thx swamprat! It sounds so much more amazing in person, every time I start it I get a hard-on. I'm having trouble with the trans shifting into 1st, it will only shift manually and it seems to be starting off in 2nd then shifting to 3rd, (this is Y i hate automatics, especially computer controlled ones!) so on Monday I'm taking it to the dealer to see if they can fix the programing for the trans and make it work right. other than that only major thing left to do is modify the 4wd shifter bracket to the case and get a center counsel, and trim wheel well and get Spudy to finish the bumpers (LOL) so I can get the winch installed, and 1 inner fender. YEAH HA!

Got little bit of details done on the HULK the other night before going to the dealer I got some trimming done on the rear wheel wells,
before


After


got the winch test fit before coating the front bumper


and got the overflow bottle figured out since the factory one won't fit anymore,

figured since there was so much consumed while building this project and I have a few laying around, it was only fitting

taked to the dealer last night and they said they got first gear figured out but haven't got the other 2 missing gears yet. Hope they figure it out soon, longer it's there the more $ it is!

Well guys finally got the electrical gremlins worked out , turns out the manufacturer of the wiring harness forgot to send 2wires that tell the Jeep that it is no longer a manual but now an automatic. All electrical problems went away almost instantly. Got bumpers painted today with the Dupli-Color Bed Armor, get some pics after they dry for a while so I can touch them. Gonna work on the Jeep some more tomorrow then the Little woman and I are gonna take it on a trip to Mackinac this weekend for a test drive before Jakes parents take it to Geogia.
Here's a video of 0-60 without hammering on it right out of the hole.

Hope your impressed Jake

So shortly after we got to Mackinaw City we crossed the bridge and got this pic,

Figure Jake would want a pic with the Bridge in the back ground!
So yesterday I disconnected the battery and let it sit for about half an hour before reconnecting and haven't had a problem with the idle since. Ran good all the way home. Jake here's your Hottie driving your Jeep

Default Last post from Babyjp95 for the HULK!

Well guys I dropped the HULK off to Jakes parents this morning so they could take it to him tomorrow he is supposed to travel sometime in the near future but we no how things can change with the military. Anyways I got new seats in the mail this week and it will be my final upgrade to the project until he returns to Michigan with it and I need to fix the 4wd bracket so he can get 4low. here are a couple of pics of the transformation of the interior.......
Seats...


empty interior....


always something to modify to get just the right fitment...



had to drill a couple extra holes in the bottom too...


finally got the center counsel from the dealer, which by the way was the cheapest place to get it from by $100


back seat covers fit pretty decent i think...



Final fitment of the front seats...


and finally Jake this is for you, here are the front panels removed from your hard top.....


Well guys anything else is probably going to come from Jake himself but I can tell you this it has an appointment for next week to get regeared cause the 3:21's suck and he ordered recentered H1's with 37's already so hopefully he will be posting on all that when it's finished.

I gonna miss this project, it had a few hair loss instances (as if I can afford to loose anymore) but all and all I really enjoyed it and it was a BLAST to drive, can't wait for the gears now!

Well everybody it's been a long time since anyone has heard from or about the Hulk. The Hulk has gone through a few changes since I last reported, he got the 5:13's and the re-centered H1's didn't last long. couldn't get them to balance to run down the road. Probably a great trail worthy idea but not road worthy. So got a new set of wheels and tires, Pro comps with Toyo MT's. After a month or so in Georgia Jake got restationed to Washington and on his way there the cv in the front shaft locked up and granaded the shaft and t-case, so they have been replaced. SHortly after moving to Washington Jake found a few places to play and the second day out he managed to shear all the teeth off the ring gear in the front end, so that got warrantied.
