    Re: Steel Tube Bending

    I won't have a tubing bender until probably next year. But when I do you're welcome to bend some tube.

    In the mean time check out Evil Twin Fab. I had some of their sliders on my old J10 and...

    Re: Communications -what do you use?

    I have CB, ham, and GRMS as well. And I do APRS too. Handhelds and base stations in the Jeep.
  4. Re: Spare tire and accessory mounts for topper cage

    I would look to make sure the cap is rated to handle the weight. Some of those caps can't handle much. Some can. I'd hate to see you go to all the trouble only to have the weight break things.

    Re: 97 TJ

    The 8.25 is in the same neighborhood as the Dana 44 and Ford 8.8. Weakest of the 3 but built right it's "close enough".

    It's easy to upgrade the earlier 27 spline axles to 29 spline to be closer...

    Re: Napa Maxi Trac Heavy Duty 12V Air Compressor

    It won't damage anything. 90A is high but a modern vehicle can keep up with that pretty well. It might be a bit much for an older vehicle with a less capable alternator. But as long as you're...

    FS: Dana 50 TTB axle. 4.10 gears.

    Pulled the TTB out of my 1997 F250 this weekend in preparation for a Dana 60 swap. Figure I'd see if anyone wants it before hauling it to the scrap yard.

    Comes complete from hub to hub. Springs...

    Re: Battery-starter-grnd Wiring Question

    I vote block as well. I like to use a 0 gauge wire. I also put a grounding strap between the block and the frame. And one to the body. Those are usually smaller but still substantial.

    Re: Regear advice - shop recommendations?

    A day late to the party but I'll chime in.

    I had a 2001 XJ with the 4.0 and an automatic. I ran 265/75R16 tires (32's) and 4.56 gears and it was a pretty good match for all around driving. The...

    It wouldn't be impossible to weld that crack up and machine the bores again. I don't know if that would be cheaper than just buying another cast intake.

    Re: ISO NP207

    A 21 spline NP231 will swap right in. They are found behind 4 cylinder TJs, YJs, and XJs. Also, you'll find them behind 4.0 XJs from about 87 to 89 or 90.
