Huskies make great friends. Very smart and very independent.

Mine's actually an Alaskan Malamute, although the breeds do look very similar. They're the larger, less crazy sled dogs.

I'm liking the build a lot. You also inadvertently solved one of my driveline woes.

Looking forward to the 'battery tray' install.

Thanks. How did I help with that?

Since I don't have a garage I'll be doing the prep, paint, fender cutting and install at a buddy's house over the course of a few visits (plus he has all of my power tools). Hoping to have it done by Super Bowl weekend.

Thanks! They really are great dogs...very independent, so it's nice to not have them running around at your heels begging for attention all of the time.

Got the Dirtbound e-fans installed yesterday. All in all, a very easy project despite the issue with the radiator. It looks like a lot of people hacked their header panel to make the shroud fit over the top of it, but I put it between the radiator and the header. It made for a snug fit when tightening the header back down, but I didn't feel like cutting anything up. Apparently Dirtbound makes a better fitting shroud now that also has vanes to separate the fans, giving them a lower pressure and making them slightly more efficient. Not that they are inefficient at all...the first two come on right at 185 and the third kicks on at 210, dropping the temp to right around 200. Very pleased with these.

The nice German-quality temp sensor plumbed into the heater line. Two lines go to a relay for the 185 fans, the other goes right to the battery. I just wanted to get it all done as it was getting dark, so I'll go back and rewire it to an ACC. Kind of weird hearing all of that fan noise after you shut the engine off.



Plenty of room now with the heavy clutch fan and bulky electric fan gone.



And some other things to do...

My used TW rear driveshaft has a flange-style centering ball and I noticed yours has a yoke-style. It made me realize that I could swap in a yoke-type, so I can buy a pair of those and use a standard SYE instead of the RE hack & tap. More detail on the last page of my build.

Looks like you've got some fun plans for the near future, too.

Can't wait to see how this is going to look on your Jeep! How long after you ordered the tanker bumper did it arrive? I've heard that its a pretty long wait.

I can't wait, either. I think it's really going to tie everything together aesthetically. Hoping to have my tax return back soon so that I can throw on a spare and hi-lift, too.

It was a bit of a wait, but AJ was redesigning the entire carrier plus the hinge/bearing assembly and then he had to wait a little bit for some of the parts to come in (inventory/supply). Took a little over 3 months from his jig to my doorstep I guess, but I told him I wasn't in any hurry for it.

Weighs around 120-130 lbs...

Love following this build. I'm sure you've said it and I've missed it, approx how much lift are you running with your current set up?

It's a little tough to get an exact measurement now that I no longer have the original flare line to measure to from the hubs (unless someone can give me a different reference point) but I estimate right around 3.75" - 4" currently. I'm aiming for 5" with the add-a-leafs and ACOS adjustment so that my 33's can clear the new flares under full flex. Right now they rub just enough to be annoying.

Since it was nice out today, I decided to hurry and throw in my OME D22XL add-a-leafs. Got a bit of a late start though, so I wasn't able to adjust the front before it started to get dark. Even with the ACOS, there's too many other things to adjust...will tackle that tomorrow. Hoping to get the bumper and tire carrier done this weekend.

Pretty easy to drop these in. Just remove the shock at the axle mount, take off the u-bolts and spring clamps, remove the centering pin and slide in the leaf. Sandwich back together with the jack and tighten everything back up. Took about 90 minutes total and I was taking my time. Gained about 1" exactly, but I didn't drive around afterward to let everything settle in.


Just enough clearance at the clamps to fit an extra leaf in.

Looking good Phillip.

I will be in T Town again soon for a visit with Mom. Would be great to meet up this time! Will give you a heads up and maybe we can make it work?

LOVE the fans.

I used the OME AAL in my OME pack and it netted 1" and it has stayed that way for over 6 months.
