Thanks. It was quite a project for me. Frustrating at times, but I'm pretty happy with the results.

The previous pics probably got buried under all of Khris' pictures of him jumping his 1983 Bultaco over a jeep.

I think Sturge replied when I posted them last...

How big was the shoehorn? Wow it's tight! Lol

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Nope, it wasn't bad at all. I had originally thought I would be able to put it in the stock location as far as transmission location, but that was not possible. I had to move the trans about 2.5 inches forward which then necessitated driveshaft modifications. The only thing I don't like is the hoses going every which way, but that is what happens when stuff is on the opposite side between two different engine compartments. I suppose I can live with that.

Great install Dave. Looks pretty good. Were you able to retail all of the factory gauges?


I love this weather, yesterday I went up cruised through the mountains. No top, sandals, shorts, and a t-shirt equals some rock hard glass cutting nipples when you see lows of 42 deg.


Andy you should do angels peak on Monday. I will be on the quads, but the summit does offer some of the best views around.

I thought about doing Angels Peak but want the parents to be able to do some crawling. Last time I did Angels Peak it was just a dirt road.

You could do the steel braided hose sleeve kits. When I was in high school and doing quite a few engine swaps on muscle cars, that is what we would do. Then zip tie the hoses together. It looks pretty good and makes for a much cleaner engine compartment.

Yup, all factory gauges are intact. I wanted it to look as stock as possible. I try not to do hack jobs. Anymore.

I know right where that is. You are the man for driving your Jeep up there. I have not gotten mine to that point yet, but I'm close... I always end up taking too much crap. Not to mention my two dogs.

I will look into that. Maybe if I can find black, it won't look out of place.
