when i found it on CL he was asking 1500 and the pictures made it look much better than it was, so when i got it i figured it runs and its got a good frame, how bad can it be? well i get it home via trailer as it was in PA and i am in VA. I give it a tune up and notice it still runs like crap and its leaking oil from what is probably the rear main seal. so i started by ordering a full seal/gasket set for $80 and a new weber.

oh and i got my vanity veteran 79 4wd plates that day as you can see in the picture.

yesterday night i got my por 15 and painted the frame, today i got the new tub mounted which needed no work as the PO had already coated the bottom and he lined the interior with something (i will be herculining later). side story, i live on a military post and a couple years ago the govt thought it smart to privatize housing (make it run by a civilian company) well while i had it down to the frame and was welding on the new body mounts a real gem of a lady comes by to tell me i cant work on my car in my driveway which i pay 1600 a month for and have till monday to move it. so i have till monday to get it looking like a running jeep, or make it a running jeep. I hope the second option. So i have the new tub mounted, and the engine halfway reassembled and started on the painless wiring harness. I am not going to make much progress over the next several days as i work 5 pm - 5 am and its supposed to rain almost everyday. but i will keep you posted.

the height difference on the tub is amazing, the old mounts were so worn out that going from those to the 1" bl mounts makes it look jacked

i should have some updated pics tomorrow with at least the new tub mounted if not more done visually

ok so as of now everything body wise is bolted back up.

new tub, new fenders, new 1" body mounts, new dash with all gauges.

all that is left is to finish the wiring harness, reinstall the timing chain/cover and pulleys, bolt up the new gas tank, and the steering column.

will have pictures tomorrow

it lives! i finished the rebuild today and drove it a bit. it is now green/black/gray/blue and is about 98% rust free and runs good. now over time i will run new brake and gas lines, swap the heater into the new tub, and of course several other things. but it runs and drives and i am very happy about that. pictures to come
