bbusch's TRJ build.. 6.2 LS3 Conversion Underway

So got some new stuff going on the heep over the next few weeks so thought I would start a thread showing off the progress.

Just picked her up yesterday in Sac and had some non visible items installed including a banks stainless header, centerforce clutch and lots of maintenance. I ordered a Rock Hard cage today and last week ordered a set of billet hood hinges from Prestige (not yet arrived).


few pics taken yesterday






Speaker pod pics with the top down... they sound as good as they look!







New gauge cluster mounted on the center console




That's the Rubicon in the background just above the hood cowl




Also about to start the garage floor painting and paint the walls for the Jeep Cave!





I will post pics as I install the cage and other parts.

Re: Upgraded Summer Pics of the heep

Just decided to sell off all the tires and wheels I have and go with a set of 37 12.5 17 Goodyear Kevlar MTR tires and 17x8 OMF Beadlock wheels. If anyone is interested in the wheels/tires above or my set of Maxxis Creepy Crawlers check out my thread over in the Flea Market. The evil always sets in in the summer....


*edited... cancelled tire order and stayed with the Creepy Crawlers.

Had them built by an audio shop. He used the original pods and built the molding around them and then the fiberglass... paid to have this done as it's not in my skills set (at least if I want them to look good when I'm done).

Re: Upgraded Summer Pics of the heep

Five of these arrived this morning...




The other four are being mounted and balanced as I type.


Rock Hard cage went out this morning to be painted and the 8274 should be here tomorrow along with the plate.
