Nice, should be a fairly straightforward swap, there are a bunch of good writeups on it as you probably know. What gear ratio?

I'd spend more time figuring it out and take care of it myself but I have to work all week.
Do you know what the code was before you cleared it? normally cam/crank sensors are a go/no go type deal in most cases, or sometimes the pickup gets too much debris on it to get a consistent reading and will have intermittent errors.
Do you notice any loss of power?

The stock 4.11's which will be fine till I go to 35's which will still be awhile. I want everything set up right before I go there. As far as the swap, as long as there is no driveshaft length problems then it should be easy. Hows your setup coming along? Anyone progess on your suspension?

I ran my old Rubi axles with 4:10 gears and 35's for a couple of years, worked fine, a little sloggish on highway uphills but not all that bad

I think 4.10 on 35's would be pretty close, or maybe slightly better than 3.07 on 33's. To put it nicely the 33's/307 combo sucked for crawling especially climbing. I dont know whether I would eventually want 456 or 488. 456 seems like Id still be wanting deeper gears when crawling, where as 488 would be great for crawling but I'd have to be in third gear by the time I got through an intersection. I think the next steps are new CA's (savvy most likely but not sure whether to spend the extra for the aluminum?) and a steering upgrade (anyone going to ecology on the 5th or 6th).

My starter died today when I tried to leave the house to get gas.

Tried to remove it and swap with a new one but one of the POS 6 point bolt heads stripped out, so now I'm out of a Jeep

All about that unibody life.

I have 4:88's now, work quite well but I do hit 3rd gear after 50 feet

Nice on the highway but max's out about 75

Will be at Ecology Saturday morning for the half-price sale to get more junk I don't need. Usually there's always a GC steering setup there (If you go grab two, carry a spare setup)

I have the Savvy aluminum uppers, they are nice for adjusting the pinion angle, but in reality, once it's set, it's set, it's not going anywhere. And the lock nuts are sort of a pita. You could get the standard arms and if the mood strikes you down the road you can always buy just the aluminum arm but my feeling is that the standard arms have been great for years and will continue to be great for years to come.

By standard are you talking about the steel ones or you talking something without johny joints. When I price it out with just uppers and then another brand for the rest the price difference isn't great enough for me to go with something that will likely be replaced sooner than the jj's.

So, the new muffler makes the speakers sound even better, right?

Update: Had to spend $70 on a reman starter at AutoZone, was able to get the stripped out bolt off with an impact hammer. Threw the new starter in and it roared to life with ease.

Correctomundo, steel as opposed to aluminum. The Currie arms are pretty sweet. Somewhere buried in JeepForum is a good set of directions from Blaine on setting up a Currie lift. Be sure to get the Currie bumpstops.. I'll poke around and see if I can find it

Spend money at swap meet or spend money wheeling and camping, hmm

After careful consideration, the desert wins
