Sweet build, I bet those headders will make this beast sound sick.

Hey Greg,

Nice to see your working on your Jeep. I thought you would have had it running by now. Could have fooled me : ) J/K. When do you plan on having everything finished? Right now we have some new products to sell and hopefully soon we can get them listed up on here with our new website. Hope everything is well.

I can't wait to see how this turns out with such a low stance. Great work.

Project has been abandoned in favor of rediculous road trips and fixing Toyota shop-mates for the time being. Work should be resuming very soon.

Its been a while since I've updated this - been busy the last few months.

The front shock mounts got rethought. They are a work in progress. They'll get plated & dimple died.




I finally got the radiator shroud and fans done. The shroud is aluminum, the sheet metal guys at work helped me out on this one... Its 3/4" deep and reinforced with some aluminum angle inside.



Tight squeeze. It should clear everything.




I threw the coolers up in front to see what I'm dealing with. They just take up too much space, so I'm considering moving the tranny cooler to behind the passenger with its own dedicated fan. Hopefully its not too loud.

I have a pile of bling parts and no progress to speak of. I have been very busy the last few months. Too many of my friends are getting married!! I hope to get some momentum on this build starting this weekend.

I estimate it will be in the 4000lb to 4500lb range. I'd like to think it will be closer to 4k but only time will tell. This RIG will be very stable.

FYI a Harbor Freight 20-ton shop press is 23.5" wide between the H frame. A Northern Tool press brake is 24" wide.

Anyway - the lower radiator mounts are done. The new press brake came in handy. I goofed around with the driver side header a little... its coming.

Also, I picked up a new intake. This unit is a mass air flow sensor built into an air filter. It all mounts directly to the throttle body. I had 5.25 inches of clearance. This assembly is 5" deep. Running this filter setup requires a smaller idler puller below the filter for it to clear.







Everything fits like a glove. The steering cooler and trans cooler will go in font of the radiator. No coolers & fans behind the seats for me!!

The goal is to fit all accessories under the hood. Its getting tight.

The accumulator fits nicely between the radiator and motor





No two piece front driveline for me It somehow fits. The 1350 joint at the Tcase might not have enough travel. I'm considering a toyota joint for clearance purposes. A 1410 may not fit under the floor.



...cutoff wheel arts & crafts. A band saw would be nice. Anyone want to give me one?



These will be front upper shock mounts one day.

What size of Ron Davis radiator did you use? I am about to get one now and was wondering what size would cool best?

Well the bigger the better. ...but mine is a 26x16 dual pass.

I would call Ron Davis and have them help you select one. They have some selection software that calculates the size of radiator you need based on power, type of driving, etc. Compare that to what you have space for and presto -- your radiator is selected. I'm on the edge of what is adequate for a 500 hp setup - supposedly.

Its a mass air flow sensor & filter combo. You can get the filters in different depths. Its a little pricey but a very clean alternative to having a gnarly 90 degree elbow and intake tube running everywhere.

FYI the idler pulley must be swapped out for a smaller one for the filter to fit. They sell those too - along with all kinds of other stuff I can't afford.

We had been putting off the driver side header for a few months now... the tubes are all welded up, "just" needs assembly. The outlet of the header is very close to the exhaust ports. It was a huge challenge to get it to work.

TRD is doing work on the header here laying down some beads.


Now ready for the collector to get welded on.


...and installed


The exhaust will BARELY fit through the little space between the upper link, driveshaft, frame, body, oil pan, and bellhousing. 8O A short flex coupling will be attached directly to the header so the rest of the exhaust can be rigid mount to the frame.

My new press brake is coming in handy. One of those things where you wonder how you ever lived without it.


The re-beginning of a rear truss.


Here are the lower radiator mounts. Just two little trays.


At full bump the steering ram is very close to the radiator. --> you see the general theme here...

For that sweet air filter I had to change the idler pulley out. Check out my one bling pulley


I threw the Stak shifters in. I think the setup is kinda cheesey but it will do for now. Maybe cable shifters one day...


Next the rear truss will get finished, engine cage finished, and accessories mounted. The list is still long, but we're checking things off.

Some progress to report:

The engine cage saga continues...


Rear truss. Fawk all you guys with CNC tables This was done the old fashoined way.


Front.



The back is a single piece, it will get bent over the tops of the upper link mounts - should be super clean. Its the mothership
