You could also try tapatalk. Thats what i use. It hosts the pics for me right from my phone and it will resize them for you as you post. Gives you three size options too.
Yea I know you can get a membership but why strip that capability on a forum. This is the only one that does that.

Rig looks awesome!! How much did your shackle relo kits add in lift? about to put mine on and not sure which front coil to pair up with them. I have extended shackles as well.
The bolt on relocation kits add about 1-2" of lift. How much lift are you going for?

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

Ok, We're getting this thing going again!

Ordered some injector spacers so I can use the stock truck injectors with the LS6 fuel rail. These weren't available when I first started the project but would have made things a lot easier.

I also ordered an Art Carr shifter....Lets see if we can make it work. I ordered the stock rock crawler pattern (i can go from drive to reverse in a straight shot).

got 4.5" on there now using a full spring pack and stock shackles. Need to get to 6.5" in hopes of clearing 37s. Been told it will net 2" with extended shackle, so was just confirming...

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

The art car shifters are awesome! And I love my Novak radiator, it works extremely well with the V8. I'm running it in a closed system with an expansion tank. The new rig is awesome BTW!

When you want to be someone you drive a lifted JK, when you already know who you are you drive an old XJ.

I'm excited to get it. I hope it can keep up in the Vegas heat. I'll be running it as an open system just like the stock XJ.

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

I have towed in 110 heat with hills and it did fine. Running two 10" spal fans a a small cheap 8" fan. Rarely are both spams on and I run around 200f. Also I found that a small oil cooler really helps with the overall temp, something to consider....

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

Ordered:
- Fuel system check valve (I noticed longer than normal cranking times before)
- More -6 AN hose so I can re-do a few lines (Novak radiator also doesnt have a transmission cooler so I'll have to re-do those lines.
- New fuel pump module (might as well fix it now because I'm basically re-starting this swap)

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

Ordered a bunch of wiring and connectors.

Installed the Walbro 255 fuel pump installed in the module. Just need to drill a hole for the fuel return. I'll do that when I'm ready to do the install. Just trying to get as much stuff set up right now as possible.

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

I laid my first ever weld last night. Its just on some thin 16g stuff I had laying around from my overhead switch panel. I dont know a whole lot about welding but I didnt think it looked too bad.


Here's what the fuel pump assembly will look like (pretty much factory)

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

Received the Winters shifter. I think I can make it work without too much fuss.

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

So I may also switch over to a custom gauge cluster. What do you guys think?

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

I have that same exact shifter for the 4l60e. Direct bolt in. I vote custom cluster that way you can make it the way you want with the gauges you want.
