Default Wildman's TJ

Well my TJ has been thru a lot in the time I have had it. Here is what I started with.


I bought it in Sept of 2002. It had a Pro-Comp Stage II 4" lift kit. It had never been off-road before I bought it. Funny thing is it ran around Yakima with 33X14 Boggers. The gal that owned it just like the way it looked.


Then I got deployed to Iraq in Oct 2004. The Jeep sat while I was gone. I come home early due to being wounded. I had the Jeep parked right outside my window so I could look at it. As soon as I could drive it (which was before I could walk BTW) I took it down to Swabbies and had 35X13.50 tires installed. Then I picked up a Tera Flex long arm kit & Tera Low 4:1 kit & a 2LO kit. The Jeep stayed like that for a while.


Then I got a wild hair up my BUTT and decided I wanted to build a Jeep I would wheel for the next 20 years.

I started with a V-8 swap. It is a 1999 Dodge 5.2L from a Dakota. I am running a 4 speed auto behind it.


I wanted more gear selection so I ended up with a STaK's Monster Box t-case with 3.05:1 & 5.44:1 low ranges.


For the front axle I built a Ford HP44 axle narrowed to Waggy width so I can run off the shelf axles.


Rear axle is a Tera CRD60 HP custom axle. Both axles have 5.13 gear, ARB lockers and CroMo axle shafts. The front axle also has Longfield 300M u-joints.




I liked the design of the Nth Degree longarm suspension they had for the TJ so I went with that kit but with a twist. Instead of running coil springs or coilover shocks I decided to run air bags in a kit from Off-Road Only called the AiRock kit.


I have Posion Spyder front tube fenders and rear crusher corners with tube flares.

This past winter I decided that the Toyo M/T tires were not cutting it. So I pondered for a long time as to which new tire I was going to try out. Well I decided on the TSL SX tire. And figured out that I wanted to go TALL so I went with 38X12.50X16.5 tires. And since I wanted beadlocks I went with a very good DUAL beadlock rim----Military H1 (Hummer) rims.




I cut the centers out of the rims and welded in new centers which gave me a 4.25" BS and now a 5 on 5.5 BP.







Then took them down and had them powder coated.




There are a lot of other mods I have done to this Jeep. It would take me a few more pages and tons of pictures to list ever thing.
