So on a sadder note....... My dream build for the Tank Killer has fallen in my lap. 73 CJ6 for sale with my name all over it. NO MONEY for the purchase. Just too many things to consider for going forward like a Wedding and a house. Absolutely kills me to not be able to pick it up because its in great shape and I would honor it with an awesome build designed to take Wounded and Disabled Veterans out wheeling. Problem with the Tank Killer now is she is so short wheelbase wise even with a stretch and only a 2 seater. Just sucks to have this fall in my lap when I can't pick it up. Either way whoever does I hope they build it like I would have even though its a passenger driver! I do not ever ask for donations or support with my build but IF you would like to Help with a donation amount to help me aquire this vehicle please message me. The man isn't asking for much!

You could stretch the tank killer to make it a cj6, that's all they are is a stretched 5. Cut it right behind the door and add what's needed to the body and frame and bam a cj6 that's already built up.

Yeah insane amount of pain to go through that. Your talking welding in sheet metal, attempting to make the cuts, then chopping the frame and welding in extensions, list goes on and on. This would be much easier. I was planning on what you suggested until I saw this.

We got back from KOH week before last and being around all the awesome Jeeps made me want to start the Tank Killer when I got home. I mean it has been since November since I started it. Having a battery kill switch really helps though. With this winter being as bad as it has been and all the below freezing conditions we have experienced the battery should have needed a kick start. Good news is it didn't. Fired right up the other day when I pulled the cover off of it and cleaned her up. Oh yeah there was also about a foot of snow on the ground and the snow plows had kind of walled her in. Took me a few minutes to dig her out.

We missed you at KOH, you were out on a run when we stopped by. I believe we met Mark, I'm terrible with names.

Looked like the mission was a success.

KOH was a HUGE success for 4 Wheel to Heal. Sorry I missed you brother. Mark is correct! He is our treasurer and one of the Co-Founders. Glad you had a chance to stop by and I hope you took the opportunity to pick up some of our merchandise!

Oh ya, My kid went nuts over the paracord items. Picked up a few shirts for my dad and myself.

Keep it up!

So had the rig out yesterday doing some snow wheeling in a few of the local parking lots....lol. Had too.... Last year and a few years passed I have had trouble with my windshield fogging up. I had removed the older heater.....(kind of regret it now) not because I want heat necessarily in the Jeep but just a full on defroster for the windshield when she starts fogging. So I have had my mind wrapped around a few things I am thinking about. One and I am set on buying it tomorrow but not looking forward to how much real-estate in my Jeep it is going to take up. Its the Mojave Heater from Flex a lite. Seen really good reviews for it and it is very simple to install. The heat / cool lines off the LS motor will get opened up, and routed through the fire wall. Its going to be a VERY tight fit though. The thing measures 10in x 9in x 5in and the front piece I think will add about 2-3in more. Not excited about that. Plus the defroster port is on the front and I do not want it to look tacky routing the defroster tubing back and behind the dash.

Also if some of you remember I sealed the defrost holes between the windshield and the body in an attempt to keep water from leaking through my old rusted out frame. I have also made a few cuts inside that defroster hole area to incorporate my gauges so I'm not looking forward to putting the duct back in.

On the Mohave Heater the defrost tube is 2 1/2in circle diameter. As some of you CJ guys know the CJ defroster tube in later CJ's like mine is bigger than that and a more oval shape. I have read that the 55-77 defroster duct is closer to 2 1/2in and does not look as oval as the later model CJs. So I'm going to pick this defroster duct up in hopes that I can modify it to work with the Mohave Heater and that I do not have to modify too much under there. Considering everything else I want to do I need this to go smoothly.
