It is difficult to find stock parts for. It is the easiest thing in the world to find other parts for. If you pop an axle and can't find replacement parts, you throw in a different axle. Leaf springs are easy. All I would do to it is paint it so that it looks okay, lock it up, and then beat the hell out of it. I like the way that ksturgio thinks about it. Rip the roof off it, build a cage and go to town.

I want to keep the top for now, so no chop chop for now. And as far as parts go, they are easy to get cheap. My axles are strong enough for what i'm going to do with it for now, and if one pops 1 ton ford axles are going under it. This is not a daily driver so quirks with having a welded rear diff are not a concern. And besides, lots of guys run spools in they're rigs with no major issues. My only issue right now is vapor lock, and im going to do like Marn said a run an electric fuel pump and rerun the line under the hood to try and fix the problem. I can drive around town all I want right now but its hell to drive up a long grade.

It will still be a heavy beast with a six cylinder. I would still say try to get rid of it before you start doing stuff that can't be undone. I still think that welded rear isn't going to last long driving to an from trails.

That depends on the strength of the rear end vs. the amount of traction. I have a buddy in Houston with a full spool 9" rear on his Mustang. It sees street duty to and from the dragstrip. Even running street slicks, he has never popped a shaft.

Sirhk100 has a spooled rear in his truck and he drives it on the street with no problems. A posi rearend should serve puck just fine if it's a beat em up trail rig.

FYI for his paint job the 99 cent rattle cans should do the trick, I'm thinking he could do the whole paint job for far less than $100 with supplies and it would probably look decent if the prep is done right and he takes his time.

I would like to know how well that handles on a long travel truck like his. Speaking of, has anybody heard from Khris lately?

Talked to him yesterday. I've ridden in the truck, and as a passenger I didn't notice it, if you go back in this thread he talks about it a few times and how it handles and such.

That would explain why he hasn't spoken to me in a while! I'm one of the ones that everyone goes "oh, HIM" when my name is mentioned?

Why is there a question mark on that? Of course that's what everyone says when you pull up in the sunkist mobile! Haha

Alright you two, knock it off. And Powr, as much as id like to get what I want, i'm already into this Cherokee enough to want to keep it. My plans are set, budget set, now just have to work and save. $3500 will get it where I want it for now. After the vapor lock is addressed, the lift kit and welded diff is next. After that 35's, then manual hubs and front locker.

Nevermind, it's $1200! Like marn said, go with a good electric pump. I've got a lot of stainless tubing in 3/8 if you need to go with a bigger fuel line. May help.
