Not really an update, more like a set-back.
I decided to rip the diff out again because of the ****ty paint job, remove the shafts etc, and prep it for sandblasting. I did the same with the HP30 I have.

I won't have many updates for a while, I have an exam I have to write for school. Pretty much spending my week off studying.
Thanks for reading.

Lookin' great, too bad about the diff did you possibly recoat outside the window in the directions? Either way sandblasting is the way to go and I'd look into something better than Rustoleum for the undercarriage...

Most likely what happened. I ended up going with Tremclad. Really wish I would have sandblasted the frame the same time.

Here are the diffs:

Only took about 25-35 minutes.

Nice work on the rebuild so far. I've been there and done that. Definately takes a butt load of patience.

Where are you purchasing the parts for your 8274? I just picked one up today and cracked it open...it's in awesome shape. I'm going to order a brake overhaul kit from Gigglepin, but I have a couple of parts I'd like to buy from Warn.

I'm in line for one of those solenoid covers, but I'm going to get rid of the solenoids and mount up an Albright.

I got my parts from warnserviceparts.com

I was thinking of doing that... I might look into it.

Finally found some spare time to get the 4.0L out and swapped over to the new frame.




Next is getting the driveline finished.

Should be studying, but i want this jeep done. I just need to get a new ckp sensor, do the 241 mod to the wiring and final torque. After that, i just need the fuel pump then i can move the body over.

Here are some pics. It has come a long way.

It is true, it looks the same no matter where you go. I live in Calgary.
