ok guys, got a few more wires ran tonight and found out that i need to figure fuel and power steering lines out. the factory jeep lines were frozen in the steering box so they twisted off, cant use them. also the chevy lines are bent wrong. so not sure what i am going to do there. and the tbi unit takes o-ringed fittings so i need to buy new factory chevy fuel lines. also got the shifter tower in and cut the tunnel cover so it would fit. i took the factory info center and cut the speedo and tach housings off so i can still use the factory housing. just have to get lights to fit in the housing for turn signals and high beams. just a few more little things done.

I got custom lines made for my power steering and it works great! I'm sure you can get fuel lines made as well

For the fuel lines i think i am going to get "an" fittings then run them into the factory hard lines. For power steering lines I'm gonna buy a factory Jeep return but am still not sure about the pressure side

I bought a custom set fuel lines with the an fittings from pure choice motor sports they are the only ones that I could find that had the an fittings to fit the jeep fuel rail ,but they have Chevy an fittings also so you can get the fittings you need up at the motor for Chevy and the jeep ones for the hard lines also they have nice stainless braided teflon fuel lines

ok i looked at my options for fuel lines an dont feel like spending $50 for 4 fittings to go to an. so i am going to buy fuel line repair kits and just bend the line to where i want it. then run rubber line to the factory hard lines. the 2 lines are $20 and i have plenty of rubber line laying around the garage.

these are the 2 lines i will be using. im trying to think what else i need to order at this time from summit.
what are u guys thoughts on rad hoses. should i get the flex stainless ones or try to find rubber hoses that are right?

ok got the fuel lines ordered from summit, will either have them tomorrow or tuesday. once the fuel lines are in i can put the wiring harness on. i am going to buy a factory jeep return line for the power steering, but still in the air about the pressure size. i went to a line shop and they said that i would have to buy a new jeep line so they could cut the one end off and braze the chevy end on. kinda sucks to pay for a new line then pay someone to cut it in half and weld a new end on.

Try NAPA. Most of those places I've seen can do it without having to buy new to cut.

Try a John Deere or CAT dealership. Anyone who makes custom hydraulic lines. They should have fittings for the power steering in stock. I think I paid $38 for both lines to be made.

I LOVE that dash! How did you make the gauges fit like that?

it is the dash made by gauge works. quadratec sells it but i wouldnt buy it from them. i got both off ebay for WAY cheaper than what they sell it for. now that it is installed i noticed my volt gauge is a bit crooked but im not tearing the whole dash back apart to fix it. plus i think the angle of the gauge make it look more crooked than it actually is. i think i payed 55 or 60 dollars for both dash pieces when quadratec sells one for $53.

Almost sure i ran the 4.3 hard lines to the YJ stock rubber lines with hose clamps.
. For the power steering i massaged the lines into making the correct bends to fit the YJ pump

That is what i have lines from a 4.3 but mine came from a 1500 truck not a Jimmy. The line i have is bent the complete opposite way and has a twist in the rubber hose when installed. It is that bad i don't think i can bend it to where i need it
