You do great work, it looks and sounds awesome. That smoke stack in the front with the jeep heat shield is sweet! very envious!
only thing you are missing are square headlights

Cycle guy. The engine was remaned from Cummins 80K miles ago. How many total miles it has i am not sure. When i had the oil pan off i could still see the cross hatching in the cyclinder bores. Motor runs like a dream.

I plan on turning the fuel up to get some coal but right now i am focused on getting Oscar funished.

Hey does anyone know how to get your Jeep in a magazine ? I would love to see it it in JP MAG or 4wheel drive. And the like. I think that would be neat to see it in print.

Bong , thanks for the complement . The key for me ia to not get in a hurry, but its so hard to not rush things so i can just drive it.

Someone here said that driving their diesel jeep never gets old ans i completely believe it. I am very happy i chose the diesel swap.


Thanks for the complements guys.

Inside is def not quite. I have seen the inserts and i feel like i am going to leave it as is. I worked way to hard to get that sound to muffle it

Very nice. I didn't figure you would want to silence it at all.


I know mine is different... But I have yet to grow tired of the novelty of driving my diesel jeep, just being asked about it. I like to be subtle, but a diesel jeep is anything but subtle!

You might go to the EJS in Moab, there are several meet and greets that the JP guys attend, I have met several of them there

A buddy and I worked more on the fenders tonight.



forumrunner_20121104_024200.jpg

Got the exhaust hole cut on the passenger side.

Also got a lot of my welds smoothed out on the drivers side.

My gf works nights at Grant. She always has good videos for me to watch!

10-3, It looks like you want to upgrade to 35" km2s by making a partial trade of your tires to me... Let me know if you're interested.

Anyone else having issues with the main website? Both my laptops which have no problems anywhere else will only load the jeepforum main page. If i click on anything else it tells me that the website is down.
