pulled both front axle shafts, hubs, steering knuckles and tie rod arms off the Cherokee then hauled it off to scrap today, on way home stopped at a yard sale and picked up a nice timing lite for 5 bucks, my father dropped off his explorer yesterday, will be pulling the 8.8 out of it soon

made some more progress on the floors, my wife surprised me with a brand new runva 12500 lb. winch, just have to get a winch plate for it now, looks like I need to kick it in high gear and get the jeep together so I can use it

picked up a 4wd 727 auto from a 86 dodge 1/2 ton, was bolted to a 360, should work great for the jeep, i kept the shifter, cable and bracket form the parts cherokee so i think i can make the cable shifter work on the 727, still have to get the sye kit for the transfer case and im gonna see about getting a 6 pinion planetary and a wider chain for the 231, i already have a front shaft from a cherokee so i will just have to get it shortened once its all together

Seems like everybody out there patches all the same areas. Lol. Looks good! Why grind off the trackbar mounts?
