Hey, I like that CYJT. Ah, would have liked you to have seen it drive after being here for the engine start up, but it was nice to have Jon and Frank see it move for the first time.

Thursday night, well I doubt it but I hope to have it very close. The front fenders and the rear pinion seal angle will lily be the stragglers.

Will

A little work this afternoon. I installed the Winch Hook Isolator and Front License Plate. I also installed the rear fender flares. I cleaned up the rear drive shaft and installed the new U-Joint, and measured the rear pinion angle. The initial measurement shows 9 difference, but it doesn't look like that much in the photo. I'll re-measure before I order a shim.

Wow, it doesn't look like there is much contact with splines on the slip yoke. Are you going to be using a double cardan shaft in the rear.

No, I'm going to shim the rear axle to take care of the alignment. At full drop I have 2-1/8" spline engagement. That appears to be in line with the minimum recommendations of 2" or 1.5 x the shaft OD (1.375 OD or a min spline of 2-1/16").

The pix below was an early test fit on spline engagement.

Started on the front fender modifications. Since I'm going to just go with the TJ flares for now, and make my tube fenders later, I'm trimming the front fenders close to what I'll need in the future that will still allow me to install the flares. The TJ Flare will extend further rearward than I plan on, so there will be some fender exposed inside the wheel well. I'll also have to shorten the flares front overhang to align with the bottom of the YJ fender. I picked up and installed the windshield. I then installed the sound bar and bikini top. I also installed the rear tail lights and swaybar disconnect links. A lot of fender work left, but that is where the majority of the work is left to do.

Worked on the fenders again today. Finished the drivers fender cut and patched the rusted areas. I also started on the passengers side fender, fortunately it's not as rusted.

Finished the fender modifications and repairs, as well as the final fit and attachment points for the TJ Fender Flares. I've not got the bare steel on the fenders primed, and will likely spend tomorrow sanding, filling, repeating in preparation for what I hope is painting the next day.

;-) has Gabrielle been out in the shop, quite the artist.
Haven't seen her in a while, she must be about 12 or 13?
And man those flares look wide .
BTW Will, the YJ hasn't been back for 1.5 weeks.
I've put around 450 miles on the Rubicon, it's more like driving a car than a Jeep. I guess that can be expected when you've been DDing a CJ for 4 or 5 years .

Naw, she's too much of a girl at this point. She did place 2nd in the District Spelling Bee tonight! Yep, she will be 13 in May.

Yea, the ones from my son-in-law turned out to be the wider TJ flares, but they seem to work well. Not my long term plan for flares, but they should get me by for a while, perhaps even for a while after I get around to doing an axle swap.

Ah, are you going through width-drawls in not having seen the YJ, so sad? Yea, those coil springs probably have a lot to do with it. Don't get too used to it, the off road season will be here soon.

Will

One thing I did notice was the Preformance between the YJ and TJ , they have the same basic engine but different trannys (3 vs 4 speed) and the YJ had 3.07 gears. With the 4.10 in the TJ it's quite a bit faster on take off. I haven't checked the ratios in the transmissions so that may add to the difference .

So you drew the face on the cardboard?

Bill
From what you've told me , Im not surprised about the spelling bee win

The 4.10's regardless of the tranny will make a real difference in the seat of the pants.

Naw, I cropped it in from a pix I found to hide some odd things in the pix.

Yea, she's a smart cookie. Only 12 and in 8th grade, and getting straight A's. We are so proud of her.

Well, started out the sanding, filling, sanding, repeating. However the third coat of body filler didn't set up very fast, and I eventually gave up, and scraped it off and re-applied. Apparently I didn't get enough hardener in it. While I was waiting I did install the mirrors, and started the rear axle shim install. Just need the longer spring pack bolts to finish the shim installation.

Long Day of sanding, prepping and painting on the front fenders. Outer Color paint is on, now to paint the engine side gloss, and the fender wells black. While waiting on the fill primer to dry, I tackled the rear pinion shim installation. I had a 9 misalignment and bought 6 shims to get it close. Well, with the 6 shims, the rotation of the pinion also moved it up approximately 1-2/3". This meant the pinion angle was now approximately 1 too for in the other direction! So after some measuring and drawing, I've discovered to correct my 9 angle issue, I only need 4 shims. This will bring the pinion to within approximately 2 of being aligned, which is about perfect. If I then add the 1" longer shackles it should be about 1.5 off, still in the correct direction and acceptable.

Well, I replaced the front axle U-Joint that was bad. Had to go back to O'Reilly's to get a good complete U-Joint, but while I was there I also picked up the needed wiper blades. I also painted the inside of the fenders black, and the engine side Gloss Tan. Additionally I also connected (not mounted yet) the marine amp for playing music from my phone or MP3 player. Tomorrow I hope to install the fenders, wiper blades and attach the Jeep decals. That will leave me with needing the front fender side lights to be legal.

Connected the Heater Hoses, Installed the Wipers. I also installed the front fender flares, and then the front Fenders. WOW, are these fenders difficult and challenging to attach. I also attached the guard for the air filter. I tried to apply the "Jeep" Decals I ordered, but they were in no way the proper font/design. Guess I'll have to order a set from a better supplier. Next I need to order the front side lights, so I'm legal and mount the MP3 Amp in/under the dash. I've probably got 460 hours into the Jeep over the last 5 months, with 60% of the time in Body Work and Paint. A lot of fun and learning.
