    Great project, nice work and pictures. Keep up the good work, the Jeep looks awsome on the trailer and I hope to see this rig in action on Greens Mountain this summer.
    Cheers. Rusty Iron

    Looking awesome , its coming along very nicely.

    BTW, your gonna need a bigger tow rig, let me humbly tell you the beast and trailer weigh more than you think.

    P.S. can you post a pic of how you reinforced the fenders on the trailer. I gotta do that to mine.

    Bring on the good weather

    I have not updated this thread in a while. This last summer I have been doing a lot on the Crawler. I had to do a few revisions due to a change in plans and other circumstances.

    1) Cracked engine block (I had run engine in summer with water for burn in with no rad, this left a small amount of water in the block and I never thought anything about it. Due to lack of coolant in the water in the block pockets it froze and cracked the block) Lesson learned!

    2) I am looking at rock racing so due to specific rules I had to change the fuel cell. I now have a 12Gal RCI instead of the 12gal aluminum one.

    3) Bought 4 king coilovers which will be installed this winter as well as 3linking the front dana 60.

    New engine is completed and running “with rad and coolant!! In it”. Fuel Cell is all mounted in and plumbed. Disc brake conversion on front to ˝ ton calipers to reduce weight and allow me to run my 15” rims without major grinding. TMR cut the new brackets for it and they work perfectly. It also allows me to run all 4 of the same calipers and rotors. All Brearings and kingpins are completely rebuilt and brand new.

    Whats next? Removal of cowl and firewall. I decided to start new and use a light metal vs. using sheet metal as I will have to do the entire floor anyway. I am converting the hood and grill to a CJ one from YJ as well. The king coils will be my next major part to install with the front 3link to the dana 60.
