Welded up the reservoir to the pump the same height as the radiator to avoid overflow issues, the recovery tank is only 28oz. Looks like crap with it that tall.

Welding 1/8 sheet to the thick billet was a little difficult, it soaked up the heat and didn't want to melt until way after the 1/8" started to.

Took the jeep out tonight to pull a Chevy out of a hole. My hood latches let go after I pulled the front end up and it came down pretty hard the hood popped up smacked the windshield frame. Pics tomorrow.

Not as bad as I thought buying a new hood for 150 and using the hinge area from this one to lengthen it again. Just got the rampage locking latches in today figures. A buddy taped caution tape all over the hood very funny he's got like 25 long zip ties on his driveshaft now

4.10 since I wanted street drivability but on the trail I have to shift the instant the pedal hits the floor. Found myself alone a few times when we were blasting some trail had to stop and wait for my friends Chevy, when he caught up he said he was doing 50 the whole time. I don't have a speedometer.

That quarter-turn latch looks just like the one on the baggage door of our BE 58 Beechcraft Baron.
Great build, btw. I'm enjoying following this project!

Hardtop and full doors are recent from an 06. Also installed psc extreme steering gear and new steering shaft. New tuffy overhead console went in today as well as brand new schoenfield headers to make more room for the front driveshaft.

Selling the old fuel system since at or below 1/2 tank it has cavitation and the motor leans out. Already have a new aeromotive stealth tank baffled and pump inside. Ready to go in place of the rear seat also going up for sale. Have the fuel pump electric water pump and new shrouded flexalite all wire to the fast xfi computer for better reliability.
