And here it is as of last night.. Just need to plumb the brakes and finish my front drive shaft and do some odds and ends. Also have a set of rockers to install but its not a priority to get the thing moving on its own power..








My buddy is 6'2" and he's about an inch taller (when you look really hard) so when I add 4" to the air shocks it should sit the same height as my TJ did before I start.. Not to bad.













Yes the pictures are not the best but it gives me motivation to get this done by the blessing May 1st.

Also I do have pink harnesses, they rock...!

You must be back from the future = pictures taken 07/12-2016 = so your jEeP will be done in about 6-7 years.

Nice cage! Is there a reason for the bend in the center of the windshield cross bar? Or, is it for asthetics?

After some testing I ran it out of gas 20 ft from the driveway..




Big thanks to Bryce for helping me with some engine issues then doing the cam re-learn and now she's running good.

Need to add some more oil to the shocks, doing that tonight.

But i have a bad pump for the full hydro, so calling PSC today to get that sorted out and hopefully get one next day aired here so I can take it to R&V this weekend...!

I thought I would be nice and show some updated pictures.

Well the plan was saturday, but that might be cutting it close considering I still have to widen my trailer 8 inches. So if I cannot make sat, I will go for sunday.

So after my first mounds trip a few weeks ago, had some issues which included:
-The underhood temp getting warm and overheating the steering resevoir and the orbital.
-The fuel cell getting overfilled and spitting fuel out of the roll over valve/ breather.

Old truss.









New truss.







I added the F.A.T.S to the Jeep and that helped with the fuel going through the ROV, also I can only run my tank at about 85-90% of 20 gallon tank. No biggy.

For underhood temps, I am getting a hood louvers to let the heat out. I also used reflective heat tape that I use at my work (2500 degs.) and that kept everything cool their mostly.

Took it wheeling yesterday and got to play around with it some more.






Time to get the rockers on asap...!



This was my GF first time actually wanting to learn spotting, so no comments about the commentary from her...
