Thanks Dave. Your CJ is really starting to shine, Great job.

I wish I had more updates, but unfortunately the MJ is on the back burner for now. I've had some nagging health problems since last fall that have finally caught up with me. I was diagnosed with with severe aortic stenosis, which is a complication from a congenital heart valve defect. The first of my two procedures is scheduled for June 28th.

I really don't like laying my personal life out on the internet, but I've had a lot of people following my build and I wanted all of them to know I hadn't abandoned it. It's just on a temporary hold and Lord willing I'll resume the build later this summer after my recovery.

I would like to say thanks to everyone who's followed my build and for all the supportive comments. I love the Jeep community.

Peace,

Jeff

Thanks Dave. Thanks Shoey.

My surgery is set for Tues the 28th and I got tired of sitting around. After a slow start I got flurry (for me) of small items done yesterday.

Tied up the wiring harness, replaced the broken map sensor plug, and tied up the last of the electrical connections...



Installed the battery leads I fabbed up with Napa military spec terminals and welding cable...



I cannibalized the old vacuum harness and a partial harness from an HO and ran most of the vacuum lines. Still need to run the line to the vacuum ball on the bumper...



Tucked the EGR solenoid/relay in the lower front left corner and fabbed some new vacuum hard lines...



Still need the one vacuum line, a line for the vapor canister and coolant jug and she's done.



I also reconnected the speedo at the T-case and reconnected the parking brake cables under the bed. I started setting the length on the trac bar, but had to quit.

Be back soon.

Jeff

Thanks. Currently I work as a chemical tech for Rexam Beverage Cans America. Prior to that I was a dealership line mechanic for Cadillac, Nissan, Jeep and a bunch of smaller shops.

Back one page 3 you had a pic of a MJ at a junkyard. I Know that MJ is long gone, but im in need of some CJ7 parts and i see there are some other jeeps in background so i assume they have some CJ7s. so i was wandering if you could tell me the adress and if they have good prices. Thanks!!! Nice Build!!!

This is the place in the picture>>>109 U Pull It. They had a couple of CJs the last time I was there. Prices are negotiable.
