rocktard The plan was to head down to KOH at noon today and believe it or not the Jeep was ready. The powers that be deemed it necessary to throw a monkey wrench in the plans and stole Diablo away for another emergency job. Here are a few of the pictures I grabbed while we were in process last night I'm sure Diablo will update this weekend.

This is 8 hours prior to heading to KOH (which didn't happen).


1am is a terrible time to find out the new rocker switch doesn't work.


Most Expensive Work Bench ever!


Rock Lights




All the LUMENS!

What do you do for a living?
Damn I like this jeep!

rocktard Since diablo (aka DBlow) isn't updating this thread I'm hijacking it to show off some of the work done prior to KOH.

These are the Lexan body panels. Red panels were platidip'd.





This is the inside of the panel, just for fun.

swirvin21 was thinking the same thing as pitchit

pitchitpitchit If you have time, weld a raised ring around those skid bolts. I have broken bolts on my skid that were like that. Hope to see it at KOH!

You did very nice work - and just what I needed to see someone doing (and succeeding at).

So kudos, and best of luck with it once you hit the trail.
Thank you, your post gave me motivation to work on it

Diablo169 Well I just got off of an emergency job where I put in 125 hours in 7 days. Needless to say, I'm running out of time to get ready for KOH.

I'm trying to focus on the necessary items such as Body Panels, ARB Compressor, and lighting. I'm going to try and squeeze the Stereo in if possible.

I got the engine skid fully installed today. Frame made with 1x1 .120 wall, and skid is 3/16", Should hold up.









Did a quick front end. Smittybilt Raised Winch Mount $108 Amazon, and some Curt Tow Hooks. I also angled in the bumper ends.


I got both side panels mounted up. I just need to shape the wheel wells.

Diablo169 Yeah, It might be there till the weekend. Hopefully your garage has a weekly rate

Thanks for taking it to get smogged. Now its time to get her ready for KOH. What a better maiden voyage

EDIT: I know you used it to pick up on high school chicks, so I think we're even.

FordFascist Look what showed up at my house. But apparently it passes smog and displaced my Super Duty for a night

This, the lexan/ plexiglass what not is a terrible dust magnet, you wheel in a dusty area you'll drive blind when the sun hits the windshield. I had a racing / lexan windshield and took it out because of that and replaced it with a glass windshield, much much happier this way. Otherwise a great build and man the patience to stick with it for 6 years.

The holes are oversized, but I did tighten the bolts down pretty tight. I didn't really think about future issues. Maybe I'll switch out the washers for some rubber backed washers and then just tighten the bolts snug, and check them ever so often.

Diablo169 I can't believe how much more I have to do...

I hopefully fixed the EVAP Leak. I just flooded the Electrical Plugs on the pump with some Moto Seal. Kind of like gasket maker, but dries pretty hard. The JB Weld cracked on the filler neck, I think I applied it to thin. I coated it with Moto Seal as well, should hold at least till I get it smogged.

RockTard came over and helped me with some stuff.

I built a light bar. Probably overkill 1 1/2" .120. I cut and welded the factory mounting tabs to the new bar. Total weight with lights 29lbs!


(2) 20" Dual Row 7w Phillips from SideTracked Offroad here on pirate. Lifetime Warranty! I'm also in this pic, I'm figuring out a front Winch Mount/ Bumper. I have this new 12K Mile Marker, but I'm not sure if I want to run it.


I had him custom make them with the centers Flood, and the outside Spot. Each one has 36 7w LED's and put out 15,100 Raw Lumens. So I should have enough light for night wheeling. Also, in this pic, I'm taking measurements for extending the cowl.


I have to remake the support tube, The one I made was way to long


RockTard also helped me get the side templates made up. Using straight cuts of paper board makes everything easier!




Perfect fit both sides, first try I had to reorder Rivnuts so, I'll wait till I get the panels fully mounted to mark out and trim the wheel openings.

Diablo169 ^ That is exactly what I did, good call! I pulled the vent line to the tank and I probably over pressurized the system. I turned it down to about 4-5psi. I hope I didn't blow out the seals, I read during test, it only tests at about .25psi.

Looks like the filler neck is still leaking I checked, it's not the Gas Cap. It also looks like the electric connectors on the Fuel Pump Assembly are leaking, not sure how to deal with that one.

Odd thing, I erased the code, and I can't get it to come back.



01-02-2016 07:22 PM
gmcxt If you had a trust worthy pressure regulator you might be able to put 5psi of shop air into the system pre Purge solenoid. Then work your way back and spray down system with soap and water. You may have to jumper wire the vent Solenoid Shut.

Diablo169 I'm loosing a little motivation. My vacation is almost over and I haven't been able to smog it yet

Here are some pics of my exhaust that I put together. It works pretty well. Flow master sounds like a wet fart, wish I would of saved the $90 bucks and just run a straight pipe

Here is the front section. It clamps to the Y that is below the front of the engine. Piping is 2 1/2" to the Cat, and then 2 1/4" after the Cat.


Hard to tell, but I was able to raise the exhaust about 1 1/2" higher than from the factory.



I used these pieces to make the after cat section. 2 1/4" 180, FlowMaster Super 44 Center 2 1/4" In & Out.


It also clamps in.


Everything clears well, and I think I can still fit a Sway Bar. I still need to add one more rear hanger.


Also, I replaced the Clutch Master and Slave Cylinder. I wasn't getting full clutch disengagement, so I figured a bad master. Luckily I was able to remove the whole system together, which made bench bleeding it much easier. Parts are from RockAuto. RhinoPac items look high quality, hopefully they hold up.

It works.
I was watching some YouTube videos on making your own smoke test machine. I have a few more options hopefully before I go that route.

Thank you, windshield made a huge difference with my eyes not watering when driving over 10mph, and cut down on the chill substantially! Not wide enough. Trailer is 83" Jeep is 89" Front and 88" Rear. I have future plans to widen it and build drive over fenders. For now I am driving over the right fender, and smashing it pretty good.
