I can't see paying this price. I know YJ are a little different and I didn't have AC to start with, but I set up a complete OBA system for $250.

Here is my winter list
Make a front D44 truss (if it is easy, make the rear one too)
Install hydro assist
Redesign hood hoop/bumper
Redesign tube fenders
Make a front square DS
Play around with my front suspension to strectch it out a couple of inch.

I want to retain my ac so a brkt to move the altenator down and mount the york compressor that I already have and then just add the clutch. I found everything that I need on sale with free shipping for $280.00 so not to bad?

Later,

Where did you get all your stuff from? I don't really know where to get a used compressor, so I think that's a big part of things. Where did you get your brackets and everything?

I'll have to send you a link for the brkts, but as far as the ac pump you can visit the local salvage yard or look for someone parting out an older(late 70 early 80s) vehicle that has the york compressor. A used compressor should only cost 30-40 buck as the clutch will have to be replaced with a new one.

I know a couple of us(like me, I use an Extreme Flow) are using a sanden compressor instead of a york...
6 of 1 half dozen...



My Winter list:
replace rear springs( 1 broken leaf and a sagging jeep)
replace aluminim pinion shims with steel
install a coelessing filter on the oba
replace red battery cable
replace front front drive shaft u-joint
8.8 rear diff(at which time I will have a used Super 35 with a Detroit and disc brakes for sale)
Sye and a new drive shift(low)

I have accumulated these parts for the winter:
2 new BDS springs
4 bump stop extenders
2 steel pinion shims from Poison Spyder
4 new axle u-bolts(see below)
Battery cables
Front ds u-joint
I did buy a cheap output filter(harbor freight) for the oba, but have thought twice about installing it(will go to kilby for it instead)
I am debating the changing the shackle u-bolts to the dynatrac reversal set, so will not do spring work until the debate has been won by one side or the other.

Is the S35 coming out of your YJ? If so, I might be interested in it for my XJ. It might be an easier route than getting all the stuff for the 8.25 that I was going to do to run my 33's. What's it geared at?

It would be the one I am using now on my Yj(remember...I am still using it )
It is geared at 4.11 with Yukon gears. It has Superior 4130- 30 spline axle shafts. Detroit 30 spline Soft locker. The disc brakes are from a '90s ford ranger, so parts are cheap and around. It has a 3/8 by 3 inch truss on each axle tube. The tubes are welded to the pumkin.
As Dana 35's go, this one is sweet.
Prolly looking at after the new year before I do any thing about it.
If you want...I'll give you first shot...It is well USED.. so it will most likely will be CHEAP

I would be very likely to take it off your hands. I've got the S35 in my TJ, and it'd be a better route for me to go with as opposed to the 8.25 in the XJ. I'd need to regear it, and likely redo the spring perches, but no biggie there. Let me know when you get it swapped!

I will talk to my boss about using the parking lot for our repairs. It is a small place, perhaps 4 or 5 rigs at a time. The nice thing is, it is centrally located at I-25 and Evans.
I will ask about the 22nd.
