Thanks. Good to know. I want it sealed up 100% properly for the long-term and the trim for looks. I had them order the black trim for the top, they were wanting to install chromed trim.





BTW, I figured out my previous questions about the rubber trim strip that is integral for the oem chrome trim. I'll post pics later. It IS integral, I don't *think* most of it is necessary.

It's a farm truck so I'm not too worried about scuffs, scrapes, and faded paint.



But I'm a firm believer in fix shit right.

I am about to pick up my B13 at Ashton Automotive & Performance in Killeen, TX.


I am dropping off my D21 with a bed and cab full of parts. Ashton has more parts on a shelf waiting. We're friends and he's like a devil on my shoulder.


We kinda got to talkin', and "while we're in there", and "wouldn't it be fun". Next thing you know, we're deep into stupid.


Here's the revised plan to be implemented shortly.



Engine Bay:
VG33 Supercharged swap.
125K miles, complete, and purchased.
Gonna fully refresh it with seals, hoses, belts, timing belt/chain(?), water pump, oil pump, etc. Ashton's dept.
JWT/4x4 parts cams and springs.
Doug Thorley header with exhaust.
JWT/4x4 parts pop charger
JWT or stand-alone engine management. Ashton's choice.
Tranny fully inspected for 100% function, Nismo tranny mount (+5 hp, easy).


Suspension:
4x4 parts torsion bars and leaf springs.
4x4 parts idler arm brace
Bilstien HD Shocks
Oem all the rest. Any and every thing.
Nismo Rays Te-37X's with BFG K03's, stock sized (close as possible with a 16" rim)(+5 Nismo horsepowerz).


Exterior:
ARB front bumper. 2 MFL off road lights.
Hella headlight upgrade, w/wiring-fuses, w/hot-ass H4's.
Dezert Runner rear bumper. 1 WFL back-up light.
(2) 4x4 parts skid-plates
Warn winch. 8-9 thousand pound, U.S.A. made, synth rope, etc.
4x4 parts 2-pin fiberglass hood (40 pound savings)
Jeep 2019 Olive Green (or similar) satin paint with black accents scheme. Paint the bay, pop all the glass, jams, address anything nec on the frame although nothing beyond surface corrosion that I have seen. A very thorough, nice "driver quality" paint job.
Shave or flush-in 3rd brake light so it looks oem. I hate that wart.
Shave antenna, or relocate under dash.



Brakes:
G-loc R6 front pads.
New rotors. Rear drums, and shoes.
Custom SS lines all around from my buddy Greg at G-spec.
Castrol SYN (?) fluid. Boils at roughly the surface temp of the sun.


Interior:

Infinity Speakers
JVC headunit with Sirius.
Black carpet.
Doors reworked, cleaned, lubed, trim replaced with repros.
Oem clean replacement wheel from ebay.
Already did headliner, seats, visors, etc....
Led lights for the dash and interior.
Tint windows.
Rear seats and hardware already ditched (50 +/- pounds). Replaced with....?





Everything must work 100% as oem. No drips, leaks, gremlins, dash lights, or weird idle. AC cold, hot heat, all gauges reading and accurate. Professional, sanitary, clean, factory reliable and properly done. Ashton is on the exact same page. And knows how to do all this shit.



I would appreciate any input, advice and heads-up on stuff I may have missed. I'm a newbie to these trucks.


Thanks.

If you are doing all that mech work it seems a shame to neglect the body.

You may have missed it, I have a tendency to be chatty.

That was at the end of the last post.



Also got some rust under the battery tray, a spot along the bottom of the pass side rear window, and a ding on the pass side by the tail light that is rusty.



Gonna fix it all and paint it.

Front ARB:

https://www.4x4parts.com/i-18915259-...-bull-bar.html


Rear Dezert Runner Offroad: I did the Standard High Clearance PreRunner style. Maxed out with license plate, recovery points, DOM upgrade, and powder coat.


https://dezertrunneroffroad.com/rear-bumpers/

Dezert Runner requires a full deposit, and will start making my bumper in June. The ARB bumper is an in-stock item at 4x4 Parts dot com. They shipped a day later.


I can see all of the utility of those bumpers being very useful on my ranch over and above the stock oem units. By a large margin.
