LOL its not your fault. You know somethings wrong when you feel the need to justify a HF purchase haha. I was eyeing the 30 footer for a while but something compelled me to test out the 20 first.

Found my lift kit:
Daystar™ - Driven by Design

restarting the Lift kit fund, shouldnt be too hard for a poly lift

Update: Still no word from the seller of the lift kit, I'm getting anxious but thats because I'm kind of excited with all the things I've been getting for the WJ lately:
  • Factory front tow hooks
  • D-Ring receiver hitch
  • 20k recovery strap
  • a drawer full of tools to work on it
  • a PIE iPod adaptor for the factory radio (Just won right now off ebay for $20!!!!)
  • I also found a 242 in the local junkyard with 90,xxx miles on it and they want $200. Its already pulled, waiting on a shelf

i believe you have the V8 and the pipe has to come off to replace the pan

should be a dana 44a but check out wjjeeps for more info
Thanks
It was just a pain to wrench the air box bolts / nuts under the fender by myself, the threads rust locked even though I went towards tight again and kept spraying them. I took both return hoses off the pump and let them drain awhile. I bumped it, let it run only 3 seconds at a time a few times.
Put them back, new hose clamp on cooler return. Never could find that filter I see in the FSM. Sounded unhappy and foamed the first time I started it, just a second or 2. Took a whole quart. The air box bolts got me feeling stupid for awhile. I'll be tackling that oil pan soon.

Got my build sheet, and reading around says its a 44, "looks like an apple laying on its side".

I did 800/1000/2000, rubbing compound, polishing compound ( I had both laying around) then Plastex, seal with 303. Not quite new, but they look great compared to how they did before.

Got the build sheet from Chrysler today! I verified that it has a D35. I also found out it had the california emissions package on it so now I know why the underbody is in pristine condition. I am all the more motivated to replace the cat now...

FYI, some other states such as NY require cali emissions. Mine came from a dealer in NY originally, and has cali emissions.

tarts sounds odd since NY is like the the 49 other states and just California has the emission thing.

could be it was made for California and was needed at a dealer in ny so they sent it their.
