Pretty exciting stuff for the team next year.
Check out our new 40' Enclosed Gooseneck Trailer.
I started a build thread here:

So, I go to Jeepspeed rules...
Everything looks good there, other than the obvious tire requirement.
Your rules also state to follow BITD rules. I go to the BITD site and it directs me back to the 3700 Class JeepSpeed rules. Do I have to follow BITD cage rules? My 5000+lb car with 1.75" tubing won't pass tech.
It wouldn't even pass Ultra4 for 2014 if it hadn't been tagged this year prior to the weight/cage rule change.
|11-19-2013 05:59 PM|
I'll definitely keep that in mind. It's always good to know I'm welcome somewhere else! I'm also extremely interested in running V2R, but need to develop a larger crew first.
We are hoping to have a pretty full schedule in 2014 racing the Ultra4 Western Regional Series.
So, out of curiosity, is there anything you saw on my vehicle which doesn't meet the technical inspection requirements in the 3700 class?

|FC4X4||Thanks, Dan! Good to see you, sorry we missed each other at the Pirate get together; it was a zoo of people.|

|D_sach||Good to See you guys here in Vegas! Rig Looked Great.|
|11-06-2013 05:19 PM|
We've been having a great time at SEMA... and got a great spot outside the Central Hall.

Some shots of the dashboard remodel. It's pretty simple and worked great in our last race. I have a number of things I want to add over time as budget allows, including some gauges. Right now we are using the Superchips TrailDash for all of our monitoring functions.

I am sorting through some pictures from the recent improvements, but thought I would post this re-cap video in the mean time.

|David Taylor||really like the color|

We had another great thrash-fest on the rig. Thanks again to Cody & Rick for coming out. This weekend, they were also joined by Danny & Oscar. I couldn't do it without these guys! We got a bunch done in preparation for the Four Corners 4x4 Show & Swap tomorrow. It won't be running, but should show pretty well.
Got the rear interior put back together. The Jaz fuel cell, Artec fuel cell bracket, Artec Quart Crate, Powertank bracket, and fire extinguisher bracket were all powder-coated and reinstalled. We've also got a brand new 35" BFG Krawler mounted up as a spare to a new Raceline beadlock wheel.
Got the Coolshirt Blowers cleaned and hooked back up.
A shot of the dash panels and approximate layout.
A shot under the dash showing the new location of the battery and ECM.
Hot damn... the Jeep I've always wanted! And, a pretty cool dog to boot.

Looks great! Thats the same color mine used to be(will be again someday) It looked like it had some pearl in it from the first pictures. Next time the windsheild is off you need to paint it with a satin black instead of flat. Should match pretty good then.
Getting close to not being the "really stock LJ build" it started out to be lol!
|09-19-2013 08:52 PM|
Yup. You were right. Turned out awesome. I really need to paint my Savvy armor.
I have an Impact Orange LJ with unpainted Savvy armor. Looks ok. But what you have done sir...looks great.
|09-19-2013 07:27 PM|
Thanks! Windshield frames are required.
220.127.116.11 Stock body (body is considered to be the full cab, including all interior and exterior sheet metal, bed, doors, hood, fenders, grill, etc.) required. The body must be complete and unmodified, with the following limitations and exceptions: Holes may be cut in any part of the body for the single and exclusive purpose of allowing roll cage tubes and transmission/transfer case linkage to pass-through the body.
|09-19-2013 05:57 PM|
Question: Why the windshield frame?
Edit: looks killer btw.
|09-19-2013 05:42 PM|
Got some more body panels on today.

|FC4X4||Drop me a line.|
|09-18-2013 09:10 PM|
|Austin007||Damn dude that thing looks good. I'll have to drive by again and take a look at it one of these days.|
|09-16-2013 01:02 PM|
I said red not orange!
At least the black arms will match.
Looks nice, Jason.
|09-16-2013 08:00 AM|
|FC4X4||The paint color is GM Tanger Orange. We picked it primarily to match our logo, but also wanted something a little brighter.|
|09-16-2013 06:40 AM|
Looks good! What color did you end up using?
|09-15-2013 02:10 PM|
I have to give a shout out to my friends Cody DeClusin and Rick Jenkins (4x4tricks) for their help re-assembling the LJ this weekend.
We have an ambitious fall schedule planned and will be at the Four Corners 4x4 Show & Swap in Farmington, the WEROCK Grand Nationals in Cortez, the Dirt Riot National Rampage in Bridgeport, and SEMA in Las Vegas!

I think when you see it all together, that the orange belt line will make sense. We did consider it, but it definitely would have added another element of complexity to an already time-consuming tear-down.
We did powder-coat everything loose that we could with Matte black. The cage, grill, and windshield frame were painted with Epoxy paint. Unfortunately, the sheen between the epoxy paint and the powder coat did not end up matching as well as we had expected.
It's coming together now, though. How do you like the new tailgate? It's 14ga aluminum broken 5/8" around all sides. I probably picked up an easy 10lbs here over the stock tailgate.
|09-14-2013 11:01 AM|
Love the orange and black paint scheme! I would've liked to have seen the tub strikers painted black to match the sliders but it still looks awesome.
Any reason you chose painting over powder coating the aluminum?
