    Not finished yet (lol, this thing never will be) will box it in to pull cold air from the fender vent.

    Jeep CK-8 Build

    Thanks, the guy dropped out of the deal not long after I started it. So, for now, it’s mine and just working on it on my free time. But it’ll go months without being touched. I think it sat for a whole year at one point. Lol

    Jeep CK-8 Build

    I’ve worked on some plumbing with the coolers in the rear and remote filters and thermostats for each. They will also have a manual override switch for each one. The filters are in the fender wells, the JKU frame is wider than the CJ so they’re protected and will be covered with a plate. We also...

    I’ll try and get you guys some updates. I’ve had a little Coronacation downtime to pull this build out of mothballs...........

    Jeep CK-8 Build

    Sorry, been a busy, busy year. No updates as of now. The workload has been so much that the Scrambler hasn't been touched since last year. Every time I think time will be available something comes up. I will update the next time we get to it.

    Lost our Jeep Pup

    I lost my best friend, a black lab mix, after 17 years. It was hard to adjust. We swore we wouldn't have another. 2 weeks to the day of his departure a white coydog (part coyote part dog) started showing up at our place when the pack would come through and leave. I guess they did not welcome her...

    Jeep CK-8 Build

    We've been so busy with stuff this summer and fall that no time had got spent on the build. I did want a break from the everyday headache and get away by working on the mounting of the oil and transmission coolers. Only a couple hours but it was a good change for a bit. It will have a skid plate...

    Jeep CK-8 Build

    Not a CJ, but a nice 2006 TJ. My wife had mentioned the other day that she wouldn't mind having another blue TJ like I use to have, but an automatic. Well, me being the awesome husband I am, found a clean one 3.5 hours away and had it for her within 48 hours of her making the statement. Then...

    Jeep CK-8 Build

    The transmission cooler (large Griffin) and oil cooler (small Griffin) are going under the bed where the OEM fuel tank would go. I made a frame for them and a couple hinges and welded a piece of channel between the frame rails. It will fold down to access the lines and fan wiring. They will have...

    Jeep CK-8 Build

    I hadn't updated my project for a while because I haven't done anything to it, for a while. Lol, that seems to be the way it goes. I did get my driveshafts made from a highly recommended local shop. I like em. I got my oil and transmission coolers, I believe they should do the job. I worked on...
