Thanks! There will be a lot happening to the jeep in the next couple weeks.

Yesterday I started fabing up some mounts for the 50" light bar. Today I have to work on my tow rig/DD

Here's a picture of it for all the cummins fans.

I'm not a Cummins fan but I hate the high school rednecks with their chipped Dodges (Fords too)and annoying exhaust that feel like they have to roll coal while I'm behind them in my topless Jeep. They need a sockin' to. I'll take my clean quiet Duramax.

No offense intended

Its a 12v. I totally agree about the *** holes that smoke random people especially topless vehicles or motor cycles. The only people that i smoke are the ones that tailgate me.

Well a couple weeks ago the machine shop went to assemble the head on the new motor and realized I ordered the wrong springs, so I had them order the right ones. Then last week when they went to install the pistons into the block I also ordered the wrong set of pistons... Expensive Lesson learned don't trust what you read online.. Now I have the correct pistons on the way. So other than re ordering parts all I have done is start the light bar mounts. This week I will cut the old motor mounts off the jeep and pull the old wiring harness out. I'll put up some pictures of the light bar mounts once they look like more than a pile of metal.

Yesterday I worked on the light bar mounts more.


Today I took the plates to work and chamfered the holes. All that's left it the tabs for the light bar. Hopefully I'll get those done tomorrow or the next day then I can burn them together and paint them.

I'm liking that YJ. Just wondering, what radiator did you use?

I hate that I can't make Moab with mine... maybe a repeat next year!

I used a Novak radiator the radiator itself works great it I don't like the way they mount it. I had to modify their brackets to keep the radiator from falling out of the bottom.

Thanks, I was looking at that one. I thought it was supposed to mount in the stock location? That was one of things I liked over a custom one.

It does mount in the stock location. But the mounts they use sandwich the radiator to hold it in place. I'll see if I can dig up some pictures to explain it better.

I just looked on there site and they have changed there mounting system. I would assume it works better but they don't have very many pictures of it.

Yes, that's what I had thought... I'll have to have a chat with them when I am closer to ready for it. I'll also have a chat with Griffin and Howes, they also make a quality product.

Yesterday I got the motor back from the machine shop. So this weekend I'll get it put back together and painted. I'm still waiting for my dam brown dog mounts to show up.. I ordered them a month ago.

My BTF cage kit, browndog motor mounts and my air/fuel gauge came today. I also picked up the new oil pump today. I officially have all the parts for my motor swap/upgrades.

Oh and I finally found a set of waggy springs so I can stretch the rear axle at the same time of this motor swap. I'll probably drag the jeep into the shop this weekend and get everything started.
