so i noticed my tires wearing funny and noticed my TRE's were shot. so instead of going with stock XJ steering, i sprung for the V8 ZJ steering, and while i was at it i ordered the goferit tie rod flip insert





and here it is all installed



and the tie rod filp


(notice the sway bar bracket is gone. the tie rod flip makes the tie rod interfere with the sway bar bracket so it needs to be removed and new brackets need to be made or ordered from JKS)

its amazing how much better it drives with tight steering. next thing is probably the steering box, it leaks and has a lot of slop in it. a have a few small plans for summer but its looking like i wont be able to do the big upgrades i was hoping for. UCSD wont be cheap. so most of my next mods for a while will be little things.


Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

did some wheeling today

















and i had to get a new TRE because the nut provided with my tie rod flip backed off the the tie rod popped out of the knuckle while i was driving about 25-30, very scary stuff. needless to stay i went back to using good 'ol castle nuts.

this was probably long overdue but i replaced my crossmember mount. i have a feeling thats what killed my motor mounts but i just never replaced it. it was in two pieces, just like both of my motor mounts







new vs. old


heres what bed crossmember and motor mounts cause




my crossmember doesnt look so hot either

hey i hear ya. there are lots of days i wish i had a 1999-2001 XJ just to start with something clean and problem free. but without the repairs and mods ive done, i wouldnt know what i do today. one day i hope to keep this as a wheeling rig only and have a newer XJ as a DD.

went to the junkyard and got me a 95 dual diaphragm brake booster and MC, and some nice aftermarket tow hooks. they mount the same as C4x4 brackets but with one more point of attachment.

haha. i was at gordons well dunes and there are little 'tracks' people make for their little 50's and what not so i decided to drive in one. but i didnt have enough momentum and the rear wheels just dug in. the fronts were spinning but couldnt grab anything to pull forward. small tires with 30psi dont do too well in the sand. but i was pulled out by a 2WD ford with 33's
