  1. I loved my sniper. The thing was dead on reliable and no cold start issues or warming up needed. It had two little issues, which are well known. I had to reset the idle air control by covering it and setting the idle. This was needed to keep from having a super high idle. Took 5 minutes max. The other was the fact that the linkage for the throttle cable connection is not high enough to get enough leverage so you get horrible throttle tip in. I added a flat piece of metal with 2 holes in it to raise the mounting point 1/2 an inch. Solved it. But Holley sells a progressive link for $12. They should just include it in the kit. But again, I loved the sniper and would do it again.
  2. Already sold the sniper and the offy intake from the dead 4.2. Going to use the multiport injection for the 4.0.
  3. Painted the lettering on the Willys and took off the extra front turn signals
  4. Just acquiring parts at this point I will get to it after the new year
  5. Wow. This needs updated. I had my timing jump which snowballed into killing my starter and about five teeth ripped off of the flywheel. Since the motor is starting to have blow by again, I decided to do a 4.0 swap. Located a 4.0/aw4 combo from a 98 XJ and dragged it home. Then went and pulled a full harness with ecu and trans controller from a different 98 XJ. Also started to disassemble the stuff on the 4.2. Still need to buy a bunch of parts and send the harness off to get thinned out and made to mate the CJ to the 4.0. Fun times ahead.
  6. I haven’t been doing anything other than keeping it running. Replaced the points and carb and added mystery oil after bad flooding of the engine trying to start it while I had a bad ground. But all is good again And took it to a historic site around my town It will be at a friend’s wedding in a couple of weekends for pics, so I will wash it and get it ready to be the center of attention. Well, maybe not the center. [emoji12]
  7. I am in Ashburn, and take the dive up to Tremont, PA a couple of times a year to go to Rausch Creek Off Road park. They have some really nice trails from easy greens to “buggy only” reds/purples. There is another park up there that I have not been to called AOAA. I hear good things about it. Good luck and don’t tackle the trails alone. Always have at least one other off road vehicle with you. Just saying it in case you were unaware of that. In fact Raush Creek won’t let you go out alone. They will add you to another group or make you stay in the parking lot.
  8. Hey Dewan. The closest public trails to Northern VA are in the GW National forest. Flagpole knob (by Harrisonburg) is a nice easy trail to get started. There are a few different trails around it to get up there and a few to get back down. There is also Peter’s Mill a little further down. There is a private camp ground/trail system in Gore VA (by Winchester) called The Cove. A local guy who runs a company called Big Dogs hosts events there. If you are going with a group of 10 rigs or more, you need to go through his company. If it is a smaller group, you can go without being part of one of his events. There is also Chaos Offroad park. Look them up. They have a small trail sustem right over the WV border. But their shop is in Winchester.
  9. Please do. I posed it on a fake rock at a new local dealership today.
  10. Took it for a tour around the back roads of Loudoun County with 3 other flat fenders
  11. Welcome! Here is my CJ8
  12. Thanks. And yes some snow is still on the ground. But it got up to about 38 today and sunny so a lot melted off the sidewalks and streets. Tomorrow should be near 50 so it might all be gone by then.
