Tigger a TJ-6

A 1998 Jeep Wrangler TJ Sport Utility 2D build by @shawn_a48jeep

Six years ago I bought this Jeep from an owner of MCE Fenders. He had previously stretched the wheel base by 15" to fit a Wrangler Unlimited soft top. Axles were beefed-up and a Clayton long arm was installed. It rode in this configuration for many years, making 2,000 mile round-trips to Moab several times. I have recently updated wheels and tires, swapped steering knuckles for a Big Brake kit, replaced ball joints and some other tidbits. In recent years we added a Gobi rack and use the TJ-6 for camping and exploring. I have updated the shocks, added lower gearing and changed the lighting throughout. The Currie Currectlync has been rebuilt, along with the front track bar to maintain great road handling as well as off road driving. The TJ-6 is driven it to work most days of the week and enjoyed on weekends for exploring. While I can't weld or fab, I try to do all the maintenance and upgrades myself. Planning is in the works for a Golen 4.6 Stroker built and installed soon
