- Mark every wire and hose (at both ends of each) with masking tape and a sharpie so you know where everything goes.

- Also, bag and tag all bolts removed.

- Place cardboard and or kitty litter on the garage floor under the jeep to catch the oil and coolant that's going to come out when you pull the engine.

- When the motor is out, why not pressure wash the engine bay? Make it look nice.

- Are you going to disassemble the block?
I used to own two CJ's...Perhaps a 3rd is in the future?

i second that, pressure wash the bay good, fix any rusted spots, degrease the piss out of it and then paint the prick.... it might take you an extra couple days or a weekend. but when the engines in it , it will look perfect... mabe even tidy up the wiring a little

theres alot of waires in my engine room without loom covering it, im gonna get some and cover all the wires to tidy it up some.
