Scored this for $50. I have no idea if I'm gonna flip it or find something with a passenger side drop and actual HUBS & SPINDLES.

Just nuttered it too plus some awesome looking seat covers and Smittybilt center console. So many things I want to do. The front stubby bumper turned out awesome too. Next is the rear bumper and swing out.




That is 1 clean 89 nice job & welcome to the family

Just finished up replacing my exhaust manifold. This was half way through. People make it out to be harder than it really is. Took me the better part of 3 hours. I got held up by an older man cruising by in an 06' Rubicon Unlimited which is my dream Jeep. He came over and started talking to me for about a half hour. Funny thing doing this in an apartment parking lot, people stare at you like you are the poorest scum of the earth when you work on your own car. But it's all said and done. I never knew a 4.0 could be so damn quiet.

Purchased our first Jeep a week ago. After one hour of playing she wouldnt idle. Choke linkage fell off. SO...today re-attached the linkage, Lil' Darlin was so proud of her man for getting her Jeep running. Started and ran 10 whole seconds. Now have a massive direct short to ground to play with! Here We Go!

You bashed your shackle into something at faster than crawling speed.

Yes, it happens.

Yes. I did this 3 weeks ago at RAusch too. I replaced those springs with Rubicon express military wrapped springs. Btw, my club (element offroad) was at rausch all day today. We're also gonna be there tomorrow (i'll be there too).

^^This.

A decent set of springs with mil-wrap will help prevent this.

A decent set of boomerang shackles will ensure you can get it off without losing a finger.
