Simple YJ to suit my needs

so I picked this heep up a few months ago. the left motor mount broke, so I drilled the bolts and easy outed them and it happened again so I got the brown dog left mount, problem solved. when the motor fell to the left it broke the radiator so I got a new radiator and thermostat since Id be flushing it anyway. the frame was rotted on the drivers side where the back of the side bar attached so I welded a plate there. As far as plans for it, well, that depends but I just sold the front and rear bumpers as well as the side "nerf" steps. ordered some steel for new bumpers. I need 2 shackles and a 2" receiver front and rear and thats it. I may use the front bumper as an air tank. got a few tops for it hardtop will be re-furbished this summer and this top is for sale, I like the standard top. I also need to find a regular spare tire since it didnt come with one

What brand lift do you have?

lift is a cheapo black diamond (which I regret) and 5/8" boomerang shackles, greasable bolts. I forget the brand of the top, pretty sure its a besttop. pm me if your interested in it.

picked up a cj tailgate since I don't have a stock tire carrier anyway, but I probably wont put it on until I do the rear bumper since I need to be able to tow a small utility trailer for random house stuff.

Made a quick and dirty front bumper. 2x4x.120 stubby. Didnt get the shackle eyes yet so they will go on later. Also didnt clean any slag or make the bottom mounts, I got lazy, ill do it tomorrow. I wanted a receiver in front for a winch and getting trailers off of the boat slip (im not towing a boat with a yj, just jetskis). Switched the top to a regular top for now. I posted the other one on ebay since im having trouble sending and receiving pm's.

ground under the steering wheel. there is a ground that hooks the edge of the dash, right to the right of the e-brake release, a little thin black wire with a loop connector on it. maybe that is off or broken?

I don't feel like working on anything, at this time.

The half top is a Rampage Cab Top and Tonneau combination. the rear window section is removable (Looks similar to a windjammer,but the window zips to the cab top). It requires the original soft top frame.
