|Dixie fix||I hope it holds up well for you, it's something is consider if it does. I've been watching your thread for awhile now.|

Now, I will agree that depending on gear ratio, and type of terrain, that perhaps a lunch box locked D30 may not suffice. Buuut Im all about the stages of building and pushing it until I need to upgrade.
I wheeled my Jeep harder when it was Open Open, the front locker just makes it seem to take stress off of wheeling so far and makes obstacles easier.
Time will tell though!

Oh yeah I know people do it, but it's not for me. As far as the d35 yeah it's garbage we all know that. Hints why I have a 8.8.
Now that 10 year warranty sounds nice! I'll look into them
|03-02-2014 11:48 PM|
Dixie, I have upgraded to chromoly shafts in the front. 10 yr warranty from G2.
Not scared of anything. Lol
I'm mostly scared of the D35. Seeing how I tend to put stuff to the test.

|daddyjeep||There are a lot of guys running the D30 locked with 35's. The rear D35 is the ticking time bomb, which India has addressed. I think it will hold up fine.|
|03-02-2014 04:30 PM|
|Dixie fix||I have a eaton e-locker in the 8.8 but the front stays open! I'm worried the d30 wouldn't fare or well with 35's and a locker of any sort|

So up until this point, I have been wheeling all over with my axles Open/Open.
Figured its time to step up the game just a little and prepare for the future.
Stage two is slowly coming together.
I have all of my gears for the ford 8.8 swap and to re-gear my front D30.
Just have to buy the last $250 in 8.8 swap parts then find the time to start working on it.
Couple of weekends ago I had got off work on Saturday night, and took apart my front end. Got up early to install my Aussie Locker in the front axle as well as G2 Chromoly front shafts.
Which then lead to this: Yes, my YJ (even unlocked) has been more places than either of these two JK's, including the Rubicon I'm stacked on. Both have about 3-4" lift and are on 35's.
More to come!

|indirocz28||Its about to go down again for the next line of upgrades and much needed maintenance assuming work picks up some. Sales is a hard business when there is no traffic coming through the door....|

|daddyjeep||I like the new wheels and tires. The Jeep is coming along nicely.|

|bowtieman55||NICE build. Simple and to the point.|

The Nutter bypass is where you run some wires to bypass the computer and hook the ignition module straight to the distributor in these old carbureted YJ's.

|iowncars||Looks great man!|

|Dooley the Clown||I hate to sound like a complete Newbie, but what is a Nutter Bypass? I have seen that term on several posts and haven't a clue what it is.|
|08-29-2013 12:27 PM|
|indirocz28||Haha! It works great! Thank you!|

And today I scored a set of 2012 JK wheels from a rubicon, some spacers, and new BFG KM2 Mud Terrain tires for a great price!
|08-22-2013 08:51 PM|
Alright alright. Well, it has been long enough since I have added any updates or anything to this thread about my Little YJ.... So here it is:
After I got the carb straightened out I installed the CRT HEI Dizzy:
Got the timing all set up, fastened her down, and haven't touched it since!
I do need to get a new idle stop screw for my carb though. It moves every once in a while.
Next was to add the lift. I went with a 4" Rough country lift, and then added the transfer case drop as well. Also did new motor mounts.
With that I added the set of 32x11.50x15 Pro Comp all-terrain tires and chrome wheels I picked up locally for $300!
So, time came to go wheeling!
|06-05-2013 07:58 AM|
Okay, seems like I finally got all of that ^^ previous bull crap straightened out.
Later in June I will do a CRT HEI distributor swap, but it is running good now that I swapped to a Motorcraft 2150 carburetor. See Here: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f8/anot...ue-245479.html
|05-27-2013 11:50 PM|
Okay, I've searched, and done the recommended steps from the forums and peoples youtube videos.
First off, she is a 1990 YJ with a 4.2L, 5spd, and a reman carter carb (dated 2011)
Jeep ran pretty decent until yesterday morning when I accidentally barely bumped the distributor while looking at the orange and purple wires to do the Nutter Bypass.Had issues all day yesterday with idling when pushing on the brakes.
That is where my issues started.
It started running rough and idling funny, so I got out my timing light, followed the instructions and re-set the timing. Seemed to be fine until I drove it down the block and at every stop sign it would die. WTF..
So today I did the Nutter Bypass, followed instructions on doing it and setting the timing to 8*. Ran like a champ. It was awesome for about 2 miles, then same issue. Every time I push in the clutch and push on the brake pedal to stop it idles rough and dies. I have somewhat remedied it by adjusting the throttle stop (center long screw) so that it idles just under 1000rpm, and it isn't currently dying. Still have a slight misfire.
So, what I am noticing though is that when I am pushing on the brakes and the engine rev's are coming down, that is when it goes below idle speed and wants to spit, sputter and die.
Here is what all I did: Today I did the Nutter bypass, replaced the Ignition Control Module to get rid of misfire (didn't work), Replaced the distributor cap & rotor, Replaced spark plugs (didn't work), Replaced ignition coil post connector to remedy misfire as the old terminal connectors were rusty (didn't work),new air filter, plugged open ports on stock air cleaner, got rid of emissions hoses and sensors and plugged all vacuum ports not needed. Just pretty much bare bones carter. I don't have any vacuum leaks.
Only vacuum lines hooked up are for brake booster, distributor timing advance, PCV, and the vacuum to the electric choke. Idles pretty decent in open loop, however a slight misfire. Seems that the misfire gets worse at closed loop.
Still has a misfire somewhere, and have pulled plug wires and it hasn't changed, so perhaps it is in the distributor. Once in closed loop and running above idle while driving, it runs great, however once in a while I can still feel it misfire.
Also, ran through 16.3 gallons of gas in 166 miles, and it ran me out on the side of the highway. So a 1h 45m trip took me 3h 45m to get back to base from the fiance's place.
Eventually I am going to probably swap to a motorcraft 2150 or 2100 with 1.08 venturi's and do the HEI distributor swap. But I don't understand why I am having issues when I am extremely mechanically inclined (went to automotive college, and it was my career for years until I joined the Army).
Thank you for your help.

|indirocz28||Did the Nutter Bypass this morning, set timing at 8*. Makes a big difference in her running.|
|05-26-2013 11:45 PM|
Doing the Nutter Bypass tomorrow, hopefully that will cure my crazy running and idling issues.
Went wheeling today in it for the first time. Only mods are 235/75R15 tires, sway and track bars removed. I made it through and over everything that everyone else with lifted, locked and larger tired' rigs made it through. Never needed a tug forward or backwards!
|05-24-2013 01:28 AM|
I'll do what I can to help.
I drove down from College Station to Pasedena and traded my other YJ for this one.
The air turns on, but I think it needs recharged. So I'll convert it to R134 soon.
Need one knob for the switch.
|05-23-2013 10:33 PM|
|Cashcrazy||Nice find,it looks clean and you found one with factory air. I drove four hours one way to Houston and bought a 89 about two weeks ago. I started tearing it down the first weekend. Ill try to get some pics up now that it can move under its own power again. I sure could use your help if all your vacuum lines are still in place. I have a couple of dead ends from the PO.|

|95YamJam||Looks super clean. Congrats!|
|05-23-2013 06:12 PM|
|tigerblood||so did you trade the other one?|
