Never Turn Back
Beau Holgate of Belleville, Ontario, says his orange '90 YJ has yet to fail him and that he's never had to turn around…yet. Sure, that's the type of talk that can jinx your next trip, but his rig sounds like a solid buildup. The Jeep has a 2-inch body lift, and the suspension has been converted to spring-over axle with Skyjacker shocks along with new OEM leaf springs in the front and Crown Automotive heavy-duty leaf springs in the rear. The front axle is a Dana 30, and the rear is a Dana 35 with an Aussie locker and Alloy USA axleshafts. Everything rides on 31x10.50R15 Hercules Trail Digger mud tires on Eagle Alloy wheels. Other upgrades include a custom rollcage, rock sliders and winch hoop, a Smittybilt rear bumper with tire carrier, a MileMarker SEC8 winch, differential guards, and an interior coated with bedliner.
