Heading out to Havasu for 4 days to go play with the Jeep, some dirtbike riding, and probably some water fun by taking out the Jetski and Seadoo!!

Gonna be fun, but its going to be 99 degrees out there! Looks like most of my Jeeping will be at night!

I am prepared for the gas bill since the Jeep gets like 14mpg, boo. It would probably be cheaper to put the Jeep on a tow dolly and pull it with my LS1 swapped Tacoma, that one gets 24mpg even driving fast, I could probably manage 18+mpg pulling, amazing....I guess since the motor is from the 70s and its shaped like a brick a Jeep gets horrible mileage.

If anyone is gonna be in Havasu, PM me today and well meet up, longshot, I know..

Anyone have any experience installing a Novak linkage for a NV231?

Added a BL and my linkage is currently maxed out and will not successfully shift throughout. Ordering a Novak tomorrow and I hear it's pretty simple but wouldn't mind someone whose done this to be around to supervise.

I'll bring the beers.

Awesome. Joe does a lot for us here. I went over to his place while he helped a friend replace his shock mounts. I'll send him a PM. Thanks.

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).
i ran 513 with 35s on my JK. don't fear the gear

it was a manual. it saw some highway driving actually. never had to downshift up the hills. 75mph was about 2850RPM. i usually go the speed limit though. crawling was flipping amazing though. never had to touch the gas, it sort of just worked itself out LOL

i wouldnt recommend going higher then 488 with 35s on an auto.

I was thinking 488 with my manual. But I wouldn't be doing that till the end of the year. It was probably nearly impossible to kill it haha.

yea man, it was rediculous. i seldom if ever used the clutch. Jeff has a picture somewhere of me in the thing going up or down something with me with both my legs pointing out the door opening. lol

488 would probably be good for you. 513 was def a lot of gear, but i freakin loved it!

I have 4.88s and 35s on my TJ. It works pretty well. I have the nv3550 trans. I'm at about 2500 RPMs at 70mph.

There's a glass place in front of the Ecology domestic yard in Otay Mesa, if you haggle a little he'll do a Wrangler windshield for $99 out the door, I'm up to three from him

If you're down by Jeff's sometime fell free to stop by and take the Jeeps out for a spin, 35's on both, one with 4:10's and one with 4:88's, you can get an idea of the gearing difference

Thanks for the heads up. I was quoted 2 and 3 times that at most places. I will have to take you up on the joyrides when I get the chance. This weekened I'm out of town and next my rubi swapped got moved to priority so Gringoinatj can use my old axles. Any chance you could pick me up a ZJ if you see one down at ecology. I wont have time to make the run down there and could pay you whatever they charge plus for the hassle of taking it off If not Ill just head down there next half pricer.
