Awesome build. If you don't mind me asking what size dies are you using for the tube bender.

On the cage, did you follow a template or just completely wing it?

If you're serious about it we can chat. Im going to be doing one, if not two more this fall for someone else local. As for the bacon and beer, its tempting...thought I have a kegerator in the garage stocked. The bacon might be the winner.

PM me if you want to discuss a possible cage...

I winged it. 140 feet of straight tube and a general idea of what I wanted.

I guess I should do an update. Not a lot has been done thats picture-worthy, the biggest thing is that I just ordered my harness, so in 2-3 weeks Ill have it back and ready to plug in to fire up the motor for the first time.

Ive done a bunch of little stuff to get things prepped for getting my harness. A lot of clean-up and finish work on the front fenders, mounting the remote oil filter, re-doing the fuel lines with aluminum hardline.

Here's the remote oil filter mount...




I also made my rear fenders:




Made the bracket for the NVLD evap canister:


And...added some MSD coilpacks

Progress has been slow. I tore everything back down on the front and did final welding, sanding/scotch brite, and paint. Loaded everything back in while I wait for the engine harness from Hotwireauto, its currently being built.

Looks like a ton of fun and great Work. I see you have something going on there but I will throw in that I have Volant Cold Air Intake and stage 2 Jet chip just sitting in the rafters collecting dust I took them out of my 04 HEMI when I sold my truck. Let me know if you have a need for either of them.

Thanks for the offer, but a dodge intake wont fit and I've got a DiabloSport tuner going in.

Thought I should update since the build is picking back up again.

I was able to order up the Atlas 2, which I was told from Advance Adapters would take 8 weeks to build. Well, 1 week later I had it!!

Atlas ll, 4.3:1, heavy duty 32 spline front, cable shifters:







Installation was pretty easy with my tranny jack. Biggest pain was actually the cable shifters and getting them crammed in there. Long cable, not a lot of space.....

Shifters in and working great:


This past weeked I got the heated seat elements installed in my Mastercraft seats, put the switches on the center console just in front of the cutting brakes, and then proceeded to wipe 1/4" of dust off everything. The interior is pretty much done. Only a couple things left; ipod stereo, switch for windshield mounted light bar, and horn switch for some hella horns.

Put a single row 10" flood CSI light bar on the bumper, got the windshield brackets mocked up and ready for the 50" single row spot CSI light bar;





Also started getting the hood louvers from PSC installed;

50" single row LED bar up on the windshield...



Also got my Yukon Superjoints. These are HUGE!



Pinion flanges from High Angle Driveline came in:



And, I worked on getting the transmission mount/crossmember completed. The drivetrain is no-longer supported by a tie-down strap or transmission jack!!

Ok Mr. Kjdavis , I'm gonna have to hijack your build thread for a quick moment My wife is in the Philippines on vacation, laying on the beach having cocktails with little umbrellas in them while I work 77 to 80 hours a week running a car lot for a dear friend of mine that I consider a brother. He's an old car guy legend and I want him to retire. Funny thing is wife is gone out of the country and i'm on wranglerforum writing this when most would be buying hookers and blow. I have a nice life and my wife is the best, that's why I married her, she's a straight A student and an excellent nurse. I know a ton of people, IslandTJ who posted above is one of my favorite people to go wheeling with, he's fun to just have a beer and b.s with too.

A good friend of mine flew in from Kuwait and was waiting at the lot this morning, I was so happy to see him. he sells Toyota's there and wears a turbine. He's up in the sales tower behind the mirrored glass with me and looks out the window,he says...good greif jamus...looks like your jeep is all caged up, I say you have no f"ing clue my friend, come look at this. The guy that built this has a jeep like mine that is flat out radical and makes mine look like junk, hemi, coil overs, cage like this and more, he also has a build thread on Pirate4x4 in the jeep hardcore section and it fit's in perfect there, Pirate is the largest offroad website in the world if you didn't know.


It's the same thing every time someone sees the cage in my beater Jeep.

I don't have time to build a cage, I didn't like any of the weld in kits even if I had the time and my problem is I have no time. Kjdavis built my cage in his garage over a month on his days off and weekends, you have to see it. His attention to detail is amazing in every way, i'm still in awe every day when I drive my Jeep and look at the work he did.

Kurt, You're not the best by any means, I think you're one of the greatest. Keep up the good work and thanks again.

If you're in the pacific NW and in my shoes, broke because your wife took a vacation but you need a cage done. Hit this guy up. I would do it again and will.

Wow...thanks James! Glad you still like the cage, I still need to get you that can of touch-up! I have it sitting on my desk, I just need to swing by and drop it off. Thanks for the kind words, hopefully you'll never actually have to use the cage! Let me know when you want to build some tube fenders for that thing.

No problem Kurt, You did a top notch job! No rush on the touch up paint, I haven't had the top off this year due to the rain.

Been thinking MCE fenders but if I decide on metal tube I'll let you know, I changed my body lift and am about to tie the cage to the frame. It would be great if you could post a pic of your B pillar frame tie in, it would probably help many others that find this thread as well.


Looks like your build is not to far away from a shake down run, hurry up!

Its getting closer, still a ways off. But, every little bit is a step in the right direction!

You didnt find a Matco sledge hammer in your Jeep by chance did you?
