A person might resell a set of springs, but it is none of my business. I wouldn't want to cut fenders on such a nice body either. You could, dare I say it, run smaller tires? By the way, where did you find the information on the various differential ratios on 73 Wagoneers? My Chilton does not list them. What is the biggest tractor ratio that AMC put in them in 73? I'll be sorting out my three heater hoses this morning and I'll post the results for anyone else who might need it. thanks, Brian

They look fine but they are slightly loose (I can turn some of them) and most of them have busted loose from the body, which is why I need to cut and tack weld

no smaller tires! Haha. Its not enough of an issue at the moment to deal with, I've got to get the gas tank sorted out first, then ill worry about trail performance.

I got the info on IFSJA and I'm pretty sure 3.31's were as deep as they got...as I said, that's the tow package. Stock was 2.73 methinks? Or 2.9something? I dunno haha.

Thanks Marns, I joined that outfit, but forgot about them as an information source. The Pumpkin now has defrost, heat, and a working AM radio. Areciever hitch and floor boards are the next projects. The actuators were just sticky. They work fine now.
I was wrong about BJs having a set of 6" lift springs. They have two different grades of 4" lift springs, one standard ride set and one heavy off road set. Good luck with the body lift.

Gee, this thread got chatty... I vote for the BL whenever Marn has the time and beer to do it.

My Cherokee has a 3" BL, and it looks fine. And no, I'm not a fan of big BLs on most vehicles...

Some of the chattyness is my fault. I should have been asking questions on my own thread. So many smart people follow Marn's thread that I ended up horning in a bit. He has more pictures with pretty girls on his too.

hahahaha, no worries, im happy to answer questions or provide pics of whatever for anybody who needs answers.

took it out again today to go shooting. drove great.

I got a guy to hook me up with a set of NOS tail light lenses for free, im buying a new gauge cluster from another guy, and I got 2 window cranks on the way as well to replace mine (one has no knob and one has a black knob...the other two are fine).

Also, I recently replaced the throttle cable,after getting the correct one sent to me by BJ's

the original one was badly frayed at the carb, and at the gas pedal:


Anyway, heres the right part:

Also just got a decent raise, and my rent went down (added a roommate to our house), so, that should mean more jeep money!

Or more gun money...just bought this the other week:

Well, the guns will hold their value better than the Jeep will. Is that your first .45 ACP/ I have an old 1911A1 military (Remington built actually). It was acurized by my father a long time ago. Is there a manufacturer's name on the blade?

I used to have a springfield 1911A1 a few years ago, just the standard GI style 1911.

I also have a smith and wesson .45acp titanium/scandium airlite revolver that is currently for sale. One of the coolest revolvers i've ever see, but i need to sell it because i bought the new sig 1911.

The blade is actually made by Rock Creek, they are owned by Han-Wei out of china , who make high quality reproduction swords out of their own proprietary high-carbon steel. Trust me, im not proud that its chinese, but its a damn fine blade. T'was a gift from my lady last christmas, she felt the same way about it being chinese, but the quality was way above and beyond the american blades in the same range.

Yeah, my 1911 is the standard issue for the most part. I've got lots of Chinese stuff, who doesn't. It is hard to find good American stuff that a person can afford. This post could lead off into a whole political dissertation that this site is not at all about. Enjoy your good looking knife. Now if I start seeing Iraniian or Pakastane stuff on the store shelves, I'll walk on by, no matter how cheap it is. I wish that I wasn't putting Arabic stuff in my fuel tank.
