06JeepXKHEMI Man Iím really happy how this build has come together. Color has really grown on me. Tires, lift came out just right. Few more aesthetics and gears are next.

Best of luck trying to find a khaki soft-top.

Tank '15 JKU Willys

More room with the arrival of our second daughter two weeks ago.

And three years later, I traded the JKU for a new Touareg for the wife and brought this home today.



2005 LJ with 39k miles.

And I picked up a used soft top in great shape Monday that will go on this weekend.

Edit:

Dropped the plow yesterday.



For a 15 year old Jeep in New England, this thing is remarkably clean. Iíll be cleaning up the few spots that arenít this summer.

jeepbro's Also, anyone have pics of a black LJ with Silver flares?
I wanted to get some paint matched flares for the Rubicon, but there's a silver set for sale locally and was thinking that might look good to. I know the Rocky Mountain edition jeeps had a grey/graphite painted flares that looked sharp.

Savvy lift done, on the alignment rack now getting everything dialed in

Yeah I had a parts jeep I swapped the cats because one on my jeep did blow out and I thought it made a difference at first but it may have been placebo because it felt sluggish again a few days later.
Ended up hollowing out my old cats, both the 2 pre cats and the rear cat from my original exhaust and put it back on with not much difference.

And I shouldn't need gears being a 6spd manual with factory 4.10's and only on 285's. Its actually a better/lower ratio in all gears with that tire size than my 5spd TJ on 35's with 4.56's. I'm thinking of doing Seafoam treatment again.
I do have a lifter tick occasionally so I'm wondering if it is causing that valve to not open all the way and result in lower feeling power but I'm not sure. I don't want to tear it down and replace all that just for it do do the same thing.

Does anyone else with a 6spd LJ have an issue with your Jeep feeling slower than normal or low on power from what it should be?
Mine idles fine, seems like it has all the power it should at low RPMs but once you get on it at like 2200 or above it feels like it hits a wall powerwise and doesnt accelerate like it should. If I stomp it at that rpm it starts to go and feels like you let off half way around 2500 rpm and climbs at that slower rate from there on...
Trying to accelerate in 4th at 3k rpm I can have it at the floor for what seems like forever before it finally gets to 4k rpm and just doesn't move like I think it should, its almost hard to accelerate to merge on the highway and thats trying to run it as high as I can in each gear.

Almost feels like my 02 TJ 5spd on 4.56's, 35's, heavy armor and bumpers and hard top accelerates better than my stock 6spd LJ Rubi on 285s...

mukluk @jeepbro's
What you describe sounds like you may have a problem with your catalytic converters getting clogged. An easy way to verify if this is the case is to connect a vacuum gauge to an intake manifold port and see what it does as you hold the engine at higher revs -- a normal engine will exhibit increased vacuum from idle to high revs, while one with an exhaust obstruction will show the manifold vacuum lower at high revs than at idle.
