Default The Purple People Eater is under the wrench again

So this is gonna be my on going evolution of the Purple People Eater (or the purple bling as my dad calls it).

when purchased (not a bad deal but room for improvement):


evolution 2 (long arm and coil overs, 9"/44 hybrid for the front, put discs brakes in the rear):





as she sits right now:


Coming soon: hydroboost and hydroassist steering, flat fenders, and a stretch.

Mine is mounted to a bracket off the master cylinder bolts. Puts it to the inside of the master....PSC sells a bracket for this.

I was going to suggest the same thing but not sure how it would fit with the new brake system.

that sucks....

I made my bracket, but was thinking about getting the PSC one and switching it to the other side of the master. Want to sell yours?

I see my old pics aren't working, basically from last is finishing up, the fenders, rockers, front bumper, hydro assist/brake booster, and the driveline parking brake.

The Jeep Wrangler remains most likely probably most likely probably the most fun automobiles you can buy. When using the 4. liter straight-six engine, a simple design coming back 40 years but constantly refined or maybe more-to-date, it's surprising energy, and lots of the reduced-finish torque that's virtually absent from modern cars. Some-cylinder engine is sufficiently strong enough enough enough to energy the Wrangler with full confidence, nevertheless the fuel consumption savings isn't excessive the restricting factors are most likely weight and capacity the wind.

yeah, yeah I think the old picasa links went away when google switched it over to google plus photos. I probably should go back to using photobucket.
