GREAT BIG THANKS to EARL! and my dad for getting humpty safely back to the shop for me. I know traffic couldn't have been bad on a Sunday morning, but I'm sure it was still nerve racking, the whole .5 miles Thanks again man.

This thread really really sucks.

I was almost 99% sure that I was going to keep a gasser in my Honcho, but now you have me second guessing myself again. Now I will, again, spend weeks agonizing over the decision that I thought was already made. My Cummins is sitting right behind the Honcho.

Absolutely beautiful truck.

I'd like to see how you pull yours off. I keep hearing you can get a 6BT in an FSJ but that the firewall needs modification and the aftercooler mounting gets interesting. PLEASE post pics!

"unike" Also ... I was under the impression that Jeep never made a 4 door/crew cab truck. I checked out your profile here on IFSJA and didnt see any pics. Would you post 'em up here?

... I went through this same process several times. The first time I upgraded axles. The next coupla times were full on builds that I had researched.

Its all a process and part of the sickness!

Very nice work. Love to see another Jeep with a Cummins in it. I am in the middle of my 6bt swap and have a photobucket account set up for those that want more pictures - wont be the same quality of work as you see in this thread, but it will work.

I would love to know which Hydroboost system you used for your Jeep, and is that a Vintage Air heating system??

Once again FANTASTIC work!!
