My project *I'M 4WD!*

Ok, so I thought that instead of cluttering this place with 300 threads about what I'm doing to my jeep...I thought I'd consolidate them kinda.

As for the lift parts....
v8 UC ZJ coils for the rear

With .75 inch spacers

and 4.5" RE front coils

And JKS front and rear Trackbars

All this to clear 32" MT/R's on 15x8x4bs Cragar Soft 8's


Waiting for the last couple parts to arrive so I can install the lift and tires starting this coming saturday night and finishing up memorial day monday.


COST
So here's a tally of the cost

AW4 (with torque converter and flexplate) - $150
231 out of a late 90's xj - $85
HP30 - $100 ($50 more for new balljoints)
Rear driveshaft - $70
Front driveshaft - $27
Dustshield - $50
tranny mount - ~$30
crossmember - $?
bellhousing bolts (2x grade 8 7/16x4.5) - $7
Torque converter bolts (M10x1.5x14) - $20
Fluids/filter for Tranny and TC - $70
Misc brackets - $30
Having to redo this project.....priceless.

You're right. For streets and ATs yes, MTs no. Wait, I'm wrong...those MTRs are ATs, Charlie...those look great.

MTRs are fine. Just don't call them MTs.

Notice the MT tread pattern.

Charlie, when you get the springs installed let me know what you think of the ride of them. So before you do the mods find a nice rough street and drive down it at a set speed. Take a mental note of the speed and ride quality and then once you are lifted do the same thing and let us know what you think.

Will do that for sure. I can't wait to do this!!

And with the white lettering, I was going to have the mount them black side out, but I forgot to tell them because I was in such a rush. Oh well.
