Vibrant motor sports. I got it from summit. It was expensive but I would not be able to make it work without that narrow one. Get high quality 90s mine were thin. The 45s I got were much nicer and way more money

Best I got. Didnít take many pics from KOH drive the jeep in some desert stuff when I found a problem with my brakes. The fronts were loading up till they locked. Had to crack bleeders. Iím guessing something in the stock proportioning valve was sticking. Killed my wheezing plans. I went by wilwood to see if they had one and they didnít. Pointed me to a place that might and they were closed up already. Damn thing gets it with that motor, but Iím under geared even with that hp. Makes my trans not shift well. I think Iím gonna find a 400 turbo to put in it. Gonna link the rear too. It gonna be nuts. Also needs sway bars something fierce lol

Thanks, I get to try and fire it (LM7) up for the first time tomorrow! Then swap the front axle, oil pan, and then I can build the exhaust.

I used a universal from be cool then build brackets and shroud. At this point I wish I would have gotten one from Novak or somewhere that fit a bit better, although I needed room for all the hoses I got running into the grill

Well, I took the jeep to the desert, Spangler hills outside of ridgecrest this weekend. Drove it through the desert with some bikes and rzrs over to jawbone canyon store, bout a 60 mile trip. Jeep did ok, had some heating issues. Drove it back to camp on the highway. this thing will do 80 on the highway with no issues. Drives great. Will need a sway bar in front though. Rear end bucks pretty hard on big whoops, Iím gonna get new shafts for my FOAs and use them in the rear to link it. Drinks a lot of fuel now. Overheating issue should be fixed, found out my fan was turning the wrong way, fuckin rookie mistake. Need to fix my steering so I get my full radius, I got a plan should work. All in all some good seat time.

Nice man!

What kind of heating issues did you have?

I don't think you can just bypass the heater circuit like you did. I think that always makes the LS run hot.

I was under the impression that blocking it made it run hot and bypass was ok...
found my fan was running wrong way and this fan can only be used as a puller due to blade design

Not much to post, seems to be stayin WAY cool now.
Climbed this chunk of concrete. Gonna try and go out tomorrow and try to say dry.

Insert stroke jokes here....

Still if I had 1/2 inch more stroke Iíd have sick steering

Finally got my bumpstops in the front. Ordered limit straps. Once they are in Iím done with the front. Time to start my trailing arms for the rear

I take it you are running less than 1-1 pitman arm to steering arm ratio? Are you getting enough throw with that setup? Your draglink mount hole must be 8Ē out?

Thanks

Itís a fairly long pitman, I had it tied in to the tie rod bolt on top of the high steer arms, I moved it inward and now I can get steering from stop to stop. Problem is my assist cylinder is and 8Ē and my tie rod moves more like 9Ē because of where itís mounted. So my cylinder is actually whatís limiting me. If I want more, Iíll have to get a 10Ē cylinder and build an internal stop for it.

Gotcha, I was looking at doing the same thing mounting on the tie rod bolt. Problem is the pitman would need to be around 7.5Ē cl. Iíll probably just drill and mount further back on the arm like you did.

Little performance report. Went out Sunday, few hours and never got over 195. And the bumpstops; HOLY FUCK! They made such a difference it was amazing. Lightened my spring rate a tad when I put em in. Itís amazing. I never would have thought man. Itís like a triple rate spring and no harsh bottom outs now Iím so stoked. Iím ordering up part tomorrow for the rear trailing arm setup, I already started on the ruffstuff trailing arms.

Went to the hammers last week. Chocolate thunder whipped my ass. Broke a rear axle yoke at the axle and a front stub shaft.

I might have missed it somewhere on the thread, but what fuel pump are you running? Is it in tank?
