Got some more done this weekend. I think I'm ready to pull the tub. All I need to do now is bribe a bunch of friends with beer to help me do it. Here's how she sits as of now
Not sure if you can tell by the photos but it really needs a lot. Like needs brakes(lines,hoses,rotors, I would guess pads), axles are very rusty(probably could be taken care of though) shocks for sure(RS5000s, think the RS stands for "Rusty ****e"). Guess I'll be looking for axles soon.
Here's the inside. Only issue here is I can't get the Tcase shifter handle off and it is very stuff moving through the selections. I need to take a closer look once the tub is off and see if I can fix it.
The only real issue I had this weekend was getting the steering shaft to collapse so I could remove it(which it didn't collapse but I got it out anyways) and the lowest fender to tub bolt was a bastard, it broke the weld but loose so I had to vise grip it so it would come out. I didn't get a picture of the driver side fender but it's completely toast. Rusted to hell. Ill also be looking for one of them. Along with a billion other things. Who wants to give me some parts so I can get this turd on the road?
Oh and here's some pictures of my buddy Bradley. He's a rescue from SC, they found him on Bradley St in some town, that's how he got the name. He's a little crazy but I love this little guy. Can't wait to take him Jeepin with me.
He's a little ham
He likes to move right before you take a picture so that it's blurry
