Hey guys, Im in Morrisville as well. Chris, just got your PM, welcome to the jeep world. Hit me up any time you want to talk jeeps or meet up. I didnt see this bucks county post til now... I was just going to post up and see if anyone was local.
Any local YJ/CJ mechanics that would want to work for a heart felt thankyou or a case of beer? I need a second set of eyes on my YJ. Im out of ideas, I think my weber carb is out of tune but might be something else Im missing.
Lately I cant seem to keep my YJ running. Might be something else but she likes to stall at stop signs, lights, or if I let off the gas too fast. Also been using her to tow my boat and its a real pain when the engine stalls on the ramp.
if your interested in helping out, send me a PM or post back on here.
anyone got old set of stock or aftermarket lca"s for a jk . sheared the rear uca brackets off the turboturd sat night at pendell...both of em.. had to ratchet strap everything back together to limp it home...cutting off all the stock mounts from the frame and removing uca brackets from 8.8 and ditchin trackbar. and going mid arms...10 '' longer lowers (jk length lowers ) and using xj front lowers as my new tj rear uppers but triangulating to a truss above the diff. anyone got old control arms i may be able to make work..maybe with cutting n welding? cant spring for a real deal 4 link kit..gladly pay for some good used lca's i can repurpose
love to..but .. Heinz..even cheap ones I wouldn't wanna use would be 25-30 per..x4 for lowers and 20-25 per for uppers x4 .. then thread tube adapter x8 at 15 per then the jamb nuts..and actual dom tube ... all said n done 400-500 for everything to make arms. then a truss..150. 22.5 deg pocket type upper frame brackets x2at 30-35 per lower link mounts x2 at 25-30 per plus link mount for truss .. don't forget shipping all this heavy stuff ... it adds up quickly. .. so I've ordered the frame mounts. after shipping its 108.00 . ..as far as truss goes I'm fabbing that from scratch. and after cutting off the upper control arm mounts off the 8.8 I can potentially reuse them on the truss. .. as far as arms go I'm modifying the stuff I'm compiling ..a buddy works at 4x4 shop and can get me used stuff in good shape. I'll use those parts to build arms of whatever length I need. as money becomes available I can build super shweet ones but these will do till then. . I have some threaded swivel type lca's I'm stretching to use as uppers should reduce binding and stress on bushings. still on fence with lowers ..kinda wanna go with jk length lowers cause of future availability of slightly used units from my parts source
