Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Steering is finally going out, time for some new rod ends and track bar bushings. Hit a pot hole on I-70 on the way back from Buena Vista doing about 80 and all hell broke loose. She’s got the wobbles now.

I figured we’d be able to hit the like button on posts by now. Lol
Back in the day we had a reputation button...kind of like a "like" button. The problem was that the members were not adult enough to not make a game of screwing with it and we had to remove it.

Mallcrawlin had this feature too... I think the game became who could become the biggest ass and have the most red bubbles

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Going to WJ steering and need 16" wheels so after 16 years I finally got wheels with the correct backspacing.

I like my wj steering. If I had to do it again, I'd go one-ton for $100 more. Just go one ton. https://www.cavfab.com/XJ-Steering_c_223.html

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Finally got my project MJ back in a garage to finish. Got a ways to go but happy to have a spot to f around with it. After moving and the cluster f of last year it's progress. Currently has waggy 44's, 4.27's with ARB front and Aubrun rear, 3 link, ax15, 242, renix/HO hybird. Need to finish up the wiring, suspension, brakes, and bunch of other little things.

Thanks, no idea when I'm going to work on it but hopefully here soon. Yeah moved back to Littleton. Bunch of reasons why and while I miss certain things nice to be back. New neighbor has a XJ on 37s in shambles in his garage. He got burnt out on it so maybe I'll convince him to get his junk going when I got mine. Always told him my garage will gladly accept a donation......

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Got my AirBake heat shield on and making progress on the insulation upgrade on the interior. Killmat with some insulation I bought years ago. Vac and wash the carpets and seats. Ordered some wrap for the muffler. Hope it all helps the noise and heat, I was shocked how hot the floor got when the carpet was out!
