I agree, most YJ/CJ bodies just get thrown in the back yard and rust to hell. Atleast jeeps have flat sheet metal bodies = easy to work on.

Im going to stick with the CJ windshield frame so I can keep the motor on the dash. And the rust is on places where armor will be going anyways!

Might just take you up on that. Once you get all the leaf stuff off LMK.

I am thinking of going SOA when my 8.8 goes in. Then time for some 36's.

Ill save em for you!

So I started on the disc brake swap. Found out the grinding/sliding sound I had and the reason it locked up multiple times was that my inner bearing on the D70 exploded taking out the inner race and the cage on the bearing.

Had to cut the race off the spindle, but all is good and just needs re installed with all new timken goodness. Will post some pictures soon of the discs

Intercooler? There's also a few things you can do to your injection pump to increase output

I thought you were talking axles! Lol.

Yes, itll be intercooled. Hopefully a Denny T fuel pin, HE341 turbo (id love to twin) POD injectors, 3200 spring and some other little things. Looking for a factory bellhousing adapter for the Turbo 400. Id prefer auto in this Jeep like my last

Getrag 5 speed. If you could find an adapter id pay good money for it.. In all seriousness. I can't find many but aftermarket. And they fetch $1000+

Sitting at the sandblaster right now getting the hubs blasted and shaft flanges.

Why a 400 over a 700R? Just curious why you wouldn't want overdrive is all. Have you ever ran a ratchet shifter before? Everyone chucked there's over here after we figured out how to mod a quarterstick. They are 4 times faster, tougher, and cheaper. I can tell you how to mod it

I dunno what he has in store as far as the turbos go yet but I'm sure he will come up with something. He recently finished his own truck and its plum nasty.......hx35 over an s475 (over 100 pounds of boost). We usually make our own flanges and hot/cold pipes here which cuts the cost down bigtime. The only thing I will have to remember is yours is a rotary pump and his 4bt is an inline.

I wish I had the p-pump.

I like the r4, id probably take that over a 400. I just want a reliable, readily available transmission that is manual drive auto and of course be able to mate to a 205. Or maybe a 241 havent decided on tcase.

And I need to talk to you some more on some of these heavy duty components. I know a fair bit but you know alot of tricks. PM me your cell if you would. I may need your help tomorrow

Id love to compound the turbos, just want to make sure the internals will handle 50+ lbs of boost.

Heres the brakes this is a Dana 70 using GLO brackets, 77 K20 brakes and rotors and all new Timken/SKF bearings and races inside the hub.

Also thats an open carrier, found out is 3.54 gear ratio too .

Talk about nice brakes though just have to plumb, and bleed the brakes and fill the diff with oil.









I lucked out to have the one piece carrier, and 1.5" 35 spline monster axles :rockroll:

Use a 79 Chevy front caliper hose that's threaded on the end. Then all you need is a fine thread but and a bracket with a hole

You used a GM part? :O
I may have too. I bought chevette lines, very similar, but idk how the bolt up to a bracket (i have them) but they are too big 3/4" and the line fits right through the opening.

I also realized how damn easy working on full float is compared to semi-float. I love it.
