A 2005 Jeep Wrangler LJ Unlimited Rubicon 4WD 2dr 4x4 LWB build by Josh S

Bought this jeep in 2016 as a 6 speed manual Rubicon LJ. It's been through an few different lives, bought it with 4" lift and 35's. During the first few years I built it up to a fairly capable crawler/daily driver with a 3.5" metalcloak lift and fenders with 37" Pitbulls. Wheeled it like this in Moab, Texas, Arkansas, and Missouri. After a few broken axle shafts and a broken ring and pinion, I decided to upgrade the drive train in the fall of 2020. Currently finishing up ton swap with 14 bolt rear and D60 front with 3 link, 4 link, coil overs and 39" BFG's. Wheelbase went from 103" stock to 111" after 4" rear stretch and 4" front stretch.
