Like i said yesterday I was pretty bored and wanted to work on the Jeep so I headed down to the pick and pull with my dad. They had free entrance today which saved me $2. When I finally found the jeeps that they moved there was a pretty good collection. probably 10 older cherokees and plenty of grands. Only 2 XJs that were 97+ and one was a two door so I didn't have a ton of selection. I needed the passenger front seat belt as mine was no longer staying latched. I picked up a valve cover, 99+ intake manifold and throttle body for my brothers 98, brand new looking gauge cluster, trailer lights wiring harness since I forgot to buy one when I got the hitch, picked up a fuel rail with 5 injectors since my rail is super rusty. I got all of this without using tools since someone had just left them lying around. I have no use for the injectors and I actually have a whole extra set from my dads jeep since I gave him my lower milage ones when i upgraded.
I was too lazy to go back to get my tools to get a spare front drive shaft and the seatbelt that I needed. I helped two guys find parts for their jeeps which was fun. I made out with all of that for about $75 and no work. I found a D44 in the rear of and old mail jeep think it was a CJ, but I had no use for it. There was also a hitch and OEM gas tank skid that I didn't bother with since I already had both.
So I want to know what you think. I want to paint the valve cover and I am leaning towards red since I have a few other things painted red already. Do you think it would look out of place in my engine bay?
I really need to stop spending money so I can save up for some rock rails!
I love the look of the AJ Super Rails
, but I think I will be buying from RigidCo
since they are local to me and have great clearance. Better pictures of the Rigid Co sliders can be found HERE
. From what I have read he is willing to do some custom work so I will be getting a quote for adding the extra tube work to the sliders.
I have been drooling over the JCR bumpers, but RigidCo makes some damn good looking bumpers as well. I really like THIS version
. I cannot decide between the winch bumper or getting the winch add on later. I am leaning towards the winch ready bumper though.
I would appreciate some feed back on my plans. If anyone has any reviews of these products or other options I would like to hear them.
