Wildman's TJ is getting a face lift

Come to think of it, the engine builder that built my 5.9 cummins recommends AEM, but not AFE, in their warranty literature. That speaks volumes when you're talking a 5 year 100k mile warranty...

I wonder why they prefer AEM over AFE? We won't even start on K&N.....

I'm not going to do anything until I've got the manifold installed and verify that I can do the cowl induction. The filler that comes in the kit from Specter will work to start with.

I think it had something to do with the amount of flow and particulate intrusion. The AEM will filter out smaller particulates and still flow as well as the AFE 7 layer dry.

I've been working towards this point and am here finally.


I've got some lazers I'd bought and will figure out how to use today.

Teaching old dogs new tricks. We'll see how this goes.
 
Got the chalk line laid down.

Rear lazer to verify the axle is square to the frame.

Axles centered.

The only thing left is to set the rear pinion angle (which is close since I'd set it earlier).
And to set the front caster angle and I'll be done with alignment of the axles.
