I too have a TJ/4bt, there is a cut/paste link in my jeep profile to my build thread.
First things first though, 97'wrangler does CT or where you live have emission testing gas or diesel. If your TJ is going to be street legal this may pose an insurmountable obstacle, like is the case in MA, CA, and some other states where a non stock engine or older engine will not get emission certified.

Hi,
I think I made a mastake and made that last post in the wrong thread. Unfortunately I can't delete it.
Sorry for the distraction.

yea i found it, what about cooling because i see that you obviously cant use the stock radiator... and as far as braking i dont think im going to use hydroboost, but def need to beef up the braking some how.

you can use your stock radiator if you want. you only have two options for brakes 1) hydroboost 2) vacuum pump. your diesel engine will not produce vacuum to use your vacuum booster that is on your jeep now. the rest of your brake system is fine to use

I would say if you plan on tires bigger than say 37" then go hydroboost, but you would also be looking into axle upgrades too. Stock radiator will handle the cooling, for me the radiator hose routing sucked and I went with a different radiator.

Right now it has 6" suspension only. I think it is too high and I want to drop it down to a 4" lift and just cut the tub and make tube fenders for tire clearance. I can fit 41's as it is now.
