Thanks, I appreciate the comments. I'm feeling better than I have in years, and I started back to work on the MJ yesterday. I hope to have it on the road worthy by mid October.

Dude, that MJ looks amazing , could have just come off the production line. Keep it up

When my Jeep stops making strange noises, I become concerned. That usually means I have to go back and find whatever fell off.

No real updates, had some unrelated setbacks. The MJ's still here, just waiting on me.

Started back in on the MJ Monday. Been finishing up under the hood, and taking note of other stuff to finish up. Took off this morning to the PullaPart mostly for a washer bottle, but ended up with a few other goodies. Near mint rear bumper. $40...



After a quick clean...



and nice off white tailgate with just a few small dings in it. $37...

Glad to see you're back at it. You've been missed. I'm looking forward to seeing some more progress on the MJ.

Usual setbacks. Fairly new OE style radiator has a sprung leak. The only old part in the cooling system. My fault for being a tight a** and not replacing it...



New two row all metal radiator from a local parts house, I'll put in tomorrow before work...
