have you tried driving it yet with the new prop valve?

are the brake lines off the master cylinder the stock ones we pulled off? then adapters to fit the lines originally off the abs module?

got some stuff for sale from the jeep.

i have 8 rubicon express control arms, 6 adjustable, 2 fixed, PM ME FOR DETAILS!

also, we are going to be selling the front and rear KOR stealth bumpers, PM ME FOR DETAILS!
for this item, as it is so large and heavy, we are trying to avoid shipping... but if you live in california anywhere between around chico area down to san diego, or western nevada, or western arizona, i am more than willing to do meet 1/2 way kind of deal.
i can tell you, buy these from me will save you about 500 dollars of the KOR prices.

also have 2 rear springs, good for about 2-2.5" of lift. PM ME FOR DETAILS!.


again, DO NOT REPLY IN THE THREAD ASKING ABOUT FOR SALE ITEMS!


now, for some tech.

i went to drive the jeep yesterday after bleeding the system after we did all the new lines, i starting driving, noticed a slight difference, but not much...still a bit squishy pedal, so i got down to the bottom of my street, doing about 10 MPH, pushed the pedal to the floor, and a cloud of mist sprayed out in front of the jeep... i stoped, put her in park, looked in the front driver fender well... it was all wet, pushed the brake with my hand, and the braided stainless steel line had frayed, and was leaking... so turned her around, and left her in my driveway, and soo she sits... doing nothing...again.
FML.

While it sucks, it's still so close and only getting closer with this work he was doing over the weekend. It was in the plans anyways, just happened now instead of later at a more leisurely pace haha.

I'm going to be replacing the brake line for him this week, adding a little more length to the exhaust tube and I think his plans are to come up this next weekend to play with it again

mark, i want to see it flex as well, but in its currrent condition, it will do no better than yours, are brake lines still need to be replaced, and new shocks need to be ordered.

well, things have changed obviously, however.... the plans arnt TOO far off now,

the way i see it, it gives us LOTS of time to prep for the 2013 KOH stock class, and one hell of a buget for the next 9 months.

so, some things i am thinking about changing as opposed to what we were going to do before.

408 CID stroker kit, tranny beef up..... and thats about it, every thing else will remain on track for the KOH build.
