Well, got the broken spring off. Going to lkq Tuesday for new set of springs for a spare..hah..who needs spare leaf springs??
Pounded some of the tree dings out, mounted a bucket seat for harnesses in it...uggg dont like it.. Uncomfortable..

Broke spring


Seat..:thumbdown:



Hope this week to get some 1.25" dom for my corner guards, for a little more body protection..
and start picking up odds n ends link parts for beefing up my lowers on the front, and possibly rears..whoot..
Still no motor sale, really wanna get the 6.0, not gunna do any loan for it, plus i am assuming my motor will sell faster if the buyer could hear it run, and drive..
Blessing is close....need to get that done soooooooon..

I guess all i want to do us upgrade...current motor runs awesome, has plenty of power, and has really never let me down.
BUTT! I think a 6.0 will really turn the rig into something i will really enjoy beating the snot out of..lol

So if it sells, rock on! If not no biggie.

Id really like to a 6.0 in it by sept 29th though, for our badlands trip.
We will c..

Nuff rambling i need a beer..

Why don't you practice putting a motor in and put my 5.3 in the yota. 5.3 - 6.0 it's basically the same thing

What is this??? We just picked up a 5.3 and associated trans/tcase and harness for a swap into a 1994 4-cylinder YJ and I was wondering where to send the harness to get stripped down, where to send the computer to get flashed/set-up... Big, you can expect a PM!!!

Wowza!!! Had to blow the dust off this thread! Been a while, haven't done alot of mods/fixing on the jeep lately...
Recently swapped in some 2.5"x 16" fox shocks, thanks chad cooper, sorry alboy..tehehee.
I tipped them about 10° forward so there is smoother less bindy travel at full droop.

Bad pic i know..ill get some close ups soon.

Im also installed a new push button starter switch, sorry no picks..
Its the small things in life..hahaha.

Also installed a fancy cigarette lighter/acc outlet..its supposed to be "weather proof" we shall c.
ill throw up pix Tuesday..

Also working on making a mount that will hold my phone to make some awesome video!!! Tore a rearview mirror apart, and attaching a phone clip to the mirror mount...awesome.
This too will get some picks Tuesday, eventhough its half done.


Pretty sure the motor is sold too...for real this time!!!
Itll be in "tweaked" erin earlys old juggy. Hahaha.
