You said there is a 5.9 there? Look to see if it still has the metal ac lines the go across the top of the motor. The line with two switches is not made anymore and almost impossible to find. I would grab that for re sale as well along with the efan, relays, and switches. I wish I could find a 5.9 in the yard.

Sorry, what I meant to say was I went looking for a 5.9 and found the 5.2 with the lift instead. Didn't mean to get your hopes up haha. I may check the other yard in town for a 5.9 though and look for all that. Thanks for the heads up

Got the springs today but didn't have time to grab anything else. And that jeep does have adjustable track bars. I'll go back soon to grab the rest.

Any idea how much lift these springs might be?

The rear springs were just the stock front springs.

Front to rear is usually quoted at 3.5 so they are probably 3.5 fronts.

Cool beans, that works for me. Only $26 too. Thanks guys!

I'll be going back hopefully Monday to get those control arms and track bars.

Other local junk yard has all these, fingers crossed that one is a 5.9

This is how it sits now with D windows and 32's


Had a little fun with a buddies AR


Room mate just bought an XJ with a blown motor so we are working on that this week. He has a build thread on here. Hood rich

I would like to get into the drift scene haha. I've got a friend that does it and I may try at an event once the car is ready. It's my 2nd 240. First one was a piece... This is the new one. Nothing too special but it's a work in progress. Btw, I didn't put the side skirts on. Previous owner did and I hate them.

Thanks guys! I'm loving the 240 so far. Snapped this pic of the jeep today though.


After I get a little more done on the 240 I'll finally put those higher springs on my heep.
