So tonight a buddy of mine from work came over after we got off and we got a lot done. We worked for about 2 hours abd got the Advanced adapters shift linkage installed. The install went smooth and without any hickups

Also talked to Sean from Jeff Daniels and he sent me the picture of my new pulling slave cylinder.

I attempted to use the stock pushing slave but it just wouldnt work without interfering massively with the drive shaft. If the jeep was gonna be a mall crawler then no problems. But i have full intentions of making that Cummins work for its living.

Papitt. I cant wait to roll some smoke.

I have an awesome suprise in store for the exhaust stack for everyone. I think my idea will set the jeep off when done. But ya'll are gonna have to wait to see it

do you plan to weld a small bead around the ends of your radiator hoses. I feel like they would come loss if you dont give the hose clamp something to grab on to.

Do you think the hp30 is up to it?

I think the hp30 will last for a while. Although the type of wheeling and how hard i decide to push the skinny pedal can drastically reduce the 30's life span.

I have also considered that the extra weight on the cummins may also contribute to a shorter life span.

The way i look at it is, if and when it starts becoming unreliable i will upgrade to something stronger.

Nice. Sir..

When i bought the Jeep i would have never guessed where it would be headed to. So its hard saying what i will end up with.

See how long the 8.8 lasts. I havent seen many people complaining about busting them.
