fed small block, turbo 400 trans with a 3200 stall and a np208 case. Right now the jeep is mocked up and able to clear 40s very well. I will be updating as im able to get some more work done to it. Right now I'm in process of building the motor and trans then I will be plating and stiffening the uni body, along with building the motor mounts.

Agreed. Its not the same 4.5 inch lift, stroker build thread. That's one crazy steering angle though

Well where to start. It's a 99 Cherokee that's had all the drive Tran and unnecessary parts removed down to the wire harness being stripped of all non essentials. Is getting a very healthy 350 in it that has been completely rebuilt with all new from pan to carb including complete arp engine blot and stud kit, and set of custom headers that will exit the front fenders. That will have a nice 100-150 shot on top of it. The trans is a turbo 400 with a boss hog 3200 stall and a bdm shift kit along with a few other internal mods. It's sitting on 39.5 boggers, with a set of Chevy 1 tons locked and geared to 4.56s. Still trying to decide on what hydro steer setup. Should leave the hole fairly nicely. Have xj 6.5 leaves out back and a set of 6 inch yj springs up front. The inside will be gutted of all but the seats and dash. A custom gauge cluster will be made will all auto meter gauges. Am looking do put full cage and bucket seats in it. It has along way to go but will get there first thing first it getting the uni body stiffened and plenty of bracing. It's a work in progress and not a die will be spared to make it perfect.

Haven't had a whole lot of time to work on it. But I went threw the harness and deleted all the electrical I won't need, and started to plate the unibody for the engine. Had to grind some welds cause I ran out of gas for the welder not happy about that but so far so good.
