I didn't see turbocharged V8 swap on your list. What's up with that?

I thought I had that on there.

The 4.0 will do fine. It's holding 40 psi of oil pressure at idle.

Can't figure out where it put it. Thinking about under the passenger tail light.

I will send you my amp mount heat sinks. I have them figured out. You could probably do 2 more tags. I might put one on each side if I take my zombie response team stickers off later on.

Do you still have the tool for harness tabs?

I haven't heard much this weekend. Hope that means your getting it finished. The trailer looks great as well but don't get too distracted. Wish I had your skills.

Worked all day yesterday on beasleys trailer. Then tinkered with the Jeep for about an hour yesterday night. Got up this morning and reset the distributor to factory spec as the write up said to that I posted earlier last week. The Jeep runs AWESOME now!!

Changing the valve cover gasket this afternoon, then knocking a few more things off the list later on.

Time distributor DONE
valve cover gasket DONE
Drill out knuckle for insert
Swap out PCM DONE
Install rear DS
Replace speed sensor
Fix gas gauge

Just need to finish these sometime soon:

Install skid plate
Build front skid
Wire and plumb trans cooler
Install seat heaters and remote start
Install interior led lighting
Build spare mount flange
Build rear cage and resi mounts
Install fire extinguisher mounts
Paint cage gunmetal gray
Repaint bed assembly
Sand and buff paint work
Detail inside out
Touch up chips from assembly
Undercoat inner fenders and rear wheel wells
Get dent pushed out of hood from garage door.

Fill with gas and enjoy.

Edited list:

So today I got to move forward for a little, then take a few steps back. The radiator decided to spring a leak, and the PCM is giving me a Neutral safety switch code. (P0705)

Other than that I spent most of the day cleaning the garage. I just could not work in the mess any longer. So, with a clean garage and a helluva list. I have my work cut out this week.

Should have a video of it on the road later this week, I am itching to drive her down the road.

You asked me about my double shear tabs.
I decided to cut some out on the table and see how they turn out.
(100x easier then cutting them by hand like I did for my jeep - before the table)


Do you need a set of 10 still?

Don't know if you can get it any cheeper than I can, but mine cost me about $200 as an employee. You may want to try this first....
