so If I really clean up this jeep, and fix the vibes/ leaky pinon do you guys think I could get 7k for this jeep?

I bought it for 6k, have put alot of money in (which I know I won't get out), what do you guys think?

or do you think I could bring it back to stock and get like 4500- 5 grand?

well I dont reeeeeallly wanna sell it, but I have the oppurtunity to buy a 94 xj thats semi built for 400 bucks, so that would kinda become another project, and with college commuting coming up it may not be that bad of an idea to have some money.


but I dont wanna sell it, its more of a "If I need the money" do you think I could get that much.


btw I pick up my adj. rear uppers this sunday if anyone is interested.

Ordered front and rear solid diff covers last night.

I went to the local shop that was gonna build my adjustable uppers, and I wasn't really impressed with the quality of there work, especially there welds, and while they havent had a single issue, I can lay a better bead then some of the welds they had at their shop, especially now that I have gas with my mig.

SO I decided to look at my other options, and being at their shop kind of inspired me.

Im gonna 4 link my rear! Im going to essentially copy the design of these builds: mid arm build

tommyr's long arm build

geauxturbo's long arm build


Im only doing the rear and I wanna stick to shorter arms, similar to the first link, but I am gonna make my own truss like what is shown in the second two links

so I graduate the 14th of june, Instead of your typical senior week, my buddy and I decided that were gonna just take off work and have a wrenchfest to get this and a bunch of other mods done, than go to rausch creek for a couple days to test em all out

im excited

my girlfriend may be getting my those suspension seats on page 1/2

getting an idea of what I am gonna need for the four link

getting a hold of some spare 35 shafts and a 35 lsd that came out of a police interceptor jeep xj, Really looking at putting an aussie in my front axle also, I actually feel that a front locker will help my rear axle since I probably wont have as much wheel spin when I lift a tire.

its looking like my lowers are gonna end up 26" long and my uppers being 32", Im definitely gonna need a custom exhaust since my passenger side upper is in the way of my muffler

so I got my hp 30 on friday, I began tearing it down today.

I also made a hand throttle on sunday.

pic time
















So im considering getting those axle seals that alloy usa makes, anyone run em and like them? this axle lived most of its life in mass and ny so its a bit rusty, not horrible, but not great either.

also heres a poll for you guys, UCF TT or d30 aussie? The tt would give me more clearance, which is something I could defenitely use, but the aussie would defenitely give me more traction.

Great looking jeep man! I am plannin on 4-linking my rear one of these days too, so I'll be following yours with the eyes of a hawk. also, as for the aussie vs. tummy tuck, I'd say the aussie, because I personally wish I had a locker literally every time I wheel, and you already have the stock skid, which is pretty low hanging, but it definitely works! just my two cents.

^^^ you defenitely make a good point about the aussie, but on the same token, when I get stuck its most of the time on my belly, so while a locker may give me more traction to get out, a belly skid would also prevent the stuck entirely


as for the 4-link, Im really hoping its gonna work out, I need to head to my local welding shop and get prices though first, my 115v mig is no match for .25" wall square tube. I will be following goldswim's build the closest.


I got the unit bearing off the shaft today in school, wasn't too bad, gotta clean p the shafts and tear down the u-joints so I can put new 5-760's in it.

this weekend I ordered:

5-760's
ubolts for my yokes so I can get rid of the flimsy straps

rear upper adjustable control arms

I still need:

d30 and 35 master install kits
gear labor
ucf uhc tummy tuck


The 4-link is out, once I started to factor in having a weldor do all the welds it just wasn't worth it.
