Brown Santa stopped by today. Dropped of my transfer case, and my order from Rock Auto. All I am waiting on now is my derale trans cooler and power steering cooler, they are scheduled to be here on Wednesday.

Should have a good picture update on Thursday. Finished the YJ filler install tonight, I can actually put gas in her now.

Details on the YJ fuel filler, please. I've been mulling some ideas over in my head for the past few days related to this...

Is it not possible for you, or not possible for any TJ?

It would have required more work than I wanted to get into. Probably a CJ filler neck and a YJ bezel, some custom hose work.

I just did not want to deal with all that right now.

My yj body is on a tj frame. I am using a tj fuel tank. I had a heck of a time getting the filler hose figured out different diameters between the tj and yj stuff!

I used the TJ filler neck cut down 2" then welded back together with the vent relocated that way my hoses are all the same sizes. It worked out real nice.

Could I not just use a YJ filler neck and bezel with a TJ tank? I have a YJ sitting in my driveway right now and it seems like the tanks are in almost the same positions

I figure a safe bet would be an average of 10 hrs a week for 14 months is a good estimate.

Project has taken 21 months so far.

Thanks, the next week or so is going to be pretty emotional. It finally hit me Saturday how much of a project this is. I was looking at the almost complete Jeep and noticing there is only a handful of things I did not build myself or modify to fit my needs.

Sent from my iPod touch from Top of the World!
Wow! Congrats on coming this far and not giving up! I did a similar thing for my first car. I couldn't afford much so I bought an old camaro for $100 when I was 14 and spent 2 years restoring it using junk yard parts and a lot of sweat equity. It was quite a feeling of accomplishment at the end. So I know how you're feeling now and especially once it's done!

Great work.

Thanks, I have almost given up many times.

Got the derale coolers today. Took about 20 min to figure out the mounting brackets I need to make to install them.

Got the transfercase in and the rear DS measured . Anyone have a 33" CV shaft laying around they want to get rid of?

I use XJ front drive shafts and cut them down for my rears! Cheap and effective. I have 3 spares in the garage!

I have a XJ front shaft, what's the easiest way to cut it down? It's 36-37 inches long now, with a new CV kit in it.

Grind the weld at the yoke and cut it to the length you need and slip the yoke back on and check it a few times then buzz it up.
