      Went wheelin at Haspin in Laruel, IN today.

      Got a little stupid in the early stages But, even at 7.5" and only 33s I didnt flip.
      Here is a picture of my dumb ass, trying to go through a ravine that was just narrower than my Approach/Departure angle:

      Here is Jason going through a hole. He hooked up the winch before since he was the first and we didnt know how deep it was going to be. He made it through on the first try and didnt need the winch at all.

      A few shots of some battle scars I got today sliding into a tree.

      extremly, threre is no more drag of the clutch fan on the motor. it deffinatly woke the 4.0 up. also another nice thing about it is that i have it switched, so when i go and do a deep water crossing, i can just shut them off. i will get some pics of the setup later today for you

      Sold all the dubs. Lifted XJ, dumped SF5, 2014 impreza
      11-26-2006 11:06 AM #124
      Im SO hyper, I just picked up my project 97 4.0L 5spd XJ Friday for CHEAP. I will have pics later today maybe. It already has an add a leaf in the rear with 235/70/15" BFG All Terrain's on 98 ZJ alloys. Going to do another leaf, and maybe new coils or spacers in the front and longer shocks all around and ditch the sway bars to clear 31's until I can afford to go bigger

      Here is my current 04 WJ Laredo, 4.0L, Selectrac, Terraflex 2" lift, 245/75/16" MTR's, OEM hooks in front, OEM skid plates all around, straight pipe bypassed the clean up cat to an OEM V8 Limited exhaust.

      EDIT: Ok, shot some quick pics of the "new XJ" project. It has a pretty dented left rear quarter. I just slide hammered out most of it to bolt a newer used bumper corner on for now (making my own heavy duty bumpers in spring for winch mount, shackle mounts, and a swing away rear tire carrier) Note the crunched rocker same side, a little bit of rust. Also hard to see but there is like a foot long scrape down the right rear quarter under the 4x4 sticker. But all in all not a bad rig for a total purchase price of $1042 out the door with registration, plates, title fees etc, and it even has a good state inspection sticker on it and a half tank of gas

      pics from this morning of the jeep and the fan setup that i was talking about. the fan is out of a 93 ford taurus with a 3.8 liter engine, it included the fan, which is 2 speed and the shroud that is almost a perfect fit over the zj rad. cooling the vehicle is definitely improved 10 fold

      Breandan, lookin' good! I'm glad you noticed a difference on your 6 cyl. I didn't notice a whole lot on my 4 banger w/the electric fan. I'm running an older single speed Taurus fan with a Mr Gasket relay/temp control kit. The shroud fits excellently, and with a 185* t-stat, the Jeep runs cool as can be.

      Look at all that room!!
      (Sorry for the crappy low-res photo, it got goofed when the admin re-sized)

      I also added an override switch for those deep water crossing:

      YJSAABMAN, thanks for the good words, it tough when you have so many projects going on at the same time. yes the fans helped out quite a bit, it deffiately took some stress off of the engine. i see that you have alot of room in that engine bay!!! looks like the perfect candidate for a swap

      Here are a few shots of what i'm rollin' around in up in Ontario Canada.... I help run the http://www.krawlerz.com off-road enthusiasts club. Check out the forums if you want. All these rigs get wheeled. The CJ's are my old man's. The YJ and ZJ are mine.

      1975 CJ-5, fiberglass tub and one piece front-end. SBC 383 V8 stroker with lots of goodies on it (400+hp/400+ lb ft.) muncie 4spd, NP205, six point cage tied into the frame SOA with 40 inch swampers. Warn Winch etc. etc. This thing will lift the front tires clean off the pavement.




      1980 CJ-5, still beating on the original 258 I-6, T-176 4spd, Dana 300 case, 31" x 12" tires, fiberglass one piece front end and tub. Lots of mods to come to this thing. Dad built this jeep frame up when I was about 5 years old, been in the family a long time. Remains the same as it was then to this day, will be on 33's or 35's by spring.




      My 1995 YJ project. 60,000kms original on the frame and drivetrain. Fiberglass tub right now. Have an SYE t-case, ~4inches of lift, a 4.7L stroker kickin' around here that i'm contemplating tossing in it or the little CJ-5. Gotta finish this project, it's becoming a garage ornament.


      And my pride and joy Daily Driver ZJ. 1995 Grand Cherokee Ltd. 4.0L with a mint body and all the ltd interior options. 4.5" Rubicon Express lift, 33x12.50x15 Pro Comp X-terrains on Pro Comp alloys. JKS discos, Stainless header, Stainless Magnaflow exhaust (loud as all hell). Soon to have front and rear bumpers, fender trimming, flares, winch etc. Still in the build process and with it being the DD and seeing running duty all over Ontario (2.5 hr drive to visit the gf on odd weekends) it's hard to find time to wrench on it.

      Nice Ass shot next to a rock cut south of Bancroft...


      And here's a shot of the gf's rig. It's a 97 TJ on 32's in this pic (pic's a lil grainy, sorry) now up on 33's.

      ^ funny thing is, no dub for me anymore. DD is the ZJ. Used to be the 96 4dr Golf Turbo Diesel. (<-long story with the bad luck on that car) so I went back to what I was familiar with. I owned a 91 YJ Renegade that was written off years ago by a taxi driver running a red light. Blind intersection, he ran the red and I T-boned him shoving my driveshaft through the t-case and bending the leafs, cracking the frame etc. Was lucky to be alright really. Anyway yeah, it's sort of just years of culmative jeep collecting in my family lol.

      Nah, no swap. No need to go fast in the Jeep. The 4 banger's never let me down, it saves be from having to over-engineer everything else, and helps keep the rig light. I do have another one I'll be building a bit w/a Clifford cam and a little headwork.

      Got this 2004 Grand Cherokee Special Edition, on Saturday.
      Too bad the Check Engine Light came on today. Code came back for o2 sensors in both banks. Should be covered under the warranty.
