That's a good upgrade.
Those SM465s are much cheaper than a NV4500 too.

You should spray bed-liner on the outside. I saw one done on a jeep website and it looked great!

The drive lines are finished and installed they were $90 to have the front lengthened and the rear shortened , I am going to have to trim some aluminum off of the bell housing as the front drive line is a little to close for my liking .

I put on some advance adapter motor mounts and transmission mounts , whoever had the jeep before and did the v8 swap really half asked it , I also fixed up the hacked up under hood wiring .

Rattle can bed-line that whole bitch.

I did that under the back fenders when I took out the factory liners back there. HF sells some that is great.

Gonna shoot the bumpers and fender flares with it too. The sell the spray on or a gallon can that can be rolled on.

Its better than the Rustoleom stuff. I haven't used the roll on stuff, but I've read/seen results of it and it looks good.

The more coats you spray, the thicker it gets. Been holding up fine for me.

The Jeep is at the exhaust shop getting a manifold to tailpipe system , my only request is I want it quiet as a mouse fart and a two into one exhaust with the crossover under the engine .
