The Jeep Gods smiled upon me today as I swapped my broken/rotted windshield and frame and ALL the bolts just came right out and I even put the wiper motor back on correctly.

The new windshield frame has surface rust but no rot. Just needs to be cleaned up a bit.

Now my jeep is two toned lol.

OK, got her all straightened out today. Just figured I would post up a response here to help you strahten yours. Instead of taking the bumper off and using a hammer like I initally was going to do, I took a piece of 2x2 steel tubing, and put it in my hitch reciever, then put about 10 foot of steel tubing in that 2x2 and pushed down. Bent the bumper right back into place like it never moved with minimal force. Of course, then it was time for some reinforcements to be installed as well as new pull points on the bumper.. Should not go anywhere now...

Sweet thanks man. Nothing like using the principles of physics to your advantage!!! Where did you weld supports at? On the inside of the channel?

Ahhh! Did you cut it down in the middle then??
I know what you mean - I thought the same. I kept going back and forth on if I want to get a rack or not but finally decided not to... But seeing yours - I like it! Haha!

So after trimming my factory fenders recently, I've been contemplating the turn signals... I left enough room to put the factory YJ style on it, but didn't want to buy any and then not like it lol. So I bought some small LED lights but they were about 1/4" too small to work with the factory hole and I didn't want to patch something in there. So I put power to the LEDs just to see how bright they were and I loved them, so I was looking in my inner fender well and saw a few matching factory holes on each side. I used a unibit/step drill bit and opened up 1 on each side and popped them in and wired them up. They can easily be seen over the tire and not on the edge of the fender to get busted against rocks/trees Remember, I'm not trying to make this rig a beauty queen, just a durable trail rig (that's mostly street legal for the rare trips in to town)


The bumper was just sitting on there (not mounted) so I could drill the holes in the middle for the winch plate to sit flush..

Well, I added an additional bracket to the center of the bumper and welded it to the frame cap and to the bumper giving another mounting point. I also welded top to botom on my mounting brackets and a couple beads across the top to hold it down. The problem was not the rear cap bending as much as stressing and bulging out the bolt holes, so this should fix the problem up nicely. If I ever have that same problem, I am just going to replace that frame cap with a piece of channel.

Actually some pro lites run a 4 banger instead of a V8. Now while most of the time the 4's are all jacked up and the 8 is out of a crate. They make similar amounts of power and the 4 bangers have a weight advantage.

I did the same thing to mine. The frame was too rusted out to keep. Now the jeep is black and blue. Lol

I just got the vacuum harness and place every hose to its corresponding outlets, when I placed the tcase on 4H and started rear-ending I heard a knocking sound so I stopped my question is if my tcase handle is placed on the right length or what could be wrong?

Sorry for the pic. I tried fixing but no success

Just completed my fuel tank conversion from 15 to 20. Success! Pain in the butt pulling that tube out though...but with a little work it managed to come free....now I need to think of something else to do...does anyone have any good parts list to make a cold air intake for a 2.5L?

I haven't done any of it myself - but in looking into converting to EFI I investigated some DIY cold air intakes and I've seen anything from using a piece of 3" exhaust pipe and bending/cutting it to shape to dryer vent hose to PCV pipe - with a K&N filter on the end... All pretty cheap (other than the filter - but you want a real good filter)- the exhaust pipe might not be if you don't have the right access to equipment.. I've also read that 4.0L intake tubing can work - and of course, you could always just buy a cold air intake - but I'm guessing you want to do it yourself.

I've also read people just ending up making a snorkel but if you're wanting a specifically cold air intake - the above DIY methods seem decently popular.

I am installing a snorkel Sunday and have been trying to think of a way to shorten the stock air setup under the hood to keep the air cooler. Haven't come up with anything great yet, so I am just going to route it through the stock box for now.

Here's the pics. I think the spare might need to come down a little bit. Why do you guys think?
