I can fix whatever you can afford.

The tire balance didn't take it all away. Still there a tiny bit. Found a little bit of play (2 mm?) in one upper ball joint. Replaced that and it's better. Not all the way, but mostly. I can drive 55 and it doesn't shake at all. It seems to now closer to 60, and again just the tiniest bit.

I bet WJ crossover setup with one ton steering won't have any shimmy

I just saw an XJ that did the swap, but kept the stock XJ steering (temporarily) and says it is driving great. I may increase the parts collection speed to get that done, since there is much left to desire on the front of mine.

The next expensive thing I buy will probably be some A/C for the house though. I'm dyin here.

The WJ bits would require new knuckles, calipers, etc., right? I'm thinking about getting a ZJ tie rod and ends since its about the only think I haven't replace yet.

I would die without A/C. You could get a window air conditioner temporarily, at least for the bedroom or living room.

Well the tie rod for a wj is longer. The axles are wider.

Bought a window unit for my rental house today! Someday I'll replace whatever tie rod(s) is bad on the front of my WJ and bring in down to GR.

Yep. I picked up knuckles a few weeks ago at the yard, but they didn't have the brakes I wanted. I've heard before that you can get loaded calipers from NAPA for decent. Still need those, ball joints, new unit hubs, and spacers. I put a V8 ZJ tie rod on mine last year. I'm happy with that for now, way beefier than stock.

And yes, I will probably end up with two small window units since my house is fairly small that will do fine. Better than nothing!

I don't know, I was backing out of the drive way to get some ice cream with the fam and it stalled on me. It keeps acting like when you drop the clutch on a manual except I have an automatic. This happened once before but this time I wasn't able to get it started back up.

The stalling is probably the iac. Idle air control. Mine went bad and did the same thing. At least that is the first place if start
