Project off road! 1 day project!

Gonna see if I can get this swap done on saturday so this thread will be updated this weeked.....Swapping everything to my super clean 1990 Laredo from the POS 89 Pinoeer. The pioneer is lifted 3.5in spring lift on 31's and locked, had quick discos, control arms, track bar, t-case drop. Swapping the drive train and suspension to the 90 which is bone stock with a blown motor.
All said and done Ill have a lifted locked xj on 31's for around $1000

Project

Your Laredo is awesome. To be honest if I had it I would leave it stock for how clean it is. But It's still gonna look great lifted too. Good luck with doing all that in a day. Better wake up real early and expect to be up all night.

I hope you have 2 lifts, a full shop and overhead cranes if you want to do all that in one day.

And some good friends to help.

But have fun!

I had planned on doing that. I was looking for a motor for it because this one went all out and blew a head gasket, and spun a bearing at the same time when I stumbeled accross this, again couldnt pass it up. The Laredo is retarted clean, only alittle cancer in the pass rocker which I wil be fixing.

I honestly doubt that Ill ge that far Id be happy with gettin the pioneer stripped and off to the yard. That is my main goal for tomorrow....Dad is getting pissed about all my cars sitting around we have 6......4 of them are mine.....
