It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

if i remember correctly, dont take the alternator out, just move it, get the plugs and the basic stuff covering them off and then they wiggle out. i cant really picture my engine in my head right now since ive been UNDER it since 10am re-welding the claytons and lifting the gas tank. let me get my manual outta the jeep once i muster the courage to go outside in the cold and i'll pm you about it or you can just call me

Congrats on the lockers. Should be fun. Are those on command lockers or are they just locked all the time? Creeped out?
