The temp gauge isnt working now, but the t-stat is opening and all is well. Im probably gonna get a cheap mechanical gauge set because i dont trust the electric ones anyway. I just ordered the correct shims for the rear so hopefully i'll have em by the end of the week. I got a few pictures but it was dark so they kinda suck.

so i started checking out my fenders and got a little disappointed. there pretty bad and i need to get this thing on the road like yesterday. I checked out the fenders i took off(cut off) the red parts jeep, they're worse. but i thought about buying a set of them flat fender deal things there soon. but ive got two sets of junk fenders, so for now im cleaning up the not as bad original fenders and gonna rattle can black them, not gonna worry bout bodywork or anything, they aint worth the time to me. Its temporary, this winter im going to make my own flat fenders from the rusted out fenders from the parts jeep. hopefully I'll have this thing looking like a jeep and set to go (minus the shocks) this weekend.

The genright $109 tube fender kit wasn't that hard to install. It is strong as hell too. I have pictures of my install in my rebuild thread.

today I installed the correct shims in the rear, a huge improvement in driveshaft angle. I got the rubicon express 8* shims, i had to drill the holes out a bit bigger for the center pins on the bds springs. I put the fenders and hood on. It even moved under its own power today, not very far its kinda blocked in right now. my list of things to do to get it on the road is getting smaller. I might just be driving it by my birthday lol. im not gonna know what to do with my weekends anymore lol.

ordered my shocks today, i got the procomp es1000's. ive heard mixed reviews, they were cheap and i plan on replacing them with something better next year. I have also been told that most of the hydro shocks are basically the same whether it be procomp, skyjacker, rough country, etc. Im really getting excited about finally driving this thing again. oh and i finally bought batteries for my camera so pics will definitely be up tomorrow

on friday night i got the roll bar fitting right. the older style bar didnt quite line up right in the 95 tub. i just egged out the holes a bit. saterday i welded the bar in, herculined the floor, put the seats back in. pretty much finished up just about everything. this morning i changed u joints in the rear shaft and painted it and put it in. then bled the brakes and took it for a ride up and down the driveway a few times, I havent got my shocks yet. hopefully tomarrow or tues. i need to get insurance back on it too.

the build is gonna slow down a bit till spring, but I should have the tube fenders done by the end of next month. Its driveable now and I cant spend any more money on it right now. after Christmas I will buy bumpers for it and make my spare tire mount that will take the place of the rear seat. hopefully spring comes quick, I want to paint this thing

Nice job.
I've got to say that's also the first time I've ever seen an engine hoist attached to a pallet jack before.
Unique idea for sure! Looks like it works great for setting an engine, trans and transfer combo down on and moving around!

yeah it works great, we built it because all the street rods we build are so low the regular hoist doesnt fit. it maneuvers real nice too with alot of weight on it.
