      Most go with an 8.8 on a TJ because they are coil sprung already

      I've been searching fb marketplace and Craig's every week. There's actually a 8.8 with an arctec truss and Solid diff cover I found down in MD for $500. It's already in an TJ. I think it's got 4.10 in it. I should probably try and get it. Not really sure what to look for though.

    • not really anything u have to look for. Its pretty staight foward if it has a control arm/spring bucket mounts already done then it will pretty much bolt in. U may need different ebrake cables and a different soft line for the brakes.

    • its maybe .5" narrower. It should not make a difference. U may also need to shorten the driveshaft and get an adator flange because the 8.8 doesnt use a yoke.

      I made a deal with the guy yesterday. $600 for the 8.8 and his dana 30 front that way I don't have to re gear my front. He already has the flange adapter for driveshaft. I just need to get cables for the emergency brakes. I guess I will make this one big project and drop my tank and replace the shocks and tank skid at the same time as Aaron suggested.

    • I couldn't take the crappy sound any more so I threw these in place of the factory speakers. Tremendous difference! Btw amazon is about half the cost of qtec on these things. All 4 speakers are plug and play. Pay no attention to all the sand in the jeep...

      Picked up my axles yesterday. Fri I installed a new Kenwood head unit, Focal 6.5" speakers in soundbar, and a 10" powered sub. The stereo totally transformed the driving experience. I Found myself driving around all weekend just listening to music and going nowhere.

    • looks like the 8.8 just needs a little work on the hard brake lines and its set. Well a good cleaning and some paint too.

      Yea those hard lines aren't going to cut it. East coast gear supply sells a bunch of parts for them so I figured I would grab a set of brake lines and emergency brake cables when I ordered the flange adapter for the driveshaft. I started cleaning it up last night so I can coat it with the chassis saver paint I used on my frame.

    • Passed inspection on the TJ on Friday. It was due in February so I was only a little late, I've been driving the WJ down the beach...didn't put a tag on the TJ this year. Failed on the first pass, one of the high beams was out. Pulled into Lowes, fixed a broken wire and was back in line in 9 minutes.

      Need to take the windows/top and doors off the TJ today and drive it around. I forget what it's like to have an open air jeep.

      Installed some LED lights, 2- 6" rear facing. 1 cube for a dome light, and 4 cube for a reverse. The dome and the rears can be switched on or off together or separately.
