Post by 88_YJ » Tue Oct 06, 2015 11:25 am

Banks Monster Exhaust with hi-flow Cat
NP231 SYE and CV driveshaft
BDS 3.5 inch lift springs with 1 inch boomerang shackles
JRC One ton under the knuckle steering
Bilstein 5100 series shocks
Metal Cloak Arched tube fender, rock guards, and mod cut rear
Double D Fabrication custom flat dash with Dakota Digital VHX gauges
35x12.50-15 General Grabber AT2's with Pro Comp Wheels

Pending to do list:

ARB lockers front and rear
Custom Roll Bar
Rear bumper
Tire Carrier (tub mounted)
Stubby front bumper with winch
New seats
stereo system install
88 YJ
4.5 inch lift
35's
AX15 and Fuel Injection Swap
Metal Cloak Armor
Ford 8.8/Dana 30 4.56

Oh I definitely have pictures. I need to get them loaded to photobucket so I can attached them. Once that happens I will get a few loaded.

I wish there were more 4x4 shops around the area, prices are pretty steep up here for work.

It has it's moments. Lol
06 TJ, rusted out frame, fenders, and tub. Rocking a 6" body lift.

Why am I such a prick? Everything is relative, you should meet some of my friends.

Welcome to wv. Sounds like a nice YJ, definitely post up some pics. I prefer flickr over photobucket.

I am just down the river from Red House.

I'll be sure to check the Facebook page out. Would like to get into some rides here soon once my axle is done (Hopefully) by next weekend. I Talk to S&S about it and they seem to be the best price around the area (of the two I've found).

But I'm active duty Marines and here for roughly 3 years.

Thanks for all the warm welcomes.

Where at?

I see a lot of YJs around the Red House/ Winfield area. I love all the love of the square headies.
