My Artec Armor arrived today. I posted on Jeeps On Tons looking for a deal. Maxx Pehling from Northridge 4X4 was the first guy to contact me and got me a killer deal. So here we are. Only GenRight and Artec make extended length sliders and blank corners for LJ’s. But a set of GenRights would have cost substantially more. So Artec’s for the win!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted an update. Unfortunately work and life has been nuts. I still don’t have my frame together. Friends of mine needed my transmission and the other needed the engine. So today I dropped the ass end off of it and spun it around. Friends helped me pull the engine, tranny and t-Case. Only one way to go from here! I don’t think it can get worse!

I having a hard time finding the tubing I need to lengthen the frame. I thought I was going to just just splice some together but I’m not happy with the result. The hunt for the right material is on. 4X2 1/2 x 3/16 just isn’t easy to find.

I recently sold the wheels and tires for this build with another Jeep I had. So I was back on the hunt for another set very briefly. Scored some close to new Trep Radials at a killer deal. Then I also found a set of these Dirty Life wheels for $250 a wheel. I was concerned they wouldn’t be of good quality with a price that low. After talking to some guys that are racing on them I went for it. I couldn’t be happier! And they slap just had a great week at KOH with zero issues.

installed Trail Readys Rapid Air Down valves in the new wheels. Nothing dumps air faster short of a fist size hole in your side wall. 10 seconds to go from 25 to 4 psi. Faster than pulling a valve. Had a set before and now I can’t go without.

Any updates on the build? I recently finished my TJ6 conversion; love seeing others doing the same things. I have scores of build pics on Instagram @the_real_ls2poweredtj6 and also started a FB group "jeep TJ6 Group" as a gathering place for folks doing this exact thing. Hope to see some progress pics!

I’m going to go check your build out. I got side tracked with our JKU for a bit but now I’m hot on it again. Goal is to be rolling by late spring.
