so my photobucket account exceeded its bandwidth for the month =[ no photos until the 7th!!

but today i went and and did a bit of flex test. I only had so many cinder blocks or i could have gone higher, the rear wheel was still firmly planted on the ground


either way i did score a 898 on a 20* ramp. not to bad i guess

So today i got the smart idea to bore my throttle body!!



It went okay using a hand drill! NOT!

so i went and got a new one. Problem was i had a 96 and i got one off a 94(its all they had) the differences are the 94 does not have the provisions for the MAP sensor because it is mounted seperately




So to solve this i drilled out a zerk fitting so i could attach the MAP sensor






Then i got to work with the lath(after i got shown how to use it correctly)



62mm of nice bored smoothness



and everything mounted up




I did end up having to make a new butterfly disk... Other than that it works really awesome! a great improvement in throttle response. No whistle either.

No i have yj/wrangler lines (3" longer)

I also have chevy 1500 v8 2wd lines (28" long total) sitting in the garage waiting to be put on. THose are 3" lift shocks so i bottomed those out there. I need new coils and shocks in the front still...

The rear has full packs and real 6"-7" lift shocks Also have the wrangler/yj lines in the rear. plenty of slack in them at full droop

Decent the reason I asked is those lines look identical to the lines on my Jeep and look like a factory line. With my 5 inches of lift I figured there was no way I could still be on the factory cherokee brake lines and have slack in them when it is flexed out.
