Well, I made a little progress. I have the driver seat brackets done. I have to blow it back apart to paint and I'm obviously going to have to clean the seats, but it fits and has to sit a good six inches taller than my worn out bench. I love it so far and I've only sat in it for about 30 seconds.




Instead of trying to patch all my many holes, someone at work suggested just buying a replacement floor pan. Has anyone had any experience with these? I had some Chinese body panels on other vehicles that didn't fit well, but I figured for a floor it doesn't have to be that close to make it work.

Is what for 4wd? I don't understand your question.

I have seen some VW's with aftermarket floorpans that did good. No experience w/ Jp's. but same concept. Good Luck! Can't wait to see it completed.

Finally got the passenger seat in:


The seats will be cleaned, and the mounting hardware will be painted, but not until I can get the floor finished. Speaking of... I got a new floor pan. I thought it was going to be Chinese metal, but it says "Made in the USA," so that made me happy.

Its obviously not in welded in. I can't weld, so I'm going to have some friends tackle that for me.

Saturday I will be going to pick up my new axles, drive shafts, transmission and transfer case. More details to come.

Well, I finally got the center channel up. I'll probably just cut it about 2/3 of the way back cause the back of the cab is in pretty good shape. Here is what was waiting for me underneath:

Here's a shot of the '95 AX-15 and NP231:

Anybody else notice the missing yoke on the transfer case? I was the one who picked it up and I still didn't see it until I saw the picture. Would it be easier to install the transmission and transfer case separately or bolt them together and then install them?

The floor is on the back burner for now until I can get a little welding help, so I decided to tackle something else. I got my new header painted and on the Jeep. It had all the chrome trim, so I thought I'd try it out for a while.

Please forgive the dying holly bush.

I pulled the bumper and started stripping the chipped/flaking paint so I can paint it again. After that, I'll tackle the flares.

Slight progress. I got the bumper and the flares painted. Here's a lousy picture:

The flares weren't removed before the truck was repainted. In fact, I don't think anything was removed - flares, bumpers, antenna, cab vents, etc. I pulled the mismatched passenger mirror. The screws were rusted and I had to drill them out. I wasn't sure how the mirror mounted so I pulled the door panel to see if there were screws on the back side. There weren't any, but I did find the original build sheet attached to the back of the door panel. Its in remarkably good shape except for the two holes from the arm rest.
