All the under-tub work was completed so I brought the tub in from outside and used the internal frame coating that I had leftover from the frame in the rails on the tub.

Got the tub in place with a little help from the wife . That is where I am currently. Probably go to the hardware store for some bolts today and get er tightened down.

Good work so far! I read back on post 58 or so something about the tracbars. Might I be the first to suggest throwing them in the trash? the jeep will ride and flex 10x better without them. truly un-needed on a yj.
Keep it up!

Put the pedals and the ductwork in today. Had to make an adapter plate for the reserviour. It appears they vary from 89 to 95 so mine wouldn't bolt up to the new firewall.

I had to freehand the hole for the plunger using the torch. I didn't have anything big enough to make that opening.

There she is put away all snug. I'm praying that the negative 3/16" of travel doesn't affect the slave cylinder operation.

Thanks. I have been asking about that whenever I come across somebody that mentions they threw the tracbars in the trash. I can do some AutoCAD, but I got a buddy that is really good at SolidWorks and said he'd have to draw it on that to see the effects. I don't think I need to get that involved with it, but since I am putting this back together, I figure it's just a couple bolts to remove to take them off another day after its done. I'd like to ride it for a while with them, then remove so I can feel the difference.

Here is one thats already made. besides the obvious offroad gain, it will remove alot of the bumpiness of the ride. certain roads that used to feel like a mech bull, the jeep rolls over like a car. Im sure buffalo, NY has some choice road conditions like we do here
Make your own choice though!

yeah, I've seen that diagram. Pretty generic. I think in solidworks you can account actual loading and center of gravities and see the true effects.

Once I get her back on the road ill feel her out in stock form for a lil bit, and then ill take the bars off on a slow day. I haven't drove er since November, so I wouldn't be able to feel the effects so much. If I don't do it that way it will bug me forever not truly knowing the difference! lol.

I hear ya, mine just got back on the road, parked since halloween for "renovations"
I wasnt trying to tell you just to rip them out, Just meant to suggest it is all. It was and still is one of the best things ever done to my jeep!
How is the TBI coming?

Oh yeah, I hear ya man. They'll be coming out, no biggie. I appreciate the conversation.

I rocketed through the tub removal/frame repair and painting/tub install. I think like 6 weeks? (took some time off work). The tbi is not going as fast. The existing wiring involves a lot of head scratching too. The tbi system is laid out on the jeep right now. TB mounted, a few sensors screwed in, fuel pump block off plate mounted, VSS in place....

The existing wiring is kinda holding me up right now. Wiring never was something I enjoyed.

So, the tbi conversion set me back a couple of weeks. I dove right into it when I should have done a lot more reading before starting. But I'm a learn with my hands kind of guy, so that's how it goes I guess. Long story short the injectors were flooding the engine. But I didn't know what a normal spray pattern looks like, so even though I knew it was flooding, I did not know how to trace the issue. Since I had to take the wiring harness off the engine a couple times to go through it and look for errors, I didn't route any wiring neatly the last time I was working on it. Well I was getting wire interference off the coil and sparkplug wires which was causing the injectors to dump a hell of a lot more gas than normal. After the issue was found it starts up and purrs. Runs really good!
My only issue was that I have smoke coming from where the manifolds mate to the cylinder head. So I took this as a good time to clean and paint the engine. I didn't plan on doing any "dress up" work since I'm not out for under-the-hood looks, but I'm really glad I did.
I think my smoking issue is from the #11 cylinder head bolt. Back in July of last year; when I lost a nut in the carburetor, I want to say that I used threadlocker on that bolt, which wouldn't be the right thing to use.
