I'm wondering if this thread could be made a sticky and have a mod clean out all the non-helpful posts, much like this post and then it's always there for reference....??????

Most recent find.

$2 truck loading dock bumper instead of a $35 winch saver.

A stock XJ pitman arm is the same as a drpo pitman arm for a wrangler also.

Did you have to do a lot of reinforcement on the corner when you mounted the carrier so it wouldn't rip out or collapse the corner where it is mounted?

With so many people having issues with the oem gas tank in regards to the fuel float/gauge, has anyone found a nice solution for this other than taking the plastic cup out? (I'd hate to not be able to get fuel if I'm on an incline.)

Is there a better sending unit I can use that is less likely to screw up? Different tank altogether perhaps?

dodge used holley carbs on their v8s in the 60s, 70s, and 80s that are the proper bolt pattern for out 4.2 intakes. the cars had them and in the 80s, the pick ups had them. they also used a rochester but the pattern is larger so make sure you get the holley two barrel and its a bolt on swap for the crappy electric carb that came factory for us.

the pic is of one from a 1973 coronet that i have for my 87

This is the bad part of a small town.... SMALL-ER Junkyard (1) With outrageous prices and no Jeeps or other useful piecse, a swing away tire carrier is about $120 to your $50 and I have yet to see a newerish jeep in the Junk Yard at Bandon
Any thoughts on small town junkies??
Anything I can do with about 12 old Acclaims with half the stuff (if not more) ripped out??

My junk yard mods for my YJ.

CJ-7 swing out tire carrier $40 with YJ hood hinges $10 so the tailgait swings out like a YJ tailgate with new hardware and paint for a total $80

Two horns. My orgnial, second YJ stock horn free, wire harness to fit $3

Jeep logo that I glued to dash under the fuel gauge that came off a J10 pick up $3.

Out of a full size diamond plate tool box lid for $10 I made:
2 of each to replace the stock rubber peddals: e-brake, clutch, brake, gas
2 light brackets
1 set of rocker pannels
I should be able to scrap the leftovers and break even

Two dome lights that came out of two Toyota 4Runner to fit the light brackets $5 each both colors match the interiors

Floor board light, passanger side $2

YJ drivers side seat belt $20

Rear seat brackets that mount to the fender wall free

I would like to find a winch for cheap next.
I would post picks but not up to 25 posts.
