how much did this build cost you? How much did some of the upgrades cost individually?

404's and ORI's = Dream Jeep. Sick build man, what's the outside width of the tires? I think I read ~ 91" is that right?

Thanks. Yeah, it's right around that number but once I get everything wrapped up I plan on re-measuring it all.

Would have been sick if you were able to keep that uber low stance.

You can't keep track of that stuff. If you did, then there would be evidence for the wife to see how much this chit really does cost to build. Then your fawkt for future builds.

I think asking how much something/build costs should be outlawed. One, I would hate for my wife to see how much our stuff costs and 2nd, this ride aint no budget build.
I will have to say that the picture of the Boggers on the Mogs when you picked em up is pretty damn cool. Keep up the good work.

This has been quiet for a little while but it's actually almost complete now. Went and got a big new radiator (with transmission cooler) from Howe along with an electric fan (which took three weeks because Howe lost some staff):



The radiator is all mounted up:



Now it's time to pull all the tubework for full welding and paint. The skid plate needs a little more work but otherwise the suspension is pretty much ready to go. The fuel system which was a tight fit with my tall tank and arched rear seat is complete and needs to be routed to the engine. Steering is almost done and the orbital and shaft being the only things that need to get put in. Steering and brake lines need to get in too. Driveshafts (including a crazy two-piece one for the front) have been ordered from Carolina Driveline and should be here soon.

I wish I saw this before we started! Our builds have a lot of similarities and I'm glad you chose to take the extra design time and keep the vehicle low. A lot of 'mog builds are eight feet tall because people can't understand how to keep the engine from getting in the way of the pinion.

Driveshafts came in the other day from Carolina Driveline. I definitely recommend them, their work is excellent and they were very detailed to make sure everything worked out.

Two-piece front shaft w/carrier bearing:





Rear w/CV:





Ended up going with 1310 joints since my bolt pattern on the 'mog pinion conversions is apparently hard to find a good yoke for. Since there isn't much torque on the driveshafts I figure I'll be good for a while, and by time they break I think I can find some 1350 yokes and joints that will work out.

It's close to being where I want it. Had some trouble getting air out of the cooling system and my front driveshaft carrier bearing mount needs some changes but other than that it's pretty good now.

Here's the carnage from me breaking my front shaft while driving around:





Too much angle on the bearing caused issues at speed. While I've been waiting for parts and getting that fixed I completed the rear end with some Poison Spyder corners that I cut to fit some LED Jeep-style tail lights:



I need to mount some front turn signal lights, get the new shaft in, and I'll call it done; then I'll get some good pics of it out of the garage.

Just curious as to where you got those tail lights, I really like that they're LED and close to stock looking.

Builds looking awesome too!

I wish I could tell you where I got them but it was three or four years ago and from a tiny shop that I'm pretty sure is now closed. They retain all the stock functionality and clip right into the existing terminal so I definitely recommend them. Here's the same thing, just from a different manufacturer:

That should take care of you.
