The guys at adrenaline off road have been busy. The relocation and installation of theGenright tank required more work than originally thought.



Modified the trany skid





Modified the exhaust





Looks like the track bar will just clear!





The view drone down under







The front seat bracket will be installed today and the jeepwill be on the road tonight.

Hope you have a place out in the country outside of London. That beast will never fit down the roads in the city.

Jeep is back on the road but still need to wheel it again to make sure allof the electrical issues have been resolved from after the dash was taken apartfor the cage build.
  • All airbag and seat sensors resolved
  • All wiring cleaned up
  • waiting for mount
  • room for custom center console.
  • now i have locations for flashlights :-)

Truly amazing what you’ve done to your Jeep already and the impressive list of things to come.

Thanks! I can finally say the cage is done! The rear center consol is drawn up in cab and it is being sent to be cut. It will match the tuffy, have integrated cup holders, holding tray, sub, USB and aux power.

You seem to have an unlimited amount of money. I would say let's find a time to go wheeling since I'm also in MD but my rig would look like an inadequate piece of white sheet metal next to your rig. Awesome build.

Keep Calm, Chive On
