just a thought on the leaf springs one of my friends took the leaf springs off of a 90's astro van and cut them down since they are made of fiberglass and we have taken his YJ some pretty sick places and they work awesme and he hasn't had any problems with them breaking or cracking, like i said just a thought for ya for a future upgrade

he just used a chop saw and then drilled the holes in the ends to hold the hangers just with a regular drill bit i think, but i know it wasnt that difficult to do.

i found ya something even better, try this site. from what i remember he did it the same way and i know he hasn't had any problems despite what some critics may say about them failing. but i do know from when i have been wheelin with him that he got into some sick places and still had all the flex and clearance in all the world is seemed.

well i got the donor truck last friday it has 130k on the odo but at 106 he put in a brand new crate engine with an erson cam(.449/.292), Edelbrock performer intake, hooker headers,3inch dual exaust, rebuilt the trans and put a B&M shift kit in it and also a trans cooler..... I bought the truck for $600 because he couldnt get it running I started looking at it when i got it home and noticed he had the fuel lines on backwards... so i switched them around and started right up....

this video is the truck with only headers
