If you change things out, I'd like to see what you end up doing with the sending unit; I'm eventually swapping to an external pump and filter, but I'm maintaining the factory sender.

I did get radiator I took it out of box and put it back in box since I'm not ready yet..

My initial thought was rad seems very nice, but the L channel used for mounting to Jeep seems kinda thin??? I guess just have to see how it holds up.

Pace has been slow going, side tracked with surprise vacation trip for my Birthday.

I also sold a 79 Dana 60 I had, but over weekend bought a complete 86F350 single wheel truck, for the front.. I think i want to narrow pass side so I get 64in witdh.

I possibly have a guy coming to buy my 8.8 from jeep, wish I wouldnt have thrown away myd35, gunna be hard to move around.
Trying to get ahold of a guy about a 14 bolt thats from C C truck I think they are 63-64 wide..

What size tires are you planning to run? The 14bff seems a bit much for anything under 38". Especially if you already have an 8.8. Are you planning a stretch and big rubber too? That just seems like a lot of ground clearance lost and weight added otherwise!

I will eventually shave the 14 bolt, it likely is more beef than I need for now. I'm also not to happy with the rear factory style shortarm setup. I want to go 4 link and get rid of the track bar. So would be better to sell the 8.8 setup for TJ than cut all stuff off. Then cost is a factor, I'm going to run a Dana 60 front and cheaper to just stay on 8 lug, I already planned on having to buy wheels cause I was going to run a D44 and need 5 on 5.5. If I would have kept 8.8 either need adapters $100 or C Clip eliminator kit $500. to get Big 5, but then LOL the 60 would cost me a bunch to get down to 5 lug. So I figured would be cheaper in the long run, eventually I will likley put some big meats on it. Just not from the start, but that could change.


Hoping tonight to weld in my engine mounts, I messed with them last nightfor awhile till my 14 bolt showed up, guy delivered it to me!! Can't beat that.

What did the 14 cost in your area? I found a late model srw with disc brakes already on it for 250.

It was 200. A little on the high side??, but I paid the guy little extra and he delivered to me, which saved me alot of time hunting one down, Plus has new bearings and all cleaned up allready.

I think you can buy a regular SRW one for cheaper, but just depends.

Slow going, but finally making little progress.

Picking up a new welder tonight. This has been the major hold back once I moved to working back in my garage.

I also sold my 8.8 I have everything coming to 4 link my rear 14 bolt. I have most of the stuff coming to 3 link my 60 in front. My timeframes have been way pushed back. Trying to go ahead and build it up quite a bit.
