Subject: CJ front disk's


Hate to break up the Axel Alley discussions but..............

I have a 1975 CJ5, The stock dana 30 has front drums, what is the easiest
way of getting disk brakes on it. I can't find anything on Jeeps Unlim. or
Off road.com, is it so simple that no body else asks? Do I just find a D30
someone took our and get the brakes????

If so, anybody have a D30 on the side of there garage for a case of beer???

Thanks
Steve

Any one know of a good solution for the front brake lines on my TJ. I dont want to spend like 80 to 100 bucks, when checker has so many brake lines there. I was wondering if any one had part numbers or any info. Not sure if the brake lines from an older chevy would work or not. I need them to be about 3 inches or longer.

Thanks Jon.

Can you drop the brackets down without too much hassle. Seems to work for
otehrs pretty well.

You can pick up yj brake lines, they're a good couple inches longer
than tj and bolt right up. If you go to stu's website it will show a
write-up. Just go to google and type in stu offroad and it will
take you right to it.

Jon,

You need to spend some time browsing my web site.

The exact answer to your question, including part numbers is right
there.

Check out http://www.stu-offroad.com/misc/brakes-1.htm

And the price should be about $40 for a pair of hoses.

Me too. It usually happens when I am climbing a steep hill and then goes out
about 20 to 30 minutes later. First I thought that it might be low oil
pressure, but that can not be the case. Low oil pressure will not light the
check engine light.

I have gone through emissions just fine following one of these incidents, so
the code that lit the light does not seem persist.

Well, they won't let me in to see Brian, because I'm sick. I'm just getting
over a cold or mild flu, I'm not sure which, and they say I probably caught it
when I visited Brian on Christmas day the last time he was in the hospital. So
now, this time, they think I'll pick up something worse because I'm weak from
fighting this off, or spread what I have all over the hospital, so they said
don't even go there. I talked to him moments ago and no news is good news, I
guess. More later..Jim

For what it's worth I not a fan of either Magellan or DeLorme.

My choices at this point include Garmin, National Geographic TOPO! (must
have state series to get total value), Garmin Mapsource. Mapsource puts
topo type maps on my color StreetPilot. In TOPO! you can freehand draw a route
and it can automatically break it into 30 waypoints (max per route for StreetPilot)
in a way that best fits the route. Download route and waypoints into the StreetPilot,
combined with MapSource map, it's pretty impressive.

Allows me to put the computer away unless I get into serious trouble.

Subject: Where can I get 2-1/2" backspaced wheels?


I'm looking for 5 15x8 2-1/2" backspaced wheels (5 on 5-1/2 bolt
pattern). Anyone know where I can buy some that aren't a special
order? The guys at Discount Tire want almost $500 for 5 basic steel
rims since they say they have to be custom built. Nothing
special ... no bead lock or aluminum, just simple steel rims.

Thanks for any help.
Jeff

What kind of wheels are they first (from discount) 100.00 buck each is a little on the high side but when you are the only manufacture who will build these you can pretty much name your price
try Custom & Commercial out of California or possible Bart wheels Bart wheels are very Pricey

Thanks Rick Beer

Tough question here, I guess it all boils down to personal preference.
With my laptop, Delorme is the best in my opinion and I think I have tried all
the rest. Since I have been using my laptop for at least 4 years now with GPS
software I think I am qualified to say that.

Magellen is another story. It seems most of the OHVers use Garmin. When
someone sends you waypoints, etc for trials they are in Garmin format. I
went to the trouble and expense of getting OziExplorer to try to use these in my
Magellen but have not been successful at all. Also older Magellens (3 or
sol years) will not work with Win 2000 or XP for transferring info from your
computer to. If anyone asks me I would tell them to buy a Garmin just for the
compatibility issues with other members. I guess another alternative would
be to use a PDA with Garmin software. I personally like the larger color
display on my IPAQ over the bland mono screens of most GPS devices and for as
often as I use GPS off road I cant see the expense of a color Garmin, besides
most if not all the color GPS units have smaller, lower resolution screens
compared to my IPAQ. I have done the research for a nice CF GPS unit for my
IPAQ now I have to get on out and determine if the Garmin software will work
with it and how well they mesh.

If anyone has a copy of MapSend or Topo from Garmin they could lend me to
experiment that would be great.

One of the things I don't like about DeLorme is that they are not the actual USGS
topo maps. MapQuest and TOPO! are the actual USGS maps. Third party nav
software such as Fugawi and Oziexplorer will import from those.

There is nothing as good as the real USGS topo maps.

I've used Fugawi since 1995. I use TOPO! now since I can carry every 7.5' Arizona topo on my hard
drive (MapQuest requires a CD).
