scoutboater,

Its funny that you mention the blind spot. My father just tonight asked me about the new blind spot. I cant actually answer the question yet. I sat in the Jeep tonight in the garage and imagined I was on the road and while it has created a new blind spot I think its okay. Now I may drive it for the first time and say I cant see sh*t but honestly I will work around that little problem.

Last night I bought the tube fender kit from Offroad Utopia. I like the idea of welding my own fenders because I can adapt them into what I need.

So today I call them number on Offroad Utopia's website and an older very sweet lady answers the phone Hello she says. I think to myself, thats weird no company name, but whatever. I then ask her, is this Offroad Utopia she politey responds that No this is not the offroad shop and she has had the number for approxmiately 9 months. I say thank you and sorry for bothering you and hang up.

I immdiately think I have been had. So i get back on Offroad Utopia's webiste and send an email to the listed email address asking if the company was still in business or had gone under. Thankfully about an hour later or so I get an email back which stated that are still in business and are working on my kit.

Hopefully next week they will be here.

Great job. Just a suggestion. You might want to put a piece of flex pipe on the horizontal exhaust pipe and fasten the vertical stack to the body so it doesn't put so much stress on your exhaust manifold when your off road. Nice looking stack. Similar to a big rig.

This going to be a daily driver? Can't imagine having a stack that low, and sticking out like that will be a good thing in a parking lot. Some kid gets out of a car next to you and burns themselves on it, it might not be awesome. Having one in front of the cabin also seems less than ideal. Getting sued and smogged out by exhaust can be a downer.
The rest seems cool. Good luck.

Alleheeldriven.

Yeah you make valid arguments. But like Toby Keith says in American Ride song. Spill a cup off coffee, make a million bucks.

I am not concerned about being sued. Lets be honest if someone wanted to sue me they prolly could from all the mudd and black smoke which will be obstructing the windshield of their Prius.

This will be a daily driven Jeep, although i am hopeful that the amount of parking lot time Oscar see's will be kept to a minimum .

As far as the exhaust fumes go. I cant honestly say. I dunno what its gonna be like. It may be completely unbearable and i will have to change it. But i will cross that bridge when i get to it.

This country was built on the backs of revolutionary thinkers who thought out of the box and from time to time they got things wrong, but the chance of failure never prevented them from trying.

Papitt,

Hey looked up the video, looks and sounds great. That Bronco is sweet. The wrap looks pretty neat also.

Great job.

So last night i needed a brass fitting to go from my slave cylinder to my stainless steel line and miscellaneous pieces.

I get to the local parts shop and wouldnt you know closed for the day. I was 18 minutes late.

So this morning i went and got everything i need to get the jeep moving and finish the coolant.

I decided that i wanted to paint my coolant pipes , so i did.

I am very happy with the end result. I ended up welding it to my frame because there was no way i could use a bolt because of fuel and brake lines on the inside of the frame rail.


I got some fine thread jam nuts today which i will use with washers and drill a hole in the clutch fork so the slace will be finished.

Also got my tube fenders from Offroad utopia. They look very sturdy although i was a little disappointed that the fender kit didnt include any plate steel. Just tubes. Ohh well if i have come this far no reason i cant figure that out.
