  1. Somewhere between July and now my auto tranny went boom in my dodge so I bought a wrecked 97 12valve,NV4500 truck to swap the Nv4500 and anything else I needed into mine as I didn't have nearly enough money to pay for a built auto that would hold up. So I rebuilt the NV4500 myself and swapped it in. I also painted it purple because why not? Bye bye stupid slushbox
  2. I bought a 30' gooseneck 2 weeks ago because I'm moving back to NY. My life's been a complete sh!tshow since July but I've made some progress, in all aspects. I just haven't had time to update anything! hopefully after this move I can get my life back on track again. I have an awesome job lined up and all of my friends and family waiting for me to come back so I'm excited. Things will get rolling on my jeep once I'm settled in because I REALLY need to go wheeling again. I went down to Sand Hollow state park in Southern Utah not too long ago for Trail Hero and had a good weekend in the sun and got to put some miles on my trailer to get a better feel for it. I had some free time a couple weeks ago to put my front axle together with 35 spline outers and Yukon Drive flanges, cut down my front driveshaft to fit and had a rolling jeep again. I also cut up a not so pretty CJ tailgate for a tailgate skin and cut up a Longbed MJ bed for bedside skins. I never finished them or took any pics with them in place but they look bada55 B)

    The MancheMetal Project

    I'm flying back tomorrow night for a week, I might try to get out there for a day trip. There's no place like it anywhere! I never did hear anything about that runway shoot. I have a couple buddies that aquired some nice cars over the last year or so if you ever need to film some tires being mutilated haha. If you're coming out to Glen Helen I'll have to catch up with you there

    The MancheMetal Project

    Hey Will, it's Nick B from Long Island. I'm still very jealous of this thing and the Montauk pics! Glad to see you got that cps situation figured out! Hope to see more updates soon
  5. I'll regear them whenever I finish my Truggy, so probably never haha I'd just like to get them under my maroon Laredo so I can move it around, my landlord isn't the happiest with all my stuff in the driveway
  6. Picked up a JK30/44 for free last weekend from a buddy in moab, remember that Maroon 87 Laredo I have? I have just about everything to slap those axles under it and make it drivable besides shocks/ wheels and tires... I'll get some pics up whenever I swap them in
  7. Progress but not really progress. I got a tow pig and love it so far! 2001 2500 24v, Auto, 35s with a $#!& ton of goodies and new parts and has been very well taken care of. I'm currently saving for a built trans since it has 164k on the stock original trans :( 62mm turbo, 4" turbo back exhaust, Edge Tuner, Fass 150 fuel system, Industrial Injection 150hp Injectors for basics. I'm happy with it For real progress I bought a set of thin LED headlights to help out with the Dovenose and might be getting some Superjoints for the SD60
  8. Made some progress in the last few weeks. Picked up some 39.5" Iroks and some H2 wheels to get me by for a little while. My front 3 link is built but needs to be finish welded and still need to add a lot more tube up front. I'm undecided if I want to dovenose the front yet. I'd like to keep it looking somewhat like a Comanche. Here's some random pics. My trackbar should be pretty damn close to level with the drag link and the bracket was made from some scraps laying around the shop and is getting more reinforcement.

    What is the fastest you've ever driven your MJ?

    107mph in my 89 pioneer and according to the NYS highway patrol 89mph in my 87 4cyl :D

    King Of the Hammers

    I'll be co-driving the 4437 car! I'll be there from the 28th to the 7th. Unfortunetly I won't have my MJ with me. If anyone wants to come drink beer/ checkout my teams Early Bronco inspired 4400 car, our pit/camp is at 136 Yukon Blvd/ PSC Place! :wavey:
  12. Thanks! I can't wait to get this one rolling and started on the next one! I still have a lot of tricks up my sleeve for this one that I can't wait to show off. I think it's going to be pretty sweet B) My Dad isn't too fond of me chopping his beloved truck in half but he's also excited to see the outcome. I gave him my lowered 87 sportruck to cruise around in before I moved out so he can't be too mad :)
  13. I'm pretty indecisive with this thing but I'm kinda going all out with this now. The backhalf and cage is all 1.75/.120 DOM. Still have to tie it all together and finish plating the unibody. Eventually I'll pickup a 6.0/ 5.3 and swap it in. My new front axle is a 02 Superduty D60 with Timkin Unit bearings bored out for 35spline outers and 8x6.5 bolt pattern. Getting a ruffstuff diff cover, Redneck ram hydro assist, Passenger side High steer arm Milled into a stock knuckle and 5.38s and a spool Rear is a 9" with a backbone truss and top truss for upper link mounts. Has D60 outers bored out for 35spline shafts. Also getting 5.43s and a spool. 14" 2.0 FOA Coilovers at all 4 corners Doing a 3 link up front and a single triangulated 4 link rear
  14. I decided to cut it in half. B)
