Started working on fuel delivery. Ran the original steel fuel line and put new rubber hose and a filter at the pump. Had some old stainless steel wrap and put it on to help keep it from rubbing on anything. Checked the tank and it had alot of rust in it. Cleaned it out and found a small hole. Started to clean that up to fix it and found several other spots that need repair, going to scrap the tank and get a new one.

Front bumper is almost done, cut down the original rear bumper that I screwed up the cuts. Need to add mounting brackets and weld the winch plate to it. A friend may have some angle iron to use, gotta check it out, if not I'll use 1/4" plate.
















This winch is probably overkill, but should work

looking good jkl after useing my winch a lot yesterday i just remembered today it didnt have that angle brace we talked about,but i looked at it and it dont look like it moved,,thankfully..
i was also wondering about my weld thru shackle pins because the tubeing in the front is only 1/8 inch thick,but it had no worries either,,yet,haha
if you would have widened that trail for me i wouldnt have had any problems

Worked a little more on the bumper today, going to wait to do the fairlead mount till I get a winch. Might add two light tabs. Also found a toolbox that had been put up that I'm going to mount behind the rear seat. Needs to be cleaned up and painted.

Haven't had much time to work on the Jeep lately. Worked some overtime, got sick, and been looking into opening another business (Jeep related )

Ordered some chrome block hugger headers and they arrived today.
