    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    All aluminum would be nice. In my research I found that they go for $300-$1000+. Although, I did find this one.

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    I was able to look a little closer at the coolant leak on my XJ. It looks like it's the radiator, not a hose or connection.

    I read all 12 pages of the "Lets talk about radiators" thread and came...

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    After a couple hours of being plugged in, I found that the block heater does work. I turned the key and it fired right up. I let it warm up and took it for a short drive. There was minimal coolant...

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    I went to start my XJ today. 2 days of sitting outside in -28 deg weather. It groaned, but wouldn't spin over fast enough to start. I saw there is a block heater on it, so I plugged it in. As I went...

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    Last Friday, I finally finished fixing the heater in my XJ. I did it outside in the driveway. It was +6 degrees and snowing, but I was able to install the new blower motor and resister. Now I have...

    Re: New House Project

    Is the yellow/orange tubing your water line? Around here, we need to bury our water lines a minimum of 6 feet under ground to keep them from freezing.

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    Over the last couple weeks I was noticing the blower fan making more noise. It also only operates on high and has since I bought it. That is on the list of fixing. Anyhow, the other day when I...

    Re: Guns And Firearms Thread

    Well, I don't shoot competitively. I shoot for practice and I take the defensive pistol classes to keep my skills up. I've taken 5 classes in 3 years. Each class lasts about 5 hrs and uses up 3-400...

    Re: Guns And Firearms Thread

    That's what my defensive pistol class instructor said. He also dissed my 1911. He said every class he taught, the 1911s would fail. Mine didn't, in fact most of the others failed. Mine doesn't even...

    Re: Project Overkill XJ

    The black lower portion of my XJ is kind of ratty looking, so I was thinking of having bed liner sprayed on that area. If I do, I want to do it before the V2 flares are installed. Any Thoughts? Pros...

    Re: Guns And Firearms Thread

    This is one of the rare ones (I think). It's a pre ban open bolt. No firing pin, so to speak. Yes it's fun to shoot but you can't hit :turd: with it.

    So, what you are saying is that I should just buy new spring perches and shock mounts, weld the tubes to the housing and call it good? But the truss looks cool :beer: and all the above is probably...

    Re: 8.8 swap info

    I located a 2001 Explorer 8.8 for $100 locally. It has 373s and limited slip. If I get this 8.8 kit, would I still need to weld the tubes to the housing?

    Yes, I can weld. I own tig, mig and stick welders, but may hire it done anyhow. I found an off road shop not too far away from me (35miles) that will be doing most...

  24. New here. Looking for tips and advice.

    Hello,

    My name is Jody (male). I recently purchased a rust free 96 XJ. It has many miles on it, but no rust. It's a perfect platform for me to build something. I'm not looking to build a rock...
