I guess there was a misunderstanding, I have today (Monday) off. I think the date and time that our post set are wrong, or in another time zone

As far as a locker goes it has the Track lock stock limited slip, but not a true locker.

So I am going to weld up the tubes to the diff and build a medium duty truss, meanwhile I will search for that XJ 4cyl front diff for the HP swap and the regear them both, I will truss the front and weld the tubes as well on that too.

So its getting time for me to get the coilovers and springs so I can be ready for the axle swaps, and at that time I will also do the SYE and new driveshaft so it will all happen at once, just getting all the parts together, gearing, lockers and all the trussing and welding

So glad I finally found a rear axle to build..

I still keep going back and fourth between 33" and 35" tires, cant make up my mind...I am kinda thinking of going with 33 x 10.5 or 35 x 12.5, with the 33" tires I can use my wheels and just get spacers to save a bit of cash, but bigger tires allow me to go more places, however it seems that 35" is that mystical number where you will need to start beefing up the brakes and steering system (more $$$$$). Oh boy what to do..

So I just got back from a short trip to Texas, visiting friends and attending a wedding. I can say with certainty that any one who thinks there is a good, authentic BBQ here in San Diego is kidding themselves.

The people we stayed with belong to a championship BBQ team and even though the team was recently formed they have won a few trophys.

They take it seriously down there and the results prove it


Here is some of the the equipment for a simple hobbyist.

trailer bbq pit.



trailer mounted walk in cooler


second pit with a water tank and sink

Is anyone familiar with Crab Flats campground near big bear? Some friends and I plan on spending a weekend there soon and I am new to the area so any advice or suggestions on trails or anything else from your experience would be greatly appreciated?

Pine trees everywhere.
Chris will probably chime in tomorrow and tell you what ever you want to know. He's from that area.
What trails will you be running?
Be specific on what you want to know so he can answer.

Maybe you can tell me why my AC relay isn't getting power to turn on the compressor. It's getting a on signal to activate the relay but I had to run a jumper wire to the relay from the headlamps which get power directly from the battery via the PDC junction. In my 95 ZJ and why my engine hates idling after stopping for a few mins when the ECM and sensors are fine

Ive finally secured a place to do the engine swap in my 90 YJ so if I have trouble I'll know who to bug first now. though my girlfriend's brother in law who is offering his garage is in charge of a marine corps mechanical shop at Pendleton so I hope he knows his way around things though he is on deployment so I have to await his return...maybe I'll be able to install a full exhaust at this rate too. Need a catalytic and muffler mine are rusted through and through


On a different note is this the Wildomar OHV area spoken of a few days ago?

Let me know what you need to know and I can probably answer it, its a pretty nice and central area for wheeling the mountain. Your profile doesn't say if you are locked or not but I would definitly recomend Holcolm creek trail from that area to fawnskin but if you are not locked you will be better off going from Fawnskin down. It's a very scenic trail with alot of water crossings. Other than that john bull is fun but somewhat challenging for some and also gold mountain and pontiac sluce are good ones. While up there go by the discovery center and grab a map of the trails it will help you out a lot.
