New jeep owner
I purchased a 1993 wrangler and am wondering where to start with resto will use jeep for family drives and some mild offroading. I have installed new shocks and exhaust already these were obvious needs right off the start. It has 2.5l engine runs good drives ok popping noise in rear while turning and over bumps everything seems secure underneath body mounts are dry rotted this was what I have planned to replace next, wanting get mechanics solid first the work on cosmetics, any suggestions appreciated thanks.
Pull the rear diff cover and check into that noise. My d35 lost a bolt out of the ring gear and busted the pinion. That gave me the excuse to go 8.8 though, i recommend the 8.8 very easy swap if you have access to a welder. Plus you get rear disc brakes.
My build thread
Also on the axle disconnect up front, if you have problems with it engaging (the vacuum lines aren't the best) you can unbolt the cover, pull the clip off the fork shaft, slide the fork over to the engaged position, re-install the clip, slide the collar on the axle shaft over to the engaged position and bolt it all back together. Newer d30's came with one piece axle shafts once they realized the disconnect wasn't needed. I do all the free/cheap stuff first. I also recommend a high lift, not only is it a jack but also a winch for a lot less money, Google it, they can do anything.
