What did you use to search for.....I'm running around ebay but it keeps throwing a bunch of extra crap at me....I need to narrow down my search more .

Did some trails in the mountains this morning. I haven't had the jeep out in awhile and today's such a beautiful day, i might just refuel and go back out.

Great driving awards = 96 in a 65 (first read was 107 but he "gave us a break" and a C&I for drag racing! I tried the ole "but sir it's a Cherokee" but it was a no go.

It probably didn't help that my brakes were literally smoking like hell when he came to my window (107 down to 60ish in a HURRY!)
Don't mean to be a Debbie Downer, but PLEASE keep all racing to the tracks. I've had to many friends get hurt or killed street racing. I used to do it too but have since done diffferent.

Everyone has their own opinion but our options are limited, nearest track for 1/8 is 2.5 hours and is only open a few times a year to non bracket racing, the closest 1/4 is well over 3 hours away.

Empty 4 lanes work just fine for us... But you have to watch for the guys hiding in the shadows!

I had an 89 camaro that I'd race on the 1/4. It was a drag/project car between my ex gfs brother and me. After we broke up we still worked on it and hit the drags a few times. Found out he street raced it blew the engine up for running nitrous.

Agreed. Those cops that you're running from tonight may be the ones knocking on your mother's door next time delivering some very unpleasant news.

No one said anything about running from cops, just being mindful of them when racing!

I should have elaborate and said that it rubbed at full lock on the inside of the wheel well on the engine side before I installed the spacers. Just thought it was weird and i'm concerned about getting bigger tires now. Just wasn't sure if that was normal or not.

Everything is back together now, but I need to figure out why the rotors will not come off. There are still miles left on current pads, so it's not critical to do it this weekend.
Omelet already mentioned this and I thought the same thing:
the parking brake, if over looked, can create quite the headache when trying to remove rear rotors. I know this from experience on our last WK.

I could be wrong but that does not sound normal. Are you sure something isn't out of place in the wheel well?
