As promised here are the pics from the exhaust shop. still need to drop it and wrap it but my stuff from DEI hasn't come in yet. I also took pics of the clearance for the fuel pump, and the brake porportioning valve. I plan on redoing the brake lines soon but not soon enough so everything will have to stay where it is for now. I'm happy with it all for now. Plus it cost me $525 for the exhaust.

Today I worked the winch controls. It was pretty straight forward on the wiring. Here is the pic of the winch control with the top off and the 12 volt guy wires tapped in. It will make for an easier way to winch in drastic situations. Also the To Do List is slowly growing smaller.

I think that rear exit dual looks kind of bad ***. Be careful wrapping that stuff, it will rust out a lot faster but I'm sure you are aware of that. Good luck with the finishing touches. Looks good so far.

You can use a silicon spray over the wrap that helps with water and abrasion

Cheers!

It will help some but it wont prevent. I sprayed that silicone on the wrapped manifold and down pipe from my turbo on my RX7 and that **** was covered in rust in one year.

Firday I had a chance to get back in the shop. The idea was to try and get as much done as possible. I did have a few issues I had already noticed with the rig. One area was steering. Somehow....not exactly sure.....the steering basically had moved a good amount. What I mean when I say this is I could only turn 1 quarter turn to the right and then had way too much travel to the left. So I had to drop the pitman arm then center the steering again to get everything as close to back in line as possible.

Next was to upgrade the brakes. I had a buddy send me a booster custom built by a company in NC and everything bolted right in. So I drained the old master cylinder and then unbolted the two bolts. There is a cotter pin holding it onto the piston inside the firewall. Once thats removed, the arm slides off the piston and the master cylinder will pull out. The front and rear brake lines need to be removed the master cylinder....then its done. I then installed the new Master Cylinder and hooked everything back up. The only real difference in putting it all back together is the front brake line will go to the back and the back to the front. This is just how it fits for whatever reason. Next we bled the brakes and that was all she wrote. Power brakes to manual brakes is a huge difference. No more pushing the peddle to the floor....lol Last thing was hooking the vacuum line off the motor into the system.

I had to do some slight modifications to the power steering reservoir to get it all to fit but its fine now. I have noticed a few times when the motor wants to hesitate or shut off. I never had that problem before with the vacuum line plugged up. Just seemed to start happening when I put the pwer brakes master cylinder in.

Last thing I did befor pulling out of the shop was the rollover valve on my fuel tank vent line. I tucked it all up under the drivers side tub.

I don't feel like reading all the way back to figure this out so how do you get the shop space to use? Is it a buddy's or do you pay a local place to use their shop or what? Jeeps looking good btw I can't wait to see the first trail run
