Any "Nuttered" CJ 4.2s local to MA?
 
I'm in the process of starting to re-wire my 86 CJ7 4.2 and looking to "nutter" it at the same time. The Jeep doesn't have any vacuum lines or canister in place, so I'd love to see a copy a local nuttered 4.2. I bought the Jeep in pieces as a frame and didn't remove the wiring myself, so I don't know the state of anything.

I'm South of Boston and can provide home-brewed beer for help.

Side question, have you passed inspection since nuttering?

Thanks, but I thought you had to pass a visual, which I would clearly fail without a cat or vacuum lines/charcoal canister.

Yeah, what size tires are you running? I think I will go with 3.73s when it is time because trail use will be light and I have overdrive for highway use.

I'm running 35" tires, but I have T18 and Scout Dana 300 so I'm geared low for 4 Wheeling. If you are gonna run big tires I would go with min 4:10's
Or put a 4 to 1 in your Dana 300

33s are as big as I'm going and could step down to 32s if I rub, but doubt it. I think 3.73s will be enough since I intend to do some highway and no wheeling is local.

Thanks. Right now I'm in most need of wiring help and to get this thing started. Probably only another month or so before things slow for the winter.

You have a lifted LJ? Seen one around and it was parked around the corner the other day by another lifted TJ.

Yup. It was parked beside a JK at SouthSide the other night, and also beside a JK at the mall. No TJs that I know of.

Any Braintree area CJ owners around to help trouble shoot some wiring? What I really need is a running (and ideally nuttered) late 4.2 CJ next to me so that I can copy the wiring or trouble shoot with. I can't get this thing going for the life of me.
