  1. in that case I wouldn't worry about it, if your camber is that far off you probably have some serious axle warpage.
  2. usually adjustable ball joints are for super difficult to align trucks, unless your lifted super tall all you really need is either adjustable upper control arms or adjustable lowers, preferable both.
  3. That looks so rad! I wish I had the time or money to restore or even just fix up a classic like that. Good luck I hope to see more!
  4. I'm not so much worried about the cat, we don't have emissions up here and I don't really want to spend a few hundred bucks on something ill end up ripping off here in a few years when I swap it. But if you know what muffler you got that would be sweet, if not ill probably just see what I can find locally.
  5. Decided to try and fix my loud exhaust after work this afternoon, turns out the cat is completely empty. I also used a borescope and the muffler also looks empty. That would explain why its so damn loud. Anyone know any mufflers that will make the 2.5 sound even kind of ok? 4 bangers are pretty much impossible to make sound good but anything would be better than what its at right now.
  6. I'm not sure on the year range but some of the newer xj's had a better set of axles you might be able to get from a junkyard. If I remember right they were 1 piece and had bigger u joints, I wanna say they switched around 96ish?? I'm sure there is information somewhere I just can't remember where I saw it. If you can find some of those you can get a kit with the CAD block off plate and the right seas very cheap. EDIT: the years for those axles are 95-99 xj's.
  7. Maybe if a bring a few tubs of Vaseline whenever I go camping I can make it work. I think I'm just gonna go for it, I could use a new rear window anyways.
  8. Man this stuff always scares me, at least your not at a total loss and got some of it back. Most of the time it just disappears and you never hear anything after.
  9. Hey so I was looking into getting a rear slider window (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004ARJXUM/ref=crt_ewc_title_dp_4?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2VNERJJQ7ERIT) but I'm curious how far the slider opens, I'm looking for something I can use as a passthrough between a shell and the cab during the winter so I don't have to go out in the cold at 4 AM in the middle of the woods. Does anyone who has this window know if that's possible? I'm not a very large guy, about 5' 9" with a 32 inch inseam. Also I've seen the fitment seems hit or miss based on what I can find, is this just installation err
  10. Got some better pics of the new seats, also took it through some mud
  11. Got to take her out this weekend, 70 degrees and sunny was perfect for rolling the windows down and mobbing down some nasty muddy dirt road. Not my greatest photo's but hey its all I got Also got the new seats put in that my Grandma hooked me up with, she added some padding on the inside of the cover which almost makes up for the awful control arm angles. Seriously a massive improvement, hell they are more comfortable than my Dads 2014 JK or our new 2021 RAM 2500 truck we are using at work. Seriously excited to get more done with this truck, I
  12. Ok turns out the motor might actually not be blown up, this truck is giving me mixed messages and I'm not sure what to think. I guess I'm just gonna use it and hope it doesn't actually blow up. maybe ill try and take it out in the dirt soon and use it for what I built it for.
  13. Novak even sells a brand new ax-15 for about 1600, no way it should cost that much.
  14. I found this kit awhile back (https://www.ocautocarpets.com/wn-product/door-kit-10pcs-27830/) I haven't bought them so I can't say how the quality is but the price isn't bad. From what it looks like you might need to take the door apart to replace a few of the seals but it isn't very hard on these trucks.
