    Sticky: Re: V8 ZJ Tie Rod Upgrade

    I did the whole setup from the TRE at the pitman arm down afew years back. It's still one of my favorite mods in terms of easy of installation, performance, price, and ease of replacement parts.

    I've got a 232 out of a CJ, and I'm seriously thinking of building a 4.2 mini stroker.

    The V8 ZJ driver's side TRE is the same size as the one for the pitman arm. A stock XJ driver's side TRE has a smaller shank. Plus with the V8 setup, you can adjust tow with an adjuster sleeve,...

    Re: XJ TALK SHOW! Give Away! NOCO Genius Boost

    Batteries are one of those things that I normally keep up on and buy the premium ones and replace them every few years. Even at that I always carry a set of jumper cables in the back of the Jeep.

    I assumed they were just part of the backing plate. I got the plates and brackets as a unit.

    One of the big secrets is that Moog makes most suspension/steering parts that are store brands. I found that out when I worked at an Advance about 10 years ago.

    Is that the little washer things with the fingers cut into them?

    Re: What did ya find under the tree?

    Aye. From a 79 I believe. But it's got to be better than the 232 I have now.

    This one ran when a buddy pulled it last summer. It's cheaper than what it would cost me to get the 232 running.

    I didn't think it was possible to use a 7 tub on a 5. Maybe that explains why the wheels are not centered in the wheel wells.

    It's funny that you mention the tub. Somebody else told me it looked like a 76 tub. Atleast that means the 78 CJ7 windshield I picked up should fit. I thought 76+ frames were wider in the rear...
