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

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

It helps, but if one tire is spinning and the other isn't its not good enough

I thought about adding to the clutch pack but then it would still be a LSD

Best off with a full locker. I tried a truetrac in my 8.8 and it was useless on the rocks.

Mine helps a little, but you're right.

It should say: " your limited slip is just an open diff that has been lying to you."

You're new nickname should be "signature machine". Or SigMac for short.
