Sounds and looks awesome! I thought your phone was starting to do what mine does (muffle the speakerphone mic).

Is that an oiled air filter? I mounted my MAF sensor right behind my K&N just like that and it started throwing a P0101 "Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit Range/ Performance" code in the ECM after a 100 miles or so. After some research I found out it might have been traces of oil from the filter contaminating the MAF sensors. As much of a pain as it was to move it I moved it right in front of the throttle body and it doesn't throw any more codes. Just a heads up.

Cool, Thanks for the info. We will see what it does after I take care of the rest of the codes. You can see The MIL Light on in the video. Im sure it's due to no O2's and only 1 knock sensor hooked up.

I picked up some O2 bungs on the way home today. I got the two down tubes cut and fitted and ready to tack. my welder is at a friends house right now as we went halfs on it. I need his help to hold pipes in place while I tack, and that looks like it won't happen till later this week. In the mean time, Im going to look at getting a OBD2 Scanner to read and clear any codes I may come across.
Does anyone have any recommendations on a good scanner?

Open headers sound good from here but I'd hate to drive it much that way. I'd make it quiet, make a sleeper outta that baby.

You going to swap out both axles or just the rear? Stock aint gonna last long I'm afraid.

I bought the cheap pocket scanner from the parts store and borrowed the $250 version. The only difference is that the expensive one tells you what the code means where as the pocket scanner you have to look it up in the book that comes with it. I don't even look in the book. I just google it which is what you're going to do anyways because it'll help you locate the problem. I was hoping with the expensive one I'd at least be able to change the fan on/off temps, VSS signal, and other stuff, but it didn't. One of the reasons it was expensive is because it was for all the manufacturers. Hope that helps.

I did forget! Forgive me....lets just blame my age and the lack of a vacation.

Sorry for the wrong link. Here's the place I got the yoke http://stores.ebay.com/Quick-Performance-Inc and here's another place that has a pretty good supply of Ford stuff http://broncograveyard.com/?google=bronco

I got both down tubes done last night, with O2's installed. Ordered a couple Flowmaster Supper 44 Mufflers.

Mufflers came as well as some pipes. I got it all cut and fit up under the jeep tonight. This weekend I plan to fine tune it and weld it up. I just need to find some hangers locally to finish it off. I did however, start it up again while all the pipes where just fitted and hanging. It sounded pretty sweet with the dual Flowmaster Super 44's.
then the neighbor came over and said that sounds really good, But his kid is going to bed so don't start it again.

Picked up the Exhaust hangers today. One thing I can see that is going to be a problem, Is that the E-brake Cable brackets are not going to work with my Exhaust layout. I Guess I will cut them off and figure out a E-bake later if I feel the need for one. Maybe just a line lock.

Exhaust is all done. It sounds really aggressive like my old Z28 Donzi with twin 350's.
I ran into a little snag though with the power steering pump. the pump seemed like it was sitting a little cockeyed in the bracket making the pulley not quite line up with the others. It was off one rib on the belt, So it ripped one rib off the belt. I have removed the bracket to clearance it a little more to see if this helps. As there was some initial clearanceing needed due to the moded pump. We will see.
I seen a pretty sweet looking CJ7 today on the road, And I have to admit I was a little envious. I thought ( Man that looks like fun to drive). I'm so close, Yet so far.
I just need-
Transfer case
drive shafts
And (Jim's rear axle)
and I could be that guy on the road looking and feeling cool too.
