DIY Quick Disconnect Pins This mod is not my idea. I'll gladly admit I ripped it off another post on the interwebs. But I figured I'd snap some process photos and post the results here. And thanks Kizer for keeping a lid on this until I finally got it installed.
These were made for a friend of mine who's just getting into offroading (and modifying his Jeep).
We all know how helpful a quick disconnect link can be for unhooking the front swaybar. And we all know all the good aftermarket discos available. But their prices are not cheap at $80-140. For someone just getting started or on a smaller lift it's possible to make a quick disconnect pin for a fraction of the cost and simply use the factory swaybar links.
So after much deliberation I finally brought myself so to sell my Blue Cherokee to a close friend of mine. After being without a play toy for most of this year, a friend of mine told me she wanted to sell her 94 Honda Passport EX 4wd. Price was dirt cheap so I jumped on it, paint not the greatest but body is straight and its rust free and all the glass is good
I know what you're saying...It's NOT a jeep who care's...right I don't care cause in the spirit of Jeeping since when do Jeeps have all Jeep parts, hell my 89 AMC Cherokee had all kinds of mixed stuff lol. So basis of a crawler, 4WD check, Geardrive Tranfercase check , Dana44 rear axle check...all stock. Now on to the goodies...
Of course IFS is BS, out it goes with an after noon of cutting thanks to the help of AlwaysWrenchN and a Plasma cutter...scoured the yard and found a 76 Jeep Wagoneer Dana44 front axle-PERFECT! Some TrailGear front 4-Runner front springs from a friend at work. An extra se...
About April 2011 I bought a 99 XJ Sport 2dr. My original thought was to turn it into a Panel Delivery (Sedan Delivery depending which school you went to).
I wasn't sure which way I wanted to go. I know it would look killer lifted and all rigged for trail riding, but the old school hot rodder in me is pulling me in another direction.
I wanted to take the 4.0 and stroke it and make it scream, knowing full well I really wanted a V8. Maybe a small block Chevy. Looking at all the hoops I needed to jump through, and a Novak conversion, I knew I wouldn't be satisfied with the outcome. I thought about the 383 Plymouth I had in high school, punched out to 413. If I could get my hands on that motor.
Well I read a few articles about swapping in a Hemi. I got very interested, but I know that frame stiffener hardware alone didn't seem to be enough to hold it down. So I looked for articles about putting a full frame under an XJ. One fellow was building an...
Highland Park is a motorcycle and ATV riding park and has never been open to Jeeps before, this is a first, so don't miss it! About 30 miles of trail are suitable for Jeeps, all trails are rated in difficulty, and all trails have a bypass if you choose not to do that trail. There are no extreme trails, but we do have easy, moderate, and hard trails suitable for stock to pretty well built Jeeps. These trails are wide enough for most Jeeps, but if you have a super tall Jeep with full width truck axles and 44" tires, you should leave that Jeep at home. Sorry, but our trails are not going to wide enough or have enough overhead clearance for monster Jeeps.
We will have live music Sat night, as well as a big bon fire, and we will open two of our MX tracks for night riding Sat night. These tracks are BIG and have a lot of elevation change and steep jump faces, uphills, downhills, moguls, all sorts of fun stuff in a Jeep!
We are also constructing an obstacle course near t...
I am getting ready to upgrade to a bether rear axle and dump the d35. I'm looking to get a d44 which will be hard to find for a fair price. A ford 8.8 which I may build partly by me or order one from East Coast Gears. I am also thinking having a Ford 9" built. I would have 410 or 411 gears, a selectable locker ( not sure which one) If I go with a used d44 or 8.8 everything will be gone through and replaced if needed. I am looking for one that can handle 35" tires and locker and the northwest trails. This will also be my daily driver. I have a budget between 2500- 3000. I am kinda leaning towards the 9" and know that it should handle everything I throw at it. So do you guys have any thoughts? I know they all have pros and cons. And of course it will come down to my decision. I'm just wanting to know what you guys have liked in your rigs to handle the trails with little issues.
