Few more pics. Cut some slots in the tailgate ribs so I could bend it to follow the cage line.

Bring on the Big Daddy

Going to swap out the trusty 304 for this 1977 401 I picked up. Will be sending my Howell fuel injection back for some rework to accomodate the big daddy. If anyone's interested in a 304 with around 30,000 miles let me know. It is built to stock specs with exception of an RV Cam.

Anyone running a howell efi on a 401, curious if should go with a bigger throttle body all together or just upgrade to larger injectors on the 304 throttle body? Any advise or experience?

The 401 internals are currently stock but down the road I am going rebuild for some horsepower and don't want to be swapping throttle body's so I would like something that is flexible enough to accomodate both setups.

Sweeet!
It's about time you updated some pics. It looks better than you described. Really nice lines.

Keep it up! You (unlike myself) are in the home stretch.

whats the CFM rating on your current throttle body? it just meters air, so more probably wouldnt hurt, am i correct? what are the size incriments that howell jumps? man, your gonna cry the first time you wreck a rear quarter panel.

I couldn't have them sitting at too much more of an angle or my spring on the shackle side would hit the frame at full compression. Planning on running a 6.5 inch shackle.
How did this setup work for you, are you happy with your shackle angle?
Looking at doing the same thing on my Commando I'm running RE 1.5" YJ SOA springs and was thinking in the 43" range, my 5.3 will be lighter but I've got more sheetmetal hanging up there and have an 88Lbs winch going up front too.

Love your rig man.
As for the throttle body, I will bet they suggest a larger one (454) as they did when I asked the same question.

Its already boxed up past the upper link mounts but I do intend to box it the rest of the way.

Thanks for the info on the throttle body beyer05.

Those seats are PRP competition High Backs purchased from one of the vendors on the board. Go check out that thread for exact specs and colors.

I haven't run it yet so I realy can't say. I was limited by my clearance under the frame rail but we will see how it works out.

You do very good work and that jeep is sexy. I dont know if you have thought about this already, but the tubing that runs parallel to the body is really taking away from the beautiful body work. I did notice that you put another parallel section of tube in above the tailgate, so I wonder if you have thought about it already. Seeing how it is just tacked at this point, would it still be an option at all, to tuck that tubing down lower with the tub? Just my .02, as I could certainly never do as good of a job as you in the first place.

I like the way you mounted your coils, looks clean! I am wondering about the bar that you mounted them to on the top. Are you going to add any support to it? Is it regular DOM (.120 wall)? I would worry about it bending. I am trying to figure out how I am going to do mine.

Great looking build!

How tall is the rear seat, compared to your kids? I like the angled roll bar look best, but will they have some growing room?

Well it's been awhile and here's the progress I have made.

- Plumbed all my Brakelines. Kiethflux in the vendor section offers a 5 line kit that comes with all mounting brackets and hardware. His kit is top notch and is money well spent. You won't find much better customer service either, great vendor. Here is a link. https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=291865

- ADCO drivelines did a nice job on my rear shaft. 1410's on each end. 3 inch 3/16 wall tubing with a long slip.

- Pulled my 304 to make room for the 401 I have been pulling together.

- Started mocking up fuel cell.

- It took a few trips back and forth to finally figure out the my dana 60 has 10mm 150 pitch banjo bolts on the calipers. Kinda wierd.
