Thread: Another TJ build but with a bite — Meet Venom

    Default Another TJ build but with a bite — Meet Venom

    Purchased this project TJ that had been Offroad for a couple of years .. partially in pieces , no rear diff, and motor bastardised with half a turbo... but it had a Rubicon Express LA’s and low k’s .. originally owned by s member from the mid 2000’s Antz .

    This was back when it was new [emoji15]. It’s a 2003


    So the TJ got its name as I found some snake skin while I was cleaning it. Previous owner was a breeder [emoji15]


    So first job was rebuilding the Diffs. I had a HP30 perfect for the task , stripped it down painted and replaced the bushes. Even got the misses to help.

    Diffs were dropped off to Southcoast 4wd Centre for rebuilding with new internals, ratios to 4.88 and ARB lockers
    In the meantime I worked on the engine running and fixing some dodgy wiring .. replace alot of the hardware with new bolts n washers while everything was apart .

    The new HP30 ready for install


    The rear diff installed..


    Was a mission but installed both diffs all by myself.. [emoji51]

    Yes that last pick is a strange one .. this has a triangulated RE rear end[emoji106]


    Here I am adjusting the front steering after I installed the front.


    Nearly finished, driving light wiring was damaged needs repairing, hole in exhaust , brakes and hand brake needs replacing and extended lines.
