I bought some undercoating to throw on there when it gets everything bolted to the frame. I am gonna give it a few good coats before the body gets mounted.
Heres an up to date list of what i have had to replace during this swap.
Rear upper control arms, which i got off a ZJ at the local junk yard.
Complete Prothane Polyurethane Bushings Kit. Black
New Exhaust Manifold, old one had 4 leaks...
Brown Dog Motor Mounts.
New Grade 8 hardware for body mounts and control arms
Replaced the front axle with another dana 30 from a XJ. the brackets on mine were toast.
And i am now waiting on a 2004 steering box since mine is the older model and wont bolt to the new frame.
Hopefully it will be done by saturday. Who knows at this point. Its something new everytime i check with my mechanic. I have searched junk yards, jeep yards, forums and ebay and craiglist like a hawk...Almost done.
