How much are you looking to spend? I found a few nice ones when I was looking but then found my TJ that I couldn't pass up.

Grand is that blue one still for sale at your work? I know I needed brakes and sway bars and ac fixed but it was a decent ride for under 2k

Ask him what he wants for it, what it is out of, what gearing...

No the xj isnt for sale anymore as the guy at my work was the one who bought it from the guy. He tried selling it to me for 1200$ with all of those problems along with a "bottom end noise". He ended up selling it for 2k plus to my coworker.

Do EET! When I came over for the speedo gear that day, I'm pretty sure I heard your wife say she can't wait for you to bring home an awesome project like an old jeep! You have her blessing, what more could you ask for? Roflmao

Why is the 99 special? Is there something that makes it better?

Last year of the HP Dana30 in the front and still uses the distributor ignition. Plus, all the nice upgrades that the later models got. Oh, and no 0331 head issues.

Andy, the TTB is $150 came out of a late 80's early 90's bronco. Finding out what gears are in it later today.

Andy, do some research on the D44 TTB's... There's pros and cons to the early ones compared to the newer ones. For instance, I specifically have pulled a pre '86 set for the spindles I'm building. There's a couple different spindle setups out there. Just know they aren't all the same...

for instance, here's the setup I have, this is ALL one piece! The bearing races press into the rotor/hub assembly.




Vs., here's the later style brake rotor...



And here's the hub...






The bearings are different sized between the two and the spread of the inner and outter bearings are different. Some people prefer one and others prefer the other. I went with the earlier ones with the wider bearing spread. Granted, if I ever have to replace my rotors, they aren't cheap to buy new. Luckily they're pretty easy to find in the junkyards and could easily be turned. Mine have to be custom machined on top of that which makes it a pain but it's all part of the game when going 100% custom stuff... I'm hoping though with the little bit of mileage my ride sees I won't be having brake issues anytime soon and as long as I keep the pads from wearing out completely hopefully I'll never have a problem. I'm hoping to have my rotors custom machined next week. I started last week but snapped the cutoff tool on the lathe in the process. I need to order another one today and am hoping to knock them out early next week so I can get started on designing the spindles.

Are you SURE thats all one piece? I hadnt heard of that. The jeep ones and ford ones ive seen are just press fit. knock out the studs and they separate. You can buy them as a unit or just buy the rotors.

I'll double check but I couldn't see a casting line break anywhere and I've never seen just the rotor for sale for the '80-86 bronco/F150. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure it's all solid. I'll be knocking out the studs before it's done and drilling them out to press in 5/8" nascar studs so I'll find out for sure then.

Edit...
http://www.autozone.com/autozone/par...9_172987_4825_

Looks like it's a press fit between the two. Shows how much I pay attention. I needed it all either way so didn't really care. All the ones I saw for sale were the entire assembly so I just assumed it was one piece.
