Thanks!

Just installed the new painted header panel. I will have to retake the glamor shot now with the installed fender flares, painted header panel, and rear bumper.

Built a bus bar from a door shim since the only post was crowded.(Cover not shown.)


Cleaned up all the other wiring and fix some wire loom issues. An unfortunate meeting of many accessory wiring harnesses.


The new headlight wiring harness, weatherproof relays, and connections. It is entirely built into the stock harness and is conservatively rated to handle 100 watts per bulb.


Power routing over top of the fans.


Low Beams - 55 watt - Impressively bright.


High Beams - 60 watt - Everything is visible when driving with these on.

They are standard 55/60 watt H4 bulbs that were included in the Hella ECE 003427811 housing conversion kit.

I plan on doing an update video this week end. I want an outdoor picture, but I am in the middle of installing the supercharger.

The exhaust still needs an intermediate pipe from the header past the transfer case. Now that the header is done I can work on that and finishing all the other little pieces.

Header paint does a great job of hiding hideous welds.


Fiberglass header wrap; only need on the first six inches or so to get the heat away from the intake manifold.

New Belt and Tensioner Setup


Supercharger Hung


Linkages, Fuel Line, and Power Steering Feed Line - It all runs neatly between the intake manifold and supercharger.


Getting creative with the vacuum ports and right angle brass fittings.


A very nice 68mm throttle body from Painless Performance.

After all this I don't think I could bring myself to wheel this thing, even if it does have Bushwackers on it.

Can't wait to hear that motor.

I certainly do not use it for off road adventures! I load wood and heavy stuff up to move around.

I love this build! I was so close to turning my clunker into a '98 MJ and your build makes me somewhat regret not doing it. Cant wait to see the blown stroker on the road!

The majority of the exhaust is finished. Exhaust work is entirely new to me and since it requires welding I made a bunch of snot on some of the connections. I need to finish the intermediate pipe and the tail pipe. The bends over the axle are done, but I ran out of pipe. I used Euro-Joint style connectors at the header, before the catalytic converter, and after the muffler. There is enough play in the joints to fine tune the position to keep it from rattling in the small space between the crossmember and floor pan.

6" Round Magnaflow Muffler and Magaflow universal 3" catalytic converter


Back Side of the Intermediate Pipe


Unfinished Intermediate Pipe and a Bit of Header - The header does come down a bit further than stock, but is necessary to keep the larger diameter from hitting the transmission and cooler lines.

I have barely an idea what I am doing with tuning in AEM, but I setup all the break points to at least match the engine!

Any insight on how to clean all the baby batter off of an iphone?



Damn dude, just damn. I am absolutely speechless on how genuinely badass this thing is from top to bottom.
