Dang, some people find some deals!!!
Great job bringing it back to life
Haha, not sure I'll ever get another deal like that.
Now for the updates:
-Daystar 1" body lift. The nice kind that replaces your old body mounts and give you a inch of body lift.
-Brown Dog Offroad 1" motor mount lift.
Which means that I will be able to put on my CJ front clip as I please. AND have a little bit of driveline correction so I can run a 1" shackle if I still rub.
I also stopped by Endangered Species Jeep shop in Holyoke, MA. Talked to a nice gentleman named Todd, I beileive he is the owner. After discussing it with him I am going with my original plan of re-building my CJ 258 with a 4.0 head and running a Motorcraft 2100 carb. If I dont like that setup I will switch to fuel injection down the road.
He also has a couple things I am interested in purchasing if I can scrounge up the money.
Should be picking up my Dana 300 for the engine swap this coming week. Im getting a deal from a fellow Mass.Krawler club member. $150 bucks.
Also hopefully I am getting a AX-15 for free, as long as I help my friend strip down a junk YJ. Apparently the body and frame are junk and the engine was just pulled.
Also my front springs are bent so I contacted Rough Country and they are sending me new ones with no questions asked. Big thumbs up to RC today.
