Progress: today i got all my leafs completely attached and my skid plate on. I have also determined i am going to get extended shocks for the front. Gave my axles to my uncle who owns a trucking company so he has a shop to press my bearings. Then just have to put on the drum brakes and put them back on. Still need to order e brake cable. Then bend and put on all the other brake lines. Then its on to motor tranny and drive shafts etc. which reminds me i need to order new bell housing and all my clutch stuff.

Sorry i havent had an update in awhile and i should probably post more due to my amount of problems. But i havent made a ton of progress but enough! I have ordered my bellhosuing adapter kit from a/a and will be ordering clutch and flywheel parts today! I got the front axle put on and some steering parts and shocks mocked up! Going to sand and repaint the shocks and put back on also going to start on break lines! Still battling the rear axle but i am in the home stretch. Also my uncle passed away. I know thats 3 direct family members in 4 months. But i got a arc welder, engine lift, a huge snap on tool box, whatever you call a threading tool? Ummm a cutting torch. Which is awesome because i plan on building my front bumper. Also i found a jeep guy who lives right in my town (population 210) so that was pretty cool. And i also have a new rear bumper all hand fabed for 125! ALSO ADDED A FEW FOOTBALL SHOTS! The one was my locker pre game and the other was one of my sacks in the bayside championship game against washington! Final score 41-6 were 3-1!

Sorry to hear about your brother. That's really, really tough.

On the plus side, it seems like you're pretty motivated. I do have a question though. Why would you get rid of a T5 for a T18? Coming from Mustangs, I always like the T5 because it was a very nice shifting transmission. Is it just not well suited to an off-roader?

Also, I really appreciate how ambitious you are on this project. Bent Frame? No big deal, I'll just buy another one! I love it.

Keep up the good work.

Chris

I know there is a great build on here that used sheet metal and just cut out the major rusted areas of the tub. I cant remember the build title tho. If you do a search you might come up with some good info. Good luck with everything man I cant wait to see how it all turns out.

Well i am sitting here thinking. The outside of my frame is in great shape and all coated but the inside has rust aswell i already have alot on it and i am wondering what i should do for that? Take it all apart? Leave it alone and dont worry or coat the inside while it sits just for a little added help? Btw i dont live near salt water and dont plan on going in the beach alot.
