Just thought I would share my plans for the future, when I get money... Well Christmas is coming up so...
First off is getting a Ford 8.8 axle (junkyard - 80$) getting gears for front axle and 8.8 gears I might get, 4.56s for 35" tires (about 400-500$), then getting the brackets for the 8.8 to put on the Jeep. (200$??). That's a couple of paychecks right there.
I don't want to get all the fancy stuff yet, like tube fenders, rocker armor, or any of that until I get the axle and gears put in...
I need a new trac bar and steering stablizer, because I went to Goodyear for an alignment for my tires and umm the alignment bar was frozen... (rusted together) so I plan on doing that. Getting new brakes. Maybe one Summer I might go down to Alabama and live at my grandparents for about a month so my grandfather and I can weld a little and do some projects for a rear bumper and tire carrier, maybe even a front bumper.... who knows.
My next step after getting new tires, would be cragar soft 8s, nothing better than black on black
I really want my Jeep to perform well on roads... Right now, it's not doing so good. The front tires are almost bald on half of them... braking is harder, and not being able to get an alignment is very bad... I am going to save up most of the money I can. (no job right now
) working around the house, mowing lawns and such. And I should be there soon. Just takes time.
Thanks for reading, any comments or suggestions, feel free. Up for anything.
