haha well it looks awesome i'll definitely be doing an ammo can like that

and thanks, its like brand new. still not a race car but it's does everything i expect it to! haha i think i'll also be doing 19 lbs injectors, replace FPR to a 45psi (i think that's what it was), and a 4.0 throttle body. as for the e-fan i still need to do some more research... i know everybody does tauras fans but i want one with a high and low speed (idk if the tauras fan has that) with a manual switch inside

A certain year(s?) of Taurus had dual fans and dual speeds. It's the year that everyone gets, so I hear they are hard to find. My fan never kicks on (it never needs to), so I haven't done the job on my Jeep, but I am thinking about doing it on the wife's Blazer. That thing gets hot even when it isn't towing anything.

And seriously, my fan kicked on once in the entire time I have owned my Jeep (5 or 6 years) and it scared me. I couldn't figure out why my Jeep suddenly sounded like a semi.

today i broke out the welder (arc) to re-learn how to weld haha i haven't done much welding since high school shop class and i'm ordering my DIY tube fenders probably this week to do by next weekend.

what i'm remembering is the most important thing (to me anyways) to lay down a nice bead is to be comfortable and to think about what's happening the entire time. so yeah, i just cut up some angle iron and did some basic lap joints. i'll def. be practicing more before touching the fenders haha

we also got the cobra running this weekend... she's a BEAST!

Looking good. I see you are from Waxhaw, i live in clover sc, which is right outside rock hill sc, which is right near waxhaw. Is there any good places to do some moderate wheeling around here? I also have a yj and am looking for some trails to take it down, nothing too crazy.

Nice build! You asked about boomerang shackles earlier, and yes they are often times used to help prevent shackle inversion. I'll leave you a link to a helpful thread with some more information, but there are plenty of us who run them (I have them front and rear on my YJ) and there are plenty of options when it comes to boomerang shackles. I ordered mine from a fellow forum user (local for me) VACJ5. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/t...ckles-1379950/ This is a thread all about boomerang shackles. Keep up the good work!

LED brake lights are done. I went to Lowe's for a hole saw and it was $40. There steel jigsaw blades for $7 right next to it so i grabbed those instead worked great! I was thinking I'd have to change the flasher but they still blink at the normal rate

Those tail lights turned out really good. I guess it's time I sack up and put mine in... Don't know what I've been waiting on but I keep seeing them and I think has sealed the deal haha. Good work!

Welllll I ordered one front rough country leaf spring to replace the bent one and they sent me two. I only got billed $109 shipped so cool! I'll replace both fronts so they can both break in together.

also, my 5/8" booms came today from Beach Metal Works (user VACJ5) all four shackles, all grade 8 hardware, $115 shipped. thanks Travis!

I got them painted as soon as I got home from work using appliance epoxy which is what I used for my front bumper and the bottom of my old jet ski. it's some pretty strong stuff.

P.S. I knew there would be a good reason to keep the old iron intake from the 351! (holding down the ladder) haha
