Nice build. Really clean and I love the colors.

I run an 8.8 with 36's and so far it hasn't broke. I'm not nice to it either.

I've been looking for an on board air system and after doing some research on air systems, I decided to go for the 12 volt Puma for $230.



Was hoping to just have this stay assembled as one unit but with running Metalcloak fenders, my underhood wheel well area was significantly less tha stock fenders. I ended up seperating the compressor from tank to make it all fit under the hood.

Since my YJ did not have factory Air Conditioning, I mounted the 12 volt compressor onto the Jeep factory AC bracket after fabbing up a quick simple flat plate to support the Puma air compressor.
I then cut the lower mounting legs off the air tank assembly (tank, drain valve, tank pressure gauge, pressure switch and regulator) and mounted it on its side onto the passenger side fenderwell.
As of this writting I still need to make a flexable line to go from the compressor (that will now be moving with the engine torque) to the tank. I also need to wire it up to the battery as well. I'm installing a MAXI fuse rated at 40 amps as well. (prior to taking it apart I ran compresor with an amp clamp, was only spiking at about 34 amps draw).
I'll then make a small manifold to give me extra air ports for air lockers, air horns, air tools...ect

Finished up my over windshield light bar last night.

(5) 5x7 KC Long Range 100W lights.








A view from inside


I still have to wire them up. Designing a switch box right now that will hopefully be done in a week or so.
Best part is I still fit in the garage!!!! :2thumbsup:

Thats a sweet YJ for sure. Mine is the same color rio as well. Not as clean as yours though by any stretch.

I am curious as to why you bought the metal cloaks and didn't just make your own fenders? You seem to be able to fab really well.

I am looking towards 35's soon as I too and getting my 8.8 ready but with my 2.5" lift and shackles on mine i know I can't clear 35's the way it sets. I'm running 32 x 11.5's right now with no rubbing at full flex at all.

Thanks! I had been given a substantial gift certificate and always liked them. They ended up not being to much out of pocket for me. That's the only reason. With Both front and rear 6" fenders + shipping it was around $1400 delivered!

Will definetly fab up a set next time!!

That makes sense especially considering the time it takes to fab stuff up. Again, great YJ for sure!

It seem to be we get together at least 2 Saturdays a month. I think where we get together is technically in Rock Tavern. Right near Stewart airport. Go to the Hudson valley thread in re new your sub-forum that's where the planning takes place. We all meet up at MikDs place.
