Thanks Carl! Was hoping you and a few others from the board were gonna make it to Oak Ridge.

OK I been slacking on updates so here we go.


You know you have an amazing wife when she doesnt complain about the parts store in the den! LOL


Kay (said amazing wife) helping me out one evening. I think she just wants the parts out of the den! LOL


Rear resrvoirs mounted.


Here you can see the end result of the armor mods to make it semetrical.


Thought the space under the tailgate just looked to plain now so I made another piece of 3/16 armor to fill the area and go around the hinges.
You can also see the Rigid Industries lights that BW suggested. I used them as reverse lights. Thanks Eric for pointing these out man they worked out great!


Buddy the owner came down to visit and check things out. Here Im fitting him to the cage seats shifters etc.


Front clip back on . . . note to self dont install rails until front clip is on or you will have to pull them off again just to get to the darn holes for the fenders! :banghead::rolleyes:


Engine cover turned out great! Painted the holley coil covers as well but they are gonna take a bit of work to get installed!
That engine compartment got cramped all of a sudden! LOL

What do you think guys?

Those fenders are spot on... Lines flow great.

Like to see more pics of inner fenders and mud shielding.
Looks like from one pic that U got gaps way better than factory did :)

Do you have any pics of the diffs specifically where the Coilover mounts to them? Also what length are they?

I'm with ya! Between the lack of capture nuts in the Aqualu tub for the seats, no studs for the clutch linkage, powder coating, and polishing underneath so my spider was shiney, I got really really really good at pulling my Ricochet Rockers on and off too! I probably installed and removed the left side 7 times. Your Jeep looks great!

I think I lost count as to how many times I pulled those darn ricochet rockers on and off!:banghead:
Good news is I can do it blindfolded by now!:shrug:

Excellent choice in quotes btw! LOL

Glad to be home! The camper (RTT) had to come off the CJ since it made it to tall. :( While I was at it I hacked off the crappy exo-rack. The tent ended up on the XJ which is stuck in Customs hell/prison until they feel like releasing it. No word on the CJ yet either.
Glad to see your making sick progress on the big money build. :)

Sorry for the lack of updates recently guys but she is done!






The 6.0 sounds awesome and the power is great! The suspension worked flawlessly all weekend and this thing in double low is a joy to watch crawl over the rocks with ease.

Still have some minor things to finish,a few changes, and a lil tuning to do but we brought her to the Nationals this past weekend and had a blast! As soon as I get the action pics from my buddy Rob I will post them later as well as the last of the build process.

What ya think guys?
