Things are progressing nicely. It is amazing how much crap you can remove and still get a good ride and a Jeep that will idle. Looking real GOOD!!!

Well I drove it for the first time today, runs so smooth, no problem coming to a stop sign and the jeep cutting out. Takes off fine, I just can't think why I did not do this from day one. It's the best thing I have done to the jeep todate. I hope to see a improvement in gas mileage also.

Here is what is happening after the Carb and HEI install on my first full tank of gas I got an extra 133 km (83 miles). In a few months it will pay for itself.

Great looking Jeep!

Is there room for you to mount your roof lights under the bar? That way you could fit in the garage.

no they wont fit under the bar. I was thinking of getting the long LED light bar that will fit the full length of the light bar. The only problem is that they don't come cheap.

Are you happy with the quality of the Tuff Stuff bumper you purchased from eBay? It looks really sharp but I do not have any personal experience with that company. Any thoughts you can share would be appreciated.

I have not installed it yet, I feel that for what I will ever use for I think it will stand up. It's not the toughest and I am sure it's not the weakest bumper out there but for the price I feel it's very good

your jeep looks wicked man, do you ever come down south east a couple hours to wheel? I've been wanting to go up to Britannia area. But don't know any people that go out there.

No I have never been down there yet, I have only had the jeep for a while, there are so many places right around here I have not even been to them all yet. Do you know of some places to go where do you live?
