u really don't need the front or rear track bars on a yj, they help keep the front and rear axle from moving side to side and they limit the flex in the suspension, the leaf springs take care of that, i don't have the front sway bar on rite now, but that will be going back on later, if it was a coil spring set up like the tj's or the Cherokee's then u would have to keep them for sure

its a rusty one

Reminds me of mine, except yours is going together while mine sits in the shop!! Did you do any internal frame coating like an Eastwood product or did you just leave it alone?

i just left it alone for now, i cleaned it out as best as i could when i was repairing it, we have some stuff at work i was gonna spray in it when i finally get it too work once its running again, mine has been a very slow project, i had the body off last winter and i don't think i even started doing the floors until 4-5 months ago and even now its just one day here or there, but every time i work on it a little more gets done

Man.....and here I thought my YJ needed a lot of rust repair! You're doing a great job breathing new life into that old girl.
About your question regarding clocking the 231 to the 727, I just slid the 231 onto the 727 on the first try, and the clocking seems to be just fine for me.

My buddy told me a long time ago that his idea was to weld shut every opening on the frame and fill it with oil. Always thought that was an interesting idea.

What do you got going on here? Built in rock rails? Interesting. I didn't think of that on mine, but it's not too late...

There was a thread going about coating the interior of the frame with linseed oil.

Not going to bother looking that up, so this may be in that thread, but my buddies idea was to plug every hole and fill it half way. Then as you are driving around it is continually moving around coating the frame. Not to just coat it with oil. Guys do that all the time.

its hard finding anything rust free up here this old, i knew it needed work when i got it so it was no surprise there, i just wasn't sure about the clocking, i slid mine onto the transmission and it looked like the drive shaft might be a bit close to the transmission, but it was just sitting on the bench when i did it, so im sure when its in the jeep it will look fine
