www.car-part.com You should be able to find what you need there.

I'd definitely pay even $200-$300 more just to not have to do gears. Between the gears, bearings, and almost the full day it'll...

I've been looking at doing something similar with a handful of parts from various vehicles and then just buy what I need/don't have. I'm pretty sure the system as a whole will not work but you can...

Yeah I didn't even change the liner when I welded up my rock sliders. I just lowered the wire feed tension so the wire would slip instead of bird nesting and tried to keep the gun wire fairly...

It's funny because even though I have the big gas guzzling V8, I'm usually not struggling for fuel offroad even on long days on the trail. You may be in a similar situation but with my LS engine, I'm...

Where to start... Intake temps stayed down but mpg's never went up. I can't remember the whole chain of events but around this time, the torque converter lock up didn't work on the 3rd transmission....

Is this thread making anyone else feel super lucky and/or super paranoid? Between stealing stuff under the hood, stealing radios, doors, windows, catalytic converter, and just stealing the whole...

IMO some of the best deterrents to theft is just making it weird and non standard. My key can lock and unlock the steering column but I have a separate ignition switch and starter button. If you want...

The ideal solution is a separate crossmember but when you're trying to go a totally flat skid even with a 1" BL, things start getting real tight. I run a flat skid. My first flat skid was with 3/16"...

I think you missed all of my points. First, getting 50% more torque and power with a turbo is pretty easy no matter what engine you add it to. That's what turbos do... It's not a magical equation...

I'm not a diesel guy but I can see their worth in the offroad world. That said, I can't even see the worth in using that diesel in a Jeep. The whole point of the diesel is big low end torque but that...

The engine swap law regarding swapping an older engine into a newer chassis is an EPA law. The fine is $2500 and it's all about emissions. So realistically, if you don't have emissions no one would...

Just for the sake of argument... spoolgun or not, it's the same thing as running wire through your standard MIG gun. The only difference is you're holding a bigger gun and the wire has less chance of...

As I talked about in the PM, I think your brake system is fine but your booster just doesn't have the power/performance you're expecting. IMO the only real solution is a dual diaphragm booster. If...

In order to get the engine out, you pretty much have to remove everything except the head to replace the head gasket. IMO, I'd just do the head gasket. It can be done in your garage after work one...

I agree with your logic. If there are events in the near future, change the gearset now and plan for an axle swap in the near future. Maybe keep your eyes on the used market. If it's possible, maybe...
