That my friend is where the challenge lies, I have a 5.2 and am working on either the york setup or i might try to make space for a High output 12v under the hood....I am still looking for ideas, but it does hold air which is nice.

Doesnt that york setup take your air compressor out?? You have a site for that york setup. Im in the same boat as you are with not being able to setup a shop anywhere so OBA is looking better and better.

What if you just found a small electric style and set it in your box in the back (if you have room) and just make run some wire/inverter (depending on motor type) back to it?

Ya I have looked at the (Vivair)? 12v but I think there may be a place on the front drivers side for a york....it will take some ingenuity but i wanna try to get it. Also I really don't want to lose my AC so i am still exploring options

I was thinking of doing the fire extinguisher swap X2 or a propane swap with a viair to start. With the viair i was planning on doing so i can run of the battery and then also have a connection for an outlet when at home.

Got the new roofrack done

Went from this


to this that I designed a couple of months ago....Kinda KORish




Welded and some bondo to fill in some divots and dents. smooth it down and prep for paint.



Paint & wiring




Built an Air dam, because when I first test drove...the wind whistled really loud through the grating....I think it will work

I hurried when I was making it at home So I put it together in like 4 hours... The whole measure twice thing didn't happen, heck some spots didn't even get measured once....

If I do it again... I will definitely take much more time building it....though I am still very pleased with it.... go ahead...make some comments.

Close up


On the jeep and some poser/pretty pictures.

The new rack looks good, I think that the fairing could look better if it were curved to match the roof. The grill guard also looks good, especially for being home made. I think where it wraps around the side by the headlights would match the vehicle better if it were squared off more. Its a boxy vehicle, but the guard is very round there.
