4 of 8
This '87 YJ belongs to Ashley Booth of Farmington, New Mexico, and doesn't have much YJ left-even the tailgate was swapped for a CJ-7 unit. Ashley and her grandfather built it as her senior project for high school. Under the hood is a 302ci Ford V-8 with a true-dual exhaust system and a 470cfm Holly Truck Avenger. Behind that is a Ford AOD automatic transmission and a Dana 300 that sends power out to the front Dana 44 and rear Dana 60 (pulled from a '74 Dodge) with 4.88 gears and ARB Air Lockers. The custom suspension lift clears the 37x12.50R16.5 military Goodyear tires on aluminum American Racing rims.
