    Back in a jeep

    After a few years without a trail rig, picked up this thing yesterday. Going to keep it fairly simple, no links or coilovers. It needs a new engine (2.5). So if you know of a 2.5 for sale, or a complete 4.0 for a swap, let me know.

    The intention is to keep it within Ultra4 stock class spec, so I have the option of racing it if I wanted to.

    We need another turbo 2.5L to gawk over, but that wouldn’t fit in stock class I don’t think.
    Only wheeled Kia Sorento in Nevada on 31's.

    Nope. If I can find a good 2.5 cheap I'll put it in, otherwise I'll just swap to a 4.0.

    Nice! White was always the best color on the YJ (biased having had one myself)

    What exactly does stock class allow, or NOT allow? I saw some Toyota’s and a few Grands were popular. I just don’t know enough to look at the rules and understand what is and isn’t allowed. Stock axles and suspension style, correct?

    Axles, transmission and tcase are not restricted. Stock motor and suspension configuration are required.
