x2000 on the LT1. EXCELLENT choice that delivers power like an engine 2x its size.

Thanks, it is a very capable power plant for the vehicle... The best part is the fuel injection, it will run no matter how much of an angle you are on. The previous carb small block was awful off road. Always loading up and pissing me off. The only time the carb engine did well was at Silver Lake or on the road.

Thanks to our club wheeling I have a new pic of the latest addition to the Jeep Build, beadlocks. I bought a beadlock kit from TAB and built my own beadlocks. I think they have turned out and work great. I started with used rims and by the time I was done I have about $360 into a set of five beadlocks. I don't think that's too bad considering the outer ring is stainless. One thing, bolting them down is very time consuming but worth it... Also if anyone is considering doing beadlock I'd highly recommend getting them from TAB, a lot of welding and bolts but the savings is worth the time... I will try to get some better pic's and keep the progress updated.
