Nah just TSLs, I saw a rig with the SXs. They look a bit more aggressive

Any bias ply tire is going to have tough sidewalls, but they dont ride on the road like a radial they are a bit rough due to flat spots once they sit overnite, especially in the winter

had some changes in the motor, the head was cracked, I couldnt get 4.2 crank and rods, and I'm not boring it .60 over. So that makes me have less power and torque, but it will be a good bit more than stock

That thing is turning into a beast... I should say more of a beast. Are you rebuilding the engine yourself?

Yep. They only thing I didnt do is the machine work. Keith black pistons, comp cams off road cam yada yada, puts out max torque in the RPM ranges of 800-2200

You looking to build a 6 cylinder? The guy that did my machine work wants to build a 5.0 litre I6. How nasty would that be, almost 500 horses

A 5.0 would be sick. Would put out more power than my 318. The thing is if I find a donar xj for my project I want to rebuild the engine to at least stock specs so I don't have to worry about treating it too nice on the trail.

Pistons and cam are in. If you noticed its taking me awhile, not in a hurry, work on it a little here and there, less chance of frustration, fatigue and errors, 1000 bucks is a lot to lose if you mess up

I do however plan to at least yank the old motor out next week, maybe some of my awesome friends would help with the install?

It works really well for what it is, noisy tho, make sure you install it correctly. Berk and I both have one. They get thrashed on pretty harshly, and they still work
