I just acquired a early XJ
I havent got it in my hands yet but I am foaming at the mouth to get it home and start playing
This is my first jeep of any type but I have had many toyota 4X4 PUs
hope to learn a lot about these rigs
I am gonna try a 2 in junk yard lift if I can pull it off
so craigslist and pull and save for me
I will have to make a basterd pack ( thinking of the 1500 dodge van main leaf )
then figger out the front from there (Camaro Spring Isolators = 1.5" lift? maybe )
just wanna pop it up a lil for clearance and fun
A few questions
speedo cluster? can you just change sending unit and cluster and go like a toyota or is there more?
where do you like to remount your spare?
has anyone done the neon injector swap? what do you think?
I have neon injectors, only noticeable thing is a better throttle response. Didn't notice any more "power"
Most go with S10 springs for a bastard pack. dodge van may be too stiff.
I swapped my cluster and had to change oil pressure and temp sensor. In my case, my stock cluster had lower miles (85K) then the replacement (137K). Basically, I'm actually 50K lower than the new cluster. FWIW, I took a sharpie and marked on the back of the new cluster with the old cluster mileage, the current mileage on the new cluster and the date. That way if I ever needed to reference it in the future, I know where to find it. Just my OCD.
