Installed Adjustable Front Upper control arms and welded up a new track bar bracket. Cant wait for my adjustable track bar to be delivered to finish up the front suspension.

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Considering an ax15 swap. Would it bolt up to the motor and trans mounts in my 96? And what year model jeeps did they come in?

Lined the roof to get rid of some nasty rust spots and added some protection.

You'll need an AX-15 & bellhousing with the external slave cylinder from a wrangler or cherokee that had the 4.0L. I know the 95 wrangler had it, not sure about the 94 or 93. The cherokees had them from I believe 98-01. You can go online & buy the clutch master cylinder for a ZJ, rockauto has them, or you can order one from Advanced, Autozone, or w/e parts store you have near you. You'll also need a manual trans mount from a ZJ (can get that thru parts store also). I don't believe your stock crossmember will work, but I could be mistaken. The shifter from a cherokee will work, I believe some had to do minor modification to get it perfect. The NSS needs to be grounded out so the vehicle will start. The biggest part of the swap is the pedals & the transfercase linkage. Cherokee pedals will work, but def need to be modified to fit. Lastly are the driveshafts... I believe the front needs to be shortened, & the rear needs to be lengthened.

After a visit to a radiologist this morning for a free x-ray, I learned that my finger isn't broke. I just smashed the crap out of it yesterday while changing my oil. I was attempting to loosen the drain plug and it finally broke free. Upon breaking free, I managed to smash my pinky on my left hand between the ratchet and the front diff. I attempted to keep changing the oil on it but had to get out from underneath it. I went inside and put it on some ice and literally watched it swell up. Now my finger nail is a funny shade of green-blue and my finger is twice as fat as it should be. Please, someone tell me they've done something like that too so I don't feel like I'm the only one who's ever injured himself doing an oil change. I had todd4198 come over and finish up. He just had to change the filter then refill the oil.

The first time I put a lift on over ten years ago I used the wrong type of coil compressor and gave myself 5 stitches when the compressor slipped off.
