The reason I removed it was to learn how everything goes together and how to get to the heater core. I also bought it to practice modifying on for putting a double din head unit in my jeep.
I want to hook a front camera to the double din so I can see when going over hills and also have a killer system.

I also received 120 pounds of Second Skin sound deadening material for installing in my jeep.

Junkyard today:
Liftgate Support Struts $11.99 ea.
Dash molding with vents $11.99
Taillights $24.99 ea.
Tow hooks $6.99 ea.
Tow hook brackets $11.99 ea.
Dash pad $39.99
You could have gotten NEW struts for the same price at rock auto

Helped orvis1997 install a 2in bb in his 1997 orvis with upcountry. Then sold him the gy authorities and black rocks off the mutt. Looks very nice, hopefully he posts some pics lol.

I checked Rock Auto and with shipping they would be about $10 more than what I paid.

The ones I got are Omix-Ada and they sell for around $24 ea.
What surprised me was when I opened the tailgate it continued going up by itself, not sure if this is normal.
My jeep's tailgate just stays where you leave it and when it's cold out it doesn't stay up easy.

Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

Fixed my heater core hose. Tried to put new battery terminals on, but they weren't ready, so I threw them out. Also tried to put my shaft on, but it didn't wanna go on. so after all that epic failness, I went for a drive..

I am pretty sure that it was some kind of bucket crane that the top was salvaged on. That large circle in the center has gear teeth on it. There were hydraulic lines running all around it and some controls on one end. It looks really old. It was an old mining area with a lot of derelict leftovers. We hauled butt because we discovered a large number of bees. There are africanized bees around here and they are so aggressive that they will attack the vehicle.

That smashed truck was farther down than it looks in that pic. Here is a non zoomed pic. It was fun to shoot at.
