Got a lot done on the POS.

Pulled and swapped the Radiator and AC condenser, ditched the factory transmission cooler for a larger one and re-plumbed the lines, and got a power steering cooler mounted up.

everything out... I'm kinda kicking myself for not doing a water-pump and thermostat while i had it open.


everything new


I had to do a little "custom" plumbing on the steering cooler return. the pump has a -6 return welded in, and the cooler I had is -8. so I used a -8 pushlock fitting with a -6 adapter. I ordered the wrong adapter, so I couldn't use my -6 pushlock fitting, so instead I used a peice of 3/8" transmission tube I had cut off the transmission feed to the rad and a 3/8" tube to -6AN adapter fitting and flared the end of the tubing to get a good seal. I've got the -6 male-male adapter now, so if it leaks I can put a real push lock fitting, but I don't see that happening.



and all of that leads up to this: 35" MTRKs




also picked up this little toy: 8.8, 4.56, ARB, Super88 kit.

I dig the stance, but I thought you was going taller?

I will. the front will probably get another 1 to 2 inches to sit more level with the rear.

the plan is a set of ACOS. I don't want different springs.

then I'll re-do my shock mounts and possibly 3 link it. depends on how much time and money I have.

it will need a ****load of sheet metal work to tuck the 35"s like the 33"s did.

yup
What springs do you have that you like so well? As far as 35's on your current height, it's not as much sheet metal work as you think

I run currie 4" TJ springs...

As far as uptravel, I run 12" shocks with 7" of uptravel.

At my height that puts the 35" just under the hood.

I must ask, how in the hell are you making 12" shocks work with 4" springs and getting that much up travel? Yesterday I swapped my 3" coils for some 4-4.5" coils to level my XJ out and I still can't get more than about 4" of up travel with 10's! That's with 35's. My lower mounts are moved slightly, but not much.

currie coils have ~11" of travel. I am maxing them out.

go back a few pages, my shock mounts have been moved down a bit and I run short body shocks.


more recently, blew a hub on my first shakedown run. considering getting some CTM drive flanges
