When it's done lol, great work takes time, what matters that the end of this project is near. Johnny have your wife take a pic of you when you drive it out of the garage. That ought to be one big ole grinning moment, you want a picture of that to remember it

Next week when the rear Yoke gets here. I might post a short flick tomorrow when I pull it out to wash it and clean up the garage.

Then I have to replace the water pump and check the radiator to see why it's leaking. Do some cage building next weekend sometime.

that's a really nice low end for an inline motor. i just may put a real cat in my jeep if i could get it to get deep like that on my v-8.

you will be driving this thing before i get to roll on my d60's. awesome work, this truly is a labor of love. you are a talented man indeed. i just wish the summer had gone differently so i could have gotten down with those tops and doors.

Well guys no Sunday drive for the Jeep today. Still nothing to attach the DS. I did tinker with the trans cooler brackets, finished adjusting the Novak cable shifter, got the reverse lights and turn signals working in the rear.

And there are no Jack stands touching the Jeep in any spot under the Jeep. She is sitting on all four tires ready to drive out with the help of a DS of some kind. I did put a milk crate in the floor of the Jeep and start it up to listen to it purrr.

It's going to be a great week.

Here is the trans cooler and brackets. I mounted it to the bottom of the bed in front of the rear axle.



The dash lighting. I replaced all the old bulbs them with LEDs.



The Savvy taillights.



The Jeep once again on the ground, No jackstands.



The Belly.



Best find of the week, I bought these Isuzu trooper seat tracks from pick a part for 9.99. Best part about it, they bolt directly to the bottom of the MasterCraft seats. All i need to do now is make some seat risers that weld to the bottom of my cage to bolt these to.







Here is the custom exhaust set up, it used to turn and go to the back behind the oil pan. I ended up using the dual 3 port manifolds off the 2000 4.0.





From the front with the radiator and PS cooler installed.







Hydro assist and steering.

I don't even own a jeep anymore
