Cool. Any reason you went with BDO.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

Nothing in particular, I really liked the design and at $230 for 1/4" aluminum I couldn't complain

Awesome build! I missed your first thread. Can you post more info on the 5.3 swap?? Why did you mount the engine 3 inches further forward? Was it a clearance issue with the firewall? What did you do for the flywheel, clutch kit, pilot bushing? Where is the AC compressor? Electrical?

Thanks! A lot of those questions can be answered on the first page. The engine is not mounted 3 inches farther forward, the transmission and transfercase are about 3" farther forward than stock because of the motor. Did all the wiring myself using ls1 tech website and im not running an ac compressor.

Made it out to rocks and valleys offroad park this weekend


Had a good time until i cracked my oil pan on a log


Luckily there was a junkyard not to far away that I could pull off an oil pan. Got it all put back together and continued to wheel!

Not a clue haha. Most of it was left over jeep harness. There's at least that much left under the hood to weed through yet too

Im really liking the sliders as well. Thinking about just leaving them bare aluminum. And as far as the wiring goes I'm not a fan at all, I get real nervous I'm going to cut something I shouldn't so after almost every wire I cut I start it up and make sure it still runs...not a whole lot of fun haha
