London - and a new (bigger I assume) engine - Did you check the price of gas over there!
(On the other hand based on your build that may not be a concern!)

I lived there before. I'm planning on adding the camera up front as I did before but I'm going to wait till the front bumper mod is done first. I almost crushed my bosses new vett! You should have seen his face.

Yes you are correct! I will be swapping in a hemi. Gas is expensive but this isn't going to be my daily and I'm not to concerned with that, what I'm concerned with is the street width. Most of the European streets are very narrow.

Havenít posted updates in awhile. Adrenaline Off Road has been busy getting my JK ready for Jeepers Jamboree next month. The custom cage should be done next week.

Smittybuilt front bumper mod to mount Warn Powerplant is now complete. the modification include winch plate with license plate holder, air chuck, and D2 light tabs


Added new Viking Synthetic winch lines


Closer look at how the License plate bracket and the light tab are integrated. The bolts holding the plate is temporary.


Didn't have time to make the custom rear bumper and shave the tailgate so I got the BFH rear bumper for now.


all cut ready for gussets


Gusset welded and painted

Iíve had the AEV hood for few months so that also got installed.





Also added the Rampage hood latch. Passenger side is very tight

gas is 1.39 sterling pounds per liter down the street. the daily conversion rate is about 1.65 dollars per pound. so its about 11-12 dollars a gallon. i filled up my 13 gallon mazda the other day and it was almost 100 dollars. ridiculous. If I was working on the british economy and got paid in sterling instead of dollars it would still work itself out to the equivalent of paying about 6 dollars a gallon. no wonder everyone drives small little cars here.
