Thanks! It should be great fun to work on.


Oh almost forgot to mention, I was also able to snag one of these recently order-able carbon fiber hoods:

I like that indigo blue brown interior but I don't like the new black with all of the crystal like haze and glitter, plus you can't get indigo in a Summit. So I don't mind waiting for the Deep Auburn, with brown interior; it's in D1 status. I still have a an 06 Grand Cherokee 5.7 that I'm keeping; it's never been to the dealer for anything other than oil change. I've been looking for two months so what's another month.

Re: Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

I just did the plates on my diesel summit. The stock items aren't really "cardboard". I had to trim one (transmission) to fit after the metal plates were installed and it's quite durable, like a felt covered thick plastic. Obviously I would have liked a metal piece there, but I believe they did it that way as the engine oil pan and transfer case skid plates hang down a good four inches below the transmission oil pan. So the likelihood of it getting damaged is pretty remote.

Even though I installed the fuel tank skid plates first , I still had to remove the fuel line skid plate once or twice as there was a certain overlap order with the rest of the plates, including the stock transmission cover. So it's like install both fuel tanks, then the stock transmission cover or just leave it on all together, then put on the engine oil pan cover then the transfer case cover is last. I can confirm the metal vibration damper weight on the transfer case plate needs to come off on the diesel.

Re: Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

Wow, started the MOPAR rock rail install today and talk about a lengthy process lol. Gave up for the night. My favorite part is removing all the foam in the frame rail channels.

Also installed the Bluespark and have it set at I believe stock D-6. Wow, nice power boost. Was spinning all four wheels in a turn in the wet. Noticeably peppier.

Also installed the V-LED's Triton LED brake/turn signals. Didn't take any pictures of that as someone already did a write up. Let's just say it's also a time consuming install as you have to put some custom wiring in to hide the control module. I also did it proper soldering everything and heat/shrink wrapping + silicone.
