This is Pam’s new trail rig. It’s a 1989 YJ that she picked up for a song. We built it up in a less than a month so she could play in Tellico during our 2002 trip. We fixed it’s electrical and carb problems basically making it reliable enough to run. We then added 4.10 gears with a Lock-Rite up front in the original D30 and a Ford 8.8 in the rear out of a 2002 Ranger truck. We had to put a short shaft kit in the t-case and a new Tom Wood’s Custom driveshaft to get everything to work right. We installed a set of TJ flares and a 1″ body lift and then mounted a set of 33×12.50 BFG MT’s on it. It’s a great trail rig and it gets its name from the fact that it’s also being built to resemble her CJ7 Golden Eagle….but is it really just fool’s gold?
