  1. Didn't get a before but this is after hauling a xj off to scrap.
  2. For sure man but never underestimate the wrinkle beer can look. Just plain cool your almost there lol. Keep her pretty where it counts "mechanically" but let her keep and show off the trophies. With the way you find deals maybe you can have a straight in the stable too. Ditto on the long box. I wanted a short box before I got mine and there's somthing to be sead about being able to have a cross box and still haul a 4 wheeler and all my camping gear.
  3. Cool truck man! Just went through the thread and really glad to see it didn't go the way your last xj did. I bet any thoughts you may of had of getting rid of it during those 4 years of downtime were crushed as soon as you got some seat time again.
  4. I was under the impression unit bearing spacers (to align the u joints with the ball joints) lower wj ball joints due to the different taper and the (caliper spacers to use the 99 and earlier unit bearings) or the (99.5 and up unit bearings without the caliper spacers). Is this wrong? I've mocked it up with unit bearing spacer (forgot were I bought it but it's for this swap), a older unit bearing and 1/4" scrap metal for caliper spacer (because I haven't made the real ones yet) and it looks right to me. I can't figure out how to post pictures. Thanks
  5. In short for WJ brake swap you need; WJ rotors redrilled to 5x4.5, WJ knuckles, WJ brake caliper bracket, WJ brake calipers, WJ pads, JKS weld on unit bearing spacer, 00+ XJ/TJ unit bearings, What is different about the 00+ unit bearings? Thanks
  6. I had a 88 ranger years ago with a "split bench" I think that's what it's called with the fold down arm rest on the center.kinda wounded how one of those would fit? Seemed like the best of both worlds.

    What's it worth?

    Thanks John and 88white I was thinking in that range. Just out of curiosity Does anyone know the core charge for one of these is? I ask because none of the junkyards/rebuild shops around here have one so I can't find what they want for a core and that's pretty much what this is to me.
  9. I have a AX15 internal slave trans I got with my Comanche when I bought it. The p/o like a lot of us was little bit of a parts hoarder and was getting out of the life when I came along. My question is what is one of these worth in unknown condition? The reason I'm asking is a few weeks ago I was at the junkyard and ran into a guy looking for one and I told him if he can't find one he knows is good to get a hold of me and I'd dig this one out of MY hoard pile. Well he called me back tonight so I guess I'm digging tomorrow to see if it's got what he needs. But I don't know what t
  10. Ordered trans shift cable. Had the girlfriend turn it around and back it up to my shop with me picking gears from underneeth. Finished stripping down and cleaning up the 8.8 for it. Maybe posting on here will keep me motivated. Lol
