Walked out to check on it, checked the fluids and tire pressures, and adjusted one of my new driving lights down a bit. It'll get driven tomorrow, so now I've gotta fight the urge to just take it for a drive (hasn't been started since Saturday).

Pulled the blown engine out of my '99 WJ. Learned those transmission bolts are hard as haities to get access too...one click at a time with my ratchet.

Now have been working on getting the '02 engine out of the donar jeep and I decided I am going to jerk everything out at once. So this afternoon wish me luck in pulling engine, xmission, and xfer all out through engine bay

Today I decided to paint the lower part of my front bumper with bed liner. I think it looks cool! You guys tell me what you think!!

It's getting loaded up on a trailer, and driving it to Tenn to go to Prentice Cooper.

Got the engine out yesterday with some effort...I used a jack to put under the transmission crossmember and lowered it down, but the problem was I put my lift point (comealong on an A-frame) to centered over the motor and my transmission and xfer were pointed down at a 30 degree angle.

my Brother in law and I managed to wrestle it out of the engine bay with a combination of lifting and pushing the jeep at the same time along with the help of a couple of ratchet straps.

So, just in case you ever wondered if it will all come out...it will especially if you have a engine balancer on your hoist system...without it you have lots of lifting on your part.

in hindsight it may have been easier to pull front axle and drop engine/trans/xfer on the ground and then pull out while it rests on a board or something!

now your thinking!...I could fab a 2x4 box frame with little casters and some plywood on top and it should roll right out from under the rig. I would probably opt for little inflated tires for the coolness factor and you could use it for so much more...like a welder hauler, tool hauler, etc!

I would've pulled the tcase before doing all that. It's not too hard, although awkward to handle, it would probably make a big difference.

Drove it last night for the first time since Saturday. Fired up like a champ after sitting for 5 days.
