^^^ If I think of a custom emblem at least I'll know who to ask.

I got a coat of POR on the hangers Jim. I actually just put on the second coat. I will be hitting them with the Blackcote in an hour or so. I was using up the last of a quart jar and must of had some dirt in the lid groove or something. There are small specs of dirt throughout the paint that I'm hoping the Blackcote will help cover up. Either way they are looking good.

I can't wait to get my shackle hangers from Jim and get my frame coated with the Chassis Saver and get it into a roller. I wish my build was going as fast as yours, you do great work btw.

The motor you got wasn't the motor that was pictured? That sucks, where did you get the motor from? You can get the cobra intake badge and cobra valve covers. The good thing about the Explorer heads is that they are more efficient than the regular 5.0L heads. They got the GT40-P heads.

Going as fast as mine? In February it will be three years since I started on this. I'm just at the good part where it all goes together pretty quickly.

Not sure what you mean about the engine. I bought and installed that in 1996. I put on the GT40 heads and Cobra roller rockers in 1997. During this rebuild is when I added the Cobra upper and lower intakes with the valve covers. Every picture in here is of my engine.










Forged pistons.


Stage 8 locking header bolts.






I also just got my air cleaner box mounts made up. Need to get some paint on those. Most of the engine compartment detail work is done.

I must have got your thread confused with someone elses, haven't been sleeping to good the last couple days. Your motor is beautiful. Bet it's a beast too! I know how fast my Mustang is I couldn't imagine that much power in my jeep lol. I have a real heavy right foot and would probably hurt myself.

You have the hangers looking great Mike. I sure can't tell that you brushed the POR on, you're gettin pretty good at this.

Looking forward to seeing the install and even more updates!!

I suffer from boughts of insomnia so I know what you mean. It may have been me you were thinking about. I got a bait-and-switch engine from a Mustang wrecker last spring. The pic on eBay looked so great. I haven't taken it apart yet and may just stick it in the new rig as is.

^^^ After I had posted that and re-read what he said, I figured he was getting the two of us mixed up.

The spring hangers are painted. We'll see how the weekend goes to see if I'll get the chance to put a couple of them on.

Install of the Alpine should go pretty easy but I will detail as much as I can for you.
Thank you very much! Greatly appreciated

Also.. I am kind of new to Jeeps since I recently got mine, what are these hangers used for?

They are the main attachment point of the suspension to the frame. These are the spring shackle hangers that bolt to the bottom of the frame at all four corners. The top of the shackle rides on a bushing in the center hole. Of course the other end of the shackle is attached to the end of the leaf spring. Here is a picture of a stock one, they are known to break or have the loop "unwind" allowing slop in the bushing.


Here is a picture of a broken one courtesy of CopperCJ7.


Here is the Slickrock Fab design. Better than stock but they want $115 just for the front pair.


You can get a front pair for $70 from Jim or all four for only $145. Not only do you get an awesome set of hangers you're also supporting a JF Vendor and all around nice guy.

Coiz - Yup supporting Jim is a good thing. That and his hangers are heavy duty compared to the stock ones, they can take far more wheeling abuse then stock for sure. This is a key part that you really don't want to skimp on.. then again you have been at this for 3 years, might as well get the best of the best. Thanks for explaining.
