Where can you find TJ's in a yard?
they are hard to find in a pic/pulll yard, and most of the time if they are out there, there is nothing left of them.

as far as what to get, if u want to do an axle swap look for a 97-01 or 02 i think explorer.they have the 8.8 axle with 31 spline shafts. and for the frong a ZJ has a HP 30 up front. just make sure its the "box style" body and not the new ones. they have a LP30. maybe even score them with matching gears and a LSD for the rear

A rear window for a hardtop for under $200. Cheapest one i could is $460. Stealership wanted $750 plus a 5-7 day special order waiting period. Then hang on to it or sell it on CL

It's the XJ (84?-99, but I believe the later years are more desireable) that has the HP30, the ZJ has the same as the TJ:thumb:

That is a deal. You'd be amazed with what I could fit on a hood.

friends of mine took an entire running vw engine they do these events every few month and there awesome... 50 to get in 100 for a hood and i think if you dont find anything they give u lke 80% back or something (i always find something) lol my neck of the woods is full of ricers too so if you dont come across anything usefull you can at least make a few bucks on stupid teenagers
