Boy oh boy, I wish I had found jeepforum.com three years ago!!
Many of my questions would have been answered if I had...
Here is my 87 YJ that started with an AMC 258 Peeyu-got-to-go 5 spd and np207 (with 260,000 on it when taken out)- now with a 1970 LT1 350, TPI'ed, Megasquirted, 700R4, NP242'ed (now), TrueTracked and TracLocked 30 and 35 going together my way:
Tada!! This thing really rips and is great off road now, too. The 2.5 inch lift was too stiff at first but it is actually smoothing out yet not sagging.
Anyone done a seat swap. I've got the forum link... What of those GM seats are most comfy/strong?
Now its cold out I'm also thinking about putting carpets back in. What's the cheapest way?
