I agree. It is nearly free swap and it will make your Jeep more capable.
Is the XJ axle the same width and everything? Keep the shafts if they are so if you break one you have a spare.Thoughts on a low buck limited slip in the D35?
Got a lead on a OEM LS set up from my friend that owns a garage, he got a customer vehicle in Jeep XJ that has it in the rear and likely the thing is leaving his shop for a trip to the scrappers. If thats the case he said I can pull the rear carrier.
Since my wife and I increased the worlds population this year the jeep budget was cut to basically $0 so I am keeping that D35 for a while longer. But for basically the cost of diff fluid, a new clutch pack, and some time (free) I could get a limited slip in the rear to help out with the front being the D30 with a locker... Or do you think Ill blow it up? Running 33*10.5s and I am not a hard wheeler, more of a good line, light throttle type.
Take the whole axle. Welding brackets is cheaper than a carrier swap. PLUS if it kablooms fixing it is as easy as putting in the old one.thats the case he said I can pull the rear carrier.
I got a stock lower steering shaft when I needed one. I figured it's just the input to power steering, so not a lot of force and wear.Who here has used the borgenson steering shaft? To damper or not to damper? Does it depend on what your Jeep came with or just what you want?
Except when you burn up a ps pump in the big boy rocks and have to turn 40s manually. Lots of force. Lots of wear.I got a stock lower steering shaft when I needed one. I figured it's just the input to power steering, so not a lot of force and wear.
I got my 8274 back from my dad and one of my upcoming projects is dropping it between the frame rails. I think I’m going to meld the metalcloak bumper and the 8274 mount together some howI think I finally got it mounted for good. Just have to find some time to spool on the new 125' cable and mount the in cab control switch. I love/hate how much real estate this beast takes up.
Awesome! Cant wait to see your progress with it. Its crazy how much you can do to one of these. I already upgraded the brake retainer and clutch handle. Eventually Ill upgrade to the new motor and albrite contactor but these work for now. I had thought about sinking it into the frame rails as well but I dont think Ill benefit enough to justify the extra work. The 4banger really doesnt generate much heat. I just melded the 8274 cradle my buddy made to my old harbor freight winch plate and called it a dayI got my 8274 back from my dad and one of my upcoming projects is dropping it between the frame rails.
