It's official the MJ is sold, just need to deliver the keys.

Using a little Jeep tech on old school. My Dad had been running into a lot of over heating issues prior to the engine swap, even after a 3 core aluminum radiator swap. Since this thing spends a lot of it's time cruising, low speeds, hot sunny days, and probably some blown big block something or other in front of it blowing hot exhaust into the radiator, all this and he's running the a/c full blast the whole time. So I talked him into ditching the mechanical fan for a Volvo fan, and if think it all will work perfectly once we get it all in place. As you can see, pretty easy to package in this application.

I had this ring made up, 15 3/4" I.D. x 19 5/8" O.D., and my Dad had it powder coated "chrome".

Using the factory fan shroud, we are going to hide the electric fan inside, so we don't screw with the classic looks of the engine.


We are using this as our temp switch
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/atm-3654
The typical ways that I've seen people doing, wouldn't cut it visually on this car, the in-line temp sensor in the upper radiator hose like I used would stick out like a sore thumb here. This temp gauge has programmable low and high set points, so we can eliminate the factory sensor for the idiot light, and replace it with a temp gauge and dual temp switch in one. Nice, clean, efficient.

Are you kidding me ... That cooling system is awesome :-) .... Kick *** .... A+ ......can't wait to see it in .. Hurry up :-)

I have run two stock fans ... Then the ford sho fan, then an Audi turbo fan , now I got some flex lite crap .... The Audi fan was the best by x100. I switched because my belt can off and jacked up the fan.

Last chance to get your vote in for the April COTM

Poly Performance long arm brackets showed up today, I'll start trimming the PJ crossmember to fit tomorrow, just need to pick up some blades. I'll take pics then.

Also started working with a buddy this afternoon to build me a rear bumper, based off of the Dirtbound Mojave, with a few custom touches.

As promised. It appears that I'm only going to have to trim to the bracket for the inner mounts and that's it.

Here's where the two don't mesh:

Cut here

I had to bevel this edge to clear the welds for the control arms on the brackets

And wala!

I'll bridge the control arm brackets to the leaf spring hangers for sure,but yeah, I'm pretty sure I'll plate the front and rear as well.

Found a way to clean up the heater control valve

The one on the left is factory, and the two on the right are from Fords, 74865 is from 03-08 F-series(150-550), and 74859 from 96-08 Explorer/Ranger/Mountoneer/etc
The biggest difference between the two is the 74865 is for 3/4" hose, and the 74859 is for 5/8" hose.... IE upper or lower.... perspectively.
I went with the 74859 since we had a replacement for an 97-01 XJ upper heater hose in stock to replace mine with a one peice.
