I've seen other people do this on their build threads and thought it was a good idea.

Ok, so I'm on the second page now, so I'll stop reserving spots.

Thanks, I might buy something else as a beater vehicle later on, but the first goal is going to be getting out from under my tow rig payment. If I can just drive the Jeep to the trails then I wouldn't need the tow rig anymore.

The instrument cluster wiring connectors still there or wiring hacked up for the custom dash?.
A set of gauges runs 200-300 bucks

When it's wheelable, try a short drive on the street, see how that goes, you could decide that, street driving isn't for this Jeep.
If it drives and steers good at higher speeds and the brakes work well, then start looking for smaller narrower tires and deal with the bumpers, fenders, wipers and lighting.
Flatlander drove his in Virginia, without fender coverage, but with some kind of light stalks, you might want to look in to that
The only thing it needs to be wheelable right now is to mount the battery tray to the firewall... I plan on taking it to Crozet next weekend with some friends of mine to see how I like it and what I want to do to it. I took out a bank loan to pay for it so it has to have insurance and tags on it, and since it has to have all that I might as well have fun driving it around on the street if I can.

That thing is pretty ba**ss. I'll look forward to seeing it in person. If you don't have a specific inspection station in mind, my advice on street legality would be to take it to Starr Motors and have them do an inspection. The guys there all have Jeeps and they'll give you a list of things you will need to do.

Either way, good luck with this one.

Does anything have to me mounted to the steering wheel to make it street legal? If so then your screwed with that full hydro, a clock spring will never work with full hydro.

I see this rig has a Clayton lift, you gonna change that or see how it works before ya take a torch to it?

I'm starting to think I might not try to make it street legal, it would almost be cheaper to just buy another Jeep for daily driving. I might even buy a Cherokee... :gasp:

Yeah, the airbag is supposed to be there, lolz

As far as the clayton lift is concerned I'm going to wheel it as is for a while. I think the rig is up high enough that the couple inches for the lower link mounts shouldnt matter. The crossmember for the rear double triangulated links and the bottom of the Atlas hang down about the same amount. Besides I'm always reading about how much you like yours so now I can experience it for myself

How long do you guys usually accept as normal when you order parts for your TJ's?

I ordered a winch, a bumper, and some d-ring mounts on the 15th, and I haven't even recieved a shipping comformation yet...

I ordered a soft top from JC whitney, and got it 3 days later... I ordered some Carhart clothes a coupledays ago, and got shipping confirmation the next day, and it's scheduled to be delivered either tomorrow or wednesday...

I tried to order some parts from Savvy offroad a few days ago, and Gerald refused to sell to me, stating that I was to big a pain in the arse to deal with before... I thought that I was overly understanding with Gerald and Savvy and all of the repetitive problems I had with them in the past, and I thought that he and I had worked everything out. Blaine extended a very large olive branch, to help smooth things over and I wanted to repay him by continueing my buisness with Savvy, but it didn't work out that way.

So is it normal opperating procedure to have to wait several weeks to a month when you guys order parts from vendors on Jeep Forum? If so I'd rather pay full price and get my parts in a couple of days rather than save $10 and miss out wheeling with my friends because I haven't got my parts in yet

I ordered my currie tjj trackbar through savvy and I got pretty quickly. Within a week IIRC. Usually I get parts within a week or less since I'm smack dab in the middle of the US. Ordered somethin through poison Spyder and they got it to me in about a week. And I always choose the free or cheapest shipping available.

It took two months to get wheels and a 6 weeks for seats, it was normal since the all had to be built.
If it's stuff in stock then....a week to 10 days.
