Yes, durtyrok is a Jeep club based out of Charlotte, NC. It is actually going to be sort of a newbie run type event. All are free to join. A thread should be posted about it on here pretty soon.

Club site is forum.durtyrok.com

Took it in to get the tick checked out. Left with a new idler pulley, new fan clutch, new A/C compressor, recharged fluids, new oil, new oil filter, and new air filter.

Soon to be on the chopping block: new brakes and new clutch.

Also, I got my subs and back seat back in.

Big congrats to my step-dads little brother for getting a Jeep. Levi now has a 1999 red XJ. He might be the youngest member on the forum @ 13! I've been helping him determine his drivetrain for his profile. His username is Leroy99xj (yes I picked it).

I've decided to make some big changes. My goal this summer:
1. New (to me) axles. My step-dad and I are currently sourcing some axles from the local junk yards. Looking to find 2 Ford 8.8's and a HP30 from a '96-'99 XJ. One of the 8.8's and the HP30 are going under my rig. Trying to find a set geared 4.10 so I don't have to do a gear swap yet. The other 8.8 is going under his YJ.
2. SYE. Time to get that done.
3. Metalcloak front bumper. Its what I really want and I can get a stubby with the setup I want for $363 shipped. I'll sell of my Smittybilt bumper, both pairs of 130w KC's and my KC brackets. I decided I want to drop my windshield every now and again so I'm just going to sell both pairs.
4. HID headlight upgrade. I'm going to need that light when I sell my KC's.

I'm pretty pleased with this plan. The bumper will give a much cleaner appearance and a better approach angle. The axles will solve my awful gearing and give a solid platform to build off of. The HID's will make it possible to see without the KC's, plus they are an excellent light source if aimed correctly. The SYE will remove my tcase drop and I will need a new driveshaft for the 8.8 anyways.

I am expecting $1700-$1800 from my job (after paying off debts to my dad), $200 from my uncle for graduation, a decent sum for graduation from my parents and about $400 from selling off old parts (including other stuff I have now). Also my parents will probably put some money towards something on my birthday, so this is a solid start.

4.10 HP30s are rare, but if you do find one that should solve your gearing problem quite nicely. You might have to settle for one with a vacuum disco, but that is easy to fix.

I'm sure they are. I just would like to avoid a regear since they are so expensive and we don't have the skills ro do it ourselves. I know they exist. I just need to find a 96-99 XJ 4 cyl auto or V6 manual. What do you think about the rest of it? Especially the cloak?
