some updates on the custom cage build. still need to add some tubing gussets (need to get new notcher) and then burn those in. then work on A pillar, windshield bar, and 2 harness bars (once my die comes in). wont have the die before moab this weekend though. and im considering using a roll on bedliner for roll cage. cause i dont want to have to touch up the cage in the future. head clearance is good with straight bars. soft top works. will be getting some wake board speaker pods for the rear. some shots.

so quite a bit has happened since my last update.

as far as jeep updates:
finished putting the gussets on the roll cage. and am now in the works on the front portion of cage and racing seats and harness bars. I also picked up a 79 D60 kingpin front axle and a 14B rear axle. but wont be building those for a while since i dont have the coin to put into new wheels and all the brackets, driveshafts, all that jazz. the 14B already has new calipers on it, which saves me from doing the swap. I'll also be relocating to Denver area this year.



now, for the good stuff.

hit up moab last month. Towed her out there behind the raptor (which i sold few weeks ago). Used a buddies BIG *** trailer. towed beautifully with that long of a trailer with little weight on the raptor, but dam was it heavy. met up with some crazy canadians out there eh.

pics or it didnt happen, well, okay, because you asked.















had 2 almost roll overs (Jay...) no damage or brakes (pardon my pun, because we had to replace an entire brake caliper, pads and rotor on one jeep). Cant wait to be back out there again soon. was absolutely the greatest trip of my life.

either A. you get them custom made online. or B. what i did was go to a local Tshirt shop in moab. and they sold stickers and they had a list of all the trails and were able to make them for me while there.

managed to FINALLY break my D30 ring gear, pulling a porsche panamera out of a ditch. of course, i broke it 2 days before i would be pulling the axle for the D44 swap....


Front axle built up and installed.
Artec Truss added
Artec Heavy duty raised trackbar bracket added
Hydro assist tabs added
Hydro assist Tie Rod Clamp Added
Teraflex Slotted Big Brakes Added


Rear axle built up (installing tomorrow)
Artec truss added.
Artec raised trackbar bracket added.
Artec coil perches added.
Artec/Rock Krawler 3 link rear bracket added.
Tom Woods 1310 Driveshaft added.



Will be adding Artec rear lower control arm/shock mounts in the near future when i upgrade to long arms.

Also am in the market for beadlocks. Looking at method 105 and hutchinson and ATX new slabs II. Looking to do a candy apple red (darker than regular red) for the wheel. and then a black ring. i work at a powdercoating shop, so will be easy to get done. will match the rest of the red on jeep to wheels as well.


Also will be adding soon:

Rock Krawler triple threat long arms
New Synergy Drag Link
Nitto Trail grapplers 40x13.5x17
Beadlock Wheels
sPOD

decided to clean up my wiring and a bit and get rid of the switches that i was using before. hated them on the A pillar. but it was cheap and easy.

making my own "sPod" so to speak.

6 switch panel (couldve done more, but if i want more i could always make another)
fused and relayed distribution panel. all wired and ready to just plug into the accessories (when i get around to it)
custom switches ordered today from OTRATTW for:
50" light bar
windshield duallys
front locker
rear locker
rock lights
interior LEDs

thinking that when i remake the next one, i will put 8 switches and have room for an air gauge for my VIAIR compressor i have waiting to be installed.

Pics so far.
