Believe me nobody hurts more that me to see my baby like that but there will be some progress on it soon. I was out there a couple weeks ago and dropped off the 42's so that when the front suspension was done they could cycle it for clearance .The axle and engine are just kind of sitting there so that they are out of the way. Looking at the picture though does give you an idea of how far we are moving the engine back, close to 12" this and the new suspension desighn will give us twice as much up travel becausr the axle will no longer hit any of the engine.The frame is cut off now right in front of the cab and will be tubed from there out.
I have seen some of the fab work there and it is really awsome. As you have seen pics of the one next to Mad Dog. These are not getting done for two totally different reasons. Mad Dog is not done because I have run into some unexpected financial problems but It will get done I just cant say when.
Thanks for keeping the thread alive.

|Hornsfan||Funny / sad that two of the nicest built FJCs look like the junkiest right now. Hopefully they will be back on all four legs soon.|

I will not be going this year.Montrose has some great trails all harder than Ouray but some that are within your rigs capabilities. THere is a trail guide for that area, not sure if it is in book form or online I will try to find it. I was going to take ny 40 to the summitt this year but it will not be ready either.

|Hornsfan||Jeff, are you going to summit? Also, I know you wheeled some rough trails in Montross that I am certainly not equipped for. I am going there for a couple of days before summit and wanted to know if you know of some challenging trails there that are more suitable for a rig like mine (34" tires, lockers front and rear, Dana 60 in rear, RCV CVs in front, atlas and a winch)?|

|plnfixr320||I would also put a bulkhead connector at the fire wall instead of the wires running through a gromet like that. I'd also put a relay pig tail connector on those wires so nothing gets crossed if a relay swap is required. Looks really nice though.|

|Mad Dog 1||Good info ,Thanks|

Madog the SDS system is what I put in my buddies ftoy http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showt...=976492&page=2 and what is in the Marlin Crawler x chassis. Couple of suggestions, mount a spare relay right next to the one you are using. If you have a relay failure you can switch to the spare really quick.
Keep the SDS controller plugged in and mounted in the car. That way you have it if something goes wrong. Put in a air fuel meter so you can watch how rich or lean it is running.
I would switch over to circuit breakers instead of fuses. It is a little expensive but will pay off the first time you are trouble shooting on the side of the race course and run out of fuses before you find the problem. Circuit breakers can be reset over and over.

Update/She is running!
Believe it or not she started with the first turn of the key. It is almost like she was waiting for this system.

I agree with getting rid of the computer and all of the other crap. That is what we are doing,except there will be a programable computer that is very simple with out all of the extra stuff.
As far as an engine swap, yes I probably should have done that along time ago. I guess there is something kind of cool about keeping the stock engine. Once
I get the engine moved back and the front suspension redone, I will see how it performs, If I'm happywith it I may go with an LS engine but will probably save that for the buggy when I get some extra money.
