Now is black and hanging under my jeep where they should be..haha haha

Jeep started awesome tonight, got lots of loose ends finished up.
Coolant filled, trans topped off, wires cleaned up, drive shafts back in, vacuumed out.
Leaving for exhaust as soon as I find someone to do it.

Jeep has some descent torque, not sure it has anywhere near the power I had b4...but it hasn't burned down the road yet.

Had to order an adapter for the coolant gauge I have, itll b here early next week.
Also ordered a double pass inline trans cooler, my big ol fin and tube one dont fit.
Its up for grabs if anyone has any interest. .
Here it is.
Ill take whatever I can get for it. .even if its a beer. .lol


Got some paint touch up to do,.and ball joints on the passenger side of the dana60..:thumbdown:
Bearing on that side too..
Lastly I may see if I can throw single ended full hydro on it soon. .:thumbup:

Anxious to get it on the road.
I had the 150tunes guy leave my vss wired in and live in the puter, goin to run it unhooked and see if its an issue. .the vss I got for the np205, needs a little more work than I care to give it right now.

Most of the loose ends wrapped up last night
Ball joints replaced, wires cleaned up, vacuumed, bed liner touched up.
Here it sets now, waiting for exhaust!


Computer fully mounted, as well as the air cleaner set up. All inside the cab/cowl of the jeep tub.


Still waiting for trans cooler, and my water temp probe adapter gizmo. Should be here early next week.

Took a little time n cleaned the jeep up the other day..wowza bit o mud in it....

Nice...the wheel base moved to 112" from about 108"..all in the front axle. Like a mid engine now..hahaha

Here's a front view, I installed a new factory pitman arm until I get all hydo stuff around. Old pitman the splines were getting stripped out.



Got the new trans cooler today...awesome. I like it, compact yet efficient.


Got the cooler mounted, on the fram right under the passenger side seat.

Pik ain't the goodest..

Also got my hood latches today. .I like em, more better than the hood pin idea.
Got some 90 degree spring latches, simular to the stock jeep ones.
Tapped right into the tube fenders



Got my coolant adapter today too! Got it installed, nice to see that my radiator seems to be plenty large enough. I didn't even need to run my electric fan on a run around the block, had to with old motor. .
So thats nice...
No pic of it, kinda hard to get to.

Monday the rig goes into Romers in sand lake to get the y pipe made and tied into old 3" exhaust.

During drive today it felt like the trans was slipping in 1st and reverse, :thumbdown: little late now to fire it up opeb headers and double check fluid...hope its a little low. If not ill be doing an overnight rnr on the trans next week Monday/tuesday.

Tomorrow ill get that all squared away. .so I know at least.
:thumbup:

Got that all done plus both sides upper n lower ball joints, and axle joints on a 98 dodge ramit..nice.

Thats all..im out!
