startit again after the garbage battery just wouldnt do it.

              That's a Big Blazer. You can have the mud - yuck. Bad things happen everytime I dive in, so I stay away! And Rocks are SO much easier on components

                Here is a shot of my Cherokee - it has been a LOT of fun, and it gets me anywhere I need to go. I have a locker in front, Posi in the rear, 33" Mud Kings, a 12k pound winch, rock rails, etc.

                    You can go to www.pirate4x4.com and find out more than you ever wanted to know about offroading just about any vehicle or custom make your own. Check out the forum areas. They also have great in depth tech articles.

                    Just be aware that those guys will eat you alive if you don't search or if you ask dumb questions. It is not a place for the 'faint of heart'.

                          That's going to be a nice looking Gladiator. I've got a 68 in the very earliest stages of a rebuild.


                          My other J-truck. It's waiting for me to drop in the Cummins, and my latest toy, a '68 Unimog. Can't wait to start playing with it.

                            4BT or 6 in the J-truck? It would be awesome either way. What are your plans for the mog? Cool rigs for sure.

                              4bt. From what I've read there are too many space issues when trying to squeeze in the extra 2 cylinders. The 4 will be plenty of motor for the truck.

                              The mog is just a toy. Always wanted one and I figure I'll fix up the box into a little camper box and maybe see if I can get it to pull double duty hauling my 4-whlr.

                                Start a thread here when you're swapping in the 4BT! I had a friend put one in his EB and it was awesome!!

                                Mogs are cool! Let me know if you decide you don't need the axles
