    After reading this thread I feel like you need an intervention......... I’ll be the ahole and point out the elephant in the room that a couple of posters have eleuded to. You need to understand you are dumping and will be continuing to dump a PILEof money into what looks like a home built chassis. That chassis is not worthy of an LS. You still have a torsion housing from a VW in that chassis right? You’re building a lopsided car. Cut your loses, salvage the parts you can and search the for sale adds for a good quality chassis built by a reputable builder with tried and true correct chassis geometry, appropriate sized tubing with good triangulation. Of course resale value can also be a factor. I know you are hindered by your location but don’t let that stop you from haveing a property built car that will provide you and your family with as safe as possible experience that will take you out in the dunes so you can enjoy the time you have running the car rather than wishing you had done it right looking at your family sitting in lawn chairs while you work in vain trying to cobble some morphodite car back together in an attempt for at least one decent ride. Sorry, not trying to discourage you but we all want you to succeed in your quest for a good car, not become bitter and hate the predicament you get yourself into and disappoint yourself and your family. There have been many cars for sale that are in various states of disassembly for a great price on here. I don’t know what he is currently getting for a chassis but Jesse at JP Designs sells a very good car for a great price and will sell it in about any stage you want to buy it. If my post offends you I’m sorry that’s not my intent just ignore it and I won’t respond again.

    Little update!!! Thanks for the references! Today I pulled the trigger on some equipment from Lion courtesy of Stugots! 32' gas grill, single side burner, double doors, double drawer, sink and faucet. Grill came with a cover, rotisserie, griddle and a smoke box. Won't say what the $$ was out of respect but I am very happy with the deal! Thank you Randy! Enjoy your set up too! "um what if we just double the order?" "Oh, and add the in-counter ice chest too!"

    If anyone would like to try this out before they buy one, or need to borrow it feel free to text me I am not looking for money or to rent it out or sell it, as I still use it to move my dad's 5th wheel every now and again 909-579-7519 Austin

    Haha no problem . After hearing all the quality things these had on them and the price we got it all for, it was to good to pass up. Glad it worked out for you..

    New to the Jeep game. Picked up this '15 JKU a few months ago. Always looking for jeeps to go wheelin with. Not much for action pics yet as I usually don't think about stopping for pics. 5.33 gears, 3" Evo lift, king shocks, 35" tires, Reel drivelines, yada yada yada......

    Types of hubs. Google midboards and you will see pix and understand. The CV is mounted inside of the hub itself. Midboards give the ability to have longer axles, i.e. more travel. Plus if you lose a CV, the tire doesn't come off the car. With stub axles, the tire comes off an passes you.

    That's like selling a 2d with new internals?at $3900, unheard of. Damn good deal. Those other 3 items are average $200 cost used each on a good day. Also, the adapter (934 to 930) is only at the trans side, you already have the 930 setups... especially when you can inspect, clean up and resize the axles you already have. No brainer all around. Ok, back to my story... I built a V3.net frame off their pdf plans on a flat patio. Worked out great but the grief, mysery and pain along with the cash it took to just get a standing chassis (no rear arms) took way longer than I thought. A 2 seater Mosebilt frame with full body came up that was pretty much tabbed for everything, has a massive torsion bar (much bigger than what the V3 called for) for almost the same amount of money and invested time that I had in the V3. Did I jump on it? Hell yeah! I now drive the hell out of that and the V3 frame cornered up to one side of my garage has a undetermined destiny at this point. Not sure if I'll ever get around to it. I want to but the amount of energy, time and money it took to even get the 2 seater completed (which is a loose term) is well distant in my future. I've seen some sweet unfinished 4 seater frames come and go on the cheap that had my head spinning again!! But how do I explain to the wife yet another frame lol you can put a V8 in that frame but in no way was it built for it. Just because you can put one in it, doesn't mean you should. Definitely can be beefed up though. There are some old threads in here that speak of that very thing. Hence my mission to build one.

    Not really, but neither will the 2D. The problem is the T1 stubs. The money sent on 930-934 adapters can be spent on new shafts and re-assess after you have a couple of seasons in it if you want to spend the ~$4k going to 934 the right way. It's not just buying 934s and axles and calling it day. It's new arms ($400-1000, depending), re-doing your mounts, getting a micro-stub or mid-board hub/brake kit ($1600 to start) and the axle kit ($1300 as J Alper says). On top of that, going micro-stub will net more travel, so you'll be tempted to either re-valve and re-spring and move the shock mount closer to the pivot, or go with longer shocks. 934 to T1 is plain stupid to me. In the Jeep world, it'd be like going with an Atlas II or N205 and leaving the D35 out back. You'll have this big giant axle setup (which will shock load that poor T1 stub more than a 930 setup) plugged into a puny 12 spline T1 stub.

    get a small quad type whip and pinch it in the tailgate when you close the gate. simple and it works just fine and then don't have to worry about a mount and easy to take off and put on

    Don't run an adapter. The weak link is now the stub. Break a stub in the arm and you ruin the bearings within feet. Makes for a long day getting out of the dunes. I'd stay with 930s and carry an extra CV.

    Jonesin I feel like you are all kinds of lost. If you have measured your car and feel that a standard old model 2d will fit then just pick any off the options Jalper suggested and you will be fine. As for 934's, there is absolutely no need to run 934's on a 2d trans IMHO. You will want a weak link and you don't want that to be your trans. A properly set up car can run 930's no problem for a long time with the right driving style. My suggestion is to do more homework and you will save tons of money and head ache.

    So we lost all of the Dothraki One more dragon Edd from the Nights Watch Flaming Sword dude Jorrah Little Lady Moremont ( She did go out with a bang though) The Red Witch and Theon. Not sure if Sam made it out. Was surprised more didn't get killed. And yes that was probably the most stressful hour and a half of TV i have ever experienced. And yes when Aryia came flying out of nowhere I screamed, but when he stopped her my heart stopped........ Then she did the bad ass dagger drop to the other hand and becomes the biggest badass in all of Westros.

    Hrrmmmm.... Special fuel blend. Yep. Special refinery requirements in the state. Yep. Special transport requirements to bring fuel into the state. Yep. Special filling station fuel tank requirements. Yep. Outrageous per gallon taxes. Yep. Carbon taxes on gasoline production. Yep. Can't imagine why our gasoline is so much more expensive...

    This guy knows why gas prices are high... he supported the gas tax increases... and will support more of them. Make no mistake, these idiots, are not really "idiots" they are educated people. The sad part is how much they believe the general population to be full of idiots. The general masses in CA, who also supported the gas tax increases, see this headline and think "wow, he is looking out for us"

    I think maybe stating using a air temp sensor in the blower so it can read air intake temps and make adjustment to the tune because of the temps may be a more accurate statement. Most of the blowers have a provision. On the Mefi many tuners will tell you they can't get into the computer because they are locked from another tuner. We have all the software needed to get into them.

    Jason I respect you, but you should do some homework - arguing is not productive to the Ops question I have built dozens of SC Sand cars and more Street and race cars, I have been through the Turbonetics cert courses, and worked withRoots and Twin screw blowers on many cars... you logic is sideways Bottomline MEFI is OK tuned right - to answer the Question
