Towing capacity is a function of the GVWR, unless your going to get that changed with your local DMV it'll be the same as before. However, actual 'performance' when towing should be significantly improved across the towed weight range with less stress on the engine / trans at higher towed loads.

New dubs....

Sent these 5 wheels off to be powder coated a satin black. I originally bought two full sets locally and pretty reasonable. I sent the best 5 to be coated. If anyone needs 1, 2, or 3 wheels let me know. Otherwise I may buy one more and keep a set of studded Duratracs on them for the winter...

Hit a Snag....

Ran into a little snag with the hood clearing the alternator. Apparently with the large 120a alternator the stock defender hood will not clear it.


Options were to mount a smaller alternator, move the alternator using different mounting brackets, or a Puma hood.


I was planning on getting a new hood as mine was in pretty rough shape, but I would have preferred a new non-Puma hood.


To save some $$ I ended up with the Britpart fiberglass Puma style hood. It has plenty of clearance, a good 2-3 inches over the alternator. Hopefully it holds up....

I think with this build the Puma hood will look really good. Plus you have the clearance for the alternator and some more room for air to move around for cooling.

Good point, I definitely like how much extra room it gives the motor, it will be nice for air circulation. I can even fit the plastic dust cover now.

Powdercoat

Picked up the wheels from the powder coater, they turned out great and look brand new!
I also took the seat box and floor panels to them just to be sandblasted. The owner offered to coat them the same color as the wheels for next to nothing so I said why not as it saves me from having to hand paint them with POR-15.

The seat box has large flat panels that could have some flex or movement to them over time. How does powder coating handle that?

Weekend Worker

This weekend I patched a couple holes in the rear door from previous water damage. After I got the new metal on I threw a coat of rust preventing primer on and mounted the door with new hinges. I plan on having the inside of the rear door sprayed with Line-X before putting all the guts back inside.

Mounted the spare tire carrier and the roof ladder also.

Took the tires in to be mounted and balanced, but I still need to buy a spare.

Installed gasket material around the rear floor panel and seat box and got them both installed along with the TerraFirma rock sliders. Also installed the battery tray in the seat box, working on the wiring and isolator for a second battery now.

Where did you get that gasket material? I've got gaps in my rear floor and need something like that to seal it up.

Looks like closed cell foam weatherstripping. Any hardware store.

Great job 👍. Make sure that your alloy wheels fit the spare carrier, I have 3 posts looks like yours protruding from my rear door and they fit only steel wheels.

Don't quite understand what you mean by this, is it that they may not be long enough or is it the stud pattern.

Weather stripping from ACE Hardware. Nice thing is it is super cheap, comes in different widths, thicknesses and has an adhesive on one side. I used 3/4 inch wide and 5/16 thick, which matched the stock stuff the closest.

They could be short. The alloy wheel carrier has a flange for the wheel to rest on and 3 short studs. The 3 long studs are usually for steel and has threaded washers for the wheel to rest on, but if they were long - and strong - enough, then it could handle alloy with big rubbers.
