The more it sits forward, the better the corners will look. Then all u need is a little massaging of the hood's sharper corners and it'll blend just right. I haven't done that yet since I mite hiline in the near future so I don't wanna work I it unnecessarily. And it still looks fine.

That's without any reshaping.

Looks good. I cut the grill rod mounts off my yj grill and welded them on the tj grill.

Nice. I can tell u put a little work into the hood corners. Did u do anything specific or just a little massaging to round them out? Ill probably end up doing that when I hiline that's why I'm asking.

I reshaped the whole front of the hood, I bent the inner corners down a little to help with the gaps.

I grew up a mustang guy and still have a mid 9second stroked stang but I am bored with it so I started playing with jeeps..I always loved wranglers but all my friends still only build mustangs..Sorry if Clogged up your build thread. Here is a pic of my stang if you want I can delete the pics.. I'm looking to sell the stang this summer to fund my build. I need a new converter and front rims then its gone...

No need to apologize for anything. We're here to talk. Nice stang. I got my 65 this past summer. It's currently sitting on jacks. I gotta cut out most of the rear end and weld in all new metal from the torque box out. Fun... What u mean by needing to get ur yj straight? What's wrong with it? What does it need?

For the longest time I would get both these jeeps mixed up. Almost identical.

replaced the trans but it still shifts funny in third. I rebuilt the t-case but it still makes a high pitch whine in 4h, now the 4.2 has a miss till it is warm and seems to be running very rich. Seems like one step forward and five steps back. gets old when everytime I repare something it does not work right or something else goes wrong..

If ur still having shifting issues u might wanna look at ur slave. As for the noise in 4hi, have u checked ur front ujoints? What about ur diff? Bearings? Seems like u tackled the big jobs before eliminating other possible causes. I e been there too and learned from it. I'd rather spend the time diagnosing. As for the 4.2, is it carbureted? I know those can be a pain...

The case that was in it was bad. The chain was rubbing really bad and caused it to cut into the case. The trans was bought used and after I installed it found it to shift into third with a little grind,not to bad but still does it. I plan on pulling the 8.8 apart and replacing the pinion and axle bearings this coming week.

Just wanted to say thanks your build gives me the inspiration and motivation I need to keep on wrenching. Now I just need to find some local wheelers to go out with.

Today I mounted some LED flood lights to my stinger. The brand is "TUFF". They cost about $50 for the pair without wiring hardware. They're real stout for the price and have great reviews. We'll see how bright they really are on e I wire them up.

Edit: wired them up today. Took a pic in daylight. Ill take a pic at night on Sunday when I go wheeling.

After my last wheeling trip I had some shackle inversion issues when hitting big rock. I have boom shackles but my dumbazz put them on the wrong way. So this would happen:

So I took a few mins to flip them to do it right:

Stupid of me I know, but I thought I'd post this on here as a heads up in case anyone else is... Well... As dumb as I am lol
