Worked hard today to get the front axle in. Don't have the track bar or drag link but, I do have the tie rod. I think that imma put engine in and see if I can fit a four link up front. A couple questions

Still need that track bar question answered.

What's the best way to extend the steering linkage?

I got the engine put in today, well, mounted on the mounts anyway. Gotta figure out how im going to do the cross member. I decided to use the PTO plates on the transmission. I am not sure if I should connect the two plates or if the bolts will be fine.

Well, following my complete failure of putting a cross member using PTO covers on the transmission, I drilled a hole through the adapter and used dom tubing. It works.. to hold to engine.

I had Tomb Raider cut me up a bracket to use with my np205. JB custom fab made my triple stick shifter for my future under drive. So far their parts are okay, but im disappointed i couldn't use their bracket for mine because of the vss.

I got the gas tank installed, sits perfect, was made out of 12 gauge, that plus the 3/16 skid should be plenty thick.

with the body on, harness wired (except fuel pump)

Grill and radiator mounted but not hooked up.



Need to fabricate center support for grill
install winch
run brake and gas lines
finish fuel pump harness
bolt on hood
radiator hoses
battery
Seats
drive shafts.

and im ready to take for first drive.

Lets see some of the guitars you build out of your shop, please.

Sorry for the hijack.

Almost depressing... Guitars garter more attention then the jeep.

Regardless, I got the pedal breaks installed, I gotta find a reservoir that will bolt to the hand brake before I can get that.

Bled the clutch

I have the fun times of hooking up fuel lines and my gauges tomorrow.

Please don't take my interest in the guitars as a slight to you or the Jeep...Quite the contrary, your work on the Jeep is top notch, and I applaud you for it. But I am a guitar junky, and needed a fix. You've done a great job on the axes as well.

I'm obviously not taking enough pictures of the jeep. Top notch is far far away. I just hope it's over built and works
