Bought an XJ for my son and I to wheel. It was owned before by a Texas boarder Patel agent it has 180k miles on original engine and transmission. It has an 8.8 rear axel, 488 gears, cage, new BFG KM3’s but I keep braking the front Dana 30 axel. We out wheel many of the more expensive Jeeps partly because of wheel base. I would love a Dana 44 if you guys have one laying around to donate. My Jeep is in my thumb nail pic. Love your channel!!!

TheHoonigans I bought my first xj in high school to just get around (my profile pic) then bought a 92 2 door. Built the motor in that one. A year later I bought a Comanche. I still got all 3😂👌🏼

Eduardo Nava well the girl I was dating at the time was a fitness model and a personal trainer. I was very close to asking her to marry me. The ring was in the Jeep when it was repossessed (hence the reason my payments were behind) never got the ring or the xj back, and never proposed. Then fast forward 16-17 years, I was BS’ing with a new hire at my job and the subject turned to land rovers & 4 wheeling, her dad worked for Land Rover. So it turns out that he and his dad also worked for Land Rover and his is best friends with her dad and he had been for like 40 years. Well then he tells me she’s pushing 350 lbs and has 5 kids now. Whew, dodged that bullet!! Ha.

Should have checked out Stinky Fab Racing's one ton setup, I'm running their setup on my Comanche. The bars are straight which makes alignment easier and they don't rattle, squeak and have deadspots like a heim setup.

"Upgrades" brakes but uses stock single piston calipers. 😂 Wasted money on the cavfab for a xj knuckle. Next time WJ swap the knuckles. You get bigger calipers, pads, rotors. Also cavfab let me down. I had to cut the drag link in half and sleeve it for a 8" lift on a ZJ :( Customer service stopped replying after wanting to see pics. Not hating on ther product. It is well built. Just doesnt fit the application I wanted it for. Even though they said it would.

Why put a non winch bumper on, and a cai which is gonna get dirty super fast offroad just wandering the slotted rotors are a bad idea incase you go through mud or get a rock in it cause you will gouge the rotor bad. No hate just wandering the thought behind it.

.. wut? Those heims look like a 9/16 shank or some business + WTF is up with those rotors? Reducing the thermal mass in order to something something marketing and falsehoods, right? WJ knuckles & steering was the way to go there. Man, I'm salty today.

How do you do a front alignment with that upgrade for the steering?

Vor 16 Tage

mike thrapp

Set total toe to .25°, center left to right toe. Then adjust drag link for steering center. Same as you would with the y link. The tie rod will twist if you cut off the end link tabs. The drag link has to be dropped for the adjustment.

You are going to want a steering box brace as well. Once you start turning large tires offroad you run a big risk of bending/cracking the from where the steering box is bolted on. Just thought you should know before it happens!

i have a 5.2 v8 that would go perfect in that jeep. cant get the title for the jeep i got due to it being out of state and it needs to be inspected but b4 it can pass inspection it needs worked over as far as emission stuff catalytic converters an all that, but it runs perfect an has way more power than i ever expected the 5.2 to have. so right now im looking for something to put that engine into cause the jeeps body isnt worth spending all the money getting it inspection ready so whats something that the 5.2 would go into an not take a crazy amount of work to get it in.

I could be wrong, only had a short glance at the steering, but that thing is gonna have mad bumpsteer. Trackbar needs to be parallel to the upper steering link. You need to mount the heim for the steering on top on the pitman arm to fix that unless you did an over the axle trackbar pm me for details
