i filled the master cylinder's small reservoir (the rear brakes) cause I could barely stop and didn't need to have a wreck.

After wrestling with it for 4 days, we finally finished installing a new cowl seal, 4x6 speakers in the dash, sirius radio, and a new cd player.

Yesterday, I starting searching for a vacuum leak somewhere in the emissions. Honestly, I swear I'm just going to yank out all the old tubing and put new stuff in. I did however find out that the EGR value is bad and not to mention has anyone ever really read the Haynes manual for Wranglers? Some of the directions are really bad and there are still things on the engine that I don't know what they are. tomorrow I'km back under the hood going over the vacuum/emission system.

Finished modifying the skid to mount a transmission mount for the TF727. Took two driveshafts and created one for the rear. Now my 89YJ can move under it's own power for the first time since I've owned it. It's off to the muffler shop tomorrow for a simple muffler install. Then all weekend will be test drives and more work.
