alright - i have an update. a minor one, but none the less, an update.

a friend has graciously donated a set of mismatched gear wrenches to me. im missing a couple sizes but its way better than nothing. i can pick up the individual ones as time goes on. HOPEFULLY my orders will pay out this week and on saturday i can get myself my tool set. seems like things have a way of not working out though whenever the government is paying you for something.

anyway:
got my bumper taken off





next thing to tackle is relocating this vacuum pump



thinking about cutting it from the frame and rotating it lock wise along the top bolt axis and welding it straight to the frame rail behind the anti-rock bar. should source me enough room. will have to test fit



got the big hawse on



had a friend photoshop this for me the other day because i am now without photoshop and i cant thieve a copy anymore. anyway - thinking about doing a faux J8 look. opinions?

Hmmmmm..... It looks good, but I don't like faux anything (watches, street locks, etc). Interesting idea, I've never seen anyone do it. Would you paint, vinyl,??

plastidip to start with since its cheap and easily removable. if i like it i would probably vinyl it.

i wish a JKL was an option. id have happily had a LWB 2 door. unfortunately the J8 panels and tops are unaccessible.

I'd say leave as is. The blue is a nice offset to all the black. Although plasti dip is a good first option so I'd start with that. Just my piece of mind.

I don't mind the look at all, but I would prefer that it get a full conversion to to L-JK or J8 status. You've already got the wheelbase...just do a little choppy-choppy work and build the panels that you need. Didn't we just have this talk somewhere else?

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

Advance Auto has the GearWrench Flex Head ratcheting wrenches 50% off until the end of August (I think the sale ends on the 26th). I picked up a SAE and Metric 7 piece set for about $35 each.

If you are missing just 2 or 3 wrenches from the ones your buddy gave you, it would be cheaper to get a full set..lol.

Figured I'd give you a heads up. It's a smoking deal if you are able to go ahead and bite the bullet.

What's the purpose of moving the vacuum pump?

Believe me, I've already looked into it. Chrysler won't release any J8 body panels or the softop sides that go with them. Fabricating them is out of the option for me as the body on the JK isn't straight, the whole panel would need to be stamped to get the right curvature. Converting it is just simply too much work to do when it's my DD.

It's location inhibits the mounting of the very large bodied CTI series winches inbetween the frame rails. Only 2012+ JKs have a vacuum pump. Companies make kits to relocate them to the engine bay where my SPOD sits - but obviously that's an issue. So I have to make my own solution.
