Mine runs great (when it's together!). But I have some reapirs to make to it, and I don't want two Jeeps on the floor of my shop. So it is waiting until I finish his before I start the 7. Then there's the 3B... don't know which one I want to do first. I want to have the 3B done, most of all, but then I will be another 2 or 3 years waiting on mine!

Fixed blinker problem! It was the leads on the relay. They weren't making good contact with the fuse block. So I put some dielectric grease on them and bent them out a bit. Bingo!

Also played with lightening up the throttle by changing the throttle return spring. Too light! Now to find an in between spring.

And also figured out that I'm leaking oil from my pump shaft patch AND my oil pressure gauge line. Will fix soon.

Here's a 0 to 60 video I shot last night (0 to 60 in 18 seconds ). I put this in my tuning thread, but why not here too right?

Someday this rig will be SOA on stock height yj springs with 33s (at the minimum) and ARB lockers, but for right now, she's capable enough to have fun in.

All the guys doing the OME YJ lifts have me thinking about those, but I want the clearance the SOA gives you. Plus I have no qualms adding a ladder bar and double cardan shaft.

That's cause the iPhone was on the steering wheel. It's actually quite smooth in real life

Dada,

I just got caught up on about 10 pages of this thread.

You've been a busy boy, my friend. When you finish up with all your leaks, can you swing up to Colorado and fix mine?

I'm diggin' your on-board air....

Haha, yeah I'm a pro at leaks these days. I'm super OCD about leaks actually, they make my stomache churn.

That on-board air is awesome! I highly recommend it!

On my engine thread, someone mentioned doing a PTO driven compressor off of my new T19 transmission.

I thought that was an interesting idea, but that little ARB unit, that you have, looks pretty sweet....

And its half the price of a PTO, not to mention the cost of integrating a compressor!

Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of PTO gadgets! I love this old stuff! but $$$ is what the old stuff takes.

I dislike my mounting spot for the compressor, but it'll work for now. Eventually I'd like to have it level and possibly attached to the firewall with rubber standoffs.

Dada,

I'll be watching for your final solution on compressor locations.

My future plans include modifying/upgrading my axles to one-piece. I'm also strongly considering the ARB lockers, so onboard air is almost a given.
