Mike Weaver’s ’97 TJ has gone through three completely different buildups until he ended up with what you see here. The axles are Dynatrac high-pinion Dana 60s front and rear with ARB Air Lockers and 5.13 gears spinning 39.5-inch Swampers. The tires are cleared with a totally custom link suspension with 2-inch diameter Sway-A-Way coilover shocks all the way around. The rest of the driveline consists of a mostly stock 4.0L and a factory three-speed automatic mated to an Atlas 3.8 transfer case. It clung to the trail like peanut butter on a dog tongue.
