Today I removed the track bars and swaybars in prep for tomorrow's trip up Forrest lake trial in UNITA national Forrest. I'll be sure to take pics.

So ugly yet so much potential, looking forward to see how you transform this old girl.

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

Here are the pics

In one pic you see 90LSTurbo's CJ getting towed out of the way due to a battery terminal popping off at the trail head and it died. As he turned it off the key broke in the ignition so we had to hot wire it .

Today I fixed all of the vaccum lines going to the front axle , I did not check to see if it will funtion properly but I will some day this week when I get time.
I also stumbled upon the reason I have a misfire at idle and why my Co2 levels are so high to the point where I barley passed emissions testing

Who puts this Garbage in the 4.2l ?
Autolite Platinums Yuck. I wish the Parts store was open after 3pm today I would have bought some champion coopers to put in there. (Guess what I'm doing tomorrow)

Love those wheeling pics! Beautiful! Glad to see the kiddo along!
I have the most fun when I can bring mine along with me too.

I hope you keep it that color. Looks great with the grey interior.

Cheers

I plan on keeping it this color. It may eventually get some tube fenders front and rear

Today I gave The Smurf some new spark plugs , and bumped the timing. It runs much better now there is still a very slight stumble so I will be replacing the wires, cap and rotor this weekend possibly adding a MSD blaster coil aswell. I will also possibly be performing the nutter bypass . and removing majority of the Vacuum lines. Oh and after wheeling on Sunday I noticed that my Under hood light is actually working now !
