    Re: New Jeep

    Well one day I'll get myself a nice front bumper with a 2" receiver and a winch setup that I plug into either the rear or front receivers...Then I will be set..Just won't happen anytime soon. Need to focus mainly on the mechanical aspects for now.

    Re: New Jeep

    That's always the best place to start Mike,I don't even care what my truck looks like. It's how well it runs,and holds up on the trail that count. When you do get a winch make it one like mine...OVER-KILL. that thing will lift the truck up in the air.That same stump I pulled out,I tried getting it with my winch first,the winch could do the job,but this gnarly old thing wasn't budging and with the Emergency brake set and all four tires blocked,it kept pulling the truck to wards the stump ;D I had whole logs under the two front tires and chock blocks under the rear,and the break was in tune,all you could hear is tires dragging across the pavement.er,er,er,er

    Re: New Jeep

    Well I opted not to get the firestone tires once I got a price on them... I am going to go with a Michelin tire called the Mud King MT. It's not as aggressive but aggressive enough for what I need and about $200 cheaper...The firestone's fully installed after tax was over $700....

    Re: New Jeep

    Yeah Kele I am not worried about the looks outside..Just need a good solid front and rear bumper so I can mount a winch and finish up the frontend/suspension work. I also plan to tuck away money each month so that next year I can order myself a new crate motor and tranny to install...Probably do that next summer around say August 09...THen she will be in the shape I need her in..Once I graduate from college I'll get me a daily driver for work and then add another 2" lift to the truck using new coil springs and new leaf springs..

    Re: New Jeep

    I'm not sure,but I think you can just ad a leaf to the rear or two,Makes them stiffer,and you may be able to get an insert on the front coils,or you may just have to get bigger ones...That crate Motor set up will be the SHIAAAT. Thats the only way to go,don't let anyone talk you out of that,Rebuild will never compare,unless you have a nasscar Company do it

    Re: New Jeep

    Well I already added 1.5" rear shackles and front spacers for a total of 2" front and rear. My plan is to add a new set of 2" lift leaf packs and 2" lift fron tcoil springs. I will never do an add-a-leaf setup..Once you break the leaf pack it'll never be the same and will sag eventually. New leaf packs are by far the best way to go.

    Yeah a crate motor and tranny will run me about $1600 then I just have to install it and will be good to go for some at least 200k+ miles..

    Re: New Jeep

    Or more on those buggers if you maintain them every 2500-3000 miles,Keep a good Fuel filter and air filter in it and do you trany fluid every 20,000-30,000 miles,I believe thats about the specks for that,We used to have an old Wagoner with Quadratraction in the late 70's I think it was one of the first ones like it they came out with,we kept it a few years,which was good for my dad,he got a new car about every two years. That one and an old Chevy Truck he kept for a long time,didn't use it much,but hey...it was a Chevy :,I cant remember,my dad bought it with about 10,000 miles on it.It ran great and went where ever you needed it to.
    What year did you say your was?
    I also would rather put new leafs on it,other than mess with the old ones,like the crate motor,it's worth it.
