I get a timeout on my phone all the time. And something about a phase error when I try to go to the sd thread.

I'll keep you in line.

Anyways, headed out to check this little guy out...


Asking a bit much, and it's only a 2.5, but it's supposedly clean, rust free, and only has 87k on the clock. I'm not as concerned about getting a 4.0 now since a 5.2 swap could literally happen before any other mods this time around...and 4.10 stock gearing is pretty sweet. Especially because I just sourced another 8.8, 4.10, LSD. With a 5.2 that thing would scream on 35s...

Wish meh luck!

Cheers

Looks like a clean YJ. Try to talk em down!

Youre planning on a 5.2 now!?

Vortec > Magnum

Try to get an 8.8 with an open carrier so we can trade. I want to throw a Spartan in mine.

If it would't cost out the ying yang to ship, I would sent you my open carrier for the 8.8!

My girlfriend's cousin lives in Washington. Next time he heads down here ill see if he can pick it up first

What do you think it would cost to ship? shouldnt even need to box it, just slap a sticker on it!

Just drove it.
It's THE cleanest YJ I've personally ever seen. Almost completely rust free, perfect paint, interior is immaculate, completely stock except an aftermarket cd deck...

Gonna see about getting a loan for it tomorrow. I got him to wiggle down on the price quite a bit too. It's a tad more than I was looking to spend on a YJ, but it's a perfect platform...

And ya, thinking about a 5.2 now. I know a vortec would be a better motor, but I have a buddy that would give me a complete 5.2 with harness for $150...can't pass up that deal! He also has an ax15 to mate it to for another $150. So for $300 I could have the motor and trans waiting in the wings.

He put the 5.2 in his Jeep, and total cost for him was under $700, including mounts, exhaust, wiring, etc...Too good of a deal to pass up and still plenty of power for 35s/37s...

I'll check around for an open 8.8 too if you really want. You're unhappy with the LSD? Did you rebuild the clutch? I found that it hooked up awesome when wheeling myself...

Cheers

Thanks! Me too. First time I've been jeepless in 10 years. Feels super weird...
I'm starting to feel less sting/heartache/agony about loosing my last YJ, and beginning to be more excited about starting fresh.

Cheers

Awesome man!! Hopefully it works out. You'll have a nice, solid platform to build on.
