I work the swap meet every year in a booth.... 8 on 6.5" for the trailready's? What backspacing?

This looks like the kind of build when someones asks you what have you done to that thing you say "it would be easier and much less time if you asked me what hasnt been done or changed"

5 on 5.5, 3.5 backspacing.

I'll be using these wheels for a couple weeks in June, and selling them immediately after. However I'm picking them up tuesday, and the vehicle will be on display at the swap meet. The wheels will NOT be 'wheeled' until June.

I work a booth in the main hall, about in the middle of the hall.

Wow. This is quite the build, and I have to say, you've given me some ideas and definitely inspired me to save up and start working on my TJ soon. Good luck on the rest of the build!

Normally, I just sell of my excess junk. However I'm with the Eldorado Dust Devils group, and for the last several years, we've had a rig in for display, and have either raffled off a set of Mastercraft Seats or new Detroit Lockers. We buy a block of booths.

Just about right smack dab in the exact middle of the place.

Dean, from Bent Metal Customs is in the block, as is John, who sells a lot of T18s, T19s, D44 shortened housing, etc. all in like-new, just-rebuilt condition.

These are the tires, wheels I'll be selling at the end of June, beginning of July. Brand new as of yesterday. Anyhow, my original post was to see if these tires had any interest to you, as you expressed interest earlier in the thread for some 42s, and these are 40s. However, these are the "Not for Highway" version of Kevlars, (Stickies) but they do have DOT numbers on them. I currently have 6 tires & 5 matching wheels.

Thanks for posting the pictures...I'll have to think about it, as I was hoping for 42's. But, it I'll toss around the idea of 42's....


Dean widened my Tera60 rear and welded in the 14-bolt spindles for me. I also had him do some work on my old radiator before I did the Hemi swap.

I REALLY need to update this thread with pictures. I've got the steering all worked out, ram and tie rods are done, new PSC pump is installed. I've got the orbital remounted and all but the high pressure pump-to-orbital hose installed. I had to relocate the reservoir from next to the master cylinder, to above the pump....mounted off the coilover hoop.

I also got all of my braided stainless brake line and ran it all from the calipers to the master cylinder. The rear goes from the calipers to the cutting brakes, and then to the master with an adjustable proportioning valve inline.

Battery tray/box reworked and installed, trans temp gauge installed, just need to drill and weld in the bung for the sending unit on the tranny pan. trans shifter cable installed, and the trans shifts through all gears fine.

Ill get pics on Sunday....

I was thinking how far my jeep has came from a 2.5 to a sbc 350 and 700r4 adapted to my np231j built the 700r4 to hold 400hp and equal torque swapping a 8.8 rear in 2.5 inch ome lift and 33's while i save for lockers and 35's.....then I look at this and realize I have soooo much more I need to do to it.

Heres the latest:

Stainless braided lines ran from all calipers to the master cylinder. The rear lines first go to the cutting brakes, then to the master.

Lines ran for the steering. Any reason why mounting the orbital with the hoses facing down would be a bad thing? (air bubbles, etc) Or is it okay to mount it that way?

Also got the tie rods and steering setup with the Artec hi-steer arms.

Sorry its been a while. i havent got much to update, but here's where Im at.

I've been doing a lot of the little things. I notched the fuel cell to clear the upper links on compression;



Finished the skid plate (notched as well) and got the hold down brackets built for the cell. This pic shows just the side pieces...there is a plate that bolts to the side pieces that covers the top of the cell;



I replaced the 97 fuel pump with one from an 05 (97 flows at 49gph, 05 flows at 60). I got an emissions pump/canister from an 05 and ran AN fittings and -6AN stainless braided hose from the cell to the motor and emissions stuff.

I also picked up the Canton racing oil filter relocation stuff so that the front upper links clear the oil filter on compression. Still need to get it mounted;



I also got some perforated plates from Genright and decided to add some vents to my tube fenders to help with heat from the Hemi...



I need to get some tube bent up to finish some things (rock sliders, front support connecting the two coilover hoops, grill hoop, etc) so I ordered a JD2 model 3 bender which will be here Friday.

ast week my JD2 model 3 Bender was delivered and I built a stand for it. I was then able to start making more progress on the Jeep.



I did manage to get some work done this weekend with the bender. Finished up the drivers side rock slider. I liked the look of the PSC ricochet rockers because of the integrated "step"....my wife is short and will need it. The PSC ones come out 5" from the body...Mine are 4.25-4.5". I was going back and forth between the way I build it, vs. having the tube go up at an angle. In the end I decided on this, because Ill have good clearance with 42's, and with the full width axles and tires the 4.5" from the body wont be that big of a deal.

No kidding! Doesnt seem like that long, and I didnt think anyone was still paying attention to the thread.

Its going slow. Im now just trying to do little projects and clean up while I save for the engine harness. I got the radiator in and need to do a few tweaks to where things mount up before I can call the front done.





Also got a Wurton 12" light;

Not a lot new, been pretty busy recently with stuff other than the Jeep. Im getting ready to tie the coilover hoops into the front A-pillar on the cage, sandwiching the firewall with a couple flanges like I did with the front bumper/grill hoop. I have the tube, flanges, clamps, etc...just need the time.

Then Ill be able to mount the ARB compressor, battery, orbital valve (cutting off old mount), and oil filter relocator on the tubes. That way I can unbolt the fenders without having to undo any of that stuff. The fenders would be more or less like skins.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

As for where I learned to do this...just from trial and error. I did work at several different offroad shops in the past as an installer, but learned a lot as I went. Now its just a hobby though I still work in the automotive aftermarket field, just now Im behind a computer.

Finally got around to working more on the Jeep this past weekend after having several thing come up. Winding down now so I can get back on this more hopefully.

First, the LED light bar is F-ing bright.

Second, I worked on tying my coilover hoops back into the cage A-pillar to help prevent some frame sag/flex. Here's what I came up with...drivers side is done.

Used a flange at the firewall and a 6-bolt clamp around the A-pillar:


Kind of hard to see this, but I went back from the coilover hoop and bent down to the frame. Then at that bend I went to the firewall and flange. Orbital and ARB compressor mounts on the tubes. Makes it easy to put the fenders on now.

Did more on the TJ this weekend:

Got the passenger side coilover hoop to A-pillar done with the battery tray on it:





Also found the only place the remote oil filter kit would fit...its tight, but should clear
