Buy the actual anti-coning ring from DIYBEADLOCKS.COM. They are $60 for a set of 4 rings for 17" wheels.

Finally got the Jeep back to the house and paint finished. Time to start putting it back together.







And here is a before and after paint pic.

I have to give it to PSC. I emailed them and they replied back very fast and gave me a quote. I noticed something wrong with the quote and they fixed it right away. Then I asked them about the Military Discount that they offer and they adjusted the quote to represent the discount.

With all the work they put in to my order I was not expecting it to ship out the same day I ordered it. but the day I ordered it I got an E-mail stating that it would be delivered in 2 days. I am amazed at the speed that they got me my quote and the speed in which they got my parts shipped.

My full hydro kit should be here tomorrow so I should be able to get the front axle finished and finish painted in the next week or two.

I am still waiting on one 45 deg stainless brake line fitting to arrive. should be here within the next few days. that is the last part I need for the entire brake system to be finished.

Still need to finish running all the wiring and install the radiator for the engine and the grill

I was able to get the track bar welded up and installed over the past few weeks; That crappy looking bar in the front is a temp tie rod to keep the tires aligned as I move the Jeep around. lol


also got the side armor custom powdered and mounted
in process

cooling down after baking

mounted on Jeep

backed up pic of mounted side armor


My old winch was a dull grey and I figured that it would not look good with the nice clean black and orange Jeep so I tore the winch down and had it stripped and powdered to match the Jeep.
got it back together and mounted


I also finished mounting my 42's on the beadlocks and got them installed on the Jeep. while at it I put the inner fenders together and cut out the area that I needed to for the shocks to fit.


After finishing the tires and inner fenders I decided it was time to pull the cage and finish welding the underside of the new bars and send it off to powder along with the control arms and track bar.



It's coming together more and more. Every time I get to work on it I feel better about how it is looking. I received the new seats and just need to get the adapters made to mount them on the customized Jeep seat mounting points I created. I will post those pics when I get to install them.

Finaly got the Jeep cage and control arms back from powder coating. they turned out very nice.

Also received my steering kit from PSC and started getting it mounted up.

The last piece of the brake system arrived 5 days earlier than it was estimated can not go wrong with that.

spend the better part of 3 evenings and one Sunday getting this stuff installed
Headlights installed (need to find the plastic retainers for the bezels)



got some new LED turn signals that I got mounted up.


flex test looks like I can get a few more inches up travel and nothing is hitting anything.

Been a while since I was able to get time to work on the Jeep. but since my last post I was able to get the Front locker air line ran. Also got the Orbital mounted to the frame and hooked up to the steering wheel. Then tonight I was able to finish all the wiring and Air line to the Rear of the Jeep. Yes the pics are a little blurry the lighting was not


Steering mounted








Rear wiring and lights working


Lights on


Back up lights working


I got the mounts for the Seats but still need to finish the interior wiring before I get started on mounting the seats.

I am pricing out driveshafts now. And I have found that if I go with a rear 1410 and Front 1350one piece shaft the cost will be about 1200.00 If I go with the 2 piece front the cost will be about 15-1600 I am really thinking about going with the two piece front. I think that the shaft will contact the skid plate at full drop. I am also thinking that if I go with the two piece I can mount the Carrier Bearing to the frame and skid to keep it from vibrating.

I also need to get the Exhaust run from the manifold back. I am thinking of having it exit just in front of the rear tires. Has anyone tried this? Wondering if you get a smell of exhaust in the vehicle with it exiting there?
