modified the plastic ammo box I got from Northern Tool a couple years ago (same as the kind I modified to be a center console lol). Its now the new home of my amp. This amp is a bit more powerful than the old one and is not as forgiving on the badly put together sub enclosure and the decade old pioneer attached to it... I turned it down for now while I start thinking about how I'll upgrade the box/sub combo and the wiring to the amp as well.



EDIT:


Kinda how it sits in the Jeep. It's only locked up while I'm out. The lid is open when the amp is running as I'm sure it will get quite warm in a small space on a hot day...

I did a couple of things today , First I had zip tied up all the wires hanging under the dash . Then I had installed some TJ grizzly wheels on it .

IMHO The Smurf looks much better now

Today, I worked on the driver's rear frame rail some more.

Today I welded in more reinforcements, and then cut out the hole for the shackle through bolt. My hole saw was for wood, and all it did was mark a round hole, so I had to chain drill the hole out with a .040 drill bit, and then use a carbide rotary file to clean up the hole. Turned out excellent. I compared my measurements with the passenger side, and I was totally surprised that I am only off about 1/8"


The new frame is a little thinner than stock, but stronger, so I may put an extra piece of metal around the through pipe, but not sure I really need to. The new 2x4 box is 3/16" thick and stock was "maybe" 1/8".. so I know I have more strength than I need.

I doubt having the through tube sticking out a little past the frame rail will matter much.

Thoughts?

I don't think there are enough lights on your rig yet...

hope you don't mind, but I'm going to use this picture to reference your rims in the photoshop thread. I'm thinking of going to aluminum rims to help out my mpg's.

Yeah, I was definitely going to pull the seat mounts, just ran out of time for today.....had to have some drinks with a friend before he went to c-school since I'll transfer to AK before he gets back . Good call on the shifter boot and panels separately though, thanks. It will definitely be worth it in the end.

With QD fittings I'm sure your amp could be removed. Mine is obviously not an amp but a compressor but it needs an intake and exhaust fan like yours needs.

I am officially jealous.


My transmission is in. Wasn't that hard to do by myself. Now to hook everything back up and kick the jack stands out from under it.
I should have it finished and on the ground tomorrow.

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!
Zombies hate fast food.
Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!
