Added some ghetto footpegs made from 3/8" bolts. Not bad for being a college kid and only spending a whopping $5 to do it. Might install bicycle pegs on it to make them thicker and more attractive.

Yep. A free one.

Just make your passenger side look like this:


And the drivers side look like this:

Drove it for the first time in two weeks. A fuel injected 4.2 is a little bit quieter than a carbed one. I also bolted up the fuel pump, changed the oil, lower radiator hose and found out that I no longer have a speedometer and my oil pressure gauge pegs when I turn the key on. I'm gonna swap out the sending units from my old engine but I am unsure as what I should so about the speedometer because it has the VSS now.

Yesterday got ready to drop the trans to replace my clutch. The cross member put up a fight, stupid nutserts.
Trans mount was collapsed, good thing I ordered a new poly mount. Torque stud was bent, good thing I bought a new one.

Whose idea was it to but sleeves inside the frame which so easily broke off?...
You know it's bad when you grab a crowbar and could care less what happens to the bolts or cross member, just get the darn thing off!

Is there enough slack in the line behind the frame to just be able to pull it down like that or do I have to extend the line behind the frame?

On the passenger side you just pull it straight down from the top of the frame to the existing hole in the frame for the splash guard. The drivers side is a bit tricky and requires unbolting the caliper and maneuvering it between the shock and frame. It's easier because you save time in the bleeding department.

Yeah I would definitely prefer to not have to bleed them. I think I may attempt this today!

You'll need a pilot hole on the drivers side.

Is it bad to leave it loose or could I just unbolt it and be done?

Looks familiar.

Check out this thread:

The TJ downpipe is a much better design (as far as routing) than the YJ part.

Decided to halt any progress on the YJ, prayed nothing else broke on the YJ till I can buy a decent welder and get cracking. 5 mins later my stereo decides it's time to retire.

Its really more the fact that your frame is rusted there than the sleeve design.

Usually I recommend just cutting off the old nutserts (the are welded to the frame on the outside) and re-welding new nuts/washers to the frame. But I think you need to do a little more metal work with yours.

I think there is a pre-made product that is made for you to cut out that bottom rusted section and replace it with new metal.
