Sounds good! Can't wait to work I mind next year. Actually found a Jeep worth doing work to other than just keeping it going!

Cool, this has become an obsession with me. Once I get the YJ done and on the road, I have a 79 CJ7 i gotta tear down and start the total ground up on that. The YJ is gonna be a daily driver for me so I kinda feel im under the gun on it but still trying to do everything rite the first time.

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of working in the cold either. I was able to clean my basement out when I started working on the YJ, so much better.

Was working on the brakes yesterday, had my father in law with me, I put him in the jeep to pump the brakes while I was underneath bleeding the lines. He pumped them and the right rear line sprung a leak. I checked it out and the line has rusted through. Looks like a trip to the store after the holidays for a section on line.
Oh well, just part of the fun, I guess.

Oh brake likes are just a joy! Easy on Jeeps though I have to admit that. Just finished replacing all of the lines 1 by 1 on my other Jeep and then we found another Jeep... Can't wait for that fun all over again lol.

Well, I'm gonna stop by the parts store in the morning when I get off work and pick up a section of line for the brakes. I'm getting antsy, I gotta get this thing done, I miss driving a jeep.

Demonz0, I sat on mine for about 3 or 4 months? money was tight and i had the motor at my buddies shop waiting on the funds to build up, that happened so he rebuilt the motor and I've been doing a little each day. today I got the brakes finished, had to run 3 new lines, but I'd rather do that now than have a problem on the road. Me and Fletch,my 7yo son, bled the brakes and put the wheels on the ole gal. Gonna try and put the exhaust on sunday or at least get it started. I gotta hook up the starter and gonna try starting it up. Paw in law said he would help me with the timing and such. Once I get it running, I plan on starting the body work, I have a cousin for that...lol

Well guys, I tried to turn the engine over tonight. Double checked everything, found an old battery and put it in, went to put the key in the switch and seen that the up shift and the check engine lights on the dash was on. After tring a few different things i checked the starter and thing its toast. Gonna have it checked tomorrow and the battery i put in is a POS. any of you guys have an idea aboutthe lights being on with out the keyu being in the switch?

The code may have to be cleared for the engine light and I've seen people messing up lights in the dash where the lights were mixed up.

A machine has to do that, the kind that plugs in under the dash and reads/clears the codes. Mechanics own them primarily, unless you have one you'd have to go to a shop or pick one up. I know they're expensive or can be expensive.

Try disconnecting the battery over night.
