    Yes, the facory radiator is being replaced with a larger aluminum radiator. I'm not sure if they use the factory electric fan or replace it

    Actually yes!!!

    I'm very excited. I know a lot of you have been enjoying your JT's but I haven't even seen mine in person yet. Motor is in and everything is ready to go. Jan from HP Tuners is flying in to AMW tomorrow to fire it up!!!!

    I'm leaving Miami wednesday to go get Lucifer Friday. I'm headed over to the roadkill nights in detroit friday and saturday. Hopefully I'll get a chance to drag race it on Woodward ave Friday before it gets the off road treatment. I'm leaving Detroit saturday and headed over to Teraflex to get some mods.

    Attached are some new pics. Thanks for following!

    Wow, that is impressive, very nice build. I'll be at Roadkill on Saturday, hope to see your Gladiator there, especially in the drags. I'll have my Red LE in the show and shine portion with some minor mods.

    Sorry for not updating anyone this past week. I just got back from picking up lucifer and dropping it off at teraflex in salt lake city. 5,800 miles and 6 days later...

    I arrived at AMW on Friday am and it wasn't running yet, so by end of day we finally got it started up but didn't have any time to tune it. Went to the Road Kill show and got to meet Eric, EPTJ from this forum which was pretty cool. It's one thing to chat with people over forums, getting to put a name with a face is always better.

    So we spent all day sunday tuning. Since I'm getting axles and tires we didn't mess at all with the transmission shift points. It's currently shifting at 5,500 RPM, but the demon motor redlines at 6,700 rpm, so there's a whole lot of power it's missing right now. We wanted to get it running safely, so while it's at the next few places the engine can't get hurt in case someone wants to go for a joyride.

    The install really was amazing. It looks completely factory. Everyone who's seen it, or any of AMW kit's are really impressed with how they look. If you've ever seen an AEV installed motor swap it looks as good or better than AEV's.

    Below are some pics and video, I have more and videos on my instagram if you want to check them out @bluewafflejku




    So Teraflex will be doing the suspension with their Falcon 3.3 shocks. They showed me around and for a test drive on their JT with the falcons and I was shocked by how well they performed. I always thought coil overs were the way to go, but after riding in there's I was amazed.

    I don't know that they'll be able to get a set of axles installed in the amount of time that we have, so there's a real good chance that it'll go to sema on stock axles and I'll install 60's when I get it back to miami. Sucks but I may not have a choice. As long as they're done by EJS it'll be fine.

    It was very nice to meet you, too. That JT is amazing to see in person, I hope to get a chance at SEMA to check it out with the lift. AMW really did a great job on that Demon install, really got me thinking that I need at least a 6.4 upgrade in the near future.

    SICK! I know JTs weren't designed for drag racing, but with some slicks, I wonder what time this would get.
