Now i'm getting frustrated....again... I got the idle down to around 1000 rpms via the little screw. Idles fine, when cold. Now when the engine gets up to temp. it runs really rough, and dies. Any suggestions??

Try cleaning your throttle body that might help your idle then die problem.

Yea Buddy!!!

Went 4.56's, got that 44 in there, replaced all the u-joints on the truck, fabbed up a little bed cage for the shocks to go through the floor, new bump stops, relocated the battery, and got all the lights working.



O and for the record. Always use a full mask when welding. That arc burn hurt ten times more than any sunburn i've ever had. And probably ten times as cancerous too. lol

I bought the bumper off a member on Naxja. He had an old jeepspeed rig that his shop teacher made. So I guess it's custom. Lol
