Been working on the Jeep when I can over the last couple of weeks. Got front frame stiffeners, axle brackets and control arms all welded up. Today I changed the freeze plugs and the oil filter adapter o-rings. Tomorrow the plan is to gusset the frame side tracbar mount, weld up the trac bar and get the front axle back underneath the Jeep. Thurs and Fri I'll mess with the little things that need to be done and if everything goes right I should get to drive it by Sunday! Should have some pics tomorrow.

Jealous! Good for you!

Test drive as in no shifters and such though, I assume?

Pics will be necessary.

What's the length of the front XJ driveshaft you have in the rear? A front shaft for mine is a couple inches short.
