How did you drive it home with no engine? LOL

It doesn't look nasty... it looks awesome! How are you going to work on it once you get the body back on though? Looks like a tight fit.

Love the sawzall... old school!

I think I fixed that one for ya.

BTW, what transmission is that?

Ah okay... I can see now in that last pic... the brake master cylinder might cause you problems later. Tube fenders will help. I've always wondered about putting a V8 or a V10 in a Jeep... I think I'd swap to a diesel though.
