I was pissed when i realized it lol.

Looks nice
Tidy

What particular type is that silver insulation is that you are using on the floor?

- I've got everything from Al foil (trans hump), windshield reflective screen cut & glued inside door panels (and soon more) and space blanket ...

that stuff you have looks thicker

Its called ez cool insulation. Its probably 3/8 thick . To thick for the door panels, but perfect for everything else if you ask me. The space blanket is a good idea lol.

Ever since Johnson Controls bought Optima their quality has been junk, we buy them by the pallet at work (were an OEM), I cant count the number of their blue tops we had returned for warranty or never pasted our testing. Before JC bought them out we never had a problem.

The blue tops are prone to failure cuz they're a marine model, but because of its higher rated statistics, people try to use them as a super battery and **** them up.
I had heard they were lower quality now. Glad I got mine before the "Canadians" screwed that up too. Idk if it was Canadians. I was just reflecting.

+1 Optimas are junk now that production has been changed to Mexico. The guys at Advance and Autozone said they get tons of them back for warranty. My yellow top died at exactly 1.5 years old. My friend's yellow top died after a year. He has had his second one for about 6 months so far.

'00 XJ not quite there..
my only build thread is on Expedition Portal in the jeep section, thread title Project Brooke. havent updated in awhile cause I havent touched the Jeep lately. should get back on it soon. there is also a website dedicated to building a jeep stroker. think its just jeepstrokers.com or something. I may start a new thread on here again, we'll see, depends how fast the build goes.

Haha I nearly had an anuerysm from concentrating so hard.

And thank for battery suggestions guys. Ive ran an Optima yellowtop in the trunk of my foxbody a few years ago. Liked it but its more than I need for this application. I too had heard of their QC issues now, so that was ruled out anyway.

Ill check around on Diehard or an Interstate. Ive got a couple weeks before my next wheeling trip to get it figured out.

torqued down a bunch of suspension and steering components and adjusted the steering box. Jeep drives a lot better, everything was so loose.
