88 Sport Low N Slow

Recommended Posts

Alright guys I'm beginning to suspect this site is dead but I'm going to do an update anyways. lol

 

Swapped in a high pinion 30 out of a 99 XJ, and did a rugged ridge wan tan steering setup. Drives exceptional now! Waiting on my core 4x4 trac bar to arrive. Also completed my 8.8 swap. Riddler cover and 2" wheel spacers in the rear until I get some wheels with some decent offset.

No pictures of it with the wheel spacers on yet, Like i said its a temporary fix to a permanent problem... Its driving perfectly now. Very tight and fun to drive at highway speeds now. Hahaha. At this point just need to do fenders and I'm golden like a shower.

Moved out to Bend in central Oregon. Much better work that pays way better. Been here about six months now. A lot has been done. It’s been a long while since I’ve updated.

Got these amazon LED headlights. I hate them cosmetically but man they sure are nice for driving at night. They are DOT approved.

Boss asked me if I could drive my truck for work. Next thing I know I’m driving two hours out to Christmas valley with like thirty miles of this. There were some puddles also. And some decent mud one of the two days I had to go.

I ended up buying the jcr front unibody tie in brackets. The warn bumper I bought didn’t have the frame horn tie ins with it. I guess that’s ok since I only paid 250 for it. 😂😂. I finished it last night but until I get home from work these are the only pictures I have. I flipped the inner tie in brackets so they point out, they almost line up with the factory warn holes. But that’s ok I’m gonna weld them on anyways.

Got home and toke some pictures of the tie in brackets and how they line up with the warn bumper. I'm

gonna bolt them together and then weld them together. I’ll probably never take it apart anyways... 😂😂😂 I didn’t need the jcr brackets on the inside of the frame horns because i have those warn brackets, which happen to be way more beefcake then even the jcr setup. Whoda thought based on the 1 million pound bumper.

It was a spur of the moment decision. I was sitting there thinking why couldn’t I save money and not get these two brackets. Then I thought maybe these will just bolt in if I flip them. Almost but still gotta drill holes and weld. 😑

As usual didn’t stop to take pics while installing but this is the boostwerks 231 t case shift linkage. I ended up using the 3/4” drop option and the middle slot on my application. Which is 4.0, 99 ax15, 01 231 with no drop bracket stock positioning.

Added a stock Napa replacement stabilizer. I havnt used one in ten years but since moving to bend, they are actually worth the money.... I never noticed a difference with or without a stabilizer until having a road that was straight for more then a mile without turning at all. When you get 30 mph winds hitting you sideways they actually do help...

Harbor freight had a 20% off coupon today so I went and bought one of their new ZXR series winches. This is the third harbor freight winch I have bought so far and have never had problems. The first one I rear ended someone and demolished the magnets inside of it. The second one was sold with my old wj. And this one now. I managed to hide the selenium box under the radiator. Luckily I don’t have a mechanical fan there anymore. 😂 also added the bolts from the jcr brackets to the warn bumper. Gina weld it soon but I at least have enough piece of mind now to where I can use the winch.

Toke a minute to walk the trails I didn’t want to do alone and get some pictures so people know what’s out here. These two pictures are taken from above and below the same spot.
