Yup, got an AW4 tranny from an XJ in it. Its a decent trrans btu I miss my standard trans. Id trade ya but I already have the 4 spd Im puttin in. Besides, I was looking for an np435 due to the extremely low 6.69:1 first gear it has. It also might a little tough to trade with ya being that Im in MI and you reside in FL, lol. But when you do end up swappin your out I might talk to you about getting your clutch/brake pedal assembly and the master/slave cylinders, etc.

also not going to be able to use both high steer arms as they are too short and at full turn the tie rod hit the springs, but not a big deal , i am going to use the arms casted in the knuckles and just the 1 high steer arm.

do you have a cheap drill bit @ 7 degrees for the tierod holes? but i just might take those blanks off you if i can find a reasonable price drill bit., i put in rubicon express 5.5 . but i am thing some of the front sang in actually in the lower spring perch, possiblely lower than stock, sinch it is a tnt truss. ballistic sells short arm and longer arms i must have gotten the shorter ones. right now i am just using the stock location for the tierods in the knuckles

can u post pics of them hitting the springs...it just doesnt make sense.......how far forward are your springs...and how high did you space your arms......also to add to the drill bit discussion.....just buy some 5/8 heims and a 5/8s drill bit and build your own steering that will be much stronger and more reliable.....5/8 heims=15 bucks....tierod ends= 30 or more...carry a spare heim and your good

the problem is in the hi-steer arms , they dont actually hit the spring but ,if i was to use the cross-over steer hole then the bar linking them woult hit the springs/truss. so for right now i just used the original arm for the axle in the stock location.as for the heims good idea, could you pm a pic of your blanks?in this you will see the holes for the cross-over arm and drag link are to close to the knuckle , at full turn the bar hits the spring/truss.


on another note drover it around for a while tonight,ride perfect no d/w or bump steer

it appears you have enough space to move it out about in an inch to clear the truss.......at least from a pic...lol...anyhow thats why i made my own arms b/c i wasnt sure what and where it would hit my truss and i had to fit a hydraulic ram in there somewhere........i can get a pic of my arms cut down...ill see if my buddy can email me his cnc specs for them so you can see what his machine burns them out as.....ill be out of town for a week so give me a lil time

Now you got me worried. What size tires are you running? When Im done swappin my axles in I have a set of 36's to slap on and I thought the 9" wouldnt be any trouble. I was bankin on the 44 needing cromoly shafts before the 9" would. What were you doing that it snapped like that? I dont wheel crazy but I deff. dont baby it either.

i think i just had a bad shaft or the previous owner beat the hell out of it and i was just the unlucky one to get it. it broke while i was in sugar sand doing a rear dig.i have outher buddies doing burnouts on asphalt on 38 boggers and not braking any shafts.we will see with the new shatfs, i did not get any chromos since i am not changing the spool to 35 spline, just slaping in a set of "alloy", as i heard omix-ida owns them now and they dont up-hold there warranty, but @ 90$ each, its not end of the world money.we will see. if they dont fail in the next year, then i will throw a set of 35 spline chromos in, time will tell...
