Stook's 88 Crawler

So I had a build thread for my 90 but I ended up selling it to buy this rig. I first was part owners with my Dad in this 89 Tin Top, ran the Rubicon on Forth of July last year.



Going up Cadillac Hill.



Then I bought this 90 and built it up, changed a lot on it. Sold it for enough to buy the new rig and new 35s.



So here it is! This is how it was when I bought it. It has Toyota Axles w/ 5.29s and lockers front and rear, 6.1 T-case, Rock Block Doubler, Yota power steering and more.



Here are the new BFG KM2s.



They looks great!



Only thing I had to flex on.

You did good things to the last one. Im sure this one will be no different. Already looks good with the new rubbers. Any idea what leaf springs it has front and rear?

Starting a little further ahead than last one. I liked the direction you took on it. What are the plans/changes for this build.

Thanks Earl, right now I'm in the process of cutting the drivers door to match the passenger side. Might add some kick outs to the sliders, build some sort of tire carrier, get a sun shade, and figure out something better for the fenders like different flares or something. The ones that are on there are barely on

You kinda gave me a bit of motivation to bump my wheel base. Doubt I'll bump to 35's, but already loving the extension from the front. Looking forward to the rear tomorrow, and more perhaps later. Is that the cut yj spring reverse shackle setup?

I'm glad it was able to give you some motivation for your rig. I'm not sure what you mean by cut, but they are stock YJ springs with custom shackle hangers. While I haven't actually wheeled it yet the little bit of playing around I did on mine I really highly recommend the shackle reversal.

Thanks Earl and samnation. So the shocks work great but they were beat up and rusty so I had to do something about that.



A little sand paper and paint goes a long way.



Decided to clean and paint the rear axle as well as the rear bumper



Threw some paint on the front axle as well.



And fender flares...



Yesterday was my birthday and my amazing wife bought me a set of wake board tower speakers to mount on the cage. So of course I had to put at least one on and see how it looked.

So the passengers door was cut into a half door already so I cut the drivers side to match and welded it up. This is before grinding and paint.

Got the driver's door ground down, painted, and mounted again. It came out as a good match to the passenger side.

Different looking with the slope. Have good view when you lean/look out?

Yeah it wasn't my first choice for the design, but since the previous owner already did one side I just figured I would match it. It actually works great, just enough room for you to lean out and get a good view.

Finally got to take the Sammy out and run a local trail. Nothing too hard core but it sure was fun.

I was the only one to go back up it

Here is the video from a few weeks ago, nothing too special. There was only really one obstacle on the trail. Just thought I would share.
