    Re: Some actual Tech in the Tech session

    The kits he sells use a standard orbital valve and 2x8 cylinder for the front. The rear is a lever style 3 position valve with open center and another 2x8 cylinder. These are not the ultra sexy...

    Re: 500 cadillac into tj

    Do a search on pirate4x4.com I saw one thread where a guy put one in a CJ. You've got some challenges ahead, especially in the flywheel and header department.

    Re: Some actual Tech in the Tech session

    Looking good.
    Humvee wheels work pretty good with dually fronts, but then you're stuck with 16.5's.
    One thing to research though is the rear steer 60. I have seen some pretty tricked out rear...

    Re: warn 8000 winch help

    Somebody chime in here, but aren't the solenoids the same as a Ford Ranger starter solenoid. Seems like I replaced one on my 9000 with a Ranger solenoid.

    Re: Transmission

    T150 can handle the power. You should be able to pick one up dirt cheap because no one wants them due to their terrible nature offroad. T150's are fine for the street though. Look into a T18 or...

    Re: Wiring up the winch I've got comin'

    A lot of folks will tell you to use the thicker top posts for the winch due to the amount of current a winch will draw. Use the side posts for your starter, etc..
    However, I run the winch on the...

    Re: Narrow trac vs Wide trac

    The 8" width makes the tire stand up taller vs. the 10" width. At least it appears that way to me.

    Re: Narrow trac vs Wide trac

    Borrow a 15x8 wheel and mount one of your tires (or spare) to see if it gets you the look you want.
    A friend of mine has 36TSL's on the factory CJ steel wheels and it looks good.

    Re: 500 cadillac into tj

    Just googled real quick and saw one blog saying the caddy is 400hp and 500 ft lbs in stock form with 10:1 compression. Sounds like an interesting project and since you are not rock crawling the...

    It will not work and your Jeep looks terrible with that wide stance. I will do you a favor and take it off your hands.

    Re: 500 cadillac into tj

    IF you are willing to drop $3500 on it, then why not go with a Gen III Vortec or LS1. Any one of those will fit, have huge aftermarket support, are fuel injected and actually still get decent mpg. ...

    Re: up-coming swaps

    You already have the best transmission and t-case combination of all those listed.
    Use the TBI350 (for fuel injection reasons) and the Ford rear 60. Sell the rest of your parts and buy a Chevy...

    Re: Fenderwell headers

    Whatever you do, don't exhaust right below or behind the door. Go out the back.

    Re: Putting Tires On

    I would paint them trash can.
    I mean seriously, those are nice tires and all, but the Ford rims are going to make it look like you were too cheap to buy the right tires and wheels for your Jeep.

    Re: Think'in of a 2.4L 5.3 GM swap in 04 TJ

    Don't know about a TJ, but they work pretty good in a CJ. Dollar to horsepower wise, you get more for less with the 5.3.
    BTW, you can get 325hp out of the 5.3 engine with a simple computer flash. ...

    Re: Putting Tires On

    Why didn't you mount the 35's on the wheels in your sig picture?
    When you say Dana 44's are you referring to Rubicon axles or have you swapped in some other D44's?
  23. Re: Let's make the definitive list of what to bring off road

    A pair of decent ratchet straps. I have used these for holding gear together all the way to locating the axle in place of a broken spring.

    You might consider a jump box instead of jumper cables...

    Re: What T-case/Trans for My CJ?

    The T-18 is nice, but the Dana 20 will be a weak link. You should look into swapping a Dana 300. You will need an adapter to mate the 300 to the T18, but even then you will come out cheaper than...
