what have you found at the junk yard!
 
Im curious at what nice "hidden treasures" you guys have found..so i can keep a look out my self and i was wondering about v8 ZJ springs all around. I heard there is a lift of around 4-4.5" and/or what you guys would recommend.!!

Found a York compressor in an old 73' Volvo. Working on setting up my OBA system.

aerostars have a very nice relay box sitting on the left inner fender. can't remember which year though. you have to get two to get enough terminals to fill it up. has a nice cover, tabs for mounting and routes the wires out one end. looks nice.

I understand that a Ford LTD has springs which can be swapped out for a TJ straight swap, and then that will give you a 3" lift.

Do a search for junk yard mods on here and you will find a huge write up about it...

Mustang/Lincoln 5.0 liter HO SEFI engines, fuel injected 460s, Detroit lockers, GT40 heads and manifolts and throttle body, mail Jeep D44 rear axles (narrow track), more tracklocks than you can throw a stick at, T-176s, Jeep T-18s, T-5s of all sorts, Cherokee 4" lift coils,...

Enjoy!

the heavier duty vehicles sometimes have nice oil coolers on them. rangers also have a nice size tranny cooler. early 80's mercedes diesel have a huge oil cooler on the side of the radiator, probably 4"x6"x 16"? make sure to grab the fittings for it as well.

what cars have the ford 8.8 explorer?mustang? and was wondering if any of you know any write ups how to fab it to fit a tj

zedpapa 03-28-2009 10:14 PM

explorer, mustang, and ranger, i think. i think the explorer is the most popular because it requires the least amount of work and can be had with discs. rangers have a similar setup but the mustang is a triangulated-four-link.

90's cadillac devilles have some nice weatherproof relays on the drivers side fenders. Even comes with a mounting bracket.

York compressor and Taurus fan. I've seen people walk away with d60's and 8.8 though.
