I was able to cut out the rotted out frame today, and welded in a new piece of 2x4 box. The new piece was small enough to slip into the existing frame rail and then I added a couple doublers to reinforce the welds.

It was actually a lot of fun!

I pulled the transmission out by myself, slowly. Wasn't that difficult. I used a ratchet tie down strap across the frame rails as a safety in case it fell. I didn't want it hitting the floor and breaking the bell housing. The trans is trash so that wasn't important. I just didn't want to get hurt.
Now to put the new one in by myself. Me thinks it may be a bit more of a challenge. .

I hated doing that. I had to use a couple 2x4s on the sport bar and slowly raise it up through the hole for the shifters. Then lie under it and try and try and try and try to get the damn thing to slide back in...

Edit: sadly, I may need to do that again soon, I can see oil slowly making its way out from between motor and bell housing rear main seal needs swapping I guess

Finally got the 4.7 L WJ power steerin pump adapted and working in my 4.0 yj. My steering is so much tighter and more responsive, also my pump no longer whines offroad. I had 3 diff stock pumps and all of them whined while turning in 4wd. This pump turns easier, spins back faster, and makes no noises. It is rated for 500 psi more than our stock pump. I took it offroad to check n my turning is best it's been since I've owned the jeep. The pump took some serious figuring out to get it in perfect and everything to line up correctly with my stock bracket/manifold. Xj guys usually swap to the newer intake manifold and bracket for the pump in order to use the pump on their Cherokees. I wanted to keep my stock adjuster/bracket for the belt.

Murphy's Law....
I was putting a second coat of paint on my Riddler D30 cover. I set it on a piece of cardboard in the yard.
I got a nice, even coat on it, no runs, done. I was letting it dry in the sunshine and went back into the garage to clean up the tools a bit.
Suddenly I hear "clank clank clank".... The cardboard is on the other side of the driveway and the cover is paint side down on the driveway.
Nice scuffs, and paint on the driveway. Goooood.
Start over.

I did the same thing with my old stock air cleaner on the 4.2. It looked great...until the wind carried it 20 feet into yard. Then it was covered in grass.

Seeing these pictures makes me so glad I got my jeep from NORCAL...it still looks brand new after 23 years.

Yeah mine was in SoCal all it's life. No rust anywhere.
I am taking it to the midwest to sell it.

Buy a cheap transmission jack. More than worth its weight.

No doubt. Once you use one you'll be kicking yourself for not having used one before.

Yep, even for quick things like transmission mount changes its worth having one. Too easy.

The nearest Harbor Freight is a loooong way from here, for now. Next week the new one opens about four miles from here.
Meanwhile, I will just get some help putting it in. No biggie.
I borrowed a trans jack a long time ago for my son's YJ. It was handy. I will probably buy one during the grand opening sale. One of the few tools I don't have.
