Jess and I tried to start it the other night, but it would turn over. I spent some time with it today, and the fuel pump is now priming and the starter is turning the motor. I didn't crank it for long, just enough to see if it'd turn over.

It started and ran for about 5 seconds. I didn't run it longer because it needs exhaust and the lower rad hose, plus steering plumbed.

it moved 2 feet forward and 2 feet back.

steering is plumbed, radiator plumbed, brakes done except one hard line, and electric fan is wired to the ECM.

any idea what fitting it is on the TJ master cylinder?

Thanks for the help Jess.

picked a couple up from stubs, thanks anyway.

I drove it around the yard today, everything worked pretty well. Next up is getting exhaust. Driving around the yard with open headers is only so much fun.

yes, but be sure to lift your feet out of the foot well before letting go of the throttle.

a few progress pics.

one pic shows the trans cooler I'm using to cool my steering. Jess built the mount to put it behind the rad fan, but in a place that we won't need to take it out unless I'm changing the fan or motor. After Mike's cooler broke the zip tie tabs on a rollover, I also didn't want to use those.

next pic is the cleaned up shock, steering plumbing and you can see a little of the brake line. it's run down the upper control arm, and t's off and runs on top of the axles to 18" flex lines.

and also a pic of the jeep in the garage sitting at 20" belly and 5.5" up travel up front.

still a bit loud and firey in the cabin for a trail ride just yet. Does run very nicely though. Not bad after what we did to those poor harnesses. Proof will be when it runs an entire trailride with out an electrical fire...

Exhaust was put on Monday. I plugged in the front O2s tonight and took it for a spin after doing a quick nut and bolt to make sure it didn't fall apart going down the road.

The computer is not 100% happy, and it keeps wanting to stall when you rev it with no load, but it seems to drive fine, or as good as it gets when running hand throttle.

The exhaust is good, not loud, but will give some noise if you get on it. I can say that this thing is one helluva lot faster than with the 4.0. Especially in mid to high rpms. Should be tons of fun at the dunes.

here's how it looked for the parade lap around the block. oh yeah, death wobble is gone up to about 50mph.

God damn, that thing sure is ugly. What type of offroading vehicle is it? It looks kind of rusty and beat up underneath. Did you fix it up yourself? Does it peel out? Can it flex on a parking block? Did you get stuck in the grass in that picture? A real offroading truck usually has dirt on it, and yours seems pretty clean. Is it brand new? I really want a brand new vehicle, but I don't think that I will let it rust like that. You must not really care how you maintain your cars. I would have gave the dealer hell about rusty spots on the frame.


And its missing doors.

How many cfm does your heart pump have? my compressor has a hard time keeping up with my sandblasting pot, maybe i could borrow it so that I clean up the POS and get it up to your high standards.

John, just and FYI. We got stopped in Canada last year & although it sounds silly, they require inner fender wells up front. Seems they don't allow water & mud to be splashed on an engine.

Yes, you will have fun at the dunes. :thumb:

I still think we should have done the glove box door instead of all the steering and what not the other night, that would have been way cooler.

More stuff tackled last night. Jess tightened up the oil pressure sensor and that seemed to be the source of my engine oil leak. Firewall is pretty much patched up, definitely good enough to take it for a spin around the block for the first time using the gas pedal.

ECM and battery are mounted again. Still have a handful of small stuff to do, but getting pretty close to being ready to run a trail.

dash a bit more in. I have a cj glovebox and jesus bar that I want to mount, as well as the cb, heater, and in cab winch controls. This will do. the pass side needs one more coat of spray bomb.

I've cleaned up the harness both under dash and under hood, and buttoned up a ton of little stuff. It's getting close.
