    Welcome to Virginia Offroad Sports! Looks like you've ran the older Yota's hard, getting some serious air! Be sure to hit the Mechanics Corner section and post up some build specs, and future build plans!

    Kairos wilderness resort ride 2/23/19

    Awesome, one of my favorite wheeling spots was mostly old creek beds. Ton of rocks in a small 40-50 acre area. We had a blast there, but it got shut down. I'll definitely have to check this place out, but doubt it'll be this run you posted about.

    Mostly mud & trails? Or are there rock areas to play on too? This is about w 1 1/2hr from Roanoke, so I’m interested in learning more!

    New member and first time zj owner

    Welcome! On Jeep #30?? I thought I had a lot, I'm only on about #12. I'm picking up a 93 ZJ, which will be my first that I've owned, but I've had my hands on several for repairs or mild builds. Have also owned a XJ, few CJ7s, couple YJs, J20, and a MJ. What are the plans for your 98?

    My new addition - 1984 CJ7

    Well the bearing was destroyed... looks like it siezed, spun the race then ate itself alive... 4th pic shows where the race cracked. The housing end is 99% in tolerance with some added material at L & R center line. Gently honed it out to remove burs. Will be reassembled with Loctite bearing retaining compound on the race.

    Jeep CJ7 Heater Fan Upgrade

    Place-Holder Topic: 78-86 Jeep CJ and 87-90 Jeep Wrangler YJ Heater Blower Motor (Fan) Upgrade As anyone with a CJ knows, the heaters, while great, still leave a bit to be desired. Later model jeeps, such as 91+ YJ's have a better heater blower motor, that pump a great deal of air through the small interior of a Jeep, but the CJ's utilize a fairly small blower motor. A very common, and some-what decently documented upgrade since the 80's has been using a larger blower motor from GM/Chevy. In my research, most use one from a "1973 Blazer" Where discrepancies come in play are that many say to search for vehicles "with A/C" whereas others state to search for vehicles "with out A/C." This topic is meant to help guide anyone looking for pictures, details, tips and tricks in completing this mod.

    Spring 2019 Virginia Off Road Sports Benefit Show

    Location & Date is set!!
  14. I’m sending out some preliminary ideas to some local organizations for a fairly large Auto-show. Our focus on proceeds has always been to benefit local children, and this is unchanged. My thoughts are this year to either donate towards Autism Education & Support, or towards the Children’s Hospital. The date will be tentatively set for Late April or Early-Mid May. Keep posted for updates!

    VAOS 93 ZJ

    Depends on the carb... Quality High CFM can run as much as EFI retrofits that are capable of supplying fuel up to 1200 HP. My 78 will be getting the Holley Sniper Setup, and I've got plans for multi-port EFI on the small block I'll be building for my 56 Vic. The Vic, as I envision will be pushing 700-800hp at crank off 351W based motor. But it will be twin turbo, built 4R70W electronic OD trans, Fully tunable Holley management system, and LS styled intake that holley is putting out for the 351Ws

    VAOS 93 ZJ

    Will be picking up a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee soon, courtesy of Mike aka @jeepfam He picked it up around Oct 2017, from previous owner, with known transmission issues. Here is what I know, from the original sale post by prior owner/builder: "Stock 3:73, 35 x12.50 km2 barely any wear, 3 " pucks, 3" pro comp springs, adjustable IRO control arms all the way around, both IRO adjustable track bars- front is double shear, rough county winch plate with d rings, badlands 12,000 lb winch, serious off road 1 ton steering, new steering stabilizer not on yet. Lots of goodies. Motor is still strong, 407 injector swap, msd coil. Also I swapped the 249 for a 231 tcase. I also have u joint driveshafts and u joint axle shaft. Switched from cv to 96 XJ axles with the big u joints." Here's my list for current plans: Repair/Replace Tranmission Remove 3" springs and budget boost spacers Replace with Rusty's 5.5" Lift Springs Remove 35s - install on my 78 F150 Replace with set of 33x12.50 ATs Install replacement front bumper cover Go through mechanical items Brakes Engine Steering

    VAOS 93 ZJ

    Why go back in time? Efi & electronic trans are leaps & bounds better than old school tech. But you can find rolling shells for around $400-500 with no motor or trans. As for NOS... it’s fun, but wreaks havoc on internals with too many sprays. I prefer forced induction Also look up Azn’s AWD hemi grand... it puts out quite a bit.

    VAOS 93 ZJ

    Was over at Mike's tonight, checking out the ZJ, it's a solid rig. Typical paint fading and front leather seat bottoms are cracked/ripped a bit. But really a solid rig. The adjustable control arms are uppers and lowers, so prev owner before Mike spent a good bit on upgrades

    Gr8Dain’s 84Scrambler

    I haven't done much research on the 4.2, but what options are there to tie into the timing? I see you're running an HEI setup.
  23. YJeXtreme

    Gr8Dain’s 84Scrambler

    Let me know how it goes, I've heard good things about their setup. I love how you can integrate it with other electronics too. For instance, my 78 F150 is getting a mild big block 460, and I'll be doing an E4OD transmission, which is electronically controlled. Like ability to tie everything together to get the most modern functions in a 41 yo ride.
