Pretty ingenious idea there with the compressor bracket coming off the tower hoop. I like that.

Who makes that overflow tank? I'm running into space issues myself with no inner fenders and that looks to be the perfect size.

The steering knuckle is a Reid Racing, Chevy style without the molded tie rod arm on the knuckle, the flat top arms are from Artec Industries, the little drag link mount on the right steering arm is from GenRight. I bought the Reid knuckles used from a guy on pirate4x4.com, everything else was new.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

It's a Viair 1 gallon air tank. I just welded a piece of 2" angle iron to the tubing of the fender. I had the tank mounted under the battery but never really liked the location. It fits nicely attached to the fender.

The coolant overflow bottle/tank is from Mr. Gasket, I ordered it through Summit Racing. The bracket it came with was a joke ( I made my own) and I'm a little worried about the clear plastic sight tube but we'll see!

Sorry, I was referring to this pic with the compressor. Nice fit on the tank as well though!



Thanks for pointing me to who makes overflow tank. We're a dealer for Mr Gasket/Accel/Mallory, but I had no idea that they even made these. Learn something new every day.

Oh, I had to make the bracket on the back side of the compressor that attaches to the A/C compressor mount and the two tabs that I welded to the back side of the shock hoop. It's kinda hard to see in the picture but it supports the other side of the air compressor.

Here is a few updated pictures.

I had to remake my "C" pillar roll cage frame tie in on the drivers side because of the fuel filler hoses were in the way with the GenRight fuel tank.

I just cut off the original tabs, made one new tab and connected the other side to the rear shock hoop, turned out pretty good even it I say so myself

I bought a new GenRight stubby bumper but I wanted to make my own grill/winch guards. So I started bending tubing and this is what I came up with.

I welded a 1/2" flat strap to the inner edge os the hood that I cut off to stiff the edge up a little and make the edge not so sharp, then grinding it smooth.

I installed a new Poison Spyder drop down tail gate, but really don't like the tramp stamp. One real complaint I have with Poison Spyder is there logo on everything they make, makes me feel branded!

I just dropped a load off to the powder coater.

Next update should be assembly

I really like that bumper and your tube work. I'm toying with something like that right now. I like how it keeps branches off the paint when you're tearing through stuff.

Something similar around the windshield may be nice too...

In this case I was able to easily make my own lower section (tramp stamp)out of aluminum plate and lose their logo.

I have a few friends that have a lot of Poison Spyder products on their Jeep's and it starts to be too many Spyder logo's on the Jeep. Most of the stuff I got was from GenRight, for the most part you wouldn't know just by looking at it.

Now if the PS stuff was really cheap or free, then I would have a different opinion about having it all over my Jeep, but of course it's not so I don't!

Just my .02
