Thursdays "snow" that shut the city down for 3 hours...
Now, that is a funny picture right there! I know it would stop everything in the warmer climates but you have seen pictures of our snow. However, this year we don't have too much snow but it has been disgustingly cold. Looks like the weather is going to turn by the weekend.
What are the thoughts for the trim piece under the dash?
I'm guessing Mavrick sold the YJ and bought another corvette to restore. Or maybe not and he is just busy with other stuff? Anyway, I am still waiting for some video of the perfecty restored red YJ with all of its powder coated nuts and bolts doing a nice smokey burnout! At least his work motivated me to finish my LT1 conversion and I have had some fun smoking the 20 year-old 33's on my YJ...4 years later of course.
I am still alive with the project...lol I miss my JF buddys, I changed positions in Time Warner 5 months ago..the learning curve has kept be busy along with spring planting...blah, blah and blah...I'm done with setting completion dates...i never meet them, it will happen when it happens...
Fast forward to present day, the last time I was making strides...then a wiring issues under dash gave me the finger.... had to strip it all back down. I started a redesign in the dash last month, been to busy to post. I'm done with the dash redesign and will begin troubleshooting why none of the lights worked in Feb when I put everything back together.
I cut out the center portion and mounted the cluster on a "glove box" door. It is on hinges so it will open up and give me access to behind the dash wiring..23" by 11". I will be more active with updates....even the forum admin sent me a message that they missed me...lol
My problem is I have to many hobby's and to many cars...I'm starting to correct that...the Tahoe is gone, the truck is next...my wife has "taken" over the JK and I promised her I would not buy anything else till this project was complete!!
Great to see you're still at it. I get excited every time i see a post on your thread. Three years and counting since i unscrewed the first bolt on mine. I know how you feel. My fiance pulled the "we can buy a brand new jeep, a Rubicon or whatever you want, but you have to sell your YJ and get rid of all the parts". I said nothing, gave her a thumbs down and went out to the garage. Haha.....

Hijack! We finally took our first decent road trip to the Ocean City Jeep Jam - about a 2-1/2 hour drive and considerably more than the 20 minute test drives I have been doing. The LT1 was a standout and anyone considering a swap should definitely consider this engine unless mudding and/or driving though deep water is your thing. It has more than enough horsepower and sounds incredible! There were about 800 jeeps signed up for the jam and the otherwise conservative town actually allowed a parade on the beach. Hope to see some travel photos with Mavrick's Jeep soon!
