All the stuff I do in the open top Jeeps have been the marine vinyl from JoAnn fabrics. It's easy to work with and easy to clean. They have a couple different types of vinyl. One is way thicker and harder to work with...I think it is like the stuff on boat tops, one is very stiff and harder to work with but is more abrasion resistant. The other is a fake leather stuff and is very soft and easy to work with but less abrasion resistant.

The marine stuff seems to be better in the wet stuff. Holds up well. Use a heat gun to soften it and stretch it around stuff. Remember, if you are going around a sharp edge on a box or something then sand the edge to make it beveled or rounded and the vinyl will look better. Spray glue doesn't stick very well to it so staples seem to be the best.

Component speaker enclosures are done.









And the audio interface is mounted here in the dash. Remember, I will not have a head unit. Music will come from satellite radio, iPod, iPad or iPhone.

Didn't realize speaker boxes are hardcore tech.. All that space and weight, you could of put a fuel cell in or a normal rear seat with a lower COG. Nice fabbed boxes for the Jeep, hope it sounds great on the trail.

So now when a build is going on the bling stuff isn't allowed to be posted? No no fancy paint? Better go and post in those threads. Go back and actually read the thread ok? There was never a plan for fuel cell. The reasons are listed and debated in the thread. Take your lazy ass back and read. How much lower would you like the rear seat? It only sits 1.5 inches off the tub in the front and 3/4 in the rear. The plan was for a secure, comfortable bucket seat for kid. The rear bench seat sucks. I'll never have 4 people in there so why waste the space?

So, bottom line, unless you read the whole thing and understand the thoughts and who is building this, then STFU. Thanks.

Ill never understand why some dicks around here think that if you have some tunes or a cup holder that some how excludes a rig from being hardcore. At least you fabbed up the boxes. The tunes are what helps the kids to luv the rig.

Got back at it. Been a while. Life took over and I had to use the Jeep money for other bills so the Jeep stalled for quite a while.

Spent quite a few hours wiring up the trans computer so the XJ AW4 will play nice with the YJ computer. Got the fuel pump wired up. Got the fuel filler hoses in. Filled some of the fluids. Got it started for the first time in a long time.

Finished getting the hydro ram hoses run. Mounted the power steering reservoir.....Twice....first one blew up from air coming out of the ram. Note to self, fill ram first before mounting.

No real pics of wiring. It's wires.

Checked for clearance issues and figured out how to mount the shocks and measured for bump stops.





Rear low side tub clearance. I'll bump stop it a bit further away.



Bent up the shock hoops. Added the tabs. Tacked it in.

Got the front shock hoop braces in.



And bent up some tube for the rear upper shock mount. Drilled for the upper mounts. That's 1.5 inch 1/4 wall DOM.



Welded in the mounts.



And then wended the tube in. Puts the shocks at 10-15 degrees from vertical.

Really,,,, your going to complain about the weight of of couple of speakers. I didnt realize that having nice tunes in you rig disqualified you as hardcore?

The kids he teaches luv doing that kind of stuff. Nothing better than cranking up some Nirvana while hammering done on the skinny pedal.


I must really be a puss cuz I have tunes and a cup holder in my rig!

It does move but the trans wiring is not working out. Gave up and went with the RA Designs shifter but they hosed up shipping and I didn't get it this week. Maybe next week.

Well it has been slow going because of money. Was putting off the front driveshaft because of it. This weekend's wheelin trip got me motivated.

Gonna build it ourselves.

So I got all this together from crap I have been saving.....




Cut some ends off of some things, found a like new set of splines in the pile of crap, found a chunk of DOM. Took the ends to the machine shop here at school and the kids turned the ends down to fit perfect with a press fit into the tube.





Tomorrow the welding kids are going to burn these in good. I don't trust my welding. LOL

Got the shaft welded up.





Novack shifter all tightened up and adjusted.



Front brakes are set up like the rear. One main line to the pumpkin and then hard lines out to the knuckle. Then added rubber to the caliper.



Putting the shaft in....found contact between the pinion and the u-joint. Hard to see in the pic. Seems there is a right way and a wrong way to put the joint in. I picked the wrong way. Had to remove the joint and flip it. Then it cleared.



Then went to put the shaft in and.....poop. Last bolt, SNAP. Damn it.



I've had these in my tool box for years. I mean a lot of years. Christmas stocking stuffer from a long time ago. Never used them.



Well ding dang....they worked like a charm!
