Thanks. I10 is flat and we had no wind to impact the test. I want to take it down to my dad's house for a longer test and about 4000 feet above see level. Then we should see some different numbers.

Re: Ol Blue

I don't think 16 mpg is too bad for that big beautiful burb.

I'm happy with it. I think that's about the best I'm going to see from it.

I'm taking a short break but I have more stuff that will be done. Still have a bunch of parts. For the time it's been my driver. Thanks for checking it out.

I have been down in Tucson just about every weekend in February. Last weekend was Phoenix and this weekend might be hitting the renaissance festival out at Apache Junction.

Re: Ol Blue

Not much of a update. Parts are showing up and more will be getting done. With the heat on the way I wanted to get the A/C up and running. This should do the job!

Re: Ol Blue

Still waiting on some of the small parts to install the front runner kit. Worked on some of the small detail stuff that is just labor. Drivers side had some damage from what looks to have been from a tow chain.

Re: Ol Blue

Back when I cut off the old tow hitch I was a bit lazy and didn't cut all the old stuff off and needed to address this to install the new one.

Re: Ol Blue

The big stuff is in place. Sometime down the road I might replace the bumper and cut a cleaner hole for the receiver.

Just reading through your build and I have to say, these seats are fantastic! Some day I hope I can find someone nearby me to replicate them!

Enjoying reading your build!

Re: Ol Blue

That's a sweet fan setup. Is that a universal fan in a stock shroud?

Re: Ol Blue

Yea, give us more info on that fan swap. I want to get rid of my stock fan and go with an electric set up. I like the idea of utilizing the stock shroud. More info please........

Someone has a thread on it. I will try and find the link. It's a stock fan from a 2004 jeep grand Cherokee. It fit's great. took all of 15 min to mount up. This is a junkyard one I picked up for $40. I wanted to test it out first. In the AZ heat I should give it a good test. I will post my findings. I'm going to try it out first with the stock short pump and then if it works out install the frontrunner. I'm not crazy about changing a ton of stuff in one shot.

I do think that will be on my list. I have a stock cover. I looked at some nice aftermarket units that will fit and it's not crazy hard to make up lines for it. I have some ideas of how I will vent the front unit. I know I will need the rear unit if anyone wants to ride out back and not bake.
