im not even sure what it cost to have the d shafts cut/lengthened, i sent them out thru my work and havent got a bill yet. for the front shaft i used the chevy rear half and the shop slid the front jeep section onto the chevy section. i did this for a couple reasons. 1 i didnt want to have to change the yoke for bigger u joint on the dana 30 because in the future a 44 is going in. 2 the chevy shaft is about 1 1/2 times bigger around than the jeep one. 3 the rear of the shaft is a 1330 joint and didnt want to buy a new u joint or flange to bolt to t case.

Exhaust routing fyi:
My 89 yj has block huggers with true dual exhaust and it works well. Should do the same for yours. I like the way the guages turn so u can see them better, the dash pods look nice.

My 91 has Hedman Hedders with 2 1/2" collectors, 2 1/2" pipe series 44 flowmasters and exit just in front of the rear shackles. True dual the whole way and tucked up nicelay inside the frame. Should be pretty easy for you, doesn't interfere with anything.

ok i got my oil filter put on finally(i know big job) i finished up the fuel lines and got all the vacuum lines routed. i got this nice heat covering for the fuel lines, it should keep them protected. im getting closer one step at a time tomorrow night i am going to start putting the wiring harness on.

As I found out you have to heat shield the exhaust to not over heat the tranmission. I run duels and they are awesome

ok got some more done tonight. i tore the pita glove box out yet again!! and put the ecm in there. its a nice hiding spot for it. also got the plug wires on with the heat boots. i hope the headers dont melt the wires. also cleaned up some wires that were attached to the battery with a power bus.

well im not a very happy camper at the moment.. i hooked up some more wires this morning that are necessary to run the engine. my plan was to start it for a few sec. just to here her run!!! i hooked the battery up and didnt small any burning wires so i was happy about that, turned my radio on and it worked, turned the lights on and they worked. i thought things were going good so i turned the key to the run position and instantly smelt gas! i looked out at the throttle body and it was soaked. so i blew it off with the air gun and this time watched when i turned the key. to my surprise gas was literally flowing out of the entire throttle body!! : i was fuming. so i tore the tbi unit apart on the bench. ( side note when i bought the engine the guy said he just rebuilt the tb, what a lieing POS!!!) this is what the gasket looked like when i tore it apart, the black is the gasket... guess my next step is to rebuild the tb.

I never trust what other people say unless they can prove it. Sorry to hear about your misfortune, but at least its. Pretty cheap fix, not an entire engine or a bad trans.
