You're a much better welder than I. Trust me. I can stick metal together but it's not pretty.

At least you have a similar Jeep to go with model wise. My friend has a '94 but his trans went on him. Now he and my other friend drive cherocars. Haha.

I have a basket but no hitch. We have a little trailer, like 3x4 that would be pretty cool to use.


Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

cherocars haha..

I'm sure you can find a hitch at a junk yard for dirt cheap then modify to fit on your jeep. Gives you an excuse to weld

I've been really considering building a small trailer, but that won't be till after regear. Not doing that to my auto trans with 33s and trailer on 3.55s
I'm sure with 4.10s it wouldn't be a problem.

When you're ready to buy springs, let me know and I'll get you a deal at wholesale. How far are you from San Diego? Lets go wheeling sometime

You need to hang out in your local wheeling neighborhood section of JF and meet some people. Other than ZER030 and his JKU (whom has been my friend for almost 10 years and just recently got into Jeeps) I met the rest of my group through JF. After a few months of nearly weekly wheeling, we are.all pretty tight friends now. Although I am the only YJ....

Just a thought!

Now get those pics!!!!

Cheers

I sure do, met a few guys through here and went wheeling with a couple. Met Joe Dillard as well, nice guy and one hell of a Jeep, thing's a monster!

I do however need to meet more people closer to my age group that have a little time on their hands to wrench and go wheel on regular basis.

Pics soon!!!

7/31 update:

This past weekend didn't exactly work out as planned, but for what it's worth, here's a few pics..
Friend Peter been asking me to try out the welder. We got together to get our AR-15 rifles cleaned and come up with an ammo can lid prop.

My rigged up welding table setup in 5 min


Peter coming up with ideas, meanwhile I found OE shackles laying around and decided to use as a prop:


Welding with house sandals on


Shackles prop welded:


Prop stopper welded:


Got the fiberglass blanket over his feet, he learned quick!


Welding the hinge:


Works like a charm:





Still gotta primer and paint, add cup holders and some sort of feet to offset the floor in the Jeep.

Sunday GF and I went to a free concert and were suppose to break in her 9mm right after. I ended up forgetting ear protection at which point was too late to go back. We rescheduled the trip for later, so no offroad pics till hopefully this weekend..

I did snap a few boring pics at the concert parking lot along with one at a local school:


KM2s:


Some phone cam at night:

Haha, thanks guys, I shall post real pics asap!!

Good deal came up just now, 4.0 complete engine, harness, computer from 1992 XJ for $600. I'm going to jump on it this weekend and convert my 4.2 to 4.0 FI, can't pass smog with my MC2150 here in Cali.

Already got a truck lined up for Saturday morning. What else should I grab from the XJ while I'm there? I gotta do quick homework on what's all needed for a swap, but if anyone got a list handy, I could use some ideas

I've decided against the 4.0 swap. Spend a few hours researching and looks like I'll need quite a few things to get it in there with my auto trans. Also the engine has too many miles and most likely needs a rebuild. Came out of a border patrol Jeep.

Here's a new update and goal list for the build:

Keeping the 4.2, need to refresh and make smog legal

If finances allow:

- Order Howell TBi
- Rebuild bottom end
- Possibly order Clearwater 4.0 head if mine leaks and has poor compression
- Clifford performance intake manifold, exhaust header, cam
- New Cat

On the budget:

- Order Howell TBi
- Master rebuild kit for the 4.2
- New cat



Meanwhile I'm looking for a dana 30 with 4.11s, people lost their minds down here lately, asking $500-600 at the junk yards.

Anyone got a D30 for sale or know how to regear? I got a quote of $550 to regear my existing one, new bearings and all..
Not willing to spend near that considering guys here get D30s for $200 or less all day long.
