Nice. Surprisingly I hadn't given any thought to installing an inverter. Yours has got me thinking about it, which is good because I could run its wiring while I'm doing the rest of the truck. Thanks for the idea.

No problem, I love the fact that anything I have can be run from my truck if neccesary. The nice thing about this inverter will be the batttery charger, not only for myself, but for anyone that has a dead battery within reach of a power cord.....

I got the 60 lb springs in, picked up a new oil pan,




and got another Jeep I search craigslist everyday for Jeep parts and I came across the perfect donor rig for my CJ. As much as I dont need another project right now it was to good of a deal to pass up. Now I am on the fast track to get Alice done so I can put the CJ together. That and the cold has been setting in the past few weeks....

Thanks, you know you didn't have to share that. Jeez, now I have something else to make.

Seriously, that is DIY at its finest. It has definitely been added to the list of to-do's.

Also, nice Jeep purchase. Someday I'd like to get a little brother for my truck. Something that would be just for play.

Resbum

PS- Nice valve spring tool, also.

Ha sorry Resbum, I wish I had found it sooner, then youcould have incorporated it before you installed the exhaust on yours. It allcame from my homemade valve spring compressor, a friend of mine was ragging on me fornot buying the $40 tool and jokingly said “I bet your going to make an exhaustbrake yourself too” the rest is history…and yes, my CJ is for play, truck is for work, that way I never have to worryabout something being able to pull me out…

I got the valve covers all set, installed the starter, new lift pump, oil pan, rear Ubolts and a lot of painting. Now I need the cab back....



Next on the list:

Brake lines, exhaust, shocks, air bags, fuel tank from donor truck, electrical test station. I know that is only the tip of the iceberg but its a start...

One step forward, two stumbles back I started to prep the intercooler today and under the paint there was about an 1/8 of aluminum dust and under the dust there are lots of pin holes everywhere. So I am now on the hunt for an intercooler that doesnt cost $1000.....

Not to much to report I did get another intercooler from a second gen Cummins. I am removing a few rows from it to make it easier to instal in the front clip. I am also doing the inlet and outlet relocation like resbum did with his. In order to do all of this I have spent a lot of time fixing our tig welder. The cab has not had any work done to it due to an incredible amount of overtime. Happy new year everyone.

I decided to get the cab back to my shop so it can go under the knife for all of the alterations I need to make. The original plan was to do this after it had seen a coat of primer to protect all that bare metal, however the cold weather and overtime have not been on my side this winter to see that happen.







It has been awhile since any of us have welded aluminum, but they will definatly hold.



I made a mount for the hydro boost that uses the stock lever and mounting points- here it is mocked up



The next step is to weld up all the pieces for the twin stick and chop the floor pan a bit. Then I will see what can be done with the heater core vs. the down pipe. Man its great to be working on this again, I really did miss it.

I got the twin stick fabricated, and I am currently on a mission to get the heater box mounted in the firewall without hitting the down pipe from the turbo.... if I succeed I will show how it was done. If not, we will never speak of this again while I buy an under dash unit.....

Ive always found craftsman wrenches are good to cut apart... heck, Ive hacked at them to make them fit in tight spots and gotten them to replace it for me, lol.
