Frankensteined 99 MJ Build

Hey y'all! Bought this 1986 2.5l 4 speed 4x4 86 Manche for $1000 for a winter project. Figured I'd do a build on her.

Opened the engine bay to see what I was working with. Need to replace the air box and the radiator. It hasn't ran in about a month the PO says.

Pulled the bed off her today. I have some frame rot that I need to get prepped to fix. As well as took that "bull bar", bug shield and steps off.

I'm pulling the driveshaft tomorrow. It seems to have fallen off on the trip home on the trailer.

It's grey but I like the mixup.

Can't figure out where this oils coming from. But it's in the airbox as well. It runs a bit rough. And rapidly spits oil. So not sure if the pcv valve or whatnot Is clogged?

Decided rather then cutting the nice fenders to fit my new bumper. I'll go ahead and do the 1997-2001 front end swap.
