    New valve body is in! Works great! Shifts smooth.


    Also this engine has more oomph. I have to stand on the brakes in 4 lo to keep it stopped... Looks like a brake upgrade...
    I have an appointment on Thursday to put it on a Dyno to see what I have.

    Good deal about the valve body.

    Any pics of the rear winch mount you were working on?

    I have it done, but to be honest, not really happy how it turned out.
    I like the way it tucked in this way:

    But I dont like the way it is hanging low:
    20170604_162926.jpg

    The original plan was to bring it back to the 1/4 panel at the wheel, but that makes my already bad departure angle worse. I may cut the winch mount/box off and tuck it up and under the body and bring the bumper up a few more inches to follow the contour of the body. The difficulty is allowing enough clearance for the tailgate to come down.

    I see what you mean about the challenge with the tailgate.

    The Taco wheels look good on that Classic Jeep, one step closer to seeing the light
