Stop trying to do it half assed on a minimum budget. You won't get there.

I know what I want my end build to be I just don't want to keep it as is until then. Looking for the best route to take after a stroker, regear or 241 I'll be happy and save my money for the end result. I go to school and I have a good job but only a apprentice atm. Next step is a house and I have no student debt. Although not dead on overall good advice

I do not. I know I can't afford a 5.3, atlas or 1 ton axles right now but doesn't mean I can't afford a stroker, rubi tcase or regear. I make decent money thank you lol

I considered suggesting this post, but I've realized this kid is as retarded as skooterbuilt and listens at about the same level as well. Seriously look at the parralells of these two fucktards, skooter dreamed huge living in his parents basement using "school" and what not as an excuse as to why he never finished anything, or did anything with all the posts he started and shit he collected. He now owns a home and still, has a bunch of unfinished shit.

This retarded makes posts about everything in the world, and like skooter does none of it, at least he hasn't posted pictures of his shit in a million peieces yet.

We're wasting keystrokes here.

Send me a quote and I'll see when I can make it happen. I have to rebuild my motor and I just ordered parts for a flat skid.

Any money you spend that isn't going to be reused is wasted money. You somehow can't get that through your thick ass skull. If you want a 5.3 but can't afford it, using money that could be put toward the 5.3 on another engine that you aren't going to reuse on your final build isn't saving you anything. It's waste. You might make good money but you're dumb as shit.

This is a discussion for another thread. We can discuss a super dana 35, a dana 44 out of a cherokee, tj, fullsize, ford 9" (eb and fullsize) an 8.8, dana 60, 14 bolt, dana 70, and all variations of each and which one would be the most illogical (the one this knucklehead would pursue) and which would make the most sense (and why it won't work for this knucklehead and his perceived budget)

You forgot CJ AMC 20. If you upgrade the shafts and add all the TJ brackets, some will argue that it is stronger than a Dana 44. Oh, might need spacers to make up the width.

But a Wagoneer AMC 20 would have the factory upgraded axles.

This sounds like a good option. It should definitely be included in the discussion.

I agree but my motor smokes and needs to rebuilt or replaced. I might keep it as is or do a small stroker depending on the difference in price. I won't know until I tear it apart.

My rear axle is fine just was unsure whether 4.56s in my axle or 4.88s in a HP would be better

Holy fukc reading your first page of threads started, it took you over a year to finally get a Jeep, with about 40 threads on lifts and MPG before that. Jesus Cam you really can't make up your mind can you

I will do you a solid and save you $4000-$7000 right now. You ready for this?





Rebuild your shitty motor and leave it alone! I know its cool as fukc to have a v8 in your TJ but it will lead to even more broken shit and more indecision by yourself on what to do next. I still have the 4.0 and somehow manage to wheel wherever and however I'd like. Proven to me yet again last weekend while plowing through 3' of snow. See pics and video section for proof. /mind blown

on top of the 4-7k tab just saved you I will save you another $400-2000.

Don't rebuild your motor, quit crying about your small penis and the fact your motor "smokes", realize 90% of the 4.0's out there smoke, and have done so for over 100k miles and keep on plugging along just fine.

Stop starting threads.

Stop posting.

Stop skooterbuilting.

Stop being retarded.

If you just have to spend some money, do as others already told you to do 400 times, rebuild the head on your jeep, then buy some cool neoprene seat covers that are yellow so they match your jeep, don't forget to get some windsheild hinge mounted lights too.

Yes but you sounded like a chainsaw and that is unacceptable to a <25 year old. All you needed to do last weekend was teach your nephew to be a usable winch bitch.
