Figured I'd start a build thread, Just in case i have any questions with up coming things. this is my second jeep. my first one was a learning experience.The white one was a 2011 sport, had plans for it, but the jeep dealer had a brand new dozer and i really liked the color, and was fully loaded. really need seat warmers living in wyoming.

I got my c gusset in and need to be installed, just waiting on my welder to come in. Tired of borrowing my step dad's stuff. Got a Hobart 125 ez on order.
Trying to decide what lift, do I really need coil overs or enforcer.. in the mean time keep getting other things that I need regardless like skids, axle shafts and drive shafts.

What's your end goal? Sometimes it's easier to work backwards and then you can plan out what's required to put on 35's for example. That often dictates the need for supporting mods like your driveshaft, gussets, etc.

Something like this, lol. I'm not sure yet, 35's would be cheaper in the long run. 37's would be nice. Just cost more to do it right.

If you with the double d long arm kit you can go coil overs later and sell the springs and shocks. With the double d you will have the long arm to go with coil overs. Then again you can run stock control arms with coil overs.

I was thinking 3" enforcer and 35's at first, then move up to the bolt on coil over with currie arms and 37's and put the enforcer on the white jeep with the 35's.

Have you thought about painting the seam below your tailgate black? IMO that looks a lot better when you remove the rear bumper.

How did you cut the antenna down and how short is too short? I know that is a loaded question!

You pop the ball on the end off with visegrips and pliers. Then cut some off, I don't remember how much I cut off. I'm out of town right now. Then file down the end so the ball fits and hammer it back on. Then paint. I have the same radio reception and also have satellite radio. I need to do it on the white jeep, I'll take some pictures. Pretty easy.

Load resistors came in for the tail lights. Doing a little test fit. I'm going to go buy a hole saw to cut out the lights. Looking in there and there is some brace or something. be easier with a 4.5" hole saw.

Not sure if this will help anybody, but the wiring goes

White w/yellow= brake and turn.
Black= ground.
Or so at least I hope.lol.

Gonna order evo protek skids and probably rims this month. Trying to debate between slabs or the new chamber rims. Probably go with slabs since they are cheaper. Need to decide on a winch also, thinking of getting a q series from quadratech until I can get a warn power plant.

Looks good man, im waiting for it to warm up a little more to start my skin install. Did you paint them yourself? or have them coated? Also once the holes are drilled, are they easy to get back on or do you have to use straps and clamps to re-align them?

I have the quadratec winch with synthetic line that has been perfect for me so far for the ammount it gets used. I was going to get a powerplant but decided the money could go to more things, and ended up just upgrading my compressor instead.

I followed mtg's directions. Strap from door latch to tail gate latch. Clamp in the tail light hole and one in the bottom corner. Drilled the holes with the skins on. I used self etching primer, then coat of black paint, then coat of rustolium bed liner. Then put silicone and started from the door end. One bolt at a time and work your way back. Maybe a clamp to nudge the last three bolts.
I live in a little town in Wyoming, no powder coaters here:(.
I think I may go that route with the winch.

03-11-2014, 01:03 PM
yeah there arnt any coaters close to me, well that have decent pricing i should say, so im gonna attempt to paint them myself with some color matched paint instead. My guy thats good isnt used to doing larger jeep things and is like and hour and a half away which is annoying.

Color matched will look good! I'd wait to paint till after you have them fitted and holes drilled. Those straps will take the paint off. Got to torque down good to get them bastards snug.lol

either the evo bolt on coil over or enforcer.. can't decide.. either is a good choice. trying to see if anyone here has nitrogen. from what i've read and heard the kings don't come charged. but i'm not a 100% sure on that.:thinking:

where is the blinker fluid? maybe i should check that..

Anything to do with your 3rd brake light splice? I was just getting ready to wire mine up that's been sitting in the garach after seeing a thread you all had a couple of days ago.

i used the actual third brake light wire for the oro light. my guess is these lights don't draw enough power maybe? driver side works fine, passenger side is the only side:thinking: front light blinks. still havent put on my side markers either.

olram30
03-11-2014, 06:48 PM
I got it figured out. I fucked up on the light. White is ground, for what ever reason on trailer lights, but I had the red and black backwards. Red goes to yellow and white and black goes to purple and white.

hinrichs
03-11-2014, 06:48 PM
hmm if you used those wires like you showed earlier you should be fine, thats how my led kit is wired up and everything works great. Well i should say the tails work, the little reverse lights would light up when the engine was running, not full bright, but still always on.

Tried it out, looks pretty good. Thanks for the idea. Also put some fresh paint on the wheel wells. Gave her a good washing, Wyoming winters are brutal. Hadn't washed her since last summer.also cut the pinch seams, didn't need to yet, but the factory 90 seam bugged me.
I also ordered a tow hitch for the white jeep, I didn't get the tow package on it, 450 dollar option, but the new jeep came with 19/60 springs. The dozer came with a tow package and has 18/59 springs. I really don't understand their springs. Also ordered some lights for the reverse lighting.

The cabins are the ones at sand lake, the lake is deep lake and the others are down the 105 b road. So far my favorite lakes are bear lake and phantom lake. The ones you have to hike into would be the shelf lakes and deep. Gonna explore by encampment this year in the Sierra madres. I think cow creek reservoir, silver lake and north and south spring creek lakes. Kinda looking forward to cow creek and silver, I heard the roads are pretty rough. Can't wait till summer. They just got a foot of snow last week. No getting up there without a snow mobile

Reverse lights came in, couldn't afford rigid dullies, so got eBay "foolies". I'm gonna put them on the crossmember, the holes are perfect, but couldn't get a socket in one and gonna have to drill out the other, I think I'm just going to weld a threaded stud instead.

Well my change oil reminder came on and I am due for an oil change, thinking of going with synthetic oil. Seems most people run mobile 1. But I noticed some people go with 5/30. What should I go with?
Also since I have the oil out, figured I'd order the evo pto tec skids. Also ordered a procal and evo no limits say bar thing. My motor works fine, just rather run that and possibly sell my motor.

I got 1/3 of the skids on and a oil change. Need to put on the other parts soon. I hate the way that line and transmission pan are open.
Also figured out my confusion on which oil, the 2012 dozer uses 5/30 and the new 2014 uses 5/20 which seems thin to me. More parts should be in tomorrow from Brown Santa.

Got the last piece of the evo protek skids in. Also ditching the factory disco motor. Works fine, just rather have something I don't have to worry about getting damaged. Also got a procal and the evo fairlead light bracket. Probably gonna get a light bar, but Wyoming I'm required to have a front plate and the bracket has mounts for a plate. I think I can rig up some thumb screws. Also put on my wayalife stickers! To bad I have to go to work.

ARB do a hinged plate bracket, is great if you need to winch ya just fold the plate up out of the way. not the clearest shot but you can just see the plate sticking out over the rope

You know, when I was in the market for a front bumper, I almost went with the arb stubby bumper..I know it came with that bracket to use a license plate. Can't find the bracket anywhere by itself. I got some thumb screws and should work ok.our at least I hope.

She's just begging to get that hole filled!
So in the mean time, I put on the evo light bracket. And the thumb screws worked good. Going on vacation this week, think when I get back I might get a winch, or the other things I need to get before the winch... thinking I might just go with a warn power plant. But I think before I put it in, I should get trucklites before. I think once I drop the winch in, there is no getting the grill off.also what length of synthetic line do people run? 80 or 100 feet? Also got the top bolts done on the bumper.

Good question, here's a little back story on my situation. I'm an engineer for union Pacific railroad. When I get called to go to work, I have to leave my jeep parked in a lot at work. Sometimes I'm gone for around 2 days. I've seen fellow co workers tires get slashed, my friends jeep got keyed up and couple of hit and runs. I guess piece of mind.. I mean the battery is pretty easy to steal. If you don't get good parking, you have to park in this dirt lot and makes me nervous. Just paranoid I guess

I installed it almost a year ago, it's very well constructed and it seems to offer very good protection.

It's pricey but it will give you peace of mind, I wouldn't like to come to my car and find out the battery is gone and wiring is a mess.

There are other options but for me they can't beat the fact that you use your Jeep's key.

You will need a rivet tool, but not the std small one, can't remember exactly what the size is for the rivets but they are big.

Well, I do like buying tools. The same key as the ignition is a plus. I wish the locking gas caps were as easy to match with your key. I believe you have to go through the dealer and vin number. This thing I think just put your key in and turn. Thanks fir the reply, want sure if this lock was worth it because I never really hard anybody use one:thumbup:

Gotcha! Thanks for the quick reply. That price isn't bad at all!

gonna keep my eye out for a 20" light bar. i don't mind going cheap on lighting as long as they work. if i was in some baja races, i could see dumping cash. i would like a 50" light bar also, but that might be later on.

Is $300 cheap for a 20" in your opinion...?

Well, I do like buying tools. The same key as the ignition is a plus. I wish the locking gas caps were as easy to match with your key. I believe you have to go through the dealer and vin number. This thing I think just put your key in and turn. Thanks fir the reply, want sure if this lock was worth it because I never really hard anybody use one:thumbup:

Here is the link for the installation instructions.
http://www.quadratec.com/Assets/Installation/101155.pdf

You are right, just put your key and turn it clockwise, it will set up your lock for that specific key.
Then you would use the key and turn it counterclockwise wise to open the lock, remember to take they key off the lock every time.
I have found myself looking for the key and it's in the lock. :D

I luckily got my locked gas cap from the dealer, the only extra key I have is for the shovel and hi-lift brackets on the Gobi roof rack.

I would think you could also use some good self tapping screws, :idontknow:, I installed another brand hood lock on a buddy's JK that looked like a rebranded Mopar lock and it just used 4 self tapping screws in the same locations as the Q-tech instructions linked above.

Got back from our trip to New Mexico. 2500 round trip, this is what the grill looked like after. Bugs were bad. Few things I wish we had to make traveling easier, arb fridge. I think I'm going to have to invest in one. Dealing with ice and wet, soggy food sucks. Also truck lites for both jeeps. Stock lights blow. Also the white jeep is getting close for its first oil change. Might be a good time to put a evo oil pan skid. Buying parts for two jeeps is going to hurt the wallet. But at least our trip is over and I can dump money into them again.

thats just a super sized regular rivet tool, i already had a astro rivnut tool and liked it. i ordered a hood lock and needed this thing to install it. 23 bucks from amazon wasn't too bad. and yes, the hobart is a nice welder, it welds up to 3/16 steel. anything bigger and i use my step dads arc welder. but for small stuff it works great and super easy to use:thumb: i found i get better welds if i drag rather than push with flux core wire.

Yeah, have a buddy here with a 75 and he likes it and a few others here who run them and sounds like they work well in close range groups which is when it'd probably be used a majority of the time.

Was just thinking of the Uniden as it seems to get good reviews, smaller foot print than other traditional full box CB units and would seem to have more range than the 75?

thats a solid list indeed! if your even considering the bolt on coilovers you mine as well get them. as for the CB i have the cobra 75 and i liked it. it was nice cause you could put it away when it was not in use and was decent in small groups. i switch the the 29 and have been a little happier with it. its louder and i have gotten better range and reception with it.

Yeah, been years since we ventured those areas and probably been there more on snowmobile than 4 wheels which is a total different experience. Crazy how 12 ft of snow makes everything look so different. Dad was just commenting last night how much is still sitting around up there.

Brown Santa showed up with some goodies! My plan is to go with a warn power plant, so as big as that thing is, figured now would be a good time to put in lights and a hood lock before the winch. Also the warn synthetic line looks good, for 217 bucks I thought was a good deal. Poison spider hause fairlead and fire extinguisher strap also. So I can knock off lights of my list and I should have the winch before the end of the month. Northridge has a package deal, I think I'm going to get a prolink in gunmetal. And next month should have a soft top. Kinda threw the idea around with the wife about the arb fridge and she thinks it a good idea. Didn't tell her how much it costs:eek:

while at work, i was talking to a co worker that is in the process of changing all the lights on his Cherokee to led. i was telling him how i changed out everything on mine to led, tail, reverse, side markers head lights and even interior. then it hit me i never changed out or did anything to the front turn signals:naw:. should i even bother changing these out? i looked around and all i saw were recon, which im sure are Chinese and anzo usa which are clear like the new jeeps. then it started to bug me.. are these good brands or am i just being weird. should i just leave the stock ones on and forget about it?

While everyone is getting ready for Easter, I had a few minutes to install the truck lites and hood lock. Very easy to finish both. I had everything done in 20 minutes. Now I have to wait till night time to see how well these lights work. The hood lock was only 4 big rivets. All the holes were already there and coding the key was super easy. Hopefully my paranoia of someone stealing my battery or messing around my engine bay will go away.:eek:

I was also worried about this synthetic winch line I bought. Quadratec has it for 300 bucks and even Northridge was I think 270 bucks. Getting it for 217 bucks,I was worried it might be the Chinese version. But after further investigation, I was pleased to find out its made in the USA.:thumbup:

olram30
04-21-2014, 04:11 AM
Ok, it's dark and I went for a drive with the new lights and I'll give an honest review.

The install was easy, but after I finished and went for a drive, I noticed the drivers side kinda had some wiggle. I've seen other people put electrical tape around the light. The passenger side is solid. So I'm going to say that the problem is not with the light, but maybe the jeep? Seems a lot of people have had to do this. not really a deal breaker. Tape is cheap.

I was always wondering about this "x" pattern, and yes I can see it. I think I see it because I'm looking for it.
The light is a nice color, not yellow or blue. Easy on the eyes. And the left to right is wider than stock. Big plus! Driving straight is a nice coverage of light, but when I turn there seems to some dark spots or some weird patterns. That's just a hard turn and going up or down a hill.

The brights are just that, brighter than shit! And that's a plus. Super distance and width.

All in all, very happy. I've heard people say they adjust them some way to do away with the x pattern, but I don't know how and quite honestly, it seems to go away if I don't try to look for it. The price is steep, and I think so far they are worth it. I will more than likely buy a second set for our white jeep. I didn't comment on the looks, because they look sweet, but this was for the actual intention of the lights.
I'm happy.:thumbup:

Yeah, just the drivers side. Really not a deal breaker, I think just a bit of tape should do the trick. Other than that, these are really nice. I'm happy
Edit
I'm going to compare it to the evo d rings. Some people have to trim less or more for a flush fit. I don't remember if the light housing was stamped metal or plastic. But I really think all jeeps are different.

I stole my wife's antenna today and decided to stubby it. It's real easy to do and to me, it's similar to trimming factory fenders. I have the same reception when we listen to the radio. But 99% we listen to satellite radio.
I just use vise grips and pliers to pop the ball off. I cut mine to 20 inches long put a little bevel on the end so the ball can go back on and lightly hammer it in. Then paint if you want black.
It's still flexible and doesn't flop around like the stock one while driving.letting it dry, but it's the same thing I did too mine. No need to pay money for a shorter antenna. :beer:

just ordered a warn power plant with the free factor 55 flatlink from northridge. feel a little sick, lol. it's a big chunk of change for a winch, but after a month of thinking, it's gonna be worth it. i figured a premium warn winch is a little over a grand and if i were to buy the arb twin compressor for oba plus a bracket to mount it, well id be in the same ballpark. not going to lie, i really thought of buying a lower priced winch just to fill the hole, but if we go to the mountains, i'm usually with my family in one rig and a winch is the last resort to getting unstuck. i really want something i can depend on. plus my wife would be pissed off if i got stuck and had to go walking to find help.

I just noticed the price for the enforcer went up and is almost 1300 bucks. It was around the 1100 mark before. So now I'm thinking I might just go with the coil overs.
Might as well go with what I really want. I was going to put the springs on the white jeep when I upgraded to coil overs, but I think I might put the Rancho 2" on the white jeep and 35" tires with flat fenders abd call it a day.

I placed it in the bumper to test fit, and looks as if I'm going to have to grind some of the bumper and a little corner in the frame horn. So it started to snow and I'm going to have to take the grill off and cover up the lights so sparks don't pit them up. Oh well, no rush. Looks good though!

quick update on the truck lites, dont just install these without adjusting them. i did the 25' back and 3' up thing and really improved the beams. the dark shit on the sides is from the stinger:doh: but these lights are so nice with the left and right pattern. also the hood lock is ok. a little piece of mind, until your mind says if someone wants to steal your stuff bad enough they'll still find a way.

I just installed my trektop nx the other day; I love it so far, I had a soft top prior to that and I love the look of it and the ability for it to just be a bikini top. If you're comfortable running completely topless then I would get the fridge.

olram30
05-25-2014, 05:18 AM
Hard top is fine, I think I'll get more use out of the fridge than a soft top. I'm tired of ice chests and wet soggy food. I got a big camping trip planned in July. Maybe I can get both by then. I had to order the oil pan and transmission skid for the wife's jeep, I hate having it unprotected. Can't wait to get the trail table installed!

olram30
06-02-2014, 08:35 PM
I got some nuts and bolts to finish. The instructions say to put the flat bolts in the counter sunk holes, but mine didn't have counter sunk holes. So I just bought some grade 8 bolts and finished the hinge. Also the spot weld reference point is a good start, but I drilled my first hole to the left of it. If I would have drilled in the weld, it would have been sitting crooked. Drilled the first hole, put a nutsert, bolted it down. Then marked the second on the other corner, drilled and nutsert. Then bolted it and drilled the other pilot holes through the table. Makes lining up the nutsert do much easier. Pretty solid and no rattles. Very happy with purchase!

Couple of things I need to do on the Rubicon x, need to figure out a way to open up the hood vents. Not even sure if I need to, I don't live in a warm climate. But I need to make some covers on the front bumper to cover up the wiring for the fog lights. There is places to bolt something, just need to make some covers. I have some plexiglass from a project I did. Made my son a cage for his bearded dragon and have some left over. I guess I could paint it black. I don't have any black plastic.

Just drove down to Northridge 4x4 in Colorado! Got an awesome deal on an arb fridge. Tim gave me a tour and got to see a bunch of cool jeeps. Saw a pr80 and that thing is a massive. Like a dummy I didn't take any pictures:(
But olivers jeep and this other silver one were sweet. Really nice shop and I know where I'm getting my gears done when I need them done.
But I got the fridge out of the way. But a lift and tires are soon, my factory springs are pretty compressed from the extra weight.

06-14-2014, 10:43 PM
While I was at Northridge, they had a nice scrambler, they were going to put jk axles under it. Thing already looked nice, but anyways, after seeing a lot of evo rear fascia I ordered one. I really liked these lights from rigid industries, but they weren't on Northridge web site. Sent a pm asking about them and they were able to get them for me. And a lot cheaper than anywhere else, even from rigid. Really nice of them to go out of their way to do that. Not too many places would do that!
Can't wait till Monday, Brown Santa should be here bearing gifts!

I also bought a evo track bar bracket from a member here, bracket is new. But it's the bracket for the bolt on coil overs. I don't think it will work with a traditional coil lift. So if anybody it's interested I'll sell it. I'll get pictures when I get back home.

Saw this kit, looked interesting. It has 4 ports to hook up to. Going to do the diffs and try to do the transfer case. But I think I should wait till after I lift it so I have the right amount of slack on the new lines. When I get it installed, I'll try to give a review of this. I probably should have done the diy thing and saved money, but I have a shopping problem.

Then going to check out silver lake, cow creek reservoir and if I'm feeling brave, there is the continental divide trail. Heard it's pretty rough, going to attempt it.

Coming through the lower half of Wyoming last month, we did see a little snow but nothing of significance. Of course, it's a bit lower were we were. Wish we had some of that up in our Sierra's. I think we only got 18% of our normal snow pack.

Also Brown Santa showed up, but not with jeep parts:( , been replacing Windows on the house. Not really jeep related, but keeps the wife happy and allows me to buy jeep parts! :thumbup:
Here is before and after.

Oh good, the guy at the service department didn't seem to sure either.

Here is the '12 and '13 filter. It's basically flat on both sides.

Nobody laugh, but a long time ago we had a Chevy venture. It had on board air. When we traded it in I kept the air hose. It's pretty nice, screws on to the valve stem and even has a gauge on it. Thinking I can cut off the end and put a chuck to fit the power plant. It would make airing up easier. I'll post pictures when I get it done, but here is the hose

Less maintenance. No more painting.

Yeah, thinking it might be easier and its really a nice hose. Just need to find a chuck with barbs to put the end. All the ones I have are threaded.

My daughter is wanting a vehicle soon, the wife came across this jeep. Not a bad price, comes with hard and soft top. Anybody know how much these normally go for? I'm not sure the miles or anything.

Checked the number and its a 804 area code, not even going to bother trying.
But I did buy a coupler for that hose today, I'll hopefully have it done tomorrow.

Installed oil pan and transmission skids while doing the oil change on the white jeep. Just need to order the crossmember skid for it. Glad I did the oil pan, some bolts on the pan were loose. Came like that from the factory. And I mean didn't need a wrench loose

Got this in today, somewhat jeep related, when we go camping, it's tight to pack gear for all 5 of us plus the dog. Water takes up a lot of space and I got this katadyn water filter. Pretty neat, just fill it up with creek water and hang it up. Has a hose with a shut off valve. I use the hiker pro when I go backpacking, but I'm not pumping water for 5 people.

Also rigged up that hose with a coupler. To my surprise, it worked great.

Just noticed the price drop on the evo tire carrier. Hopefully it'll be the next purchase before price goes back up.

Went on a camping trip near Lander in the wind rivers. Had a great time with my family. Here are some pictures, some are the Oregon trail to get there, split rock, a few lakes and some nice trails to drive.

Only thing that happened on this trip. My fault for taking the jeep through the hard stuff on this one trail. Thankfully I had evo skids, but I slid off a rock and hit my crossover skid hard. I got it bent back. I really need to get tires and a lift. Evo sliders and skids really are worth the money.

Oh cool, we are planning to go soon. Last time we were up there it was still covered in snow. All the roads were closed. Hopefully the snow is gone by now. Really want to take that trail from Libby flats to Rob Roy reservoir. Then another trip through the twin lakes to turpin.

I have hood envy, I really like the Rubicon x hoods, but don't want to spend money. I'm thinking of getting a poison spider hood thing. Not anytime soon, need to get a lift and tires. But just get jelly when I see my wife's hood:(
