blk01wj Build

Hello all, This weekend will start a journey and a shrinking of the wallet. I have been collecting parts for the past two years waiting for a start date. My 4.0 has seen better days (185K of neglected miles prior to my purchase) and it seems there no better time to get started with my project.

-Projector/halo head lamps and driving lights
-some interior swap from previous WJ
-changed over to LED lights

Mods to be completed:

-4.9L reman stroker: (complete build sheet to come)
-Not sure about an cold air intake yet. Had a Volant on my old wj- not sure if it actully did anything except make hard accel noisy
-Doug Throlley Headers ceramic
-Three...yes count them three high flow Cats
-Flowmaster 70
-Kolak's 3" cat back
Called Nick and asked for recomendations and he put it all toghter in a package based on my particulars.
-64mm TB
-I am sure some tuning will be required
-4" lift
-16" Raceline Wheels: Raptor
-Cooper SST's 285/75R16
-4.56's
-Grill

Today I flushed the cooling system before I start the engine change. Neglected! I opened the petcock --- nothing! WTF???? Poked around alittle, the rusty goo and sediment in the bottom of the rad was rediculas. Anyway, flushed 3 times to get it clear.

Started the tare down today. Removed the TB. What a carbonized mess. That is as far as I got before nightfall.

I had to enlarge the intake TB plate to 64mm. I used a metal rotory file to remove the aluminum.
