    I can't wait to see this one on the road. Similar to the cj66, but better because it's built, and doesn't have silly modern Mopar parts.

    if the color match isnt as good as you like,a urethane paint can be applied over just flashed raptor and will chemically bond to the liner viola matched paint. the only color ive had trouble with is white,turns bluish greenish when tinting liner...personally i like spi brand liner.

    I will get some updates up. Took the summer of for an extended rv trip, left May 27 spent 102 days on the trip. Was back for 2 weeks and went to Hawaii for 2 weeks. Got home for the fall Oct 4th. I have been spending time in the shop working at doing thing needed on the chassis, brakes, brake lines, air lines for lockers. Pictures will follow.

    Lets see if I can remember how to get the pictures up here.....
    Start of rear brake lines
    P1040704.jpgresized.jpg

    Lines out the brakes.
    P1040705.jpgresized.jpg

    Fuel lines, filter, regulator, and brake lines headed forward.
    P1090125.jpgresized.jpg

    Up the frame rail to the front.
    P1090124.jpgresized.jpg

    Start of air line for the ARB locker. Using AN3 braided, plastic coated line for Earls/Holley and hard line instead of the ARB line.
    P1090127.jpgresized.jpg

    Going from flex to hard line on the air line.
    P1090131.jpgresized.jpg

    And up the frame to near the front shock/spring tower. Planning on putting the compressor on the right front fender.
    P1090132.jpgresized.jpg

    Front brake flex line installed. You can see the 2 holes where the original bracket was installed, I learned the hard what that if you get crossed up and turn the wheel the right way you can tear the hard line out of the bracket. So I move them forward up to the tower to keep them out of harms way (Learned this on my LJ up on Ophir Pass)
    P1090128.jpgresized.jpg

    Other side, moved forward as well.
    P1090129.jpgresized.jpg

    The front brake line and ARB air line installed and tied down. You can see the fitting for ARB lines by the tower on the passenger side, will switch back to braid AN3 line to run to the compressor.

    Looks great! Thanks for the tip on the front brakeline bracket. I just bought an 06 LJ and will move my bracket out of the way.
