Man all this talk about e-fans. The e-fan I'd put together had some nice chunks taken out by the water pump pulley on my 4.0. Ultimately, probably a good thing it drew more power than the alternator could generate; it probably would have gotten me into trouble had I kept it.

As far as the whole lug thing goes, I know about all that. I just estimate it's all still in good enough shape that as long as I don't beat on it, it should be fine. The plan for now is, once I get the new tires, have one of the local shops I work with break their tools getting the lug nuts off. And if they break studs, I'll let them pound new ones in. Come on, flat rate, do your worst.

My silver on/off/on switch mounted. The e-fan was within an inch of the water pump, but it worked.
Mine is pretty close, but I still had enough room to squeeze a big M30 nut onto the water pump. I'd say it's about an inch away with the nut on there.

But the ridge wasn't there on my buddy's '95
Hope you don't mind I'm stealing this idea lol...I'll give you props wherever it's needed its deff I good simple way to do pillar lights

I finally installed my new replacement headlights. The originals were 21 years old, and badly yellowed, even after cleaning and polishing them out once. I can't wait to drive it after dark now.

So I finally got around to start fabbing my front shocks in now that deer season is over. I did finish the season strong


the 14" bilsteins wont fit in the stock orientation by any way shape or form, So for the top I used a hole saw to drill out for the shock eye to pass into the engine bay then repurposed my old rear sway bar bushing saddles for the upper mount


Then I cut out the factory axle side mount, trimmed a plate to match the side of the control arm tab, and welded a shock tab to that.


how it mounts...


Then I got the shock mounted in and played a little bit. This thing is gonna be fun!! shouldn't have to worry much about lifting a tire! I started on the drivers side because it was the hardest as far as clearances go (brake master cylinder right above) and I hope to get the passenger side done this week.

That is a lot of tasty venison. I can't say that I'm not jealous. The ZJ is nice too.

Patent pending.

Jk man. Go for it lol. Aside from the minor trimming to the wiper cowl, it's pretty straight forward. If you need any measurements just let me know and I'll do what I can

Had a guy stop me on the way home today and ask me if my ZJ was for sale. Told him for the right price everything is. He has my phone number now. To be continued...

Uni I looked at those welds and was scrolling down the page to reply with a like comment and you beat me to it. Those welds look like they were poured on.
