I bought mine on amazon, I paid about $135 and got free shipping on mine. Looks like the price dropped about $10 but their charging $13 for shipping, so should come out to about the same price?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B006GJ...&pi=SX200_QL40

Upper control arms showed up.



Talked to my buddy about the 77' gmc some more, he says the PO told him it has a 400 bottom end, so it's either a 377, 383 or 388 depending on if/how much it was bored. Sweet..

Been a while. Finally started working on the jeep.
Just fixing the normal little stuff that stopped me from driving it

This is the to do list as of now

Replace brake light switch
Replace coolant pump
Lower the rear of the jeep, going to replace the 2" lift shackles with stock ones
Find tires in the 31-33" range, the bfg's don't hold air for more then a day or so now.
Weld the driver seat brackets
Clean the interior, it's pretty nasty after sitting for a couple years.

Shack, I made it a convertible XJ!!! Just temporary so I can still cruise the trails before I leave for commercial fishing. When I get back, the lift locked axles etc. will be going in my 95' xj which is a 2 door 4.0/5speed just like the orange one.

good reason to build an exo cage.

Thanks shack, I'll give you a shout if I come across something I need.

Murphy, I'd love a exo/hybrid type cage and I do plan on doing something like that for the green xj. I just don't have a tube bender yet.

It may have no roof and gets muddy inside, but still having plenty of fun with it!

Roasting some rubber lol
