Project Patience....a 90 Eliminator trail build

Recommended Posts

Got my Napier flares installed. 

The rears required some massaging to fit, since I trimmed up to the pinch weld. I wish they went down further, but oh well.

so far so good. Ive only had it on the trails a couple times and it seems to do just fine. Daily driving, it is invisible. If you can afford it, go full selectable lockers. but if your on a budget, i have yet to see a downside to it!

Snow run today for a Christmas tree. The truetrac up front did great. Had a couple uphill digs through drifts. Let off the gas when it started hopping, and just let both wheels dig. Really liking these extreme countrys in powder. They don't seem to like ice very well, but they shine in the deep stuff.

Beautiful country out there, off roading must be a blast. Believe it or not I have been to Gillette, spent the night there. It has been several year back, flew into Rapid City and picked up a rental car and drove across country to Walla Walla, Washington. Great trip! beautiful country!

That bumper looks so much better than the old one. Your truck looks great!

Thanks! Ive gotten to use it quite a bit between winching Stuck XJ's out of snow banks and tugging high centered XJ's off grader wind rows. (a friend has a little private off-road course on his property)

THOR intake kit has arrived. Will be retrofitting this to a Renix intake. 

Cav-Fab t-case skid has shipped, should be here the 20th.

THOR intake installed. Renix adaptor and boot mates right to the tube. some slicing and dicing on the bulkhead. Does have an annoying whistle at partial throttle I'm going to have to track down. Had to get a 1/2" PEX tee to connect all the vaccume hoses. not bad overall. much better than the spectre kit.
