The rears I did the cut and fold method. They still need some finishing cause the paint chipped and I made a couple small dents. They will be headlined around them though. The fronts I just cut out and then used flapper disc on the angle grinder to refine them. They look really nice if I do say so myself. And yeah I got one but I need to get a zj shaft too cause I dunno if the xj one will be long enough.

I have had these plans for this jeep since before It was even for sale hahaha. Well they have changed a bit and I was originally going to do 6.5" of lift... But still. I ordered it almost 3 weeks ago I am starting to get antsy. Clayton needs to hurry up!

Thanks guys. Always good to see some support. Any investors out there?

So anyways....

Today i started messing around with the interior. I'm relocating the parking brake to in front of the drivers seat and i shortened the lever by about 2 1/2 inches. Will be cutting a hole for it tomorrow and getting it mounted up. To get it to work i will need to lengthen the cable by about a foot.



I relocated the airbag control module down to under the driver seat which i think is where they originally were in cherokees. The bolts and mounting bracket were already there.



I bought a 40mm ammo can at a gun show last weekend and i started mocking up the final location. It will be a lockbox and hopefully i can get my cupholders to still be there and maybe rear cupholders at the expense of the middle seat (who really wants to ride there anyways?) I think the 40 mm can is going to be about 3X the storage of the old console which i need. It is overflowing with ****.

Ammo can looks very cool! I've thought of doing this myself! I'm looking forward to seeing how yours turns out and maybe ill get enough inspiration to do mine.

I was thinking of maybe integrating the can into the existing console. Ha now you've got me thinking.

I couldn't quite "integrate it" but i think it turned out alright. If you did a 7.62 ammo can you would fare better with that. I used a 4omm cause i wanted the most storage space possible.
Here are some pics of the finished inside and the relocated parking brake. I may put the shift boot and the cup holders back in but i haven't decided yet.

Here the brake is all sealed up and finalised. I used Rustoleum rust reformer paint to do a base coat and then outdoor extreme weather sealer to keep all the nasties out. I dunno what i would have done if it didn't work.... Those long bolts will be replaced by the way. It's all i had at the time. I used a piece of aluminum as a backing brace so that the brake lever wouldn't rip out the floor.





Here is the ammo can console all finished. It fit's really great in there and it holds a ton more stuff than the old one did. I used the existing bolts for the ACM and put one self tapping screw up front to keep it from shaking and wobbling.




Also changed my shift nob back. Petey was getting kinda bitey. I still need to do some work on the parking brake cable to get it functioning. My tension adjustor bolt is siezed and i don't want to break it so i'll be picking up one of those fence tensioner things and getting a new piece of wire to complete the line. I got a bracket mounted to the frame to hold the cable but i still need to extend the line. Pics tomorrow when it's done.

I love you. Hahahahaha

I'll snap a picture of the e brake all finished later. It still needs to be adjusted slightly to work properly. It doesn't get in the way of my feet at all except a tiny bit getting out when it is up. But nothing I won't get used to. The only thing I have to do is to get the cover and button on cause the metal is kinda sharp. When I shortened it I cut off the part that holds the button on the end.

This here is the new redirected parking brake line. It is stiull for some reason not working quite right. It is not slipping or anything. the problem i was having before was that the brace i made was flexing under the stress but it isn't any more. how much can i adjust it before it is constantly dragging? that's what i'm afraid of.









Here is the inside of the jeep as requested. I sit with the seat all the way back so as long as i drive the jeep i don't have to worry about the brake working. if a short person drove it i may have an issue cause the engine will not hold the jeep on a steep hill.
