callahans in pontiac, it is actually "james" on here who is doing the work, it's turning out pretty nice... quality work for sure.

there will be tail pipes on it, the mufflers are in a little different spot now too.

Exhaust completed. As geo said, the muffler has been moved from the pic that is show. Further back and up. Comes out under the frame behind the shocks and dumps right beside the gas tank.

I think James did a slam dunk job.

As far as the next update goes, I ran it down the road today & it handled the bumps quite nice. Shocks still need some tuning. Driveshafts arrived today so I should have a wheelable jeep Saturday.

Planning on doing a shake down run at the Mounds Saturday.

Looks nice WhiteRhino. It's kind of tall, plans to lower down a little or are you running bigger tires then the Irok's pictured?

Shocks aren't tuned yet. Just threw some gas in there to get it rolling & get the exhaust done. I dropped the gas out of the rear & strapped the rear axle up to full stuff for fitting the exhaust. Right now it measures about 5-6" of up travel. Design is for 4".

Yes, we set it up to be capable of running a true 40" tire. And actually, it sits 2" lower than it did with the SOA.

Exhaust pics. All bolted together with flanges in front of the mufflers. Nothing welded to the frame.

Well we worked till about midnight to get the shocks tuned and driveshafts installed. Found that I needed to clearance the joints some more. I took today off and driveshafts are now clearanced. Temporary limit straps are installed and now it is time to order the proper ones.

As soon as I finish lunch I am back out to install the winch.
