  1. I mounted the front notch custom fender flares then Had to get some fire wood. So driveway stuntin it is you have to fit the flares a little before they fit just right but they are super nice, easy to install and you can customize them anyway to fit your needs for the most part. I slid the front forward an inch and the rear back an inch havent got it back out of the garage since I got the back on. Still need to paint them black
  2. I don’t have the part number anymore. But I do remember that I just googled lower window trim to find and the. Did the same with the runner trim. Found them both for less then $20 a piece
  3. Stretched the mjs legs a bit at work the other day to get a few measurements and make sure my trim job was sufficient to clear for the mild wheelin trip I was taking today. From the bottom of the tire to the ground measured 27.5. I think it would go more but the shock was pretty maxed on the drivers side and I don’t wanna destroy them right away. It never picked a tire off the ground completely. There is enough room to stock your hand all the way around the tire. well I didn’t buy bump-stops before our adventure today and I crammed the wheel up into the fender sliced the tire really good and bent a the fender way up. I managed to not take any pictures today. I was to excited about being out. We did 150 miles. some interstate a lot of backroads, a few miles of wheelin to more service roads and back. Then stopped at Lowe’s and bought a bunch of lumber covered in mud. I did get a pic of my brother-in-law’s xj on 35s
  4. ordered fender flares from notch customs the m max. They are the best looking flares other then the flat tube ones in my opinion. Notch customs has them on backorder at the moment but I’m hoping I can get the template for them so I can go ahead and cut the fenders. For now it’s hauling wood and daily driving
  5. I drove the truck to work today. 20 minutes each way. No stabilizer. Worn out swampers. 4th gear is everything you want to keep it in your lane. I took all back roads. it did really good actually. 4th gear you have to drive it, it’s not awful but you gotta pay attention for sure. With nothing slowing the steering down it wanders a bit. But it cruises 3rd like a stock truck. Still has plenty of power with the 4.10 gears. I wanna go even lower with the gearing but it’s a start. My stock power steering pump is feeling it though. Over heating and spitting fluid out the cap.
  6. I am currently running 37s and I drilled tapped the box already with intentions to go to a bigger box later. I will look into the smaller pulley for sure. That’s a great idea
  7. On the west Texas Offroad website their is a write up of how to make it flow more by drilling’s out the fitting. I have an extra stock pump that I am gonna try and do this to to see how much it helps. The write up also states that if you drill out the fitting to much you can blow the seals out of the box. thats nuts
  8. If you alter the 97+ harness to the stock MJ plug I should still fit in some relays somewhere.. but where exactly or should I skip trying to fit this to my plug and just build a harness that plugs into the factory headlight plug and just uses the head plug off of one for the high and low beam signal
  9. Do you have to upgrade the steering box because of the fittings?
  10. I have never thought of looking at them online... I feel rather dumb for that one
  11. I have a cooler with a inline filter attached to it. So does the wj pump push more fluid? I am headed to the junk yard this week and will see about the Dakota pumps. Is the bracketry the same? I work at a machine shop so I can machine a new mount
  12. Has anyone done it with a stock pump? How much fluid does a stock MJ pump move? Is it worth doing? The reason for wanting to revalving the pump is to flow more fluid. I am planning on running hydro assist and have already drilled and tapped my steering box.
  13. I finally installed some door parts. The smokers vent windows are well worth it the time to pull them Out of the pickapart I found a thread on here with the part number for the lower window trim. And have the runner trim on the way because the passenger one is shot. The drivers side is really good also I learned a lesson on welding bungs. I was trying to shorten my tie rod and I think I got a bb into the threads and didn’t know it. Of course it’s the left hand thread. I pulled all the threads out of the bung trying to get it out. i was able to mill the end of the hiem off at work and just cut the old hiem off and reweld a new bung in
