Also I figured something out, when the new upper control arms get put on, my axle will be rotated forward to fix the pinion angle etc, but also so will my steering, which means it will move "up" towards the pitman arm, which will give me the 1/2" of adjustment I need on the draglink sleeve, which will fix my 90* steering wheel.

Going to try to pick this up for parts:

https://www.iaai.com/Vehicles/Vehicl...9&RowNumber=81

Not sure if I'll be able to swing it, but who knows.

HAHA are you serious for parts ... that's nicer than my XJ !!!!!!!

However.. the price is RIGHT .. hopefully no one else bids on it too much. man that would be a sweeeeeet deal.

The funnest part is my jeep had way more damage than that ... lol and they salvaged that thing.. If that was my xj .. I would have just slaped some jcr quarter panels and roll cage and hit it with a hammer till they all fit which is pretty much what im working on now

It's totalled according to PA, and PA salavage and R-Titles are a pain in the *** to get. Plus it's on an auction site. It's maybe a 700 dollar Jeep at that.

Now if I was going to build that as just a crawler, it's worth more like 1500, but luckily I never got into crawling.

I really really want to find a M416 to restore to have for the Jeep. It makes me mad that I can't find any.

yea i know and good luck getting amo

I have shot that weapon a bit, but I don't LOVE it, but its pretty nice if built right. People use it because its mil issued and it' mil issue because of $$$. I'm a sig fan because i like their controls and grip angles, but to each their own. The sig 556 is nice. My xj is nicely equipped with a p229 with a ton of work , that was my first mod.
