they dont build them selves over a week. takes time. stick with it you will enjoy it and be worth it in the end when you built your own rig that you wanted. it takes time and mostly money. but when you build your own jeep you will want to keep ti since it will have everything that you want or damn near. what ever the wallet can afford.

Hopefully I will want to keep it but I have a deal hard time with comitments....

Ok so tomarrow I am going to tackle some of the easier stuff seeing it's not going to do itself.....I got a couple questions.

First off I'm going to try to install the new intake, do I need to use any gasket sealer or anything on the new gaskets? I know I have to put some at the corners on the front and back but not sure about anywhere else.

Also I'm going to install the MSD 6AL in the cab behind the dash. There is a wire that is supose to be ran to a positive off the ignition key can I run a 12 volt lead from the battery itself and wire a switch up on the dash instead?
Thanks for the help.....

you do not mix gasket sealers and gaskets. it will just leak. use it around the corners as you stated.


keep going with it.

im not much help on the 6al as i dont have any experiance with it.

Ok thanks for the gasket info.

All the directions for the 6al say is hook the wire to a switched 12 volt sorce such as the ignition key or switch.
I'm guessing it will be all right. I want to use one of those lighted switches so I'll know if it's on or not.

Well I decided to put the 6al in the glove box with the door off. It fits perfect and won't get wet when I go across water or through mud. I thought about putting it on the back fire wall but figured the heat from the engine and all the mud would ruin it. Tomarrow I'll finish wireing it in and then get the new intake on.

Now I'm wondering if putting the ignition in the glove box is such a good idea. Has anyone else put one of these on a jeep? Where did you put it?
