Next was to turn the intake around and run it inside the tub. Installed the ecm on the inside of the firewall. A guy out of grand rapids programed it for me. Very reasonable price $150. Picked up a nice set of Flotech headers that fit pretty good. Started on the wiring harness. It took me about a week to do and that was working on it every night after work and probably 2 weekends working most the day. I was pretty suprised when i turned the key for the first time it turned over. Had to get a fuel pump for it. I installed a yj tank as a fuel cell and put a chevy high pressure pump in the yj sending unit. Was a easy swap. Also wanted a tilt wheel so i installed this Chevy column out of a 96 manual trans silverado. Had to do some fab work to make mounts for it. But its all about being diffrent. Once i had the fuel pump installed i turned the key and she fired right up. I was pretty suprised i wont lie. But now i know exactly what you need to made a chevy 5.3 run.

Well from this point i installed those ford 60s. Had a group of freinds coming over here to go to the dunes for the holliday. I had to work all week. So i figured i better take it to my buddys shop in whitehall the week of memorial weekend. He worked on it for atleast 50 hours that week just doing all the little BS. Break lines had to be ran. Breaks installed. Radiator plummed. Shifter made. Rear driveshaft made. Traction bars. Roll cage mounts to the frame. Steering shafts built. Seat belts. And the list goes on. All that little stuff you dont realize the time and cost adds up real fast. That week set me back alittle. But we pulled it out of the shop on thurdsday night a 2am with open headers, "Down town whitehall" Loaded it on the trailer. That was the first time i drove it. Took it to exhaust specialties the next morning. Got dual 40 series installed. Picked it up after work. Unloaded it off the trailer at Sharpe machines. Took it for a rip. Loaded it back up and headed to the dunes. Took it on the dune saturday. Beat on pretty good. Ened up breaking it sunday. Caught air came down and snapped a u joint. Fixed that within the next month and took it out for the 4th of july. 2nd day i broke both u joints. Tail shaft housing. Bent the tail shaft. Thats what happens when you have too bad of a angle with you dshaft and too much travel. Bottomed it out and that was the result. With all that being said i orderd a Slip yolk eliminator from jb conversions the week before memorial weekend. They said it was on back order for atleast 6 weeks. It showed up the week after the 4th. Thankfully because i sure needed it. That tcase ended up being junk. Baught another one from Fullsize for life. BTW thanks again. Good guy to deal with.

Recieved my slip yolk eliminator. Orderd it to come with the flange. Picked up a dodge front dshaft off a 1 ton he was parting out. "project lugnuts" from Sharp Machine. Shortened it up and Put some new ujoint in it. Good CV drivshaft. Lots of movement. The slip yolk eliminator shortens up that np241 9 inches. I paid a little over 50 dollars a inch. lol But hey its sure does make my jeep functional now. Iv been rockin it out ever since and havent had any problems. Installed some led turn signals and tail lights.

Well this is how she sits today. Just picked up a rear veiw mirrow out of a tahoe with temp and compass on it, Installed that tonight. Another part thanks to Sharp machine. If anyone has any detailed questions feel free to give me a shout. Im glad its done enought to drive. I drive it daily as long as its not raining. Still need to get a bikini top for it. I think this is about the fastest build post. Finished a jeep in 3 days. lol Ill post a build sheet of what parts are from what.

Disk breaks installed last week. Then back up to the dunes to test it out over the weekend. Took it up to ludington twice this weekend. Cant believe how well it rides down the freeway doing 70. Sure doesnt feel like a big lifted jeep. It cruises. Drives straight as a arrow. Bring on the road trips.

I regretted ever building a Jeep with a fiberglass body. I would rather have dents then broken body parts and cracks everywhere. Mine was pretty beat up when I finally sold it.

Yours looks nice though.

Yes, that was my reasoning too. I used to do fiberglass repair, but I really dont want to be repairing the body, I am fine with dents, just not broken cracked up glass and paint. I bashed the snot out of mine. OK, jm .03$
