Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Snowballing projects...just my kind of thing.

Nice to see I am not the only one to find a bolt trapped between the timing cover and pulley.

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

My dry filter got here today for 12 bucks I like it. Will probably get a outers prefilter for it.
Offcourse for some reason I bought a k&n to. Ill probably return it I'm not huge on oiled fiters

Headlight harness is in and grill is going in. Seem to be coming up short on nut inserts and screws.

Lights tomorrow and hopefully be back to rolling this weekend

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Lights didn't get here yet. That's okay gave me time to get the k2 harness buttoned up and see if it made an improvement. I do think it did.

It's hard to get pictures of lights. When the LEDs get here I'll install one along side the halogen.

I also dont know if these are high or low beams my switch on column is broken. Hoping to fix that with a new column shortly

Walking back they dont seem to be blinding

Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Thanks.
That's good eye on the saw. I've wanted one for years and finally did it. It's so darn handy cuts straight n true and cool. Its very useful making cuts to do exhaust bends.
Will be doing a exhaust on my friend's jeep looking forward to some pie cut bends.
Then mine later on. My down pipe is smashed from when my motor mounts were letting the motor dent it against the driveline

I dont think I have anymore of the slider install . I just welded them in didnt add a angle iron like some do. Need to do frame stiffners then make some supports tied from sliders to frame. Like these.

I'm amazed how well these 50dollar lights work. Makes me wonder what a 100 dollar pair would do.
I'm not huge on bolting lights on the bumper these will keep me from doing that. At least for awhile.

Still buttoning up under the hood to do then move on to something else.

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Met my goal and have 4 functioning fenders. Not 100% but done enough.

Theresthings I'd do differently if I did this again but I'm happy with the outcome.
Now I can do a roof rack tire carrier land it on fender and punch a tube through body behind the rear seat and tie to the roof rack cage. Hehe.

These are the last pics on this project.

I need to stock up on a couple more tubes incase we get locked down.

Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

YEP! Those came out badass man!!!

It’d kill me to do that good, and get that over spray up front- my ocd would eat me alive! Lmao luckily touch up is pretty easy for you

I’m lacking a bender, but seriously want to ditch the plastic ($$$$) bushwhacker shiot that came on my Jeep when I got it.

Sounds like you have plans for at least a semi exo cage? That’s my goal one day.. inner cage roof rack halo to tube fenders like you got goin on.

Lights and grill look nice too- I think that grill is 80s? Like 87-89... probably way off

Thanks yes probably semi exotic but with a few bars crossing through.

I think it's going to all get all sprayed green I thought black fenders would be cool but I think all green would look better now or khaki.

I'm loving the bender. Cant wait to get a full sized spare on it. I have a way with taking out tires. Concerns me when I'm 40 mile's from a paved rd.
