I got the inside of the MJ lined with some Dynomat. Man I didn't realize how loud that truck was...

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I've never had any 1st hand experience with it... Is it worth the money?

For me, it absolutely was. I have all the interior out waiting on new carpet so it just seemed like a good time. I can't tell you how "tinny" the inside was with the inside gutted but now it's nice. I can actually hear my cheap radio without having to turn the volume to 40. I plan on a decent sound system also, so I thought this would be added insurance against the rattling that comes from low bass and with a 20+ year old truck, I know there would be rattling.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

replaced an axle ujoint yesterday and drove my jeep for the first time in about a week. i am getting some very ominous noises from my rear drums, so i will be snatching some ZJ rear discs ASAP. i figure i'll stick them to the dana 35 and continue my experiment to see how long i can drive and wheel it until it breaks. when they do break, i can stick them to an 8.25. i don't plan to go bigger than 33's at any point, so i think an 8.25 with 4.10's or 4.56's will be fine when i get to that point.
i have also done a little work to my beetle, but i'm sure nobody here cares about that, lol....

What year is the beetle?

I haven't got to the point that I miss mine yet but I'm sure I'll wish I never sold it one day.

You'll have to forgive the mess at the old junky house but this is the rail that I had. Had a 2110 in it. I sold it before I finished with it.



This was the bug the day I sold it. I hadn't put the interior in it or the fenders on it. That's all it needed to be finished. It had a 1776 in it. Air ride all the way around and 18s. lol



It sits low... ^ It's sitting on 4x4 blocks in this picture...
