k so i finally got my xj running right. my dad had this xj and the throw out bearing went out in it, well he had trouble pulling the tranny and gave up on it. i offered him 400 bucks and made it mine. few days later me and a buddy towed it to our place to work on it. cause of work he havnt had much time. well yesterday i pulled the tranny replaced the throwout bearing, and went ahead and replaced the clutch. 5 hours later from start i had everything back together and ready to fire her up. well she diddnt fire. turned over and over but no fire. checked the fuel pressure its all there, so its 9 at night and im tired of working on this thing so i head in the house. this morning i went out in the shop and noticed i diddnt bolt the crank position sensor back to the bellhousing. bolted it back up and she purrrrrred.
so this is my xj
92 4.0 h/o 5 speed, 2wd
future plans are:
fab roof rack, and bumpers
4" lift on 33's
update: not anything special but my muffler was rusted to nothing so i cut it off and went and got a flowmaster super 44, ran the pipe out the back and welded a 4 inch chrome tip at the end. can barely hear it in the cab and outside it has a nice rumble. very happy with it
guess i might be getting my jcr DIY bumper sooner than i anticipated. left to go hunting tonight and my buddys gf parked her jetta behind my jeep. no back up lights led to my bumper on top of her hood. crinkled it up real nice bumper got a lil dent in it but nothing serious except an excuse to upgrade. ill get pics in the morning
i payed $110 a peice for them at my local tire shop. i think they look better than the cragers because they have more depth.
on another note, today ive dropped the transmission for the 3rd time since owning the jeep. something came loose inside of it and im tired of dropping it so i went and bought another transmission from the junkyard to hold me down until i can get all the stuff to finish the 4wd coversion
