Interested in joining from Enfield
« on: June 28, 2016, 07:24:57 AM »
Hey Guys!

New to the area but not new to Jeeps. Currently own a 2000 XJ and an 88 YJ. Plan is to try and make the next meet and greet. the XJ is my dd and currently just on 31's. The YJ has a stroker and has been converted to MPFI, sitting on 33's.

This is an old picture but the only one I have of both Jeeps together.

Thanks! I considered joining a little over a year ago but wasn't 21 and was recommended to wait. I got caught up in school but now have graduated and am getting back in the Jeep game since things have slowed down. Looking forward to meeting some new people with the same addiction as I have.

I didn't have anything to work with, I'm sick, I'm drunk, I'm tired.  Pick an excuse.

Unfortunately the YJ is off the road at the moment. Wrist pin froze up and trashed a set of pistons. Bore should be salvageable, hopefully with just a hone. Rounding up parts to get it back together in the next month or two I hope. Any stroker guru's on this forum?

Thanks, I may have to send him a PM and pick his brain about a few things. Lessons learned and whatnot. I have a plan but haven't pulled the trigger on the credit card yet. It would be nice to talk to someone with some experience before I do.

If you end up doing a stroker build, create a build thread. Id love to see it done, Ive decided that my jeep is going to get a stroker instead of an LS

For sure. I am pretty active on Jeepforum and have a lot of the information over there. Same name as on here too. I don't have an issue with having a thread going on both though. I am always looking for second opinions to avoid missing anything that I may have overlooked. There is no question as to whether the build will happen, as the engine already exists and I just need to rebuild it. I ran the first stroker for a little over a year before I had issues. Engine is getting more cooling, dished pistons, bigger injectors and a hotter cam than the previous setup. Along with some other small changes. Jeep is already set up with fuel injection and has been upgraded to an ax-15. I also picked up an 8.8 to go in since I was pushing the D35 pretty hard, even with the old setup.

Thanks. It was a pretty expensive color so I was glad when it turned out the way I wanted it to. I just happened to get lucky that the half doors I picked up were almost the same.

Didn't feel the need to start a new thread for this, but how long does it usually take to hear back after sending in an application? Sent one in a couple days after the last M&G. I suppose it depends on if it is received before or after that months meeting?
