One of the guy's I used to wheel with now and again got bit by the EMC bug also and spend some time, money and love on his trusty old YJ
Went from this

Curious how well the engine in that old girl will hold up to all the abuse

That looks like Sledge Hammer. Whitelightning battled through Georgies crack, had a heck of a time but made it.
Then we did Hammerdown and the extension of it, then Grinder, after that we loaded the Jeeps back up and headed to the Hammers.
Fooled around on the Gatekeeper of JackHammer, got Nate to crawl up it too. After that we headed to SledgeHammer, turned into a bit of winching work, but got finished with the Jeeps in one piece. Whitelightning isn't as pretty as it used to be, but Nate was pretty much grinning ear to ear all day.

Soft doors might work, the seats were covered with a tarp and bagged my monitor.
If this rain keeps up I'll tarp the whole Jeep. Hoping it will be dry on Sunday, itching to head back to the Hammers
