    My Dad and I are goin to pick a jeep tommorow and we're gonna use it as a dedicated trail rig.

    It's a 1993, V6, 4x4.
    Not sure what mods he has on there, he doesnt speak very good english so I guess we'll find out tommorow!

    I'm kinda excited for a new project so I thought I would share

    I have been reading on Wranglerforum like crazy, and no one really says exactly what it does.
    I'm assuming it improves articulation?

    And we're not really looking to do any rock crawling or anything, were gonna keep it pretty simple so I can follow along in my Taco :D

    If you lift it (I don't remember how high) then you need long arm. It is to let you have more articulation (basicaly).

    No coil springs on that one..... only leaf springs.

    But he could put a god-aweful amount of money into it and put coils under it.

    Nice!! If you have any questions.....just ask. I've had a 92 and a 94 that I built as trail rigs. This is what we had on it - sold it last summer.

    Yeah, doesn't take much to break the Dana 35.

    KaoskrewPB,
    Put in a pair of Dana 44 axles from a Grand Wagoneer - with 6 on 5.5 lug pattern. That was probably the best damn thing I did to my jeep!!!

    You are in fact looking at a 1993 Inline 6 cylinder. The only V6 that was in jeeps was back in the late 80's when they used GM's POS 2.6 liter. That there is a 4.0L 242 C.I. straight 6. It is pretty much bulletproof. Torque monster.

    I've heard lots of good things about the online 6. I know aguy that talks about knocking down decent size trees with his. Hopefully you may be actually getting a I-6

    The guy just advertized it wrong. If it is a 6 cylinder then it is the straight 6. If its not a 6 then its their 2.4L 4 cylinder that is still decent. They never had v6's in the 93-2004.

    My bad. my brother has a wrangler with coils. He got me confused cause he was talking about long arm.

    Well I just found out that I get my truck back tomorrow, so I gues it is a lucky day for both of us tomorrow.

    Changing axles is way too expensive for us right now...
    After it breaks then we will look at upgrading, but yeah I just read up on the C clip design and it doesn't look too sturdy... I guess well be carrying some spares with us!
    Also -yeah, I completely forgot that this jeep is on leafs and not coils.
    We have been looking at a few different jeeps so I just wasn't thinking.
    I will deffinetly keep you guys posted, I'm really excited for this thing!
    What do you guys reccomend for a winch in the 350$ range?
    I found a "TUFF STUFF" 12,500 pound winch for 300 and an XRC8 at like 300, Amy experience?
