hard to argue when you buy a new Jeep that has "almost" new Michelin tires on it, but these 245/75r16's are rubbing pretty bad during tight turns. Guess Ill just have to live with it till they wear out becasue I will NOT be cutting any on this jeep

Check out blkdakrt99's instead. He's a vendor on speed freaks. Much cheaper!

I'd suggest the thorleys. The eddy headers have smaller outlets.

Also, I'd consider doing an 8.8 swap over regearing the 44a. Stronger all around and can be had factory with 4.10's and LSD. Throw in an LP30 from a 4 banger TJ and you're set.

Yup. I got the one I put in my YJ for 225 complete with brakes. It had 4.10s and a limited slip. They are good axles.

how do the factory limited slips hold up in the 8.8 over time? is it worth looking into a TrueTrac?

nice 9er by the way, I have the same color one on a front to rear swap with spacers also on a full jks upper and lower short arms with a the 8.8 rear. It used to be my wheeler and now its a daily driver. The 8.8 rear holds up pretty good, it has a heavier spring and carrier pin then the 8.8 mustangs do. if it starts to spin one tire only just throw a clutch pack kit in it. Alot cheaper and faster to install, unless your gonna rock crawl.

Got a little done today. Started by removing the vents. They were pretty bad especially the drivers side


ONce they were off I noticed the hood was a weeeeeee bit dirty


CLeaned them up as best I could with some googone and a little wax


Had picked up some dupli-color last week that looked pretty good



Was a little hesitant of how it would match but I think its basically perfect


Happy with how they turned out




WHile the vents where drying, FedEx showed up earlier than expected and dropped off the new Taurus fan and pigtail


PUlled the fan and got to work taking it apart. The fan itself is only held in with 2 13MM bolts. Then just lift it straight out. After you unhook the wire harness of course.


ONce its out the motor is onoy held in by 3 10MM bolts. Then flip it over and use a flat head screwdriver and a hammer to knock the little retaining plate off


The motor is then free to come out. I had to hit mine a few times gently with a hammer to get it to release


THen from there its just cutting the motor free from the harness and splicing the new one in. Make sure you connect the high speedmwire to the high speed, low speed wire to the low speed and ground to ground. After that just reverse everything.

A/C is now running much cooler. It still not ice cold like I would like it to be buts its a huge improvement. The low speed fan now comes on as soon as the A/C is engaged. She is also running much cooler. Before it would idle around 218 or so. Now its closer to 205


After that I decided to derail the interior. Love the way a super clean jeep looks




NOw off to the car wash to detail the exterior. Just gotta be patient and wait for my new headlights and Bilsteins to show up
