Mingo is a 1998 Jeep TJ Wrangler Sport: This gun metal blue ’98 TJ belongs to our friend Jinks Heistand. (Yup. That’s his real name!) It’s got all sorts of modifications including a 4.5″ Rubicon Express suspension lift and 35″x 10.50 Interco Super Swamper tires. The rear axle is a Dana 44 with a Detroit electric locker while the front has the original Dana 30 axle with an OX Locker. Both have 4.56 gears. We installed a 1″ Daystar body lift along with their 1″ raised motor mounts to get a little extra clearance. There’s also a short shaft kit installed in the original NP231 transfer case along with a Tom Wood’s Custom Driveshafts rear driveshaft. For safety’s sake we added a Rock Hard 4×4 bolt-in roll cage to protect his noggin just in case he gets a little crazy. For recovery work, there’s a Warn 9000i winch mounted up front. Naturally, we also installed a slew of Skid Row Offroad products including: Front & Rear NightCrawler Modular bumpers, Engine/Transmission Skid Plate, Gas Tank Skid Plate, Lower Control Arm Skid Plates, Radiator Guard, Straight-Cut Rocker Panel Guards, Mirror Relocation Brackets, Top Prop, Tonno Prop. Jinks has wheeled this Jeep all over the place and has had a lot of fun with it. Watch for him and his pink flamingos. You can’t miss them!
