I was always taught you circle the answer, not the problem.
06 TJ, rusted out frame, fenders, and tub. Rocking a 6" body lift.

Why am I such a prick? Everything is relative, you should meet some of my friends.

Ford was always backwards they forgot you did that. That's why it's ford and not dorf. They are dislexic(hope that's how to spell it) they were trying to figure out the ackranem for driver returns on foot. Lol

Time for a 5.0 coyote. But seriously big block it and be done with it. Im thinking a 514 would suit it well.
Beat it to fit. Paint it to match.

Building a capable off road Jeep is easy...building a street legal one that you can drive two hours away to wheel and then drive to work the following morning is the challenge.

Well I can safely (I think) say it is running again.

replaced the dizzy and spark plugs and it is running pretty well. Will replace plug wires very soon and also double check timing but seems like Miller48 got it in time pretty good with just his ear. :like:

Had AAP in Mannington test both my OEM and BWD TFI module and both tested good. So I had them refund my money on the BWD since my OEM was fine even though AAP In Bport told me it was bad.


so.....so far so good. took it for a cruise today and got breakfast with the wife. now to tweak a couple things in it and enjoy the summer.

Thanks Aaron! Got the stang a little air born after leaving Jack's house on the test ride :lol:
