I was there taking pics and drinking beer.

I hopefully will be installing my 4.10 gears soon too.
I got to find a carrier to fit it.

Nate; working up a sweat trying to cut 4130 chromo with my chopsaw. We both screwed around for awhile then decided we'd abandon the chopsaw method & switch to using my plasma cutter. Plasma took all of ~15 seconds to cut the 2.5" OD x 2.0" ID chromo tubing we were using as a sleeve.



After ~15 minutes with the chopsaw - this is as far as we got.



IIRC, the sleeve ended up needing to be ~3". So after we did some measuring & triple checks for length, we cut the XJ drive shaft to length using the chopsaw and cleaned up the drive shaft tube, then dremeled the shaft & sleeve so everything fit nice & tight with no slop.

Oh yea, we also needed to remove one of the original balance weights so that the new sleeve would fit. We knocked it off with a screwdriver & hammer. As you can see here - the factory uses 2" OD x ~.120 wall HREW for the XJ's front drive shaft.




Here's how it looked prior to the welding:






We installed the new 1310 to 1330 combo ujoint into the Ford pinion flange adapter using my ujoint tool. Then after welding, we cleaned up the drive shaft with some Simple Green, masked off the spline & yoke bolts, then rattle canned some primer & black paint on it.




Watching paint dry:

So now that Nate is driveable, my painting is done what next? I still have a fair amount of work putting all the hardware, doors, mirrors, etc back on but that is easy work.

I think the next major project is either axles for Jimmy or Jasons lift. All hands on one jeep seems like the best way to go for these major jobs.

Well if you would get Your jeep out of Your driveway so I can get my Jeep back there, I have plenty to do

The Jeep looks nice, let's talk about tub lining one of these weekends, Maybe we can line up three or four at one time if anyone else in interested

And for the calendar:

Saturday, October 3

Jeep Swap Meet
330 ELM ST, RAMONA, CA.
Miller Off-Road Products
760-788-6557

Saturday, October 3rd and Sunday, October 4th 2009
All Parts 50% off
Ecology Auto Parts

What a dilemma...

I talked with some folks who went to Ramona for the last swap meet and they said it was worth the trip. I'm thinking I may head up that way Saturday morning. If nothing else there's always breakfast at Ramona Cafe
