I haven't checked this thread out for a while. After looking at the last 20 pages or so, I've come to this conclusion...

This Jeep project is so sexy, it definitely qualifies as "Jeep Porn."

snow plow? nah, go with a snow blower

V8 Powered Snow Plow

I'm sure with your skill you could put this together

Thanks. I'm looking forward to getting the speaker boxes made. Once that is done I can easily finish off the interior.

My seal definitely doesn't stick out from the dash. It is flush at the dash and windshield frame. My problem was that the dash side wasn't under a lot of compression in the center section near the defroster ports. That's why I had used a little more silicone than I would have liked to.

Thanks Copper. Seeing the detail you had put into yours when I was just starting mine, that is a great compliment.

I have seen that before, pretty cool. I could see making one of those if you could really justify it with the annual snowfall or just needing to clear massive amounts of square footage. Last week was the biggest snow in this area in the last 50 years. The 28" John Deere ate through it fast enough. Thankfully I usually only need to pull it out less than ten times a year.

Hey Mike,

Awesome build! As many others have stated before me, thanks for all the detailed posts. It makes me want to do things to my 5.

^^^ Thanks, Tractor Boy.

For the guys who lost sleep over my choice of amplifier for my subs, hopefully I can help you all rest a little easier. I just picked up this nice little upgrade off Craigslist. This will be replacing that new Pyle amp I had bought. This gives me two Alpine amps for my six speakers. I am going to stay on the lookout for another V-Power Alpine similar to this one, mainly for aesthetics. I've been impressed with Alpine, and how well even their small amps perform, ever since my high school days.

Hey Mike,

I spent almost all day yesterday (bad weather day) going through the thread. I just couldn't stop. I saw some amazing work quality, learned a great deal and became inspired by your dedication. I was glad to see that you have a Ground Pounder bumper. Eddie built me front and rear for my TJ a couple of years back. I still have the TJ. The work quality is amazing and he seems to be a great guy. I may have to get him to build me a rear for my CJ.

I just thought I would weigh in on wheel selection. I know it might be a while before you decide but, I like some type of aluminum 5 spoke in some form or fashion. I'm an old school car guy and I don't think black would showcase your concept of a "Hot Rod Ford as well as an aluminum wheel would. (See White Mustang in your thread)

On another note, all this talk about stereos is a little over my head. I remember having a 4 track stereo in my '68 Firebird back in '70. My CJ5 has no radio at all. I like the sound of the motor and wind going by. Not to mention that all that loud music of my youth probably ruined my hearing anyway. LOL.

Here's to Spring Weather!

James

It'll be great pulling up to one of those idiots with the thumping stereo that rattles everything in the car... then you blast them with your rig's tunes and embarrass them. I'm looking forward to that with my CJ.

You need to be careful with that stereo. You are't going to be able to hear that awesom motor. Looking great
