started on my axle swap, excited to be running 4.10s! Dropped the rear out, have the replacement sitting under it ready to bolt up. Trashed the brake lines...oops, will have to replace those, but I can get by without rear brakes for awhile...not driving it for the time being anyhow. Should have the front and rear both finished up by tomorrow afternoon. I love working at a dealership...so much easier than dealing with the cold and my pitiful tool collection

Also picked up a CJ hardtop for $50, pretty good deal, the glass hatch is trashed, and it looks as though a retarded 5 year old tried to paint it red, but my body shop is going to spray it black for $80. Not sure how to seal it up attractively, ideas??

Scrubbed down my fabric seats and repainted the the door cards on my half doors. Also taking out all the existing speakers/wiring. I suppose i'm fixing up the interior a bit...

Did you hear about the ice-cream man who was found dead covered in hundreds and thousands?

He topped himself...

Did the SYE and put in a shortened XJ driveshaft. Worked like a charm! Sure am glad my father is a welder/fabricator.

Flush mounted my Factory Tail Lights...quite a challenge with the fuel housing right there!





And did a write-up on how-to:http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/f...ite-up-953970/

(Not a great write-up, but my first and I was happy to do it!)

ALMOST finished my axle swap, everything is in order except for the rear brake lines...anybody have any recommendations for ordering rear brake lines? Just buy a roll of line and bend it out?

It went together fairly seemlesly, really no hangups that I can think of. First time I have made it through a projet without cussing and hitting things, and I did this without a helping hand as well...pretty impressed with myself

Just get a line and bend it. I had to splice a section in to my rear brakes after a grinder mishap.
