    Our Jeeps have some stuff, see sig for build threads :)
    So the build is NOT complete, but it's driving :)

    Still to complete:
    • Align (later today)
    • Had an issue with the front drive shaft so we're waiting on it.
    • Fenders are mostly done but still a couple of brackets and some paint.
    • Install ARB air and plumb lockers
    • Choose an inner fender
    • Choose a rear bumper or delete
    • Install heated seats
    • Install Bartact seat covers
    • Install remote start
    • Install Stainless brake lines
    • Install Apollointech switch pod
    • Install rear license holder
    • Install tail lights
    • Switch drag link end to under mount (not doing high steer)
    • Dual batteries
    Once all that is done I'll start shopping for a trailer to build.



    Adam's drive shafts (still waiting on a yoke for the front)

    It reminds me of one of those old "stomper" toys back in the 80's

    So the wife was approaching an intersection, went to stop and the pedal went to the floor :eek: Fortunately she got it stopped in time.

    The passenger rear end link made contact with the hard brake line and it puked its fluid. So a new brake line was put on.

    She also had a coolant leak at the passenger exhaust flange, the dealer determined it was a defect and replaced the head under warranty.

    Unfortunately he was in the shop for our annual Crawl4Christ ride, so we took Brutus. Here's some pics of the chaos :)

    I think that’s a great idea. I’m thinking my 9 year old needs to learn how to drive the jeep with lots of trees around :thumbsup:
