Got a little shat done this week.
Got front axle in, new 2" upper links etc..

The axle looks like itll take a hit now!



Phone pix look a little rough. :thumbdown:

Maybe a little better pic.


Side view of the new length. Went from a 108" wb to a 113" wb, moved shockz up 4-5" so it can set a little lower. Belly will be 24" and flat. It was 24" and the skid plate hungs down 3"..


Had to put some small holes in the hood for the shocks. .here they are. Turned out pretty well, want to trim lock them/edge guard em.


All that. .and finally set the motor in tonight. Still need a hole in the firewall for the air cleaner, and finish remainder of the motor mounts.



Oh yeah quick update on my hauler.
Painted, rewired and new 1.25" white oak ruff sawn deck. .its tough!



Getting there still quite a bit of work to do..but making progress!

Pretty sure I feel a vacation day dor tomorrow. .haha see If I can get some more done. .:thumbup:

Hey smart a$$, I cut the thing in half and made it a sigle rig hauler. Pretty sure the 5000 pounds that aint on it now will make a heck of a difference. .haha.

Got somemore done on the jeep tonight. Motor is officially setting on it own in the jeep. Got 80% of the fuel system done, need 3 6an to 3/8" hose barb fittings otherwise itd be done.


Got radiator in, was able to lift motor about 3 inches, along with the trans. Need to remake both drive shafts .Hoping that ill have a flat skid plate now.



Dang oil pan on the 6.0 hangs really low. .dont think I like it..
May have to get a shorter one. There goes 300+ bux!

Well..
Totally un productive night in the barn.
First im ticked my harness hasnt been modded yet.
Feva...ill take all the tongue lashin u got..lol. ya told me so! I gotta learn from my own mistakes sometimes. .grrrr..

Well bought another stick of DOM for a hood hoop.
Screwed that up!
Forgot my parts to finish up trans crossmember at work.
Broke a 5/8" tap off in the frame, beat it out of there. .
Smashed my wrecked hand with the dead blow. .mfer..

On a good note I finished the fuel system 100%.

Came inside decided I would've been further ahead if I just drank beer on the deck..
Hoping for a better day tomorrow!.

Got the harness. Day before the club comp. .grrr
Had this week off to get the boiler set and hooked up. Got er done, spent all day today in the barn working on the jeep.
Got the whole harness wired up, and actually started the 6.0! Awesome. Fired right up first fee cranks, ides nice, throttle response is great!

Need some cleanup and engine wise its done.
Spent some time dreaming up an engine skid plate. ..this is what I got.

The front is tied to the frame on both sides. The pic is looking from the rear of the jeep towards the front axle..incase u didn't figure that out..:banghead:
Going to skin it and add a few more braces.

Ordered a factory ecm holder. ..wanted to mak sure it wasn't rattling around in the jeep. Ecm is inside the jeep, in front of the passengers feet.

Got all week to work on it..should b able to get it ready for exhaust shop by next week. .
Yaay.
Glad to start getting caught up this week.
