  1. Pete M

    I'm back!

    you don't have to do the whole conversion at once. I'm running an open rad (with rad cap) with the closed system.
  2. If you can find my thread about my '90, you should find pics of what I nipped off the arms. not because I needed to, but because I wanted to for that theoretical maximum flex I never needed. I'm not the only one that's done the conversion and I'm not sure I've heard of anyone else trimming them like I've done. you should be just fine.
  3. I had 3.92 gears in my Dakota RT and happily traded any potential issues at highway speeds for the insane grunt at low speeds. torque is fun and more is better
  4. what do you mean by "substantial cutting and grinding"?
  5. are you simply missing the openings for the clamps? you can drill those out yourself with a big hole saw.
  6. yup. what I'm saying is, don't pick numbers that you think are some sort of "limit". your Jeep has no problem hitting them allllllll day long.
  7. dates and time and whatnot are all overrated.
  8. I think red is the constant power wire. tan would be the switched power.
  9. a 4.10 8.25 can be found under 4cly gas KJs too. car-part.com can help find them. I just brought home a pair of 4.10 diffs for my Libby. the 03+ axle is around 2" wider. don't remember the exact amount but I can measure my new-to-me 8.25 once I get how this weekend. Or if you can find the thread I did years back about the then newfound info after I measured my 06. and there's nothing wrong with 3k rpms. the engine will handle it just fine. remember that 2.5/auto XJs came with 4.56 gears.
  10. there are a few LS swap build threads i the Epic Tech subforum.
  11. love it! totally makes me want to get another XJ, but I'll have to make do with the KJ for now.
  12. until now I never realized how much I needed a 25,000# winch
  13. through amazon. they should show up at this link: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=w_bl_sl_s_ap_web_7141123011?ie=UTF8&node=7141123011&field-brandtextbin=Bedford+Falls+Collection
  14. I'm pretty sure I've asked this before but couldn't find it. Does anyone know of an identifying stamp or tag on the back half of an MJ? I'd love to track down something on my trailer. I have the rear frame and bed to work with.
