Also I can't really see the back from the pics but you are running a fuel cell? If not can you run those almost flat XJ leaves with a gas tank? Thanks.

RCI2161A cell frenched down to bottom of rear frame rails. I could run the leaf setup with a stock tank but not with the stretch!

Been looking at this motor for awhile. Do you have a build thread? And how do you like the motor power wise?

I've never done a full Jeepforum build thread but I did one on our club board. The 3.3L is a great engine for a Jeep vehicle. Power is adequate and easily tuned to get 120hp and 300ft-lb which is plenty.

Yep, club board = IndyORV.

I have had no issues whatsoever with the 8.8 since it was installed. Heck, I even ran a LP30 in the front for the first year until I was able to upgrade to the D44. I'm not saying an LP30 with 37's and a diesel is a good idea, just that it held up surprisingly well through Moab, Harlan, Badlands etc. with only two broken shafts throughout the wheeling season.
