We'll, I thought I had done a good test of my new headlights a while back, and I gave them a rave review. Not sure what I was smoking that day, cause these lights suck the big one!! They are literally EXACTLY like holding a friggin' candle out the window. Unreal! They look bright when ya look at them directly, but I swear, there is no light getting to the ground or anything else in the vicinity! It's hilarious! So, obviously, they are outa there! And now I need to decide on what to buy next. I want lights that can be seen from space. Any suggestions?
kc has some nice led lights I was thinking about trying out, kinda pricey but ain't all led products lol here's a link
I got most of my powder-coated parts back this week. My hood hinges and some interior trim pieces will be done next week.
I took my vent windows apart and had them PC'd. Then I put them back together with all new seals, channel and new tinted glass. I set up a quick jig to help with the riveting process. Even with the jig, it was a total pain in the @$$....
All back together...
Some interior shots... Almost complete...
My Lokar shifter...
It is looking more like a real truck these days...
It sure is nice and quiet inside the cab now. The whole truck is extremely tight with no rattles or squeaks.
At the beginning of this project I had decided to paint white stars on the doors and hood as part of my tribute to our armed forces. But I have been hesitant to do it, because I really don't want white on my Jeep. So, today a friend suggested black stars to help maintain the current color scheme. And his idea sounds great to me. A black star on the hood with only small black stars on the cab top sides. Then some black lettering in some places. I am also planning on etching the glass in a few spots. More on that later.
This truck gets more awesome every time I see it!!

I decided to make a change on my radiator and fan setup. I picked up a much higher CFM fan from a 98 Volvo, which is the exact same fan as the very desirable Taurus fan. Except, it has a much better mounting flange. I also got the relay pack. All for $20. They are very powerful and are 2 speed.
I drew it up in CAD this morning then sent it to the plaz table. After that, I bent it into shape and welded it up and sanded it smooth.
I wasn't having any issues with the other fan. But it's winter. So I know it would not have done well with high heat. Plus it didn't cover the entire radiator surface. Now the shroud covers the whole core and it will be much more efficient.
