You certain that it's a Sahara, and not another model with a Sahara decal on it?
Or maybe someone blew up the old 44 and replaced it with a 35.. but that's kind of a far fetched idea. Usually it's the other way around. Maybe someone swapped it out while it was between owners or sumpin. I'd be kinda mad about it not having the 44.

|Oldguy||Oh, it's loaded with goodies, full set of links, tummy tuck, sye and dc driveshaft, have to pop the diff covers and see what's inside. If it's stock gears, they're 3.73's. Has a D35, which is odd because I thought the Sahara came with a D44. The shocks that came off were Bilstein 5100's. Someone along the line put some serious work into that buggy.|

So the new shocks are on and pretty sweet.
As for the old ones I think we were all baffled to what could have happened. Ed has all 4 of the shocks and I think we were talkin about donating them to someone.
Either way, learned that the jeep has quite a bit of armor on it. I think Ed said he would help me compile a list of stuff that's on the jeep because I don't know whats what from what to what.

|Oldguy||Shocks should always be done in pairs, no exception on the the front. Do one and you will experience a whole new level of weird handling.|

Yea, you too!
We're trying to relocate now. When the house finally sells we'll be on our way. Maybe then we can get together and you can show us around YOUR neck of the woods.
|04-01-2012 08:40 AM|
|brendend||I'd do at least the other front for good measure|

|Oldguy||Woodland Park, Co, just west of the Springs. Be interesting to meet you|
|04-01-2012 07:08 AM|
Yup! It's broke ah-ight!
Could be worse, so just think of it as a "spontaneous upgrade"
Old Guy - I won't be far away forever, whereabouts are you?
|04-01-2012 12:34 AM|
|brendend||New shock should fix it, I'd replace all of em after that|
|04-01-2012 12:23 AM|
This what you looking for?
|03-31-2012 11:11 PM|
|Oldguy||I stopped doing that about forty years ago...|
|03-31-2012 10:41 PM|
Better than my buddies way.
