    First test fit with the engine harness on. Little mess but its a perfect fit.

    And i cant be more happy with the rear drive shaft angle.

    Front steering shaft is close to headers. I have hammer down 2 tube for little extra clearance. I have to put engine as much on driver side as i can, because front drive shaft could it the pan.

    Almost finished the transmission crossmember and mount. Just need to drill the hole for the bolt. I may have gone a little bit too far on the torque arm...

    Also made a protector for transfert case. The novak adapter clock the transfert case some degree to help clearing the th350 oil pan, so the transfert case oil pan was a little too much exposed...again i may have been a little too much overkill but i had to deal with material i have in my hand.

    Transfer case protection looks good. I don't think you can over protect it.

    I didn't realize you went to coil springs in the rear, for some reason I thought you were front coil only. This Jeep is amazing (y):clap:

    Inital plan was to do only a front coil set-up. Ended up getting enough part to do the rear as well.

    So with new tire, i need to clean up my beadlock wheel. They were painted 8 years ago and had a lot of trail abuse.

    So i gring down the rust and old paint from the ring. I also have do a good clean of the inner lip so i will be able to have a good seal when the tire will be mounted.

    I was supposed to get my headers with powdercoat ceramic coating. But the shop that was suppose to do it had a major issus so he cannot do it before june.
    So i decided that i will go with high heat paint that i use to sell to stove fabrication shop.

    I gave then a good clean with a scotch bright pad and a final clean using xylene.

    Now they will dry for 4-5 days hanging in the front of my pellet furnace so they get some direct heat for i hope a not so bad cure.

    I receive the right lenght transmission cable, so i went for the final installation of the shifter and center console with the cup holder.

    I just need to finish the wiring for the starter safety switch and reverse light.

    I will be able to fab a new cover the big hole in the floor.

    I was struggling with other type of tire....but i remind me how i like the tsl bias look and how i like the off road capabilites :)

    As now i have bought a trailer to tow the jeep with long range trail so these tire wont see road so much.

    I still have the my toyo's tires for daily driving :)

    Little progess yesterday

    I had to change the water pump. There was some play on the pulley so while having an easy access decided to change it for a new one.

    152388288_269388444562799_5192787812743140927_n.jpg

    Also start assembling thing back, throttle body, alternator and kickdown cable.

    Suppose to get a package from summit racing today, so i will be able to go on final assembly this weekend. Should be able to start the engine if i dont have any installation problems.
