Easier to run a Sniper? Not the cheapest but prolly the easiest.
I remember it being a chore but don't remember exactly how it all came off. Mine was so crusty is was unusable.
Ran down to CWA to pick up a buddy. Took the Rox. It was about 220 miles round trip. Used just over 7g of fuel. Solid 30 mpg boys!
The OM engines are front sump. Not a game-breaker as on a coil sprung rig, but it seems often results in compromised oil pan setup.
Gotta up that idle lol
I also do not like the Chevy Saginaw placement/process either. The Roxor steering gear (being similar location to the Chevy) is much...
Let me point out steering feel is vastly improved but packaging is a hot mess.
I might have a pic around, but I hated how it turned out.
Mods I'm going to make to remedy fitment issues:
Late CJ grill (radiator hose)
I have the aluminum wheels with the BFG upgrade. The "LE" packGe at the time. I have a ton of construction going on now, so I can't make any...
you can get tie rods cut to length
If you have a two-hole passenger knuckle, whether you have Ross or Saginaw, you can connect knuckle to knuckle and do not need the special TRE....
Yes, inquiring minds wanna know.
I mean guys have done harder swaps I'm sure. You may end up with some body lift and will likely have to move your brackets all around, and maybe...
In doing a rear mount tank, you removed all the heavy bracing in that area?
Do you have swing pedals?
Correct, I used 10 spline Warns on mine. These were actually way cheaper than the 27s on my CJ5 (NTD30).
I imagine you’ll be able to with some machine work or clever combo of shims/races. There are likely a ton of cheap carrier and 3.73 R&Ps available...
Right on, that’ll be a neat setup!
What are you gonna run in the rear?
