Yea, I might have to do that. I found a set of shorty headers in the summit catalog for $99. That is cheaper that the Hedmans that JBS said he is using. The only difference looks like the summit's are made of 1 5/8" tubing into 3" collectors and the hedman's are 1 1/2" tubing into 2 3/4" collectors i think. I wonder if I would be better off using the smaller hedmans? I'm not really hurting for room up around the headers, it isn't until you get down to the frame rails that you start running into trouble, so smaller diameter headers wouldn't help in that area. How do you like the headman's JBS? Do they dump out in the right location so there is room to attatch the pipes and route them out through the back?

I don't think there is going to be any issues. Things are a bit tight, but that can be worked around once I get around to building my exhaust. My current debate is either running a pipe down each side, or have a y-pipe by the engine on the pass side and run down the pass side only. The hole I have to work with on the drivers side don't leave alot of room for heat to move around and might cook the brake fluid and fuel line. I might get it on the hoist at work to do all my cut and paste one of these days.

I am going with the Y pipe idea. I still have the exhuast system intact all the way up to the motor. I just need to come from the headers down through the rails and to the existing exhaust. So I am just going to take the easy way out. It hink the dual exhaust would be the way to go if you can make it work. So you do like the hedman headers I can assume? I think I am going to order the summit's. They are the block hugger design just like the hedmans, so they should work. And a hell of alot cheaper than Novak! I'll just have to paint them properly. I'm thinking of using some header wrap. Has anyone heard anything bad about that stuff? It's supposed to reduce engine bay temps.

The Hedman's fit perfect. There are different block huggers, dimension wise. Some are wider than others. I figured the max width I had to work with then went thru the Hedman book.

As for the wrap, pass. It'll make the headers brittle and crack from keeping the heat inside. Most companies won't warranty headers if they've been wrapped.

My new JK shocks.


Took a few of these to widen them for the front shocks.


Ans finished. They are slotted so it fits the stock T-bar bolt holes in front and makes the shock a bolt on.


The first shot, stock shocks with the T-bars removed then sleeved.


BLING!! Thanks Creepy.



Slow but sure. More slow............

Slow is the only way these things go.

With this thing, it's either slow or stop.

It's more stop. I do this stuff for a living, I don't want to work on mine.

Looking good

That's looking very nice JBS. Love the new bling, very cool. I ended up getting the ceramic coated headers from Novak. They look nice but were a bitch to install. I had to unbolt the motor mounts and lift it back up a few inches to get the collectors down through the rails. There is only about a half inch clearance on each side between the collector and the frame rail. Actually had to take one of the motor mount bolts back out. Should be no problem though. The Novak mounts have about six bolts holding it onto the rails, so one less shouldn't hurt. I am to the wiring stage now. I may need some tips from you on how to wire this thing. I screwed up and didn't label anything when I removed the 2.8, so I have a mess of wires and don't know where any of them go. Thought I could figure it out later, but now I'm having trouble.

Nothing new to report other than picking up stuff here and there for the time when I finally have enough ambition to work on this. I got bends for the front pipes, a Flowmaster Y-pipe and band type clamps for it so it can come apart if anything needs attention down the road.

Got a front hitch for it too, damn thing had zero recovery points on the front and instead of trying to engineer something, I found this. It has recovery points on it as well as a 2" receiver and the thing bolts on using existing holes minus 2 that need to be drilled. It will hide behind the air dam with a square cut out for the receiver to poke thru.

Snagged a set of leaves from a newer XJ with a decent add-a-leaf that I'm going to rob it from, just want a extra inch or so once those crap coil over shocks are gone.

I just don't feel like working on the damn thing. One of these days, I'll drag it to work and put it on the hoist and get everything done in a day. (Stranger things have happened)

Pics will come too.

I can has cheezeburger now?

What lights, headlights? I did nothing. As far as the dash, I'm using the stock senders for oil/water. My speedo is mechanical and that screws in my S-10 transfer case. With yours being computer controlled, it's hard to say what you'll need to get the dash to work.
