You might want to put a temp gauge on your steering.

I would be concerned that it might run too cool with that monster cooler on there.

Maintaining maximum viscocity will be key for your extreme rock bouncing style.
I don't plan on turning much. I figured I'd just go straight.

Got the interior finished up tonight, Happel worked his ass off getting things put back together. Subs, seats, shifters, cutting brakes, heater are all mounted. Got the rear brake lines plumbed and studded the axle for routing. The steering resi got mounted as well as mocked up the steering and got the tie rods tacked together. I still need to notch the frame for the ram, weld the tie rods, mount the orbital and plumb it as well as set up the front end and see if this hog is going to run.

There is also some finish welding that needs to be done in the front. I need to pull all the rear links and antisieze the joints, bolt the ore's up and it should be ready to go.

I ordered flanges today from advanced adapters for the Atlas, I'm going to run 1350 cv's with a 1350 at the front axle and a 1410 at the rear. I do have a 1310 standard unbolt yoke and a 1310 cv yoke if anyone is looking for some atlas yokes, both 32 spline. The list is getting smaller. It seems I cross two things off and add 3 more.

Didn't get a whole lot done today. We put a stereo in my buddies Nautique. He bought some WET SOUNDS.........INCREDIBLE. I could not believe the clarity at 75 feet little lone 150 FEET!!!!!!! CRAZY


Now on to the "OSS" He Brought the wooom pow tonight, got it running. Pulled all the coil wires and let it crank to build oil pressure, took about 15/20 seconds, once it came up plugged everything in and it cranked twice and fired up. It took a little bit to clean out and it settled in at an idle. 30 lbs of oil pressure at idle and about 70ish off idle wrapping it up a little bit. Motor has been sitting since 2006...........

I wanted to give a big thanks to Happel, Rickets, Jones, and Bishop for helping out today, we got a ton of work done......Rear end is complete, interior is complete minus mounting the computer. The front end is finish welded, frame is notched for the steering, tie rods are built, rims were disassembled, inner safety bead duct taped, airsoft bb's added, bolts antisiezed and aired back up. The front frame is painted baring a couple touch up areas. I still need to mount the orbital, set up the front end and put it back together. I'm waiting on a few critical parts, flanges from AA, so I can measure for my driveshafts.

Also, the KEVCO pan is leaking at the the remote filter connection. I guess it is bent, I didn't notice it when i put it together, but that was a few months ago. Looks like I'll be pulling the pan to beat it back out.

Looks good.

I have ZERO experience on the topic but I remember reading some other threads about bent/leaking Kevco pans.

You might want to search around.......might save some headache.

Don't let Bishop go unsupervised on the grinder

I found out about the bent pans after I put mine on, they seem to warp where the AN fittings are welded to the pan. It should be a remove, bend the pan, reinstall type of fix. I should have payed more attention during the original installation. I found the "bent pan" threads after the fact. There was guy that said his was out .009, I figured it was worth a shot to try it out. A pair of vice grips fixed the leak, used them to very lightly clamp the pan to the block.


He was in full affect on my steering tie rods..........and on my driveway.

He was on 5hour energy so no sleeping. I'm pretty sure if it hadn't been for that, he would have been out.

Thanks again for the tube Gettelfinger, you can see I put it to good use on the front. I only used 4 inches so I have plenty left over.

That was the only part he was procrastinating on ordering. It was a bit on the pricey side.

I wasn't able to work on the jeep last night, but when I got home, all the painting had been done, the new wheel studs pressed in the front hub, the front axle was painted and I had a bunch of parts on the floor from the UPS man, new brake caliper, plug wire, fuel pressures regualtor vacuum hose and some heat shield for the oil lines. THANKS HAPPEL


Also I got some radiator hose adapters from Jags that Run, they are some nice units.

I wanted to throw this out there, I dumped 6 quarts of oil in this thing, it has the Kevco 5qt F-body pan, with -10 braided hose going to the external oil filter and it just hit the add oil mark. I ran some quick volume calculations on the 6ft of -10 line, it roughly holds .4 quarts of oil. (Thanks WideJ, I had some fuzzy math going on, I'm not a math guy). Its really hard to believe, but makes sense. It looks like its going to take 6.5-7qts to fill this hog up including the filter.

I need to order some drive slugs, and set the front ring and pinion up, hopefulyl I can get that done this week. I'm working with my help to schedule some time.

I was informed yesterday that when we start my build, in about a year, that I need to remember to budget 2 grand just for beer. It was a slight miscalculation on Honchos build sheet.

Farmer, I said the Knobs crew needed to make a road trip to the big D.

I'll turn some wrenches on your junk.

Better yet, move your ass back to the hood brotha.

Got the orbital mounted tonight and fabbed up a steering shaft. Starting to check a few more things off the list.

Ran into a problem, my front ring and piņon has a few small nicks in the ring gear, never saw it before, looks like I'll be using these as a spare and get a new set of 5.38's for the front.

Thanks Josh, I'm ready to get it done, but there is no way it would be anywhere near where it is today without the Happy, he has been with me every step of the way.

Hopefully this thing will be on the trail in the next month or so.

Happel, I'll buy all the beer you can drink to borrow your mad skillz.

I got you covered on the ring & pinion if you need one ASAP.
