Hey guys, lost wifi out here in the stan, but I had my brother take the car into a shop, decided to have the whole setup re done and rebuilt. So when i get back i have no worries about the motor at least for a while.

thanks for all the help and ideas.

Hey, so progress, got the wires corrected(still plan to tuck a bit when i get home), runs like a top with the MS ecu and i have a set of FM v-maxx coilovers, plus some TR Motorsport 15x8 +20mm and Yokohama s-drives in the garage back home just waiting for me to come back from this deployment. gonna build my own roll bar for the back, figure i built a few jeep exo cages cant be that hard. thanks all for the help, i'll make a build thread when im home. cant do the pix right due to blocked sites out here, so if anyone wants to help i would be OK with that haha.





And yes i have the hood on it, this pic was pre tune so my bro took em getting gas before they street tuned it.

I am looking forward to installing my turbo stuff, its sitting in my garage waiting for the install, as for the v-maxx I really enjoy them. I don't have anything to compare them too though because when I got the car the shocks were blown, 2 springs were broken and 1 was bent so the car handled pretty awful. Now its very tight and I am very happy with them. Frame rails made a slight difference as well, my rails were pretty beat up as well
