  1. Power to weight for TDIs is incredible. Definitely following, and best of luck! Post some photos of the mounts, super interested in what you go with.
  2. Its a RWD 5 speed lol. And the steering wheel is not available. looks like 88mjsally has you covered!
  3. Cheap is relative. But in terms of value its not beat up or anything. He says it runs and drives. Might go take a look myself ;)

  5. Why not do a 606 or TDI swap? You have the 90s Jeep Cherokees with the VM 2.5 why not just swap that entire drivetrain over? They are very good engines as well and should bolt in relatively easily.
  6. Lol, I buy it from my local exhaust guy, very reasonable. anywhere along the underside you might see a 3" pipe not clear?
  7. Gotcha, it sounds amazing and lets the engine breathe so much better. Also turbo back is great. I was wondering because I would love to do the same on my comanche.
  8. 10-4 Good buddy. Hard to find (Unique) interior or common as grey interiors?
  9. What size pipe is that? 2.5"? I would like to do a 3" straight back with V-bands like in my YJ.
  10. After talking with some glass guys, I decided its easier to do just a new rear window rather than pick and pull from one carcass to another lol. Price for this one is $250 picked up, you remove it. Sliding rear window, latch is missing, needs some tlc. But not broken or cracked. I believe it has to be removed very carefully as the gaskets are not available anymore. Will update with photos upon request. Located in 30542. *I have been asked by multiple people about the rear window, Yes I will ship on your dime. Yes you will have to cover the removal bill. I do not have time or patienc
  11. Let me know if you still need that bushing made, I have some extra ones lying around, cheaper to by boxes of 5 than a single piece. I bored mine to 3/4" but I could also do it for the 19/32" shaft. Doing the same swap in mine, curious to see how you overcome the steering & track bar issue.
  12. Pete, those bits are a real hassle, used em before tried em again, you gotta be super gentle and take your time lol I drill pilot holes for the tip so the cutter doesnt walk everywhere. If I had the patience I would use them but I prefer my method alot better New fender is in place, got dark before I could finish but its nice and square. Also picked up the 14ga sheet metal so the floor repairs are next. Welding in the dark with only the glow of molten steel is not ideal but no porosity or separation. Really need to get a TIG setup down the road. Stick/MIG
