Re: My Jeep thus far..

Also just remembered that I also changed my PCV valve and front sway bar bushings. The PCV change did help smooth out the engine and netted me a 0.5 honest mpg back that I was missing. The sway bar bushings took care of the swooshing squeak I was getting from the front.

Re: My Jeep thus far..

Alright, so I have a few parts coming my way and I am already looking for the next. I have a few ideas but wanted to get some input on which one I should go after next.

The next few modifications I am looking at doing are:

-Line-x Rola rack
-lights for my Rola rack
-4xguard front guard
-more soundproofing (already have doors done, finish rest of interior)
-Kicker upgraded amp (already have speakers)
-weathertech rear cargo mat
-magnaflow muffler with electric cutout

I don't really need one more than the other right now. I just want to keep myself busy or else I may start using the credit card a little too much. Any thoughts?

Re: My Jeep thus far..

I like it alot. I think I might do the switch panel. Looks very cool! Looks liked you did a 3 gang and 2 single gangs?

Thanks! Yes I used the three gang and added two singles. I can get some more pictures eventually on how I got them in there but it was pretty easy. I love those switches, reliable and they last forever.

Alright sweet! I would love to see how you did it.

Yes. These are just some switches I had left over from another project. I can swap out the stickers on the switch for something else. None of the switches are hooked up to anything yet. I just had all the stuff lying around so I thought I would make good use of it.

I will have front lights on the bumper some how, roof mounted lights on my Rola, and some reverse lights also on the Rola. The other two will be for future projects.

Re: My Jeep thus far..

Got a few more parts in and installed some others...

I got the Billet Tech Catch Can in. Very nice work! Looks awesome.





Here are some night shots after I got it installed. I bolted it to the aFe intake shroud just with a bolt and some washers. I was able to use the hoses that they provided, they had just enough length in them to reach while still being able to use the engine cover.









I also got to install the 4xguard diff guard when I changed my rear diff fluid. It was kind of a pain to get everything lined up when reinstalling the cover with the guard while the RTV was wet but it all worked out. Awful pictures, I know, but it's all I have.



I also got in my Outerwears pre-filter. I went with a crazy lime green just to be different. If anyone is interested in which part number to get, it's the 20-1687. Less than $30 shipped. I'll install it soon, pretty simple to do obviously.

I'm definitely going to make the Rola my next project. I want to work on my welding skills so I'm going to weld it together (i'm sick of rusty water spray all over my roof). I'm then going to fab a steel fairing with mount tabs for my LED light bar that's up there. Its mounted without a fairing right now and there is just enought gap to create a pretty annoying whistle with the sunroof open. Once everything is all welded together I'll spray it black with Raptor Liner.
