Took of the TB to clean it out. Still waiting to grab some cleaner to really take it down. I have to go through and replace a bunch of fuel delivery crap over time because I'm getting a misfire. The good news is that the TPS looks like it was already replaced so thats 45 bucks saved.

I've been looking for a frame everywhere to no avail. There's a company down here in cranston, ri called auto rust technicians that makes that frame section replacement. Should cost about as much as the frame replacement if you replace the mid frame rails too, which I'm sure your's aren't doing well. Mine aren't

Hahaha yeah i'm not going to even bother trying to remove the nutserts for the skid. With my luck the tranny would drop and squish my head or something I found two places that have frames I just have to save up like 700 bucks. Hard to do because I'm in college and going for my pilots license all at the same time haha. Gotta love paid internships though

Well I'm definitely headed down the road for the frame swap now. I'm just asking for some opinion on this; should I swap my motor out with a more fresh one while the frame and body are off? It has an exhaust leak from the manifold and it HAD a misfire problem that I think I fixed by cleaning the throttle body and all that. The engine has 180k on it at the moment. I found an engine with 100k on it for 275 on cg.

Okay so I need some help here. I found a frame for 300 but I need to find a way to pick it up (75 miles). I have a 2 door chevy blazer do you think it's too heavy to put on the roof rack haha.

Do you guys think this looks like a good replacement frame? I asked for a few more pictures once the dude gets the tub off at some point before friday.

You think it's in good enough condition though? I know the pictures only tell so much

Hey man, cool Jeep!- Didn't go with the 60 after all? Oh well, always good to network with wheelers in the area. Check out my build sometime.

I'd use that frame for a replacement.
