I just bought a Jeep yesterday for $400, from what I can tell I stole it, but it's def. a project truck. Just trying to meet up with some people and get to know some more about this thing. I spend most of my time drag racing my Mustang so this is a project to keep me away from breaking that every 6 months.
Sorry guys, last night I was finishing up a transmission swap in my Mustang. The stock parts didn't like leaving at 7500 and 100 shot.. Maybe we can get together Sunday. It's got a broke rear little door window, so I don't like driving it in the rain.
Well i am trying to do my gears. I have the tools and the gears bible from pirate. I am self teaching myself like with everything else on the xj. Another buddy that knows what he is doing helpede gear the dana 30 so i learned from that. I didnt finish last night just got too tedious trying to get the preload and backlash right lol.
I have stock steering on 4.5 inches of lift so the drop pitman arm is a bandaid till i can get better steering. I got it for 30 bucks as opposed to over 200 for new steering.
I got 4 inches of lift on stock steering. Only aftermarket part is a track bar. And Ahhhh okay. Yeah, I want to learn on gearing, but just keep checking it and run a pattern. All you can do lol.
Well i havnt ran a pattern yet cause i havnt been able to get my preload and backlash correct yet. Hoping i will have more patience today. Also i drank a lil much last night. I was close to just putting it all back together and rolling the dice lol. That was when i knew i had to stop lol. Pm me and i will give u my addy if you want.
