luckily the compression was still good before pulling the heads so i think the bottom end is still good so we are going to install the new head and do some little maintenance items and button her back up.
now i have to build the widened front axle and setup the 3rds. Find a longer passenger side rear axle for the full float FZJ80 axle to make it 67.5" instead of the stock 63.5", from my reading the short side rear axle is 29" from end to mounting face so if i have one made at 33" and widen the housing 4" on that side i should be right around 67.5"
next i have to figure out suspension. i think i am going to run the 14" shocks i ave and some f150's or 63's for the rea and get some FOA coilovers for the front and build a homebrew 3 link.
hopefully i can find some deals on nthe parts i am still lacking on black friday/ cyber monday.
