MALVERN, Pa. (April 12, 2017) – In this month’s episode of Throttle Out, ExtremeTerrain’s Video Host Ryan Huck goes over his 1998 TJ Wrangler build and upgrades the interior with some new seats. Ryan has owned his TJ since he was 16, modding it up over the years. Once serving as his daily driver, Ryan’s Wrangler got reserved for snowy weather and off-roading after he added a set of BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 35” tires.
Ryan’s 35” tires sit on 15x8 Procomp 1079 wheels that give him excellent sidewall pressure, allowing him to air down when he needs to for increased traction on the trails, without losing a bead. While Ryan has cycled through a few lift kits in his day, he has assembled a mix and match collection of suspension parts to give him a good bit of clearance. Ultimately, Ryan’s rig is all built around his 35” tires and most of his drivetrain and suspension mods are there to support those tall tires.
Ryan uses a set of Rubicon Express 4.5” Coil Springs, that end up providing Ryan’s TJ with a little over 5” of total lift height, giving him incredible clearance and room for articulation/flex with the larger tires. Rock Krawler Arms support Ryan’s Wrangler, allowing him to set the pinon and caster angle on his Jeep, while getting a great amount of articulation and adjustability off-road.
Looking to rejuvenate the look of his interior, Ryan decided to install a set of Corbeau Sport Seats on his TJ. The new seats provide a lot of bolstering while maintaining a stock look. After installing the aftermarket parts, Ryan took his TJ off-road to give them a quick shakedown, saying “Overall, I am really happy with my choice to go with Corbeau seats.”
Ryan has a lot more planned for his ’98 TJ, like a set of 37” tires and some other goodies. Be sure to view the full build of Ryan’s TJ on ExtremeTerrain.com.
