Do you know anything about lifting with bigger leafspring shackles?

Speaking of cheap mods. I remember reading somewhere a while ago that putting a stock ZJ V8 airbox in a YJ will give it a little more kick. I can't find it anywhere now but is that true? I can't see just having a bigger box giving it any more power, althogh I do have an aftermarket header kit and bigger diameter exhaust on it so maybe....

What a great idea. I'm going to do this ASAP. I'm so tired of taking 20 minutes or more to fill my tank.

WOW........I did this vent tube removal today. It took a little convincing, but I got it out. I knew I had about 2-3 gallons of fuel in my 20 gallon tank so when I went to fill it up it took about 17 gallons before the pump clicked off. What a relief to fill up in about 5 minutes instead 20.

Thank you Jesse-James!!!
