CPT.Morgan16 Hey I'm a new jeep owner and I'm going to be dropping. 292 sbc that I built. And I am not sure but I am thinking I'm going to use a nv4500. But my question is can I use the t-case that is in the jeep now? It's the 2.4L
Any help would be great. Also kinda dumb but I don't know how to start a net thread.

89JEEPYJ i mixed these guys up and thats what caused my steering problem

front end with snorkel off

i get a lot of down travel, i still had more in the shock but i just stopped anyways

her first obstacle. although it doesnt look it, the truck is kind of steep and i had very little gas in there and the motor stalled after a few minutes from not getting gas

she has more travel but its biggest obstacle i had in this trail

getting ready to put her away

close up pic of double sheer high steer

trying to do wheelies while i trying getting tires balanced. got the front up once

top down ready to roll in garage

she is away and if u look on back of quad the new 6.5 inch lift cherokee springs are ready to go in. But i am now in boston for school
