I can't wait for the finished product. That front end is literally bulletproof. I've got a guy in my office (not even a Jeep guy) following this thread with me.

That's a nice compliment. Maybe we can convert him. I'm gonna have to hang out with the Toyota guys until I get a bigger motor though lol.

finally came out of the garage!!!!! Cooling system is complete. We ran the water through the fender tubing and then through the sliders

If you look close you can see the radiator hoses plumbed to fender tubers

new motor for the 8274, kinda....


I found a place to put more steel, a lot can fit under here. Was thinking about tucking up the east and doing it all. Thanks for looking

Re: wanted to show off my hard work



Funny you ask because I just brought this bad boy in from my front porch! It's a die for my cage, been waiting for weeks! I have so much fab work planned that it is really kinda scary, if I listed it I may get flamed so we will just see...
I have to fab this into place, it's just mocked up and I'm doing the belly pan soon, making a temporary truss for the front axel with some small mods because I may get stuck running it for this year while I get my axles ready. I'm thinking some chromoly shafts, truss and welding the diff.... not sure. Bet I can resell the shafts for half price. I need to lock it somehow w/of busting it every trip

Kinda late for the mad eyes, thanks for the idea though. I thought about doing the lights diagonal but they wouldn't fit. My neihbor just gave me this light bar lol. freeze motha***, hehe. Probably won't use it but it's funny

Re: wanted to show off my hard work

Finally got done moving... moving sucks! New house is really badass. Smaller garage till I build a shop. I built a 8 xoxo 12 storage shed with 3 rows of shelf and it fit all my clutter! Everyone should have a clutter shed!!! Made my garage huge.

I did the front driveline convertionwith a hack and tap kit. I broke 2 driveline coupler thingies before I caught onto this trick.

hacked and tapped!

probably going to take a year or more to get my rock wells ready so I caved and started buying parts for dana. Looky, new chrome moly shafts and wheel bearings. I need position to keep up with the guys I wheel with and planning on Lincoln locking the front to get me by. You guys think it will work for a bit?

New 4.5 lift iron rock off road leaf springs, bent my old saggy ones, probably bend these too cause I'm so dam heavy

started on skid plate 2 of 3!!! I can't wait to slither across the rocks like a snake!!! Good to be working on the Jeep again!!!!
