A pretty penny. The harness work is a mint as well as I need the PCM and DBW pedal. But it has to be done.

Smiley racing. Whypave is his user name here on pirate. This is a link to his user profile if you want to get in touch with him.

/forum/members/whypave.html

He has been very eager to help and has answered all the stupid questions I've thrown at him. He has done quite a few of the 6.2/6L80 combos so I'm confident in his work. The harness and valve body from my transmission are headed out on Monday.

I had to pick all that up as well. The dbw and module ran $125, not sure what Wayne charged me just for a pcm.

Glad to know there's another vendor stepping up in to the market

Got some more finished up this evening. I removed the temporary .120 DOM cross member and replaced it with the .250 then got it all weldered up.



I still can't weld. I need to get up off the ground and build me a weld table.



Then tossed back in place and tacked up.



How it sat after. This is one inch above full compression.

Thanks guys.

Got some parts today.

Gauges.



Walbro pump



I got this and already think I'm going to ditch it. I was thinking about what I did on my last jeep and the hose clamp quick detach wix filter just isn't going to cut it.



I gotta track down the fuel filter I used on Dookey. I can't remember what it came off of.

post up what you find. I'm about to order up something for mine. LI quoted me $650, but I really don't feel like I'll need all those shut off valves.

I remember there being a corvette name in there the last time. And the filter was 5 or 6 bucks. Easy to source, screws into place, had the GM bracket to make it easy to mount.

I've been looking online this evening but I can't track it down. I even looked up who built my fuel lines last time and they don't list it. I know I'd rather adapt a screw on fuel filter rather than using some ghetto hose clamps. Especially on the pressure side of the pump.

The search continues....

No. I do not need the corvette regulator as my regulator is on the rail.

I'm thinking it probably came off a truck or something the more I think about it.

Awesome build too, by the way, I'll have to check it out in person next time we're down that way, been thinkin' about driving the CJ down this next time, we'll see.. at 9-10 mpg it'll be a pricey trip!

Yep, I believe they were.. are they still there?? lol.. anyways, I'll keep an eye on your build, I'm collecting pieces to do a similar build either with my CJ7 or the CJ5 I'm about to aquire. I really like these 4-link rigs like yours, it's a lot of fab work but there's nothing else like them..

Got my fuel cell hard mounted this evening in hopes of getting my fuel lines run this week. I need to get to the yard store and pick up some plate steel to make a new panel for under the fuel cell for better protection. But this is where it will end up.



RCI Racing has this fuel filler neck and I plan to use it. When I open the tail gate it will be an easy shot for fuel.

I plan to chop this up tonight and get it installed so I can take it to have the rear gears and locker installed.

That's funny. Diff fluid is easy. I buy the little $4 buck pump at the vato zone and a stretch of tube. I used to squeeze the bottles and it always pissed me off.
