dont have the money right now. plus i dont care for the IRO LAs. might have an ace up my sleeve though.. crunching numbers right now, may be able to get some clayton rear arms in the near future? gotta look more into my finances. this is all assuming i can sell all my rear control arms, jks trackbar, and addco sway bar for what i think i could get from them.

troy flaked! (not really) but some complications came up, so thats probably out the window. might have him help me a little with the front arms however.




Somebody slap me. i will be calling kor and claytons tomorrow to see what i can get clayton rear long arms for and compare that price to what it would cost to build/buy the parts and do it on my own. it would probably be easier just to buy the full kit.

i priced out what all i would need for rear long arms to make and to buy some parts. price came to $1025. that included buying all the clayton brackets, making the arms, buying the joints and tube inserts, welding, and shipping

to give you an idea:



link to an article lol
Athens MidDay: Featured Stories & Blogs: Annual Street Party Tamer Than Years Past

needless to say its gonna be awesome
so we went. and had LOADS of fun.

couple pics




the street is about half a mile long, and no joke the entire street was packed with atleast 10000 people.

going again next year definitely

edit: just found this video. I was like right next to this dude to the right. I remember seeing him and talking to him for a minute or so.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aB0VkMyC7L0

^if you watch the end, that cop was going off on people. he came and punched a kid that was like 5 feet away from me. stuff is crazy

anyways, on the topic of my jeep. gotta weight my options here and decide on a few things

i have and/or will have potenially enough to buy rear long arms or buy some parts for this 5.9 engine ill be buying this summer (assuming the guy doesnt back out). engine needs rebuilt. and figured i may add a few things to it.

extra goodies would be, 1.7 roller rockers, cam, TB, maybe an m1. not sure if ill do that or just my ported keggar.

what do you guys think?

If you plan to build an engine, you better start buying parts now. Youve hardly driven your jeep on short arms. Learn to wheel how it is before going long arms. Put the money towards the engine. Engine stuff isnt cheap.Research it a little more too. 1.7 RRs are point less if you are doing a cam too. Get a cam with the lift you want, no need to get extra lift from rr's. 1.6 RRs will do you fine.

maybe if you weren't always out gettin drunk (like me) you'd have your jeep done. At this point, you and I are racing. I need to swap 2 axles into my jeep by 7fest in 2 weeks. I'm planning on new ball joints, bearing, bushings, shocks, ,TRE's, etc. Listen for angle grinders and electric impacts on woodruff this month.

1. I never said he cant wheel. I told him to better learn on his short arms 2. The fact that I dont wheel my 5.9 is no indication of my wheeling past. 3. WHen are you going to start adding to this forum? You've been here for a while now and Ive yet to see a single post from you that in any way contributes to the forum.

Every post contributes to a forum, otherwise there would be no forum.

i like how dude slaps him instead of punches. thats the best part lmao. oh and the fact that the other dude fell out of the chair is pretty funny




im leaning towards the engine right now.
idea is:

-KRC 210x cam
-throttle body (cant remember off the top of my head which brand is the best)
-1.6:1 Harland Sharp rockers
-headers at some point
-ported kegger (maybe m1 down the road)
-ported stock heads (maybe some aftermarket heads down the road
-prolly need a walbro fuel pump at some point too
