We caught Ryan Galford's CJ-grille-equipped '93 YJ coming off the trail Tuesday evening. We missed it on Monday as Ryan spent the day in Cle Elum chasing down engine sensor gremlins (thanks, NAPA!). The Jeep's build took 18 months and was finished the day before Trail Tour started so a few problems were to be expected. We were glad to see it motoring along with its Chevy TBI running smoothly and spinning those 37-inch Krawlers through the Washington muck. Other features of this clean and simple machine include RE 4.5-inch spring-under leaf springs with M.O.R.E. perches and shackles controlling a Dana 44 front and Currie High-Clearance 60 rear. A 700R4 spins a twin-stick 300 T-case and Tom Wood's driveshafts. Ryan looks forward to enjoying many more runs in the Northwest with his family in his new Jeep after all his hard work.
