I'll definitely look into those lights then

Oh, I upgraded spark plug wire, spark plugs, 4.0 throttle body, Airaid CAI, and a battery grounding kit and the difference was night and day. Engine does not crazy loud at 4000 rpm, smoother idle, lower end power improvement for sure. I will be doing the electric fan too.
Yeah i plan on getting the sye sometime in the spring because my jeep has a hard time starting in first and I feel like the transfer case drop is wearing down the gears and the clutch pretty bad.

Mines actually a layover. Was one of those chrome pos and well now it's black 😃 I'm planning on pulling the layover off and just doing plasti-dip or just painting the original grill. Not sure yet.

Yeah I still have stock gearing, and mine doesn't bog down unless I'm going up hill on the highway but even when I go downhill the fastest I can go is probably 75 haha but if you're bogging down on the highway I would consider some performance upgrades and new gears but you can only do so much to a 4cyl haha

morvayryan Got her a lil dirty yesterday. Nothing too big, just messing around in some mud
12-28-2012 05:44 PM
morvayryan I feel bad for not posting in months but I haven't been able to do anything new in a long time to my jeep. I've really been wanting to but I just can't really afford anything at the moment. My next plans though are to get a sye and a driveshaft so I can get rid of the t.case drop and get more clearance. And I'm not sure what will be next after I order that in the spring. I would really like to get 35's for my jeep but I need a lot before I can do that, like a 8.8, new gears, body lift, and metalcloak fenders. Well that is my future plans for her. As of now I just have to have fun with what I got.

Kman1983 Sounds like a nice build. Have you given any thought to adding an inertia ring to your 2.5? Heres a write up on the inertia ring https://www.facebook.com/#!/notes/th...50330578364216

morvayryan The 4.0 throttle body came in today and i put it in. I also ordered a new gasket that goes between the throttle body and the engine and i am glad i went ahead and ordered that since it was only $1. My old throttle body was nasty. The whole inside of it was black and gross, and the used one i bought wasnt much better. But theres nothing like some good ole' elbow grease to get it cleaned up, and......also some throttle body cleaner
So heres how i did it....
first i disconnected the negative wire from the battery then disconnected all the wires going to the throttle body.
Next, i disconnected the pipe going from the air filter to the throttle body and put it aside to get it out of the way.
I then unbolted the 4cyl throttle body and took all the sensors off of it.
I cleaned the 6cyl throttle body with carb/throttle body cleaner untill the inside of the throttle body, the part that the air travels in, was nice and clean. I also got used an air hose hooked up to a compressor to get all the dust and dirt out of the valve and in the nooks.
I took the sensors off the 6cyl throttle body and put the ones from the 4cyl onto it.
I put the 6cyl throttle body up to the intake and traced with a sharpie where i need to trim to make the hole bigger for the new throttle body.
I got some paper towels to put in the intake and got some painters tape and put it upside down on the paper towels to catch all the metal shavings, and got the dremel out and started grinding it out.
Then it was ready to go back in.
I put the new gasket in, bolted the throttle body up and hooked up all the wires, connected the battery and was finished.
AND to top it all off, I went to start it and it started up no problem on the first try ....that doesnt usually happen haha

morvayryan Mounted the light brackets and put the lights on, I haven't wired them in yet though. I also got two more d-rings for the front bumper and put them on. Now just waiting on the new throttle body to come in
06-05-2012 11:37 PM
morvayryan So I just purchased a 4.0 throttle body for $30 I couldn't pass it up, so after reading up on how to do a throttle body swap, I've decided to take on the challenge. I'll post pics and a review to see if I actually gained anything from the upgrade.

That sounds awesome! I don't have a welder or any tools to fab up my own things, I really wish I did though. But let me know how your build goes and keep us updated on it.

morvayryan My front and rear bumper came in today and had the day off so I could install them. It wasn't too bad except for the rear bumper, that was tricky to put on. I was surprised to find out that the rear bumper came with 2 d-rings. I just ordered 2 more for the front bumper. I'm really impressed with the look of the stinger! I think it looks really aggressive. All in all it wasn't the easiest install, but it came out lookin pretty sweet.
05-30-2012 12:15 AM
morvayryan Also just bought new windshield light brackets online from 4wd. I can put my lights on my windshield and have room for a winch later on to mount on my new stinger I will post pics of everything as soon as it gets here
05-27-2012 10:42 PM
morvayryan Its been a while since i posted anything, but ive been trying to save up some cash to get some other things on my list. So i just ordered a Smittybilt SRC stinger front bumper and a Smittybilt SRC classic rear bumper with d-rings and a tire carrier. Hopefully they will come in by the end of the week or begining of next week. Im looking forward to getting these cause ive been wanting to do more to my jeep for a while but just havent had the money to do anything yet. I post pics of everything when it comes in, and while im installing it.

Coil springs on a yj? I wish mine had that. Anyways, no, you shouldnt have to change the drive shaft or brake lines because you are really only lifting the suspension parts by 2 inches and the drive shafts and brake lines can handle a lift up to about 3-3.5 inches of lift. And the body lift will just raise the body off the frame by 3 inches so it's not affecting any suspension or driveline parts.

I got the 4" rough country lift with the n2.0 shocks and it came with the transfer case drop. It did not come with shackles, I got OEM heavy duty grease able shackles from Quadratec. They were only $40 a piece.

And it is still a bumpy ride, but it was a huge improvement for me because before I installed the lift, my jeep had factory springs with a 2.5 inch shackle lift...
Another thing that might help with ride quality is to get greaseable shackles and to not tighten the leaf springs or the trac bars down until after you take the jeep of the jacks and it is sitting on its tires
