Donny Crawford’s 1988 Jeep Wrangler

Posted by Brad Barnes on 1/19/2016 to Barnes Projects
His rig may have originated in the 80s, but this beast is in fantastic working order. Take a look at Donny’s upgraded 1988 Wrangler in action:

Donny’s Custom Off-Road Parts

Donny has added quite a few custom Barnes 4wd parts to his rig. To upgrade his suspension, he fabricated a double triangulated 4 link in the rear and a universal 3 link in the front; both with Barnes tubes and bolts. To redo his steering (crossover steering), Donny added upgraded steering components. Then, to make a new transmission crossmember, he used Barnes bushings and sleeves.

The Results

According to Donny, the results of these upgrades have improved his rig’s overall performance: “I changed my Jeep’s suspension from leaf springs to links and coilovers. It rides and articulates so good now. It's a totally different world. It performed well with leafs, but it performs even better now!

I had to switch to 3 link front after almost knocking the front leaf spring hangers off the frame at Gulches
