Just finished with a tune up before she goes under the knife for a major over hull. Many plans for her in new year.

Looks like you went a little smaller with the light array too. Still looks good, engine work?

No engine work yet. I'm going to be modifying my bumpers, and rock sliders, full length roof rack, hood vents/louvers, MBRP exhaust, and full suspension upgrade among other things. Your rig is looking really good. I still wish I knew about the CRDs before I bought mine.

do the hood vents help with anything?

and thanks, yours among others were what inspired me to go ahead and build mine out, your blog on progressing along with outfitting your jeep was really useful to see what helps and what dose not coming form a stock rig like mine.

I never wanted a liberty, I was more of a K5 6.2 diesel guy then I found out about the CRDs. in my area they are usually around 10K still but got mine for little over 4K, Green Diesel sold it to me for the cost of the timing repair when a guy let the belt brake >.>

Oil change, new air filter, prepped for snorkel installation later this week, prepped for installation of my rock rails (had rusted bolts break from the salt back in IL), and created a system in my trunk so my tool box and recovery stuff does not slide around.


possibly ordering a synthetic winch line later on...

Put on some amber LED rubber strip lights in the gap between the fender flare and the ARB bumper (new bumper from ARB only has white markers).

if it holds up (shrink wrap and shrink butt connectors are my hope) I think this is a good way to get some amber light going on the forward view in a place thats protected.

if they hold up im going to put a little 2 inch strip right at the edge of the bumper/fender flare that only comes on with the flasher. left myself the ability to wire that in later.

Finally fixed my shift linkage to my transfer case. When shifting back and forth I noticed that my 4hi and 4lo dash light doesn't come on. Any thoughts... bulb, fuse, sensor?

Ok good to know. Mine would go on and off while driving a couple of months back so I will definitely look into this. Was it a straight fix or did you have to take it in? Oh and as far as the hood vents, I am hoping that it helps because on long trips my engine temp starts to creep over half. I'm pretty sure it's due to the placement of my winch. Others on this site have vents so maybe they could chime in.

I know somewhere on this forum there is a post about changing that sensor, but here is this link so you can have an idea of what's going on under there and how it can be changed:
http://www.jeepkj.com/forum/f202/how-ch ... cle-51959/

I used an oversized socket and did it from the inside of the jeep, can't remember the size but it was very tricky to get it in and out
