Well I have driven the CJ way more since I have had it longer, but I am using the TJ right now as my daily driver along with my streetbike.

Here is dads jeep next to mine. I helped alot in swapping the ford 302 engine in it. I did alot of the wiring for the EFI.



Here it is cleaned up:



The dash I recently tore apart and replaced the indicators and terminals with new. Paint is hammered rustoleum black.



Engine:



Here is my 1988 F-150

Well I worked more on the CJ. Started scraping the rust off the dash panel and then started tying up wiring. I also started taping the harness up with loom tape. Looks really good. Actually looks like harness now. Sorry no pics since sis has the camera.

The TJ reached the magic number of 144,444 on the odometer!!

I found a great write up on a DIY D300 twin stick. Dimensions for parts and everything! http://www.jeepgod.net/twind300.html

Here would be the shift pattern:

LEFT LEVER
LOW
*
NEUTRAL
*
HIGH


RIGHT LEVER (FRONT OUTPUT)
4WD LOW
*
2WD (front neutral)
*
4WD HIGH

Man you've got some BA trucks. Loving the F150, probably one of the best looking generations of that model IMO.

Thanks, the flat frontend doesn't appeal to me much so I stuck the guard on I had lying around. I repainted the truck with my dad. Its got a full hammered paint job on it, looks pretty neat but not shiny. That was my very first vehicle. CJ was the first jeep.

Changed the oil, greased the suspension and steering, rotated the tires, adjusted the front pinion angle and cleaned her up.

Worked more on my CJ dash. Got the panel painted. Didn't turn out too bad for spraying it in front of the shop. Color is 1986 AMC charcoal metallic.

Ah, your not hijacking at all! This thread is all about these jeeps and us guys talking back and forth. Its all good
Yes that is the stock carrier on the tailgate. It is holding up great! The rubber bumpers are not contacting the tire at all for support BTW, and I made the rear bumper so when the tailgate is shut, the spare tire just barely sits on top of the rear bumper taking some weight off. It works for me though. My tailgate hinges are starting to corrode and lock up on me but that is just those stupid hinges, not the tires weight.

Its nice to hear words like that to keep yourself motivated! Sometimes I wonder if my jeeps are even appealing to the eyes. I am glad to hear someone likes them like I do.

I removed the seats, carpet, center console, seat belts, shifter boots, shifter access panel, and other misc items. I started cleaning up the tub and getting the rollbar ready to remove. Getting closer to my goal
