Got the steering orbital mounted. Lines ran. I am seriously running out of room around the engine. Didn't have the feed line from reservoir to the pump so I'll stop by a hydraulic shop tomorrow and get some. Then I'll finally be able to steer and let the engine run to burp the cooling system.

With this being the extreme series kit it has a monster reservoir. And 12an feed lline
For now I'm going to mount the reservoir to the shock tower crossbar. It keeps the feed line at a downward angle from reservoir to pump. And only needs a 4" feed line.

Finally this motherfucker moved under its own power. I need to adjust the links and point the pinion up father the straps are hitting the Yoke at the transfer case end the on the front driveshaft. The Ori definitely need redone. But it's fun to drive and low gear on the transfer case load gear on the planetary first it will spin the tires with no effort.
Apparently I don't have the rail shifter hooked up right I'm gonna have to look into that because it's not doing anything.

Re did the ori pressures. 150 lower psi is much much better at controlling body roll.

Still need to figure out the rail shifter but I'm making progress

Your progress on this is amazing! 6 months and almost ready to wheel

I agree. I still have to shape the ends. I can wheel with a stupid looking bumper so it's low on the list.

Need to put a trans cooler on because the cooler lines don't seal on the radiator ports.

Make sure the u joint straps aren't hitting the driveshaft still.

Decided to add a external transmission cooler hopefully it helps engine run a little cooler also. Got to rad designs rail shifter working. Some solder on the power wire was touching the inside of the housing. snipped that back and now it works as it should.

Going to Tuttle Creek Kansas Thursday and Friday to do a good shakedown run

Went to Tuttle creek Kansas today. Did some mild wheeling. And I gotta say that thus thing gets around good. The ori struts ride smooooth. No bad noises. Had to winch a side by side out of the mud. Bumper held fine. Steering worked awesome. Brakes were great. Engine didn't get hot even though it was 97 degrees out.

Turning radius sucks. I need to trim the steering stops so I can get full use of the ram.

Need to hammer the drivers floorboard. Driveshaft hits it at full stuff. Rear struts need more psi in the upper chambers. Bottomed out a bit.

Back to Kansas Saturday. Wheeled with some other xjs and had a good time. Rig held together fine. Did some more challenging trails and pushed it a little. Still happy with how it's handling on the trails.

Video of me going through the upper part of the rock garden. I chose easier lines this trip just because I wanted to make sure I got out of there without breaking anything.
