Intake and exhaust already done 20-21 mpg :cheers2:

In the works is rear bumper not sure which one yet LSR incline front bumper with winch long arm 4in kit not sure which yet e-lockers wheel spacers probably running 285-70-17 Kelly safari tsr tires

Going to be the ultimate hunting jeep had a wrangler that was there due to having two dogs and our first kid on the way it wont do. So bear with me through my first build thread any opinions or input would be great thanks everyone:thumbsup:

Looks good...look forward to seeing the progress.

good looking Jeep. With e-lockers do you plan on swapping axles? or at least the rear aluminum 44?

seu83 12-13-2011 09:12 PM

Wow, nice find. Yeah with the current axles you won't be able to find e-lockers for it but you should already have variloks. Good luck with the build.

I was contimplating it I'm not sure if I will do elockers for sure or not it is still in the thought process

You can get a lunch box locker for the aluminum 44 but no one makes e lockers for them anymore. ARB use to make one years ago but they were cracking the case when locked

Did you do something to your tail pipe tip? It looks black. Been thinking of spraying mine with high temp engine paint and curious if you did, how its holding up.

I used high temp paint and then I cut 2 in out of my rear hanger and tucked the tip further up

I like it a lot. Does it have the Up Country Suspension?

Lol, I kinda have a similar outlook on two tone rims. Two tone seats, yes. Two tone paint, no. Two tone rims, no.

I'da probably done them all black just because of the level of contrast b/w the front face of the rim and the light colored spokewells that kinda draw attention to some more unsightly crevices of the jeep namely the cavities inside the Rim. The normal finish on those rims is pretty nice and I'm always a sucker for dark graphite colored rims.

I have been thinking about powder coating all black but then I hesitate and think I should wait till I get it lifted and see how it looks. Let me know what you think:confused:
