So far we've been over fuel injection, strokers, rear main seals, oil pump replacement and a few other things here and there. Give me some ideas and what you would like to know more about, I will be replacing my windshield gasket soon, will do a write up on that. Now that the motor is done, I will be starting on armor, such a fenders, front bumper, sliders, and a few other things... then I will head to full ton axles, 4.56 gears with lockers, and disc brakes...
Speaking of disc brakes, SSBC (Stainless Steel Brake Corporation) makes a kit for disc brake conversion for Jeeps. I came across a cherokee in a junkyard about 5 months ago that had an SSBC kit on it, needless to say there on my wrangler now. The kit is pricey but there are ways around it... some grand cherokee's came with disc brakes and the ford crown victoria brakes will work to. The Install for me was pretty straight forward, had to take the axle shafts out, then remove the backing plate for the drums, install the new backing plate for the disc brakes, bolt on the bracket for the caliper and rotor, brake lines hooked right up, put the tires on, bleed them, and now I love them... more stopping power, no more brake shoes, or all the brake parts to deal with when changing brakes, and it gave me another excuse to put on the ARB diff covers I found at the Junkyard too. Another good thing about the SSBC kit, it will fit Dana 35, Chrysler 8.25, and Dana 44 without any modifications.
I also had a Vanco Brake Setup for the front, but sold it. Vanco replaces the entire knuckle assembly for the front, gives you a new double piston caliber for the front, and 16in drilled, vented, and very big rotors, they worked great, just didn't need them on the lightweight wrangler, so I sold the kit for $500... they were extremely happy.
