Jeep is together minus the transmission, tranny tom was missing a seal and a c clip to get it put together so that should be done this week.

camron my codriver has been asking for a foot plate to steady himself when we take hard hits. We came up with the idea for this plate and alumcj cut out the plate on his cnc plasma and dimple died all the holes facing up for traction for us.

few pics.


P.S. there is plenty of room for sponsor logos on the new paint if any one is interested. Pm me for details on our 2012 race schedule.

Foot rest looks good. I suggest not going barefoot.

1 step forward two steps back, while changing out the front shocks for our spare set of fresh rebuilds, i noticed the driver side motor mount looked different. Come to find out 6 of the 7 bolts had sheared off in the block and the one that was still in there was bent and backed half way out.

so far i got 5 bolts out and cleaned up the holes but we may be pulling the motor tonight to drill and re-tap the other 2 holes.

If any one out there is going to be racing i highly recommend jeep speed style 4.0 liter mounts as this has a been a problem plaguing us from the beginning, and make sure its part of your maintenance to check the bolts on a regular basis. The stock 4.0 only have 3 bolts per side.

Anybody sell stage-8 type locking fasteners for this yet? Seems like the Jeepspeed guys would have a workable solution by now.
