    Overland XJ Build. Not my first Rodeo.....(video included)

    The XJ is currently under the knife! I ordered custom suspension(custom spec'd coils and leaf springs from Alcan) for the XJ for a better ride on and offroad. I'll be adding King Shocks to all 4 corners to complete the setup soon! Back in November, I picked up an XJ Dana 44 rear axle as well...

    Thanks so much everyone! It's been a little over 5 years since I started this thread on 10/16/15, wow! Here's a couple pics of the XJ from a couple of days ago! I recently sold my Roofnest Hardshell RTT and went with a new JCR Offroad Roof Rack. My new focus is making the Jeep as light and...

    Overland XJ Build. Not my first Rodeo.....(video included)

    Hey everyone! Just thought I’d stop by the thread really quick for an update! I moved out to Prescott, Arizona back in early February for a new job within the Overland Community. I drove the XJ 2,100miles from VA to AZ over 3 days, and the Mercedes Turbo-Diesel ran flawless, and continues to...

    Overland XJ Build. Not my first Rodeo.....(video included)

    I've got a stock AX-15 5spd Jeep Trans attached to the OM617 via an adapter from Doomsday Diesel. There is another Adapter kit on the market that I ran before the Doomsday Diesel kit, and it was absolute junk. The Doomsday Kit is the only one worth buying that won't cause issues! Check out...

    Overland XJ Build. Not my first Rodeo.....(video included)

    This is where I currently am. I'm starting to get all of the accessories installed on the OM617 Mercedes Turbo-Diesel. Aside from the power steering pump, every single accessory is brand new. The alternator is a John Deere 150amp upgrade from the stock 75amp alternator. Every seal in the...

    Final install on the motor. I had to fully droop the front axle to fit it back in there!

    This is the 3rd Modification on this Oil Pan, and it now clears the front axle perfectly during articulation. With all of the labor and shipping, I'm now the proud owner of a $1200 oil pan. :)

    A few more pictures of how the Rear Sump Pickup Tube and Rear Sump Oil Pan turned out on the OM617 Mercedes Turbo-Diesel. This is completely custom work and to my knowledge, hasn't been done before. :) I built a small bracket to support the pickup tube that bolts down on the 3rd Crank Cap.
