I would not replace the shackles unless they were obviously worn. You can remove and inspect if you have any doubts. Same with the bolts. Locking nuts are one-time-use, though you can reuse them in a...

The T-18 has some desirable characteristics. It's strong and durable - way under-stressed in this application. Parts are widely available. If the donor is a V8, it will bolt in and the shifter will...

My understanding is the full-time cases are not up to the impact load of a manual transmission. That's why they are always offered with automatics, not manual.

A T-18 from a '79 Chief has the...

It's the "cheese grater" grilles that have a big hole in the leading edge of the fender, IIRC. '70-73 Wagoneers.

Maybe it was modest on the items I was purchasing. AFAIK you don't get a flat 15% off of everything - "up to 15% off" - some things approach that ceiling, some don't. Likely an indication of their...

Turned out nice.

You can buy cast aluminum project boxes from Hammond that can have a waterproof silicone seal.

The FSJs with the 44 changed from 11"x2" Bendix brakes to Delco brakes after 1973.

Both the 44 and the 60 got Delco brakes, but I don't see any overlap in the respective parts.

I don't see any...

Fairway Green Poly (metallic) was offered in 1973 and 1974, both as a solid color (paint code 512) and as a two-tone (519, models 16 and 17) with Champagne White (432).

Looking at the parts book,...

Not a painter either.

Single stage is said to be easier for solid colors. For metallic, base-clear is said to be easier. Difficult to get the paint to match when you shoot metallic SS. The distance...

It's part of the towing package. If you ever sell your Jeep, it could be valuable to the new owner. I'd leave it alone unless it's causing trouble.

TGW won't know anything about the sixes, I suspect. They probably sent you the grommets for a V8.

The six valve cover has two grommet ports - one for the PCV valve connecting to the manifold, and...

I have owned two 258s, each with the steel valve cover.The plastic cover is much worse this way.

The first was a brand-new 1975 CJ-6. From the factory, the valve cover leaked. Not bad - no drip -...

You'd need a 6-lug Bendix drum. There's nothing that would prevent the 6-lug Delco drums from being compatible AFAIK, but I think it's unlikely they would be.

Maybe the same as the later Dana 44s after the Chrysler takeover. Certainly different from the earlier 5-lug Dana 44s which are Bendix brakes. They are both 11"x2", but the 6-lug axles have Delco...
