    Credit for having the guts to ask, but as I said, dad bought it special order, brand new, and still has the window sticker. In short, not a chance at this point and time.

    Placed a big $$$$ order with ECGS on parts to repair a rubicon locker failure in my TJ a couple days ago and received everything today. Decided to go with ARB locker, ARB dual compressor, inflation kit, and a Yukon master install kit for quality bearings. Gonna be a few weeks before parts are installed just couldn’t pass up the discounts that ended today for all the parts.

    Out with the old, and in with the just as old, but at least it’s not locked up.

    Haha yep. The Toyota motor was the first choice since it was for sure a direct fit. The Chevy 292 on the stand is the backup just in case this one doesn’t work out.

    Then I probably shouldn't mention the truck that bed on mine came from, and will be going back to, is a 79 2wd original Lariat truck with cruise control and factory (not dealer installed) air conditioning. It was a factory 460 truck, currently has a 429 in it, and will be getting some love after my work truck is back on the road.

    Once the work truck is back running, I'm gonna take both my boys (6&4) for a ride, and they will be the third generation to enjoy the truck, in its third incarnation.

    Fired mine up and let it get up to operating temp.
    Either the cam gained some duration or the gas is stale.

    Replaced the front sway bar links on the wifes 2010 Escape after getting new crugen HT51 tires and a 4w alignment last week.The Ford drives and rides better than when It was purchased w 60k and now it has 160k.The last set of tires were michelins and these Kumho tires might be better than them.

    Probably going to swap the CB for a 50A, but it's what I already had on hand.[​IMG]

    Slapped some Dirt Bound Offroad armor on the back of my DailyDriver, took the fenders off and trimmed the openings larger. Then ran a strip of molding along the edge to 'church it up' a bit.

    Rivnuts suck btw. It's so hard to line them up... I'm going to dremel the openings out a bit to get the other bolts in.

    Got mine together enough to pull it out of the shop for the first time in a long while.

    My youngest decided to come out and climb around in it, while I did some cleaning. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Replaced all hard and flex lines on the XJ, hardlines were all replaced with stainless.

    I pulled the abs out at the same time, this job brought the suck!
