No updates recently due to terrible weather here in AZ. I have been collecting parts through the summer and I'm planning some good sh*t for fall.

Re: Project wannabe Jeepspeed

If that's a champion radiator, I'd highly recommend pressure testing it before installing. I had a leak right of the box on mine.

Re: Project wannabe Jeepspeed

Could you send me the part numbers on those shocks?

Im running fox 2.0 performance series remote rests, and want to know what the difference is in what I'm running and what you are.

Re: Project wannabe Jeepspeed

Nice I was just gonna say we installed the champion in my sons MJ last week and it leaks right at the 90degree joint on the filler neck. He had to trim quite a bit to make it fit. The whole top cross member cover lip had to be trimmed off and he cut a clearance hole in the wheel well to fit the trans cooler fitting.

Re: Project wannabe Jeepspeed

I have a Champion in my '89 and have had zero problems with it. Fit as well as the stock radiator I replaced and cools much better. I didn't hook up the internal transmission heat exchanger as I run a large external cooler. I don't worry about warm up times in south Louisiana.

I have to say I'm with Lawagoneer, I've had 2 Champions in 2 separate XJ's and they have been nothing but great for me

I can pull the part numbers off of the boxes when I get home but what is it that you're trying to figure out? These are Factory series I believe.
