Compression test it and see... then when you know the deal figure the $ FIRST... rather than doing what i can SEE you are doing which is what i DID and still DO... which is dream... and imagine coolness and dream... then get the bad news AFTER wards... and its all too late.
Get your info from www.amazon.com
- find a book called Jeep 4x4 Performance Handbook - By Jim Allen ... [anyone know where i can find him ??] then buy it... then buy a sub to JP magazine and Petersons 4x4... then call www.4wd.com
and get a catalogue then goto www.quadratec.com
and get things a bit cheaper... but less range... and lastly be ready for small bills and lots of them and big bills and lots of them.
Sounds like you got a steal alright... got any photos of your $400 Jiip... ?
Good luck ... may the force be with you.
