    That is a XJ. Who gives a shit.....box.
    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to the countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process. The responsibility of the United States in this conflict is to eliminate weapons of mass destruction, to minimize the danger to our troops and to diminish the suffering of the Iraqi peole." - Nancy Pelosi circa 1998

    And your rebuttal Ms. Communist bitch?

    Kraqa, thanks
    "but that interior is way to clean."
    i do detailing on the side too, easy money

    we finally got the new rear D44 under the heep too. ended up having to swap the YJ e-brake cables that were on it with the old XJ ones. the YJ lines were like 2' too long. everything was out so just installed all new brake pads and hardware too for the hell of it.

    while installing the new axle i also noticed a slightly crimped main fuel line ops: (aboot 10-20% flow it looked like)


    bottie fabbed repair was done of course since a new line was $50 from the stealer
    i ended up cutting out about a 2" section w/ a tubing cutter. and i put on a 12" (so it overlapped a good 5"+ each side) 5/16" goodyear rubber fuel line (said 50psi on it) with 4 clamps.



    MORE motormounts went in this week
    lotsa vibes but that is supposed to die down once they break in

    drivers side

    pass side

    looks like the drivers side wears out faster due to excessive header heat, the rubber closest the header was hard and brittle[/QUOTE]

    plus i got a madd pimp new (to me) spare, ProComp 33" X Tizzerain on a chromed 15x8

    replacing my old dick cepeck mud on 15x7

    [the d-c/rim for sale btw, $25+ship]

    lebaron vents were sanded, primed, painted and claer coated. pretty good color match for my rattle can skills. holes still have to be cut + vents installed they are just resting up there




    fuel line repaired


    got some spare 760x axles with hubs as a post christmas gift

    Nice work on the diff cover. Did you do all of that? I want to make a beefy diff cover for my HP 30 and 8.8, but I keep getting over whelmed by the thought of a jigsaw puzzle of cardboard.

    Is that a Trout Insudtries ring?

    Same here. I want to shave my 8.8 but it would require building a custom diff cover :?

    why couldn't you buy a manufactured HD cover, and shave the cover to match the diff?
