    Truly an inspiration and an incredible benchmark to the rest of us! ZJ dreams being built and chronicled for us all to drool over and learn from. I can't wait to see the finished product.

    i got the front end in after paint.


    the ram mount pulled when i welded it and wasn't able to tell until I put the knuckles on. now its painted and installed. it wont get changed. it sucks but i have bigger fish to fry at this point


    here is it at full bump









    4" of up travel. I will probably raise it up a bit

    the cooler is behind the grill on the driver side. tough to see in this pic.





    i got 55watt 6000k HID all wired up and 2 6" rigid LED bars wired into the factory fog light wiring. This way it uses the factory dash switch. I will use a diode to make the fog lights still work with the high beams.





    lows





    highs





    some under shots

    i decided to make a custom rubber boot to go from my throttle body to my intake tube.


    started with a mandrel with a few large O-Rings



    wrapped it in 1 layer of EPDM (1/16" thick)



    used some rubber impregnated cloth to define the ribs and the collars



    wrapped it in another layer of rubber and some nylon webbing



    then some clear wrap,





    waiting for the current cook in the autoclave to be done. should have results tomorrow.

    MOAR


    intake tube. 3" 304L Stainless.











    the rubber boot i made didn't turn out. i went waaay to thin on the corrugations and it tore when i was demolding it off the mandrel. I decided to just buy a boot.


    the rear dif is in. I just need to rebuild the ebrake system then it will be on its own weight.

    FINALLY


    its on its own weight. i need to play around with the springs. the rear is WAY to firm and the front is way to soft. these were just coils i had in the shop.





    this is with 3`of up travel.





    i am 5`11`it is 71`to the roof. with a 17`belly. it will be raised up 2`to have a decent amount of up travel.








    the wheels dont stick out that much either.

    Looks great! Besides the springs, how much do you have left to do before the first test drive?

    You should register now so when it's ready BAM! GSW time!



    Because Jeep.
