It's a 21mm if that makes any difference, preaumably because that's also the stock size

Perfect. Thank you. Figured it did not matter to much within reason but this way I know what diameter nylon rope to buy or try to find lying around for when the time comes.

I want to say that when I looked up my rear brakes to do them all it asked was 9" or 10". By the way. Mostly likely you have 9" unless it was a Police one.

My trial and error results were that 1/8 was a tad flimsy and 1/4 a bit bulky but 3/16 did the job nicely. Nylon cord did indeed have good flex properties for the task.

I figured that nylon rope was a given. Did not even think about that. Kinda glad you mentioned it. I could see myself in the hardware store in the rope section. Looking at all the rope and then thinking to myself "Wait do I want nylon?".

Well it looked like it might rain. Worrying that it might I did something small. Got my passenger map pocket Dremeled off the Limited door panel, cleaned up the carpet part and plastic part, then double sided taped them back together. Then the clouds went away. Did the driver's awhile back. Now to just get them on my door panels.

Thanks Ralph. When searching came across some conflicting answers, although most said only thing I need to change is the larger ubolts. Since I'm getting a junk yard diff I'm just assuming the brakes will be junk on it. Didn't want to spend money on all new brakes unless I have to.

No problem. Just hope I am not misleading you. As far as the 9" and 10" go easy to tell. 10" drums are finned. The brake lines go in at an angle to the wheel cylinders. The wheel cylinders on 10" are different part numbers for right and left. 9" are not finned. The brake lines go in straight. The part numbers for the wheel cylinders are the same for right and left. And I think you might be right about the Ubolts. Thinking I have seen people ask and post about that from time to time. What about the drive shaft? I am sure I have read about that question being asked and answered from time to time here but can't remember. Leaning towards it does not matter. Then there is the whole ABS thing. Thinking 8.25's didn't come with them but 35's did. Just things to think about that popped in my head.

Sure. Why not. Was thinking I would try and hawk the old glass on Craigslist anyway to offset my cost in this upgrade. Thing is I kinda think the bottom of the metal bar that runs along side the little window is a bit rusted and kinda eh. For about 2" at the bottom. Plus you will have to remove the crappy purple tint. According to my build sheet it says: Tinted Rr Drs/Qtr/Liftgate Glass. Frankly I think it is just regular glass. Looking at my '00 parts catalog there are only two choices. Tinted and Privacy. Assume privacy is the darker one. What I bought and am installing. But not really sure about that. I reposted the shot. Is your glass like the bottom ones? Just want to make sure that it will match for you. Also I will take a better picture of the rust issue at the bottom for you to see. Well as best as I can with my itouch. Only thing I have. PM me.

So I got a little more done as far as sound deadening the Jeep goes. So I put a few pieces of the Dynmat in the rear doors. I guess cause the doors are smaller when you rap on them they sound less tinny if at all in most places. Threw a few pieces here and there. Put back on the barrier. Attached the foam to the barrier. Buttoned her up. One thing I did discover. The vapor barriers out of the '97 I took the privacy glass out of are of better quality then the ones in my '00. I kept and used them. They are plastic. Mine or more like plastic paper. Much easier to rip. Had I know and not done the fronts already I would have grabbed and used those from the '97 too.

The only jeeps that got 10" drums were ones marked with the heavy duty brake option. To get this option you either needed the tow pkg or the special service vehicle pkg like for police use.

Yeah mines a plain Jane sport. Power windows, locks, air conditioning, non abs. So I'm safe that to assume I can switch over all brake components when the time comes. Even backing plate from most of my research if need be. Although some said it swapped over some said they had to grind out the opening for the axle some.

You should get the 8.25 backing plates with the axle

Still waiting for my transmission mount to arrive.

USPS tracking gives a clue...

-August 7, 2017, 12:02 pm USPS picked up item BUCKEYE, AZ 85326
-August 7, 2017, 6:48 pm Departed Post Office BUCKEYE, AZ 85326
-August 8, 2017, 9:48 am In Transit to Destination ON ITS WAY TO JUNCTION CITY, OR 97448
-August 9, 2017, 9:48 am In Transit to Destination ON ITS WAY TO JUNCTION CITY, OR 97448
-August 10, 2017, 9:48 am In Transit to Destination ON ITS WAY TO JUNCTION CITY, OR 97448

-Oops, we lied. Your package was abducted by Al Qaeda and we finally got it back
-August 10, 2017, 11:51 pm Arrived at USPS Regional Origin Facility PHOENIX AZ DISTRIBUTION CENTER ANNEX
-August 11, 2017, 8:36 pm Departed USPS Regional Origin Facility PHOENIX AZ DISTRIBUTION CENTER ANNEX
-August 12, 2017, 9:36 am In Transit to Destination ON ITS WAY TO JUNCTION CITY, OR 97448
-August 13, 2017, 1:32 am Arrived at USPS Regional Destination Facility EUGENE OR DISTRIBUTION CENTER

Google maps says it's about 35 miles from Buckeye, AZ to Phoenix. It took three days to travel this 35 miles. Meanwhile, the system continued to insist it was en-route and on schedule. Three days my package floated around in some kind of purgatory, and it's just now getting close. The original "Expected delivery date" was Thursday the 10th. I'll probably see it on the 15th.

Awesome.

:

Today, seeing as I didn't have a transmission mount to replace, I tried tackling some items I've had simmering on the back burner.

Rail shifter, nope, don't have the toggles needed to set up an either/or with the TCU.

Sub & amp, nope, don't have the wiring needed.

So, in the interest of being able to say I did something today...

Plugs, wires, cap & rotor. Nothing particulary alarming about any of these, but I've had the new stuff riding around in the back seat for a couple of months. No reason to rush into this stuff I guess.

Oh, and shot some grease in my ball joints & tie rod ends.
