Finished the bed in the back of the ZJ. Came out to 7' 1.3" (216.7cm). Now I'm ready to crash in the Arctic Tundra wherever I want!

Checkout all the images in my build threat

Thanks man.

From the side rear doors I can access everything that's underneath the middle compartment. The sides flip up so it's no problem at all. I can also detach the middle section that has handles and move it on top of the rear section. That's also how it collapses into the rear compartment if the rear seats should be necessary.

In the future I'll install drawers in the rear section. Maybe with a small stove or something. For now I'm just gonna install some lighting and a way to open the lift gate from inside.

Here's the Google Sketchup drawing:

Its not the filter, its the housing the filter screws onto. You need to drain the oil, remove the filter, then using a certain size torx or allen socket, remove the bolt that holds the filter housing to the block. Change all the o-rings. Parts stores sell a kit for that that has all the o-rings needed.

I cannot remember what the socket size is to remove the center bolt. It is also a little hard to get to because the head of the bolt is counter sunk into the housing and there is very little space between the housing and the passenger side frame rail.

I have changed several before. I changed my rear main seal three times because of this leak not knowing exactly where the oil was coming from.

Finally got back in country to see what a year's worth of "web wheeling" got me. Over the course of deployment I got for the heep: Thorley headers and Y-pipe, K&N FIPK w/ Amsoil filter/Prefilter, Mopar Performance PCM, front and rear adjustable track bars for 4"+ of lift, LockRight locker for D35 (till I complete 44a swap), 4 Hella 500's, Novak shifter linkage, 2 gallons of bedliner & chassis coating, spare U-joint axles, and I have a lead on a running 360 for $250.

Good thing I have till late '12 to finish the engine build, and have pieced together the suspension.
