Boy, that build is coming right along, and it looks really good.

How difficult will it be to remove the engine, if you have to do that at some future time?

Man! It's taking me forever to finish it up. Just got short on time.

I don't think it's going to be too bad yanking the motor, but I think I may have painted myself into a corner as far as pulling the T-case. I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Just think how much more work it would have been if you didn't already have a running buggy to transfer the parts from. I know I've got a L.....O.....N.....G build ahead of me.

I havn't had much to update for a while. No time to work on it. Anyway, here are a couple more progress pics. The front end and winch mount is finished. I added some expanded metal to go between the radiator and the winch to keep the cable out of there.
Also the hydro assist steering is on. I still need to mod the steering box.

The tail light and license plate mounts are done too. The fab work is almost finished. I just need to make an anti wrap bar for the rear and a place for the cooler, tools and a place for my dogs to ride.

Here is one with the LED's in. I had to cover up the plate because the reflection was making my camera screw up.

Thanks! I still have a wiring mess to take care of. I want to strip all the unneccesary stuff out. Wiring is NOT one of my strong points.

Simple digital systems this is a fuel managment only system. I think its about $800.00 with this you dont use any stock wiring you dont have to run the stock air box you do have to run distributer from a carbed motor. they have a few diffrent systems but D-TOY used sds fuel management system which is what I have. check out thier web site

It does sounds like a great way to go, but unfortunatly, that's not in budget right now.

Got this Trail-Gear rear diff cover a couple days ago. For the money, it's pretty sweet!

Here is an installed pic. I like the way it fit's on axles that have relocated spring perches to correct pinion angles. The bottom stays pretty flat, where the pipe cap covers tend to hang down a bit lower. Evnetually I'll cut the bottom of the diff and plate it to gain a little ground clearance, but for now, I just want to get it on the trail.

Deer season is over, so I'm getting back to work on my rig. It's only going to be a two seater so I built an area behind the seats for storage and for the dogs to ride. I picked up some ammo cans and mounted them behind the seat too. My wife is going to make a big padded cover to go over the expanded metal.


The anti wrap bar is finished too. The tubing is 1-1/2" x 1/4" wall DOM mounted with heims. The heim at the shackle end has high misalignment spacers and should have no clearance issues. The shackle is made out of 2" wide x 3/8" thick hot rolled, mounted with Toyota leaf spring bushings and an 18MM shackle bolt. Still need to make up some spacers so I can get rid of the big stacks of washers.

I have a gear shelf in the back of my CJ7 that has expanded metal on it.
I found that rubber sheeting that's used for pickup truck bed liners makes
an excellent cover for the expanded metal.

SanDiegoCJ,
Thanks for the idea! I have bed liner/mat out back that will work perfect.
Today I got about all the fab finished, and the paint is almost finished. Many thanks to one of my friends Doug for coming over and helping with the paint.
Still have a wiring nightmare to get thru, but damn it's getting close.

Two questions...
I'm right in the middle of plumbing the motor I got from a friend. The motor is a 22RE out of a 94. I have an RCI fuel cell that has pickup and a return fittings. The pickup has a tube that runs to the righthand rear corner (circle track stuff) and a return with a rollover valve.
I have the cell plumbed from the pickup to an inline fuel filter, then the pump (E2000), then hardlined to the engine campartment with a short piece of steel braided line hooked to the stock fuel filter.
Then a return from the injectors back to the cell. I don't have a vent, and I have been told that I dont need one. So, how does that work?
Second, I had the piece of steel braided line disconnected from the stock filter and stuck in a fuel jug, turned on the fuel pump and let it run for a little while to flush the new hardline. The I hooked it up to the fuel filter and turned the pump on again. I heard a hissing noise and fuel started spraying out from the intake manifold area. It was a LOT of fuel. Pretty much a sprinkler. I shut the pump off went and got a flashlight to see where the fuel was coming from. Turned the fuel pump back on...... No leak! I went over the entire system and couldn't find any leaks anywhere else, and the "sprinkler" leak was no longer leaking at all WTF???

Here are a couple pics of how it's set up.

This weekend has been pretty good for the most part........... Until I got to the electrical. It's becoming painfully obvious that I don't know what I'm doing. The biggest problem is that I have two connectors that are wired in close to the connectors that attach to the ECU. Unfortunately I don't have a FSM for this motor, so I have no idea what is what. Anyone have a service manual with electrical schematics for a 94 22RE that I can borrow, in Tucson? Here is the current rats nest.

Here is the ECU and the two connectors I'm refering to.

Throw all that crap away and talk to Carey at GotPropane.com. He will hook you up with a killer propane setup. Once you go propane you'll never go back to gas on a crawler.
