My OCD wants me to do this and make sure the frame is good and paint with pot 15 or chassis saver

Probably going to have to do this soon. I didn't see anything about unhooking the heater core hoses... I would assume that has to be done, right? Leftlanetruckin, by unhooking the clutch and brake master cylinders at the pedal and pulling them did you completely avoid bleeding when you put them back together?

Thanks

Thats what I did for the clutch. I'm in the middel of a frame swap. Would have done the same for the brakes but had to pull all my lines anyhow.

I pulled the heater core hoses at the tub as well.

Leftlanes wriet up made it smooth sailing!

Sorry, looks like I missed a few replies here.
Looks like all queries have been answered though
Yeah the heater hoses get unhooked from the tub in the engine bay.
The clutch, to be honest, I cant remember too well though, The past few I did got a 4.3/700r4 swap at the same time, so all clutch stuff just got ripped out pretty much.

Thanks for the post. This is my mission this weekend, but with my TJ. I assume they are similar enough. You put a 4.3 in you YJ right? Are you happy with it?

Steering shaft

I know this thread has been idle for a while, however it is the best write-up I've found for tub removal. I'm in the process of revamping my 93 YJ with lift, tires, trans, monstaliner paint job and I am going to give the frame a one over while I wait for parts...

Anyways, I'm stuck trying to get the steering column off.

"unbolt the steering joint at the top joint to free the wheel"

I've taken the out the bolt just above the U-joint, I assume thats what the guide is speaking of, and yet the steering wheel will not budge . Any advice?

Ended up enlisting the help of my neighbor, a last resort as something always ends up broken. We removed the whole steering assembly from the dash only breaking a wiper connecter... But the steering wheel is free lol.

Glad you got it.
You also could have removed the bolts on both ends of the shaft, and removed the steering box from the frame to pull the shaft. I don't know how hard the steering assembly is to remove, but sounds harder than this.

The thing is that these steering shafts are supposed to collapse in the center (like the front driveshaft) but are often rusted solid. And the only way to remove them without cutting, as you found out, is pull one end's mounting.

Wasn't too bad, I'm sure fixing the wire connection will be though. Right now I'm trying to figure out seperating the wiring, everyone mentions remove the large plug from the fire wall beneath the washer tank, but no one mentions the giant wire harness going through the middle upper area of the fire wall. Havn't had much luck with search engines on this, what does everyone usually do with the wire harness? (Can't post picture using my tablet)

I thought that connector was only on the 94, 95. Are you talking about a 12 pin connector?

I ended up disconnecting all the sensors from the motor and draping the whole wire harness over the windshield. Not sure if this is the best method but it's the only option I could see short of disecting the dash. Just trying to get the parking brake cable separated from the frame and the body and I should be homeward bound.

For everyone that did this how long did it take you to remove the tub? I need to take my fenders off already and my hood needs some attention so I should do the tub as well when it's all apart. How long did it take to put it back on as well? Thanks
