^^ Perfect!

It's tough at first, they later you ask yourself why you waited so long.
Hmmmm that's a great idea. Since I'll eventually TT it, I'll need the MML anyways. I can justify that one. I'll look into it.
And thanks. The next month or two is going to suck major bawls, but I'm hoping if I fill them up with enough Jeep/Friends/Activities/Beer that it'll pass quickly and relatively painlessly. I see LOTS of weekend wheeling trips in my near future....

No vibes with the t-case drop. It's still about 1* low I think (haven't actually measured the angle) but it works great with the t-case drop. I think the OME springs came with 2.5* shims, so 4* sounds right. I'll measure the angle one day soon and figure that out.

The Brown Dog mounts are really well built.
I spent the extra couple bux and got the ones with the rubber grommets instead of polyurethane. No engine vibration at all. I don't know if the other ones do have engine vibration, but my logic told me rubber was more absorbent to vibration. My two cents.....

Will do. Too bad you didn't live close lol. I would totally buy your 8.8 and take advantage of your fab skills!

Cheers

Are the MML your talking about just the 1" spacers? I already have Brown Dog motor mounts, but I haven't inspected them that closely (they were used for my 2.5 to 4.0 motor swap.) I wonder if they are adjustable?

Cheers

Found an 8.8!
Called around to a bunch of yards today, and the one that I've had great luck with, just got in a 96 explorer with 4.10s. They want $250 for it, but it's a "they pull it" yard so that's not a bad price. My local PP yard wants $190.00 so I figure 60 bucks to save myself a few hours of work ain't half bad! They said they can have it pulled and ready for me by Monday/Tuesday. It's about freaking time!

Cheers

No they are a motor mount that is one inch higher than stock. There is a company that makes a spacer, but I just didn't trust it.

Nice!

$250 is a good price.

Sick. I really like the look of that. The black grill and the red cage makes it look mean as hell!

Butthole. I wish prices were that low around here.
Wow that's way off! I think mine is way off now too. It was already about 5mph off at 60mph with my bald 33s (they only measured 31" when I yanked them) and now with the 35s, going 55 on the freeway, I'm passing people. I should check it with gps at some point.

Cheers

Got rid of all of this...not sure what it all does, but it sure doesn't effect anything running. Replaced my oil pressure sensor...gauge is still pegged to the right. Need a new gauge. Getting ready to start nutter bypass...anybody got any advice in how not to do it, how to do it, what to take off and what to not?
