I used the following thread for the electrical, thermo switch, and coolant tube. Physical mounting I came up with myself.

Got my Tom Wood's NP-242 late style SYE installed today. Going to bring it to work and give her a nice coat of industrial paint, and get to installing it.

Installed the 242. "New" driveshaft. Working, calibrated speedometer. No more transfer case drop.

Are you still planning to install that CJ tailgate?

Yup, still have the CJ tailgate. All painted up and ready to install... just have to get off my *** and do it.

The driveshaft is a custom Spicer unit I got for free. Since I'm only at 2.5" of lift, I figured I could get away without having a CV style shaft. Time will tell if I have vibes (When I eventually register it).

Experimented with patching holes in the body. Over the years and lots of previous owner idiocy, the body has a ton of drilled holes all over it. So I grabbed my mig and 2" die grinder, and got to work. Ended up filling 9 different holes in the back, and there are many more to go.

Forgot to get a before picture, but here's two holes filled, two untouched.



And finished product for now. Came out pretty damn well considering I have about 2 hours of welding under my belt, and first time welding sheet metal.

Finally got around to making a proper spacer for my hand throttle.
Turned it down on a lathe, added a few set screws, and coated it
with black oxide. Finally it has a nice solid feel, and got rid of the
electrical tape spacer I was using







Call me crazy, but I went back to a spice dash. I've changed up a few things and
added some black accents (Painted the dash panel black to give it some contrast,
instead of the interior being saturated with spice). I really like the two-tone approach to a spice interior.

Thanks!

Recent updates:

Ordered a set of .... MetalCloaks! 3 weeks from now should have them installed. Can't wait.

Ordered a 12 circuit fused marine panel for accessories.



Reconditioned my dash lights dimmer (Rheostat) ... A little high grit sand paper and some dielectric grease, it works like a charm now.

Can't wait to see the cloaks. I remember cleaning my dimmer switch. It was quite filthy.

Looks good. I dig YJ's, and a low built one on 35's is just plain cool.

Thanks. Should be on the road very soon, that way I can finally give my transfer case and drive shaft a shakedown run.

Got my new center gauge piece in today, and wasted no time painting it. Going to let it dry over night, then trim off the over spray that cured on the masking tape.
