So I've spent the last week doing some much unexpected bartering.
I've been speaking with Imped several times over the last few years about doing a few transfer case upgrades. Last week I finally got him to bend to my will
and decided to do the same upgrades I tackled on the transfer case I built to go in my MJ(http://www.naxja.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1095725
). After some talking I decided to offer him my transfer case, in exchange for his transfer case, with SYE, and the Tera 2LO he has waiting to go in his case, and use this as a way to finally pay for the Metalcloak Duroflex joints for my control arms that I'm buying off of him.
Fast forward to today. I've been helping my buddy Martin build his Jeep, and his next phase includes an SYE and front locker. After a lot of talking he decided to do a 2LO kit the same time as the SYE. Since I don't need the 2LO in the XJ, and he's tight on money right now, he's going to get Impeds t-case w/SYE, t in exchange for his transfer case, a new SYE, and he's going to buy me the Poly Performance long arm brackets in exchange for the 2LO I'm getting from Connor(I don't need it, plans have changed) and a 6 pinion planetary gear I have a lead on, installed.
So, aside from a little bit of labor:
rebuilt NP231, wide chain, 2LO, 6 pinion planetary, without SYE
another 6 pinion planetary set
Low-ish mileage 231
new JB Conversions SYE
6 Metalcloak Duroflex joints
Poly Performance long arm brackets
Not bad if you ask me
