Using factory coolant over flow, the ecu in the oe location also the evap cannister relocated up about 2". Still all fit's!!!!!!





Factory Air box, relocated up a few inches using a modified facotry mount.





Factory air box other side, also aux fuse panel closed up and electric fan.



More fuse panel and batt area.

Electric fan(take a part ford 2 speed)



Open fuse panel, relays for fan and temp control, plus fuses for cb and aux lights.



skid plate pics. Not great but...















Thats it for now! It's up to date. I have been driving the crap out of it and just saving up for the next wheeling trip. She does really well with the 4cyl, and 4:10 gears. I am actually surprised how well. It will be perfect for a 5.3/6.0 v8 swap someday. All of the fab work has been done by me in my garage. I have had some help muscleing some stuff from a good friend but other than that it's been an adventure so far.

I know that tons of yj's have been done about a million different ways but this is my take on it so far. Any questions just ask!

Awesome build! Definitely jealous of your workshop. All the custom parts look great.

Thanks! Scrimped and saved for the shop. I did most of it myself. I horse traded for the concrete work.

I like making things the way i want them. Sometimes i regret it mid project due to the amount of time it takes but in the end it's worth it.

Incredible fabrication work!

Where did you get the box you are using to hold the relays and fuse block under the hood?

I found it. LOL! It was in a garbage can down the street. It was right in top. I saw it while driving. I was looking for something sutable and test fitted a few things that i hated. Lucky day i guess.

Thanks! I like making my own stuff.

Really like the step bars. If I borrow your design, would you change anything, or are you happy with them as is? Thanks!

Thanks! I have not had any issues with them. I had them off a few months ago and it was a good report. No rust or weirdness. Before. I put them on I bed lined the body under them. I also used black silicone around the bolt holes.

Just fyi. Post some pics when you get yours done!

Well, it's been a while. All is well with the jeep. I found a smoking deal on a winch. XRC8 smittybuilt. It was $125 Used. The guy said it would only go one direction and thought it was the realy. Turned out one of the wires was in the wrong spot. So i got it working.



I built a winch plate and added it to the bumer that i had built previously. I also did not like the stock relay box and wanted a way to make power not always be applied to the winch. I built my own box for the realy and a 500cont/1000amp max switch. I also placed it down to the side. I like the low profile of it too. I also recessed the winch fairlead as far back on the front as i could to keep it as much out of harms way as possible. Fianlly i upgraded all of the winch wires to 4ga. It is a bit more stout. Only have a couple of pics right now. I need to oil and spool the line a few more times to get it trained better and need to get stuck to test it properly.

Nice build.

For exhaust clearing, look at the 2.5l exhaust for a TJ. It wraps in front of the oil pan rather than under the trans.

Thanks! I might look into that. Honestly I was not too worried about it. It's gonna change with a motor swap someday. I also make my own exhaust 90% of the time. I have built and installed about 100 exhausts for other people. My own stuff is always the least important. Lol

Latest project code named: Project over kill rear seat install, or Project turret mount m60. Not sure yet. lol!

Anyway the idea thinking ahead to a "real" roll cage and tieing the front seats into it made me think of this. How would i tie the rear seat for my son to the cage too? well rear it does not have to be tied to the cage as long as it's tied into the fram it would be virtually the same.

I picked up another cavalier seat from the take a part. I just wanted one good seat in the back with neck and head support. The factory rear bench seat totally blows for anyone having to set in it anyway. Also i wanted more storage for gear and junk when on the trails.

This is what ensued.... lol









The red tote fits in good but eventually i will have a tool box mounted there. Not sure if i am gonna make that or buy it yet. Also I am 6'2" and i can fit back there now pretty darn good. I could put in some hours in that seat for sure if i had too...
