oh - yeah. i forgot to post about that. they sent me the correct ones, however i was unaware that the cup that holds the actual bumpstop requires about a 1/2" total of material ground off of it for the spacer to slip over it. the tolerances of the spacer are designed so that there are hundreths of an inch of clearance between the spacer and the actual bumpstop tower. so - i destroyed a spacer for nothing. however Jeff was kind enough to give me a handsome discount on the fresh pair that i ordered because he felt partially at fault for not giving me the heads up on the spacers.

i really wish Rokmen had more JK products, i love dealing with Jeff and everything they make is incredible.

my front Anti-Rock came today, as well as my new 20# Co2 tank. i'll post pictures of that later and the topic of the tank once photobucket isnt down anymore and i can upload the pics. its been down ALL day. retards.

Awesome read dude, I also have a 2012 JKU Rubicon (In Cosmos Blue Even) that I'm building up right now... No where near like yours, but I have a Metal Cloak game changer (No 6 pak shocks, just Old Man Emu ones) kit on the way.

Love the Cosmos Blue...

anyhoo - aluminum front antilock = tits. its going on tomorrow night



tank - i now work for an medical and industrial gas company, so i got the in on cool ****. so i took the liberty of taking it upon myself to build a brand new 'powertank' for myself and pay half the price and get more awesomeness.

my first OBA Co2 tank as a 'The Source' tank, just a small aluminum 10# tank. it did a wonderful job. the only issue i ever had with it was when i got to 37s and it would only last 2 trips. especially when my peoples would see me fill a 37" tire from 3PSI to 30PSI in 20 seconds.

(just spent 15 minutes combing through my old build thread to find this pic. FU photobucket)



so i ordered a brand new made in USA Worthington 20# Co2 tank. fully twice as big as my last one, and shes pretty big. weighs 28lbs empty.



so its just a tank and valve right now, but over the next few weeks im going to get in a 150PSI Regulator for it, rock handle, mount, quick disconnects, hose, ARB chuck and im body matching the tank. thats right - i ordered 2 cans of Cosmos Blue today from the body shop, they'll be ready tomorrow morning for me to pick up. then the bottom 6" im going to do in bed-liner, since no one manufactures a tank boot for this size of tank.

anyway, the point is im going to have a little build thread on it. and from what my friends are saying to me, i should build them and sell them. so im building this one as it is right now fully as a proof of concept to present to my boss - if enough people want them and are willing to make a small deposit, ill do a run. im shooting to build this setup for under $300. considering its a 20# tank vs a 10#, which is the norm - I'm doing awesome. Powertank sells their complete getup for almost $500, for a 10 pounder.

so, if anyone is interested. doesnt matter the size. shoot me a PM and i'll let you know in the near future if this is going to take shape and can give you a rough estimate on cost.

well - i got sidetracked tonight and i wasnt able to get everything done i wanted to. hell - not even part of what i wanted to get done as far as the jeep is concerned.


buuuut i did make a little progress on the tank

last night i ordered paint and picked it up today, body match


got the tank prepped. quick surface rough with 320 grit and a wipe down with alcohol


2 quick passes with etching primer


cosmos going down


final clear coat


look at that shine


body matching would obviously be an option, an expensive one at that. just saying.

overall im really pleased with how the paint came out. I'm going to let it dry the whole weekend, and most of the beginning of next week while im on duty this weekend and find time to finish this up.


saturday night im stopping by at Tony's (FlatLander) and were going to throw the front spacers and the anti-rock on. hopefully everything will work.

ordered it from a shop in town called Bumper to Bumper. they're basically a private owned Moog shop. the Moog warehouse downtown mixed the paint for me, DuPont. im a PPG person, but im not going to complain about DuPont!

for this my sprayer was 2 rattle cans i had made for this instance. as i only have limited access at my dads where i do most of my work (i dont have my own garage) i cant break out my gun and compressor and go to town. my dad will have a fit in the next couple days when he finds the blue dust in the vicinity of my "paint booth"

They are really low, thankfully theyre kicked out pretty far and shouldn't get hung up too much. But yes, it will be addressed
