Well Johnny, that's why you get er running first, the running gear of any vehicle is the biggest and costliest variable in the whole vehicle.
Hang in there bud, you will get it all figured out and working the way it should. It's frustrating, but patience and determination will prevail and it will be such a sweet ride when it's done. Building Jeeps is an endeavor of challenges, setbacks and triumphs, with ultimate success and satisfaction. In the end it is more than worth it

Well I fixed the starter issue, and the water pump looks like its not leaking. I may go ahead and replace it while I have the radiator out inspecting it.

She revs as far as you want to push her now. Sounds sweet, I have another video I will edit tonight.

Now what I am having a hard time finding are the t case side front driveshaft bolts. I need a total of 8.


Basically I need to connect a 12v with the key on to the trans harness, hook up the front DS and I can pull the Jeep out of the garage under its own power sitting on a milk crate.

Going to replace the brake booster in the morning and tinker with some of the other things tomorrow. If I can't find a set of the bolts local today or tomorrow I will just order them Monday from the dealer.

Might see the occasional post wash shot from the yard. Or the local light pole humping at the mall. But my days of lawn crawling are over.

That looks like a fun run , and its right behind where I am working . Might drive the LJ back out to get the trailer depending on how the timing works out .
