Ive had one hell of a year. House flooded resulting in a whole house renovation that I have done 99% of the work myself on, then been slammed at work, lots of turn over, worked on equipment way more than I ever have. Just one thing after another. That said, I just got back to working on this sucker!


Rear end is in it for good! Was planning to have it sitting on its own weight tonight but Im stuck in traffic in Atlanta trying to get home from a job site.


Front shock tabs finally skinned


Rear inner fenders boxed in and painted






Dash and console coming together




Fender pieces in process, used the same pattern for the screens as I did on the basket in the back






Front frame rails are painted up!

Jeep is sitting on its own weight!!!



Got that Cali lean going without the engine/trans/TC installed





Weve been planning to use a remote oil filter since day one because the factory oil filter mount sticks almost straight out from the motor 8 and would hit frame rails. So the time finally came to get the billet piece installed on the motor and rebuild the oil pump while we were at it and we discovered a broken front timing cover. Thats led to a little deeper dive into the motor, but hopefully Toms going to have that finished pretty soon so we can get it installed and see how good a job I did guessing spring rates!

Some brake line details. These clamps are bad ass for the hard lines down the links, super clean!

Did you make those brake line clamps yourself, or can they be bought somewhere?

Rig is looking great.

Theyre bought! Came from AJK Offroad. Also using their hydro hose clamps to run steering hoses and brake line down a front link.

Is there a reason you mounted the front tires backwards?

Lol. Funny part is you did it twice! I first spotted it at the top of the page. Then you had them off again so I figured it was just mock up and you would fix it, but then they were back on the wrong way again.

Thought there may have been a valid reason. I seem to recall I. The old days people ran boggers backwards for better churn in the mud or some shit like that.

Awesome build. I like the colors, copper and gloss black always looks cool on an old truck. I really dig all of the sheet metal fab and tubing work is top notch. It is a unique cage, and whoever thinks itll collapse has never flopped a rig.or.been in a rollover. Ive seen some aftermath of a few rollovers (and was in one of them with NO cage!!) at higher dirt road speeds, that cage is stout and wont collapse unless u drop it 5000feet upside down. Keep up the awesome fab work!!! Thanks for posting, lets try and keep this awesome site full of resources and knowledge from going shitty, thanks for the extra effort to post and upload pics.!!!!

Watching your build progress. Looks nice.
Noticed you're running 42 trips. I bought the same except not soft treads,
And mine are bias tires.
What size wheels are you running and backspace??
I had ordered race lines 17x9.5's with 4.5 backspace. I was just notified they no longer have that backspace..

Getting super close on the plumbing! Its ready right now for oil, coolant, and PS fluid. Last bastard brake fitting came in so I can wrap the brakes up. Fronts are done, just gotta run a line from the MC to the cutting brake.



Upgraded to an electronic purge valve on the propane atomizer that will be switched with the switchpro that I think is a nice upgrade over the bicycle cable.



Changed most of the hoses over to AN hose and fittings. Wanting to swap the main line from the atomizer to the carb over to a -16an line if possible.



Still have to yank the original wiring and get the new painless buggy harness installed before well be ready to try and fire this thing up, but its getting closer and closer every day!

Im like 3 wires away from starting this thing!

Went kinda nerdy on the wiring. Using pretty much all weatherpack connectors throughout the car. Spent some quality time on the electrical panel too
