This was really a forced "upgrade" for me - my stock gear box was leaking and worn out. I figured that I'd go with the Superbox because of the variable turning ratio (and it was cheaper than a "remanufactured" stock gearbox - 389 vs. 499 at 4wd Hardware). AGR recommends installing their PS pump in conjunction with the gearbox but I left the stock one in there for now because I'm not sure which direction I'll go in the future with my engine (rebuild or 4.0L swap) and whether or not there's a difference between the 4.2/4.0L pumps. Aside from bleeding the system I haven't done any real road testing yet (winter in MN = -30 degree windchills lately and I've got the Jeep stripped down due to other winter projects). I can say that the new bracket is way beefier than the stock brackets and the Borgeson steering shaft is a really nice piece. The whole set-up is really tight with no "slop" that I can see. I'll be installing a steering box brace next weekend to complete the whole deal...

Installed one of those Heim-joint clutch linkage replacement kits along with a new bellcrank and bellcrank brackets. My old linkage was worn out to the point of imminent breakage! Still need to dial in the new linkage, but it's a lot better than what I was driving!

Uncle Russ, I replaced the linkage on mine not too long ago but I had no choice, the linkage decided it didnt wana play anymore and snapped apart. fun thing to happen when your going down the road and you go to up shift to go around the corner and boom your foot hits the floor...lol it was an experience...I never did find all the pieces...

Changed the oil, air filter, wipers, and got some new floormats on Sunday for the 96, then went to the local deserted parking lot for some donuts in the snow, reminding me that a set of tires is in my near future, along with wheel bearing(s) and possibly new bushings/shocks.

Started warming up the garage at 0630 with the space heater, went out at 1200 to start test fitting the radiator, and powersteering hose fittings....Not enough room for the adapter fittings and the -AN hose fittings to work without hitting the lower radiator tank...GRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm presently holding a meeting of the Hack Fabrication Design and Engineering Team. Of course, there are a few Bud's being drunk.......

Over the past couple weeks, pulled the radiator and had it cored and a slow leak fixed, and while that was out, put in a shift kit and took off all the ac stuff. Friday dropped my fuel tank and calibrated the sending unit.

Sunday I finished up installing the sending unit in my fuel tank. Finished brushing all the rust off the tank and skid plate. Painted both and reinstalled the tank. Found out that my power to the fuel gauge is grounded out bad somewhere and I have to track that down pretty soon.
