Dave I'm sure we would all like to know where you are at with the Snojeep?
Maybe you need a web page?/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif It would just slow you down./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif Web pages are FAR beyond my present day computer skills. I have a the computer, but not the skills (yet). SNOJEEP is presently being re-smogged./wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif..the intake manifold is at the cleaners(hot tank guys) and the 2150 carb is ready to set on when the intake is back./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif All the air injection is ready to install. We are building the floor riser that supports the console and provides a duct for the floor heat. Our HUPP heater (Rosser)came last week /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.giffor the floor heat system, as well as the seat/shoulder belt systems (JCWhitney). The heater blower upgrade is done,/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif and so are the dual engine block heaters. We have a shifter ordered for the TH400 from Summit./wwwthreads_images/icons/ goes on the floor riser too. JUST YESTERDAY I figured out what we are going to do about the fuel filler,/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif and get this....We are using a chevrolet delivery van filler housing...the housing recesses in where the RH taillight was....the stock Jeep filler neck bolts to that....all below the wheel house panel, so no cuts needed; and is connected to the tank. We will be using recessed taillights (4" truck-type) cut in below where the two surface lights used to be. Separate lamps will be bumper mounted for the backup lights. The license plate bolts to the bumper backplate and will have it's own lamp. Our fuel re-work gives us: (1) more height above the tank..(2) no 90 degree hose angles at the filler neck, since the chevy part has a nice, built-in angle to it...(3)more down-angle to help the nozzle stay in. Filling with a Jeep can should be easy now. Realistically.....we SHOULD have the SNOJEEP ready to greet Santa,/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif if I don't get too busy with the paying kind of work./wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif It hasn't snowed yet, but we may get it tonight. Luckily, our '97 Grand is ready to go, with the fabulous 242 unstoppable Select-Trac!/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

C'mon Dave, it's 1999...web pages are all drag & drop now /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif
If you can use a word processor and/or something like Print Shop to make flyers & stuff, then you have all the skills you need to make a functional web page. Heck, type up some stuff and send me some pics and I'll do it for ya' /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif
There's a lotta really splifty sounding rigs in here but only a handful that can be seen on the web...

Dave, for sheer simplicity, Netscape web pages are a snap. That's how I did mine & it was all trial & error. The only part I needed help on was importing documents. Importing pics is a snap. The account is free & you can have up to 11 meg on the page. Other than the document importation, I have no web page training at all. Granted, my page isn't too exciting, but it serves a purpose.

/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif There is a compooter/graphics expert in "town"/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif who is going to coach me in some of this. I HAVE the stuff....scanner, TONS of graphics programs, etc,....just need some tech time...AND my next purchase....a DIGITAL camera. I can get the expert to come up here in the woods for twenty an hour....providing the snow isn't too deep that day. Heh heh./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif Actually, I'm a lot more adept with my trusty slide rule than a compooter...does anyone remember what that is?/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif things have changed./wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif Good ideas...I just HAVE to get more trained. Well, I'm outa to the high-tech world of to test a transformer at 4PM today....or whenever it is heated up and ready....sometimes takes HOURS to reach a plateau. Now THAT is something I understand! Heat transfer anyone?/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

Thanks Dave for the run down on your jeep. Sounds great. Take a lot of pictures so
you can show them to us later when you get computer smart./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif
Do you and your wife like doing trails or are you just a snow plowing type of guy.
I must say i not to hot on mud myself hard to clean up and helps rusting your jeep out
but I like playing in snow myself. easyer to dig out of and little if no cleanup after.
Wife and I like the trails when we can.
I know some about what you talking about on transformer heating to a plateau .
If the heat is high and we are generating hard .We will get our transformers cooled at night
so when we start hitting the load hard in the morning we can get 8 to 14 hours full load
before hitting Ann point and have to start backinf off. O-FA cooled. On the river we do have
some FO-FW cooled.

Hey Dave,
Happy to hear that you're making good progress on your CJ-7. I guess the old adage is true that the best Jeeps are built, not bought. /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

Take Care,

Hey CJDave I just got a Digital camera and it rocks...after I go on a trail ride I can update my web page with the pics that is pretty sweet. If you want to check out the quality of the pics go to

We cant let Dave off the hook this easy. I think after putting up with all of his tirades about our current government we deserve a webpage!

Anyone second the motion?

85 CJ7, 350TBI ,T19 4spd
'00 TJ Sport, NV3550 5spd, D44, Teraflex system
and my own Jeep webpage!
I second the motion - all in favor say aye -

aye /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif "BUT" I would hate to slow down a Jeep build /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif You know.... truly the hardest part of this whole project has been THE SCHEMING,/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif not THE WELDING. Just figuring out what is the best thing/or way to do something. like this gas filler, it has taken FOREVER/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif to make the choice of where to put it, and then which lights to go with. HOWEVER...having this BBS has been SUCH a big help./wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif Without this, we would have already made some big fat regretable mistakes,/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif and would have wasted some dough./wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif There are SO MANY different Jeep samples out there,/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif and I check out every one that I see, just looking for ideas. We also just decided to go with three seats instead of two, with the single rear seat alongside a storage box and demountable to make room for a cooler/luggage/stuff. Yeah, we usually don't go off road all that much/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif except for on the family farmstead, or when it is snowing so hard you can't FIND the road. Last summer the ZJ saw mud for the first time in 70,000 miles./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif By the way....the transformer flunked the test. Too much circulating current on X-1/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif. We had a little over 10,000 AMPS on the secondary bus, and I think the internal connections are too close together,/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gifbecause it was showing heat near the tank lid at X1.

/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif The way to check that out is to put your ear to the tank at X-1
to see if the oil is boiling so to heat the tank at the X-1 /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

But i know of a guy that stood by a oil boiling BRK trying
to let people hear the oil boil thru a 2-way radio as they
where trying to tell him to get out of there.He could not
hear them because he had the button pushed on his radio.
Well the tank blew on the other side of him and left him
unhurt. Fools and drunks?????????

There is another adage I thought you might like: "Old Jeeps never die, they just get parted away"
