  4. I just picked up a 88 short bed wit a full 99 xj swap noes, doors drive train, dash an wiring. My prolblem at the moment is none of the body harnes is hooked up exsept for the 2 doors an the kid cut a bunch of wires.... The windows don't work either. My question is antidisestablishmentarianism year body harnes will work to swap in a uncut one. I see I can unhook it at the bottom of the dash on both sides Currently it's all 99 xj. Thanx

  6. Well I got a line on the axles... Match set front an rear 60s for free! Just need to disk brakes. I plan on leaving them stock an just weld the rear spiders.
  7. I exploded my from Dana 30 doin mud drags. I got a line on a pair of 78 f250 Dana 60s. Has anyone Swaped in a front Dana 60? I plan on using them full width. Trying to stay in a cheap budget. The only mounts I can realy find are t & t customs. Is there any other good kits? I also wana upgrade to a long ARM but don't wana spend crazy money.
  8. Been bussy with other projects but this is how the MJ has been all summer... Rocking no doors an fresh front fender cuts So much for keeping the body dent free.... I endded up grabbing this 80 chevy k10 reasently sitting on 42s. powerd by a fuel injected 355. But soon traded it for this 97 Chevy 1500 with a dana 60 SAS. 350 5speed

Gess it didnt like a rocky hill climb holding rev limmitor 2nd gear, lots of flexing, and jumping some other small hill climbs... I drove it home after the front drive shaft came off the front diff. Found the control arms destroyed when i went to fix the u joint. my Mj to the right an my buddys XJ with a Claton 8in long arm front an rear to the left

  12. I m 6'4" and my current MJ is the moast roomy small reg cab truck ive been in. But deff the bench seat is a million times better!!!! I didnt like the way my factory buckets were placed in my 90. But both 86 and 88 ive owned an currently drive, the stock bench seats is verry comfy an i can evean strech out my leg. Has more room than the cab of my 07 Kenworth tri axle! :cheers:
  13. I hooked my ele fan to a toggle switch in the cab. Along with a 160 thermostat my jeep runs real cool. Only use the eletric fan when I'm in the woods. Still plan on puttin vents in my hood. Acualy used the tranny power toggle. haha since i have swaped to a 5 speed. On power my fan is on.
  14. I did the swap on my 88. I needed a new radiator, and scored a used 1 out of a 93 XJ for free. It worked our great an took a lot less time to fill an get the air out. Just bolted right in and removed the fill bottol on the firewall.
