A hand full of measurements and it was time for the next no turning back milestone. Pulled the powertrain again. Spun the Jeep around. Pulled the front axle. Literally walked in the house, answered an email asking about a Dana 30 and my axle and springs were gone in a couple hours along with a disk braked Ford 9" I had up for sale.
Found the rust on this thing. Behind the windshield hinges on both sides is bad enough that I'm going to cut it out and replace. You'd think as common as it is for this area to be rusted that the aftermarket would have a pre-made patch panel, seeing as they have them for everywhere else that "might" have rust and this area is pretty much a given.
