once again the dudes at core 4x4 hooked me up. all came out to bring my jeep to my house where it will be finished. we threw her on the trailer.








just pulled in front of my house, we sprayed all the mud off my axle before throwing it in garage to. my dad just wanted to play with water.

made some burgers and beers for the guys, many people left but some of us stayed and hung out.



after some food and beer, most people left so i decided to tackle wires with one of my friends.

removed the dash and started disconnecting,




the previous owner thought it was a good idea to incorrectly wire in a auto start.. in a manual jeep.... yeaa finally got to clean up the harness.



installed petals and wires



then threw in the steering shaft and the dash. i didn't hook up the other side its all radio and accessories, heat. which im not using heat in the new jeep.



the whole dash is temporary, the whole thing is being custom made into the cage.

Thanks! I got so many people right down the street it's pretty nice to have such an Awesome group of people.

I'm picking up a pair of d44 for the future axle swap, 8.8 d44 4.56. But I still need to get cage and dashboard done first. Get a new master cylinder, run break lines. And a bunch more stuff.

i got out again today, more busy work, nothing much fun. im goign to start getting the armor started
i got the steering shaft and fuel lines connected


wanted to try this out, so i did, i forgot the after pic, it will be here soon.





threw the fuel tank in to get ready to test start it since the roll, need to extend brake lines, and get my fuel cell.


custom front mount, cant get it dialed perfectly till i make fenders.







hood on! grill on!




painting the hinges green.





my hood adjuster got bent so i had to do this..




we bent it back and ran a tap threw it, did the trick. the fenders will hold it much better then these rods.

peeled off the stickers, heated up the tub inside to get it off east

picked up a new tool(toy)



i have been away from my jeep. i just started my new job(which is sweet!)

i tinkered around with my buddies jeep, he bent up some tube and i welded it for him. custom seat mounts also fabbed up.




on mine i got a e350 master cylinderf or my 8.8disc brake. and dana 44 front disk when i switch. running open front and an manual adjusting rear proportion valve. i forgot to take some pics but not to much going on. soon will be though.



ran the front wires and brake lines, waiting for some more cash again.



another buddy also picked this guy up for a great deal. the frame is REALLY bad in the rear. but i can salvage parts from my old frame. new floor on driver side. and its ready to wheel.
