Looks good Jay. What is your frame height now? Ground to bottom of the frame?

Might save some weight if you went to narrower tire as well.

Looking good!!
Is the top of the rear hoops tied into anything? I'm in the process of doing basicly the same on mine right now and was thinking that they might need to be braced.

It is 22" from the ground to the center of my belly pan and 23 1/2" from the ground to the bottom of the frame by the center body mount. That is around 1/2" taller than where I was before swapping out all of the coilovers. I'm estimating a slight drop once the springs settle a little.

Another huge reason I am looking at my options.

It is not currently braced up top, but will be tied into my cage in the next month or so. The bottom of the shock hoop has a gusset on each side, so hopefully that will get me by until I tie in the top.

So I have 22 days until I leave to pre-run/race for the first ECORS race of the year. I have a few business trips in the mix too, which will leave me about 13 days to get this stuff finished. Since I don't want to be cranking on this at the 11th hour, that brings it down to about 10 days. In those 10 days, I was hoping to get some practice and seat time in along with getting the coilovers tuned, and I haven't quite figured out how to squeeze that in. Hmmmm....



Still to go:
  • Install front Riddler diff cover (need to buy diff fluid)
  • Install fire wall (need to finish mount and drill filler hole)
  • Get numbers and stickers cut (need to send art work to printer)
  • Rubber buffer for PSC half doors (keep doors from vibrating)
  • Replace coolant reservoir (arrives tomorrow via UPS)
  • Rear tail gate cover/skin (either buy Savvy's or have one custom made)
  • Install submarine belts on both seats (have to find them in the garage)
  • Install new springs on c/o's (won't arrive until next week)
  • Swap out tops
  • Prep pit gear

Nothing major on the list, but still a ton of tedious little stuff.

Your build is very impressive man. I am going to try and be as thoughtful in my build as you have with yours. Very meticiously planned. Congrats on the baby boy btw, haven't checked back on this build in awhile so I didn't know you had a little one. Bet he loves the jeep.

Firewall project complete!

One thing checked off the list, and three or four more added.


RCI fuel cell with Artec mount:


Marking the holes to be drilled for the mount:


Drilled and being bolted down:


Front tabs in place:


I used a 4 1/2" hole saw for the filler hole. Then lined it with some door trim:





All finished!

This should silence the fuel pump a good bit as well. I will eventually put a billet fuel cap on, but I didn't want to spend another $50 on this project.



From in the cab:

Looks good I need to do something similar with mine eventually. I don't know if I'll keep the same cell though which is keeping me from tackling this project. Eventually I'd like to go to a flatter cell with internal bladder and run an external fuel pumps instead of the TJ pump. I know your probably looking at swapping to a bladder cell soon for racing anyway.

Fantastic....let me know how it does with muffling the fuel pump and annoying sound of the rollover valve ball.

My fuel pump seems to be dying. Start ups take a few times I want to do away with the stock pump so bad.

Looks good Jay

Would you choose Treps again ? Trying to decide, also looking at MTRKs but I don't know anyone other than you who has used Treps? I only drive about 5,000 miles a year so treadwear isn't really important but I do drive to the trail.

FYI, if you ever want to get rid of the footman loops, once you've drilled out the rivets Chrysler christmas tree plastic fender things press in real well.
