The Real Steel YJ, our 1989 Jeep Wrangler project, is just about (finally) finished!

This was a ground-up restoration that included Dixie 4 Wheel Drive, Currie 9-Inch front and rearends, Yukon gears, Eaton Detroit Lockers, BDS suspension, MoTech aluminum block Chevy 5.3-liter V8 and 6L80 6-speed automatic, Atlas T-case, Savvy armor, and Warn ZEON 10-S Winch. Auto Meter was enlisted for the gauges, Smittybilt for the sport seats, and Lokar handles shifting chores..
