yea I'm still sad at times I had to part with them, but there was simply tooo much rust. Most of the brakets holding the flares on are rusted out so I would have to make new brackets. Also the direction I want to take the jeep the flares just arn't compatible.

if you where mall crawling then the bling flares would work. since you are going to really wheel that thing ,they have to go.

Well I got the entire passenger side of the engine pulled today except for the starter. I also got the fan and water pump pulled as well as the steering box off the frame. I couldn't get the brake lines off and stripped one all the way around....I put some small vise grips on it and it just started stripping the other side. So I'm thinking about just cutting it out...This would mean later on I have to run new lines rite...which I already am going to do steel braded lines down to the calipers...and the rear is getting the 8.8....so really all I would have to do is run new steel lines correct??? How much do you guys think this would cost?

Also when I removed the water pump this is what I found. I put the water pump back on and turned it by hand and didn't hear any grinding....So either it wore enough clearance into the cyliner wall or its unbalanced in some way and at higher speeds is grinding it....What should I do?? I found it pretty surprising though.



Also the steering box came out with ease. THANK GOD. I was praying so hard I wouldn't break a bolt and the bolts came out super super easy I have heard horror stories about removing the steering box. Tomorrow I will remove the starter drive shafts, transfer case, engine, sway bar, shocks, and brake and gas lines..... hopefully sunday grind the frame down and monday Por-15 it

Buy a new one. I just bought one for the XJ 4.0, and it was $25 at Kragen. If your planning to go with a Taurus fan, tell the guys at the auto parts store, you want one for an XJ. The clutch fan isn't attached to the pump, so they're skinnier. I'm not exactly sure that it will fit, but they look the same. You can always take it back and say they gave you the wrong one. Timatoe would be very interested in the results. Here's some pics of the XJ pump.

That typically happens with the waterpump when the bearings start going. Chances are if you grab the pulley on the water pump you can rock it back and forth. Oh and the XJ pump doesn't work, the bolt holes for the brackets are in different spots as the XJ uses a different mounting and bracket setup for all the accesories.

No I havn't done SOA yet have to get the tub finished first then start on the frame work which will be SOA ect....As for the exhaust that sounds cool but would that do offroad? I always wanted to route mine rite in front of the passenger rear tire but since I play in rocks that wouldn't work...I would end up just smashing it up

Last pics reminds me of the ride Humongus drove in Mad Max Road Warrior...haha

Great thread man. My first Jeep was a 92' Base, but I remember the Renegade package very well....because it was the hottest thing on the street back then.

Should make for a killer restore/rebuild.
