I have that cooler kit on my JK. I just changed (after 6 years) the hoses to aeroquip with an fittings. I got rid of all the original rubber but kept the hard lines using a combo of an and compression fittings.

The original hose was hard as a rock and leaking. I don't know if that was an early failure or not but I was a little surprised.

If those are the same coolers I have they are 10mm not 3/8". I had to do some sanding to make it work because 10mm compression fittings are hard to get.

Thanks for the info. I was curious of an alternative for the rubber lines but figured that's something I could change down the road if I need to!

well....got the jeep back from Those Guys Rods and Customs on saturday. Lets just say pat killed it as expected!! I had him take care of the ORI mounts, build a track bar and mounts, draglink, and the best part a custom swing out rear tire carrier. The carrier was based off of another jeep that used yo be on the board (lezbone) so to some of you it will look slightly familiar but i had pat tweek it a little and add a bracket for the high lift jack to mount as well. All in all couldnt be happier with how it turned out and would tell anyone that if u need something done on your jeep, by far pat is the best!! Enough gab....heres some pics

Well it's been a few months since I last updated and I have very little new to report. I was on vacation the whole month of July and been crazy busy with work. The only real update is I got a hard top for the Jeep that I pulled off another TJ I bought, was given an old Warn 8274 that needs rebuilt but works great so gonna start on that soon, also picked up an ARB dual compressor. While swapping tops I finally had the chance to put my Jeep side by side with a bone stock TJ, and I'm glad to see it's only 1.5 inches taller than stock on 37's!! Couldn't ask for anything more..

Image

On that note I was talking to a buddy over a few beers and decided this neverending project needs a name. I'm not creative so wondering if any of you have some interesting ideas for it??

So.....it's time to get this project moving again! Parts have been ordered and I'm starting to make progress.....

First parts to arrive were front and rear 35 spline ARB's, ten factory chromolly rear shafts, and a warn zeon 10s.

Image

Pulled the front savvy bumper as the fairlead need to be trimmed for the winch to fit, also installed a factor 55 fairlead.

Image

Image

Image

A buddy of mine gave me a Joe's wheel he had laying around so this is going in once the adapter shows up, crazy light and really like the look and feel of it...

Next was to do what I have been dreading, pull the rear bumper, drop the tank, replace fuel pump, hook up all the plumbing and electrical, then remount bumper and finish drilling all the holes for the bumper support in the frame....

Image

After that i wanted to get it running as it hasn't ran in 3 yrs!! So I spent several hours nut and bolt checking all the fittings for the coolers and anything/everything I have touched that's motor related. Also everything needed fluid, so t-case, trans, oil change, power steering, coolant. Put fuel in it, pulled the coil wire, cranked it till I had oil pressure, then reconnected coil and it fired right up. I remembered i was having problems with the tps so I need to get a new one but hearing it run definitely made my day!!!

Good to see you moving forward on it, would be a shame to part it at this stage. Projects are tough but your rig is going to turn out awesome, keep it up :smokin:

Thanks man, I definitely considered getting rid of it but after much consideration I figured I have WAY to much time and money in it to stop now!! I know it will be all worth it when it's done it's just drawn out longer than I wanted......

So for over a year now I have been trying to figure out how I wanted to do my fuel filler. Because of how high I have the rear trimmed up and since I have intentions of putting flares on it wouldn't of left me much room for the traditional filler bezel so I came up with something a little different....not sure I love it but it came out decent and is easily accessible and retained the look I wanted for the outside

Next I wanted to do some kind of running/ auxiliary light so I got a pair of rigid dually flush mounted Amber spot lights to mount on the grill under the headlights.

I like that light idea. I might do that now that my headlights have built in signals I can use.

Still been picking away at it, axles were pulled for new gears and lockers to be installed. I am going with Yukon 5.38's, 35 spline ARB, and Yukon diff covers...

Image

Rear axle is all ready to go except apparently JK rear axle backing plates are next to impossible to find and crazy expensive when u do so im just waiting on those to arrive to finish up the rear.

The front axle on the other hand has turned into a debacle, long story short tube sleeves are to small to fit shafts and ARB no longer offers a factory replacement locker so I will be starting all over on the front end with a different housing! :bang: So as of now I'm working on just making it a driver until I can figure out what I am doing with the front end

So next was rock krawler aluminum tie rod, unit bearings, brakes, make brake lines..

I have been trying to figure out an option for all the aux switches and wanted to do something a little different and throughout my search found 12voltunlimited.com, they make a switch panel that goes in place of the factory stereo head unit. I also picked up a circuit breaker and fuse panel to power all the aux switches.

Image

Image

Really liked the simplicity and location of the panel. It will be able to provide all the functions I need in a clean, easy to locate place.

Since the radio was now gone I needed to find another way to have tunes in the jeep. Just so happens I have alot of buddies in the utv world so I picked up a wetsounds stealth 10 sound bar that a guy had laying around. Thing is stupid loud and will work perfect just will need to add a little bass at some point.

Front axle need a stub shaft bolted in to keep the hub/bearing from falling apart?
