    Work started on Sunday. Easy job first, got the wire switched for Dyneema rope.


    Then the proper work started, with the norm for Jeeos. Rear damper top mount bolts seizing/breaking, and after much swearing the dampers and sway bar parted company.


    Next on the list was the rear flexi hose, it was at this point the Jeep chucked a proper tantrum. The upshot of that being, it's now going to need all the hard brake lines replaced along with the extended flexis.
    This may take some time...........

    No, you could do that. Just make sure you get it welded to the frame and sides so it will be part of the structural integrity of the unibody

    Safer if it breaks (no whip back) much lighter, a lot easier to handle, and size for size, much stronger than wire.

    I picked up another Dana 44 from an 88 XJ. This one already has a disc brake setup installed on it. It has 3.54 gears and a limited slip in it. It has the Ford Explorer 8.8 brakes on it.

    Just make sure you never break an axle shaft. Have you ever priced the replacements on those?

    Im trying to trace out my vacuum lines. my cruise control and vents have stopped working. now i using my sun visor to direct cold air at me. ive heard that there is a reservoir under the front bumper on the passengers side. i found it and a two hoses connected to a T. the T has one open plug for lack of a better word. one of the lines goes to the back of the reservoir and the other follows the passenger side of the engine compartment and i lose it on the fire wall. Any advice?http://www.xjtalk.com/images/smilies/bang.gif

    If that ball has a leak, a common thing it needs to be plugged up or replaced. The symptoms you describe are typical of a vacuum leak and it is generally the hoses or reservoir

    Looks pretty good.. I wonder what it'd look like with the expanded metal going all the way across the headlights and grille... But I think that does look good like you did it... and should keep from having debris hit your lights... I've seen some put it right on the lights, and think the way you have it would seem to give that buffer zone if needed and protect better... Love the front plate too!!
