    are you sure that a smaller seat is a good idea?

    after all, we know how you drive and that factor alone might bounce you right out and into a mud hole

    What kind of mods/upgrades have you done already? Engine and tranny? We wanna know more!

    If I was a Jeep, they'd have parted me out a LONG time ago.

    I'm a proud member of SOXJA ask me why!

    Krawlerz team member too!

    I have a semi hemi! I love that little motor, goes like snot and never quits. Still have a stock drive train although she is lifted. Depending on how she holds up next season I may up grade the drive train. Currently just finished taking out a 2.5 out of another jeep and put in a 4 litre. So enough drive trains this year. I will post a pick of how she rolled out last year.
    WARNING! I am about to do something really fawking STUPID!!!!!!

    Ok got some shopping done. Thanks to jeepman I now have a spare tranny/tcase complete. with slave and master cylinder.
    Squiddly came up with a tcase for me, but it is for a 4.0, so will pass that onto jak for the price of gas.
    Got a direct bolt in 117AMP alternator couldn't find any 136 amp- but the extra 27 amps should help. If your looking for the alt look for a 97 and up Dodge ram, or jeep grand. last 3 in the P# 912- for the 117amp and 913 for the 136 amp- no muss no fuss, just remove old and replace.
    Next picked up an electric fan from a ford taurus. Someone is going to have to help me here with wiring. I believe I got all the relays and stuff. Will post some pic parts later today.
    Now I just got to get my kids fkn jeep out the garage. lol
    so trannyt/case complete was 200. fan 40,alt 50. So $300 ain't bad for what I got.
