The new longblock is in, sitting on the mounts, but thats it. Just dropped off the core. Heading out to garage now to clean up/organize and then start putting stuff back on it. Timing cover/harmonic balancer first, then windage tray, oil pump and pan. Then probably valve cover and fuel rail and the rest of the intake stuff, then water pump and accessories, then I imagine I'll put the tranny in. Will have to figure the best time to go about installing and setting up the OPDA...might actually do that first while I can view the timing marks and rockers.

Gonna be a long day
Slow doesn't even begin to describe the way this man works....

Then you should have bought a larger lift? I mean why buy it, then complain that it's too small? i've had mine on for 3.5 years or so and run 33s on it very well with a 1.25" BL.

It was dark last night when I posted, here's a shot with the ecco's



It not leaning, the ground is not side to side level

I miss the black look, but these ride so much smoother

Realized I left the back widow up since last Friday. Thank goodness for bedliner and drain plugs!

Rofl I was thinking this reassembly really should be like a 4 hour job, but right now I'm weighing the pro/cons of just buying a new valve cover vs getting this one clean. Lol. I was able to scrape the sludge off the timing cover with a blade..there is EASILY 1/16" thick of sludge inside the valve cover.

Mounted up my Rokmen bumper. I still need to drill some holes for the last 4 bolts and install the frame tie ins, but she's on there. Crosby shackles should be on my doorstep by the end of the week.

It is at least 6" in the area of the posts. I planned ahead when I built the shop.

Awesome. I was out in my driveway working on my Jeep in chest waders because of all the melting snow. I'd like to have a lift but I'd settle for a garage right now.

It really brought all the mods together and the exhaust is a little throatier.

I am making an appointment soon for a dyno and will report back! I have always wanted to install the roller rockers and it was more of icing onthe cake rather than necessity.

As far as operating temps and friction, it is hard to tell right now with it being so cold. Drivetrain is much, much quieter. No more ticks or stumbles. Idle dropped slightly too.

Just don't forget to get around to doing it! I meant to do the same thing and forgot. Then I was winching a stump in my back yard. It was a big stump and kept dragging the jeep so I anchored the rear bumper to a big cedar tree and doubled up the line on the winch. well I nearly ripped the bumper off and bent up the mounting points. Its bolted in all the holes now and I added rokman frame tie ins for good measure. The jeep will rip in half before my bumper comes off now!
