Finally getting back to working on this thing. Little back story on truck. Bought it with less then 50k miles on it and stock, Lowered it initially 2/3 western chassis leafs with drop spindles, bout 6 months down the road added 3" blocks and 3" springs. This lasted about a year. Eventually I dropped the front another inch with 195/65r15 tires, and added set back plate with shims. This is how the truck sat for years. Then my wife and I bought a house, the truck would not make it up the driveway. This meant the truck was going to get the front bagged and keep rear how it is. This was almost 3 years ago. I decided I was going to get it finished this month and make it my dd again. As of today the front is bagged, 2 c-450s plumed in to a 5 gallon tank, auto water separator, 5 valves 4 3/8s for the ss7 bags and 1 1/2" for a tank drain. Wired a blazer hatch switch to work as the bag switch along with a toggle switch to turn power on and off to compressors. Truck is at a buddys house so we can finish floor modifications so I can run the 2001 leather eclipse seats I got (need recovered). The seats give me room for days above my head. Once floor is done (after getting welder fixed/new one, welder stays hot constantly.... Leads to horrible times), I will lay some sound deadener down then carpet. I am removing the sanden edc I was going to run to put ac back in it. This also means I going back to stock uppers and not the speedway ones I got. Running proforged tall lowers and proforged uppers. The proforged kit from suicidedoors.com is in route also. Have a cheap cai coming since I don't have the stock air shit anymore. On to some pictures

Didn't get anything done on truck last night, welder still messed up. It is getting dropped of today, then will get floor finished up.



Might hook this up







Modified hood stops to get more clearance (don't mind dirtiness, truck has been parked)




just the engine bay




Air gauge/switch/stubby/dash pad

gonna connect the stock air bag switch and run in the dash. I never turn it off anyways




gonna use fog light switch and connect envoy fogs.


need some new ones or recover



new toys, waiting on the rest to get here

So I actually got some work done on my truck, I went and picked it up from Grants (floors not done, will have to do this weekend). Got it to my house up and jack stands, tires all off and went to town, Looked up at clock and it was 11pm, which that's not bad. Until you figure I'm up at 4am. Got the oil drained, tranny drained (second time iv done it. Once at 50k now at 100k) Replaced wiper blades $3 bosh blades for the win. Drive belt replaced. Old one wasn't horrible but figured do all maintenance. Swapped in the corvette servo, Had it since 2013. Put on all the pro performance steering parts.

To change the servo I had to take the transmission mount out and lower the tranny, the cover kept hitting the tunnel. I'm also debating on swapping to a quick ratio steering gear box.

Somebody post up what year jeep grand cherokee box is a direct swap and has the quicker zq8 equivalent steering ratio. Looks like you had a productive night dude. Work has sucked but the check will be wicked. Rich and tired.

So I got a little more work done, swapped back to the stock control arms from speedway uppers, swapped the stock intake mani back on. Rewired the big 3, and added a shunt so I can run power wire in truck. Added all the ac components back on. Tried to install cai and it hits can and ac compressor. I might have to run the e-fan I had on it, so that I can get clearance. I didn't get a picture of all of it, but as they say thread is worthless with out pics, so here is the few I did get,

this is some wire I had that I compared to the knukonceptz wire, my wire was bigger so I used that, I will use the knukonceptz wire inside cab for amp.
