got the driveshaft shortened and put in today. If anyone is in vegas and needs a driveline shop, Adams Driveline in Henderson. They did an awesome job. even painted it and had it done within a matter of a couple hours. not like anyone hasnt seen a driveshaft before but im just pic happy. The rest of the parts for my brake lines should be in tomorrow and she should be good to go until next weeks TC swap



I found a couple TCs im going to check out tomorrow for my swap. Im sure ill end up getting one if they appear to be in good shape. Ill keep yall informed.

I like that color, I think you need some window tint though.

Picked up a 242 out of a 91 xj today. Hopefully the gear cut is the same and it would b amazing if they have the same size input shaft. I'll clean t up later an snap some pics.

It would be way to easy if the input shaft was the same.
