Jeep's 4x4 Page

Hi, I'm a 1990 Jeep YJ Wrangler.

I've got 31" tires and a 2" body lift. When I came to Texas my doors came off, and my top has stayed down. The only problem is that I really seem to be geared too high now that I have the 31" BFG Mud Terrains. I can barely pull the overdrive 5th gear anymore. I can't imagine what it would be like if I had 33" tires. What I really need is at least 4.56 gears and lockers in both differentials, but Goodwrench has quite a few projects with higher priorities than that.
I was even asked to be in the 4th of July Parade for the town of Lorena, just below us. That was a lot of fun.
Goodwrench really wants to do a spring over axle conversion on me. He claims that my ride will still be good because I get to keep my original springs. Any of you folks out there have any experience with spring over conversions?

11/22/97 Poor Jeep. He sure isn't getting the attention he deserves lately. With me spending so much time with Jake and on the computer, not much is happening with Jeep.
I put the top and doors back on for winter use. We met a guy bartending at a restaurant the other night who is going to give us some information on a local Four Wheeling club.
4/10/98 I got Jeep all cleaned for the Lorena Texas Police Dept. car show this past weekend. The doors and complete top are removed. All day Friday was spent detailing and cleaning. Got third place in the 4 wheel drive class. I met up with the local Heart of Texas off road club and attended my first meeting this past Tuesday evening. Today I'll be meeting some of the people to go on my first Texas off road excursion. So much for all that detailing...

Jeep did win third place in the off road class at the show. The next Friday we got our first 4-wheeling experience. There is an area close to the Waco home that has some good trails. Jeep got to run stream beds and go up and down some almost vertical hills.
After that I decided to install the urethane bushings in the suspension.

3/15/99 I got a new bumper, CB antenna and mount, as well as billit bushings for my extra mirrors yesterday. It was really pretty cold when Goodwrench got Micah to help him get started working on me under the carport.

6/23/99 I'm spending most of time as a farm vehicle right now, but at least I'm pretty useful.
