Brown Santa strikes again! This time he brought my Rokmen high clearance skid plate.....of course it needed to be painted, lol. I think i might have to get a pair of Dana44 diff covers and paint them up too.

Its a huge power difference! I still need to upgrade my fuel injectors to 24#ers to get the advertised 260-270HP. If i had to guess id say im 140-150 now. The extra torque should handle 33"s or maybe 35"s. the 31"s spin pretty easily, its been a long time since ive owned a vehicle that i had to clean the rubber out of the wheel wells, lol

Lol, im exaggerating my clutching capabilities a bit. The torque throws my prosthetic off the clutch. Ill post a vid of my brother smoking the tires next time i visit him. The Jeep is to fast for a one legged guy.......video request noted, but i won't be the driver. Im sure he would be happy to smoke em again.

I just re read my entire thread! Yes all five pages, lol. I noticed that i never commented about my oil pressure. After my stroker rebuild, i get 75psi at cold idle.....settles to about 35 at hot idle. Oil pressure builds to around 45-50 when driving and never drops below 35 at idle.

So, everything is going well except for the exhaust leak that i developed. Ill look into that this weekend.


As my budget and plans change, here is what i want to do next....

2" coil spring spacers (OME lift just not in the budget right now)
Rancho shocks for 2" lift (my brother has a set for FREE)
255/85/R16 BFG MT KM2's (approx 33X10.5x16)
24# injectors
Fix exhaust leak (may try replace cat and muffler with strait pipe).. No Echeck here 😊
New muffler, im sure what i mentioned above will be too loud, lol.

I havent posted any updates in a while. Stroker started making noise, so i dropped in an ATK crate motor. Miss the power, but it started getting cold and i wanted my Jeep for the winter. Ill work on the stroker motor if the spring. Too cold to take up garage space, wife wanted her spot back.
