Jeeps history

Purchased in Sept of 2010. Originally a Renegade model equipped with an AMC 304, T-150 3 speed and Dana 20 tease. Had the usual 4” lift with 33” tires. Had a Detroit trutrac in the original rear axle with upgraded one pc shafts. Front Dana 30 was totally stock. As soon as I got it home I removed the 304 and three spd. It got a tbi’d sbc and sm465 adapted to a Dana 300 tcase with 4:1 low range. Wheeled it in this config for a few yrs. Worked ok. In 2017 it got an LS swap, 4L80E and NP241C tcase. Also got an HD D44 front axle with full case Detroit locker. Rear axle was swapped out for a Ford 9” with Strange 3rd member and a Yukon Zip locker. Rear suspension got a double triangulated 4 link setup. Gave it a fresh paint job and except for the hood/fenders. All rust removed from the body, fresh metal welded in.
