thx!

50" led lightbar has VERY low priority (zero priority?!)

1. I have enough lumens at the moment ... I would rather think about reducing current draw by eliminating all remaining conventional lights and swapping trucklite genII led driving lights in and doing rear led lights. (low priority!)

2. engine oil pan and transmission skid has to come first ... either
option a) with modular UA tummy tuck (and redo exhaust setup ) ... or option b) a skid row or ucf engine skid connected to my stock TC skid (keeping my brand new custom SS exhaust system)

3. am thinking of either
- putting Staun II internal beadlocks on my polished wheels (cheapest and very functional ... but I somehow dislike my polished wheels)
- Interco Birddogs (I know ... fugly in some eyes ... but at least black ) (semi beadlock ...)
- ATX SLABs (want them badly ... but major expense and single sided beadlock)
all of those solutions are relatively light!

I like your rear carrier did you install that? Could you shoot some close ups open and closed

well ... that is a ORFAB tire/can carrier. I installed it myself ... yes. It took about 8 hours without a helping hand. Make sure you have the right tools ... one of the drill bits needs to be extra long ... hehe. You are going to perforate your toy quite a bit!
Somewhere on JF there is a write up ...

close ups when I get to it in the next days ...

have you looked at the clearance between the transmission/transfercase and the body? how much can you lift those pigs up(tummy tuck)?

I already have a 1.25 BL ...

did not systematically test clearance above transmission ... but with the stock skid it looks like I have plenty of air above the tranny!

My main concern is bell housing to firewall clearance ... I would think. (but eventually moddable ... just eventually a PIA)

im starting to do my research on a 5.3 swap. I saw your post about belly clearance on the pirate thread. with the pictures you posted showing a side view of the engine bay, it looks like you have plenty of room between the engine, and electric fan. if the engine could be pushed forward a hair, do you think youd have more clearance for the bell housing, or would it not be enough to gain anything?

ok .. just got back home ... I need to check where my crank pulley sits right now to be able to say more.

I will take some pics from below.

As you might have noticed I was forced to use the stock unmodified frame horns as mount points ... so a quite unusual engine position and eventually angle already. (interestingly we managed to keep the stock front driveshaft and the TW extended spline CV rear.)

The frame no mod regulations here dictated and restricted my build quite a bit ... so I am not sure if I have a margin at the firewall. And finding out seems quite challenging as well

fair enough. lol I just remembered that the Savvy guys ran a flat skid on their KOH rig with the LS engine. I could always ask gerald. and here i thought the US only made ridiculous regulations lol.

with that being said, im really happy to see someone who has done this in a very clean, very complete way. i like how you got the gauges, electric fan working and actually putting a decent exhaust on.

WELL DONE, SIR!
