|TXST8tj||haha. yeah. I have most of the pieces to put a system together, just tired of stuff not being done. I'm going to return all of that stuff to offset the cost of the ready-to-go intake.|

He just told me on another forum ;D

|skatafalif||What are your plans for the intake?|
|09-18-2014 11:17 PM|
Thanks! It really has come through some big changes....and many more to come soon.
As a matter of fact, I am about to make a big update to my intake setup. It's time I move on from the temporary setup and wrap that part of the project up. Pics to come.
Sewell is here in Houston and Dallas from what I have seen. They went out of their way to find us what we were looking for. They shipped this one down from Dallas for us.

Your Jeep has come such a long way in the past 4 years.
I thoroughly enjoyed your thread.
I didn't know there were Sewell dealerships in central/East Texas as well.

I was hoping to get out on a trail this weekend, but we were busy buying my wife a new car and working on my buddy's 2015 F-250 (he wants it set up just like mine, with the addition of some other goodies).
my wife's 'new' ride....
The full outfit of Recon lights (mirrors not pictured)....

I'm drooling! Haha
I can't wait to get front defenders on my jeep. But there not exactly cheap.
I can't wait for some action shots of this thing

Happy to share! It's part of the fun.
I love the Baja RS seats. They are extremely comfortable and really 'hug' you while driving. The black cloth fabric has faded to a purple look for some reason, but Corbeau is sending me new covers.
At some point, I would love to do a 5.3L Vortec swap, but for now I just want to see how far I can get with what I have.
My next big move is likely a built d44 front to kinda tie up that loose end in the strength department.
With a V8, 1-tons should come into play as well as much larger tires. At which point a major suspension overhaul would also need to happen.
Making the 4cyl work really sounds good when you are being honest about it.

|Dieselholic||Man this has been one of the most drastic jeep changes I have read in a while. Thanks for sharing. How are you likeing the baja rs's? I have the moabs but a friend wants them and I want a suspension seat. Also any plans to do anything with the 4cly?|
|08-05-2014 09:12 AM|
Parents went to Moab again. Keeping the kids stylin'!
|07-29-2014 02:20 PM|
This is true. More concerned about having the back end beefed up.
It's no worry, I have plenty of other things still to do/install.

|erickpl||I can imagine with moving things will be in disarray for a while. But the back half is solid for your precious back seat cargo.|

Yep, looks great! I had forgotten about the cage change.
Now you just need to drag it to Alabama to wheel! LOL
|07-28-2014 11:17 PM|
|skatafalif||Man that thing is looking good!|
|07-27-2014 11:08 PM|
I finally finished bolting everything back on. Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to drive it any; however, I most certainly will as soon as I get back town.
I am happy the fenders are at least primered, but I seriously cannot wait to get the jeep painted.
|07-25-2014 11:44 AM|
He said that the fabric that comes on our seats has a lower 'color fastness' because of the design of the seat. Why that is, I'm not sure.
He said that one possibility of them fading so quickly is that excessive water will wash the 'color fastness' out faster. I know mine have sat through a rain storm a time or two, but I dunno...
He did offer to send me all vinyl instead of the cloth/vinyl, but I explained that would be a skin death wish here in Texas.
Although it lives it's life in the garage, I am considering ordering some of the "seat saver" covers just in case it sits out outside for an extended amount of time.
|07-25-2014 09:39 AM|
Dougzin, nope. Only thing I've used is a dust rag to get dirt off, then brush it a bit. Then I use some water with just a hint of soap.
Patrick, Did you have to send back your original seat covers? And did they do anything to the new ones they're sending you to help prevent fade/discoloration?

|erickpl||Have you have your Jeep out of the garage enough to see if the Corbeaus are fading at all? Mine are starting to turn a bit purplish.|
|07-24-2014 11:15 AM|
|BusinessRogue||That's going to look amazing. Nice job with Paint. Lol|
|07-24-2014 11:12 AM|
This is a poor 'paint' rendition of what it will look like.
A quick look at how the brackets will sit. These will be trimmed a bit and will be found at all four corners.
These are the DOM tube and poly bushings that go in the link mounts and act as the hinge. The passenger side is bolted, the drivers side gets hitch pins for removal to open carrier.
|07-24-2014 09:22 AM|
|DMBFiredancer||This is an amazing build. I spent two hours going through it! Great job. I am new to all this and I am doing research and will start looking for my first Jeep soon!|

I am actually building my own tire carrier. It's a pretty simple design using link mounts bolted to/through the corner armor (with backing plates), and tube running between the mounts, hinging using poly bushings.
It sits tight against the body in this design, and the tire does not stick out anymore than necessary.

Haven't posted anything in a while.
Backside coming together.
You will notice the holes on the driver's side that compliment the holes on the passenger side. That will be the location of the tire carrier mounting brackets.
