That would be the regulator for my air bottle. You are correct about being strapped down.

What is this? 50 questions. I feel like I just got home from a date and my Mom wants to know all about it ,hahaha :-)

Chris, the seats were in the Jeep when I bought it. They are Leon Rosser. I believe he was a big Jeep/Eagle dealer back in the day.

A couple random pictures. I saw this 1/2 pickup on the road the other day, what's up with the dual stacks in the bed, diesel wannabe I guess.

Changed some tires around today. I took off the 35/12:50/15 tires from these 6x5.5 rims.

On to these rims 5x5.5" for use at Silver Lake Sand dunes at the end of September.

They are going on this Jeep with only a 3" spring lift. I imagine the rear wheel wells will need cut, and the flares removed.

There are 33" super Swamper's on it now. I counting on the used All Terrains are closer to 33.5"/34, while I know the SS's are a little over 33".
The reason for this is I feel like radials will be better in the sand. And the TA's are a "C" rated tire, vs a D rated on the Swampers. So I should get a little more flex out of the tire at the same 12 psi.

Also, I had some problems last year at the dunes on long hill climbs. The engine was cutting out near the top , I believe I've found out why, I think I was running out of fuel, ( float bowl not being big enough on the q-Jet carb.)
I read this here--> http://bosshosshelp.com/Menu%20Items.../quadrajet.htm

As best memory serves, the biggest climb took about 20 seconds. This was also at 4000 + or - rpm.

So, you might ask, why not just back out of the skinny pedal. Here's why. Loss of momentum and wheel speed. So when you get back into the gas ( plenty of power with the 360) the tires start spinning, and you slow down and dig a hole. This also means backing down a 300' hill and trying again. It took me 4 attempts on the first try. I made it within 15' of the top. One fix for the fuel issue is go FI. The other as I see it is a Holley 670 TA. I don't have the time for FI, so I'm going with the 670. After I bent the front axle I rode in a CJ with a built SBC 383. He was running a 670, and didnt have a problem.
As far as the Quadrajet I still feel its the best all around carb. Except for sand dunes.

I also found there is a learning curve on sand dunes. The Q-trac jeep I used has a 360, 4.10 gears and bias ply 33" LTB Super Swampers. I really didnt think I would have any issues on the dunes, I was wrong. My cousin with a stock '98 TJ with a 4.0L and a 5 speed with basically street tires, and not even a limited slip diff in the rear did better than me.
I am a little concerned with 35's on the Dana 30, like I said, I will be interesting.

It's not the Q-trac, it works fine. It's the fuel and bias tire, on the sand hills. I never tried it in normal drive, this Jeep also has welded rear spiders, and a front lock rite .
