    Coilover reservoirs finally properly mpunted. Abs system ripped out of the jeep, master cylinder swapped to a ram 2500. Only needed to modify the pushrod on my booster to make it work! Used a half inch longer bolt and filed it round. Works great. Still awaiting the package from Wilwood

    There's a new guy up in FOCO who does custom fab, and is starting to build parts specifically for ZJs : )

    so far I got his rear quarter panel armor steering brace likely to follow.

    i also picked up some new beadlocks, pretty excited about that


    starting by stripping most if not all stickers


    color matching the armor


    one side down


    the most jacked up side. the armor actually popped some of the mangled sheetmetal back, i need to figure out gas tank and fender still and it will look a lot better..

    Sweet. Did the fenders use rivets or nutserts? Plans for front fenders?

    neither, Cliff. they required drilling and using bolts nuts and lock washers. everything went fairly smooth, except for 2 bolts where i just can't get my hands into. I'll be hiring a friend of mine with slightly girlier hands than mine to see if he can get them in haha

    Well, a few awesome things got done on the jeep. The monster v8 had a new top end, and K&N intake good for 10,000 horsepower.

    Lol

    The rear suspension was cut off, I ordered custom Clayton brackets, and had my good friend do some beastly links for the new and improved triangulated rear end!

    Even the upper links are now 2", 250 wall DOM with the upgraded ballistic joints, courtesy of CrawlerTech!

    I have also ripped off my rear tire carrier. Rockhard4x4 is awesome enough, (they follow my build and adventures on IG) they paid to have the broken one shipped back to them, and are designing a stronger prototype just for me.i expect it to arrive in less than two weeks!!

    yeah, i got a phone call from the actual owner of the company who said this has never ever happened to anyone.. i told him not everyone jumps their jeep at monster jam, or has a tire bigger than the recommended biggest tire size.. none of this mattered, i am getting a new prototype shipped to my house


    because of that, i will be buying a cage from them as well

    well.. as soon as the xmas stuff is all over with, the jeep goes under the knife one more time. Trashing rear axle, trashing front axle. redoing reear coilover mounts, having front coilover mounts done along with frame stiffeners, all new axles and 43 inch tires..

    should be fun!

    That's a bit of a project. What size tires are you running now?

    Did I see your jeep in a BDS Suspension catalog?

    Pictures of new axles coming up. I let a shop get all artsy with my new truss instead of getting a store bought one. Results are amazing so far!!
