    hydraulic clutch conversion?

    As Belizeit posted, use the factory location. Just cut it out if it hasn't been already. Then just use the factory YJ master and slave. You will need the clutch pedal from a YJ as well. You do not need the whole pedal assembly.

    hydraulic clutch conversion?

    If you are planning to cut a hole in the bell, you will also need to get an adjustable pivot ball and clutch fork. I very highly doubt there is enough material for where the pivot ball would need to be. That would be a lot of screwing around. I'm very confused as to what you have against...

    hydraulic clutch conversion?

    I just used the adapter and an AMC bell with the mechanical linkages. Worked perfect. But that was only because I had an AX15 from a Dakota which is the wrong bell. If I had a Wrangler ax15 then I would just go hydraulic because it's already set up for that. So I guess my decision would purely...

    bigwalton Postal teardown/rebuild - what would you do?

    Do you have any pics of the blazer back seat in your Jeep? That sounds like it would be more spacious and comfortable than the little cj back seat.

    Advice on an '81 for sale

    It may be a nice jeep, but in my opinion the price is a bit high. I think you can find a really nice driver in the mid teens if you keep your eyes open. Just my opinion.

    Advice on an '81 for sale

    Top is not original to the jeep. You can see the holes are plugged where the shoulder belts would go. Seats look like reupholstered yj seats. Not sure what the center council is out of but not original. I hope someone else can chime in but the bed floor looks like it has been replaced. If so...

    bigwalton Postal teardown/rebuild - what would you do?

    As far as the body goes, I guess it depends on how bad the old one is. There so much stuff on there right now that I don't know what it looks like. I saw the pics way back from when you first got it. I think I remember it saying D dog or something? Other than that I really don't remember how it...

    title question

    When it comes to Jeeps I personally purely look at condition and honestly I think a good number of others do as well. It's not hard to spot body work or frame repair on jeeps. Even if there was, if it was well done then I guess it just wouldn't bother me. I would take several "before" pictures...

    In regard to the new Bronco release

    Unless I have misunderstood something even "general purpose" was also just a nickname. "G" stands for government, "P" represents 80 inch wheelbase, and "W" stood for Willys. The Ford GPW wasn't built until after Willy's couldn't keep up with the war demand. The famous picture of where the Jeep...

    In regard to the new Bronco release

    You just had to get me started... lol Ford gpws didn't come along until AFTER they were nicknamed jeeps. The famous picture of the jeep driving up the stairs at the Capitol proves this. Also, the term "jeep" actually dates back to WW1.

    In regard to the new Bronco release

    :rotfl: I'm sorry, all in good fun. Honestly it is nice to see other makes get into or back into the off road community. Hopefully it will help bring down the insane prices of the new jeeps.

    Brake Drums out of Round?

    It depends on where you get them from. By me the AutoZone drums are great. But at Advance they are out of round at LEAST 9 out of 10 times. I have to cut them to make them right.

    Ford 7.3 Godzilla swap?

    Lol, I hear you there. I'm just saying if it is within a few inches of an LS in height, you should be good. There is definitely room above my 5.3 in my Jeep.
