Thanks everyone

It feels great to have it running just amazing..

Really Im shocked that I came through and finished this. I cant wait to get this off on the trails. There are still some minor issues im dealing with like the engine is still running hot around 220 and climbs if i go above 45mph.

Also i removed the front rotor mud plates. They were rusted and rubbing and creating smoke...

As for now im enjoying this weather and the doors off of my car

Every young boy should build a jeep... Think im going to make that my new signature lol

Well, the bad news is im still having problems with over heating and other things like when i drive it for a while it wont have any power when im in forth. And when i get into first its tough to get it going...like the brakes are on or something and it was really driving hard to the right

There are alot of little things i need to do to the car now and just dont have time. Its sitting in the garage patiently waiting to get fixing and tuned up.

Getting excited to do some wheeling and fishing. Summers almost here

Thanks for the kind words! Yea another form of transportation is a must if you plan on doing a build like that. Let me know how it goes. I just got back from the cliffs offroad and I need to do some work myself. I don't think jeeps are ever really finished lol.

After about a month I finally installed my rebuilt transfer case. Had to get a new chain, shift and mode fork and got a rebuild kit. Got the kit from southwest gear and the chain from quad.

Also had to replace u joints on my drive shafts. Got spicers from qtec.

It should have taken about a full day about to finish it, but I hade to wait for parts and the money.

This was also my first time repairing a tcase n installing u joints.

Rebuild + u joints cost me around $350

Hey thanks!

Yeah I love the car. Can't imagine life without a jeep now lol.

I was considering a 650. Maybe as a second bike now though. The 250 was just so dang cheap tho

Looks good! If you have a loss of power with overheating check for a clogged cat or bad o2 sensor. Also could be a collapsed hose or I've even seen bad radiator caps cause overheating. Hopefully it's not the notorious head gasket. I haven't been through the whole thread yet, but could it be something like incorrect belt routing? I've had brand new thermostats be bad. Just tossing ideas out there...

After reading more of your thread I'm convinced it is clogged cat or o2 sensor. If it's a sensor it has thrown a code. Look here for how to check: http://www.jedi.com/obiwan/jeep/dtc.html
