Thanks man. It's a slow process, but it's closer.


Sorry for the late update JF. Been busy with school, work, and trying to fit jeep time in.






Pile of jeep parts.


Painted a few parts, installed them this week. Got mostly everything torqued for the rear, except control arms.
Trying to fix the exhaust, due to the tummy tuck, where the muffler connects to the flange, there's a little gap at the top. Been prying the hell out of it to make it fit.

Picked up a yellow grill with a small dent for a good deal, also a green fender. Going to paint the grill black so it won't look too dumb. Put the "new" wheels/tires on.

Tomorrow hopefully I get the exhaust issue fixed and maybe, just maybe I can get the body over.

As I said, I would get the body over this week.....




Ordered a couple more parts today, Novak cable shifter, and Blue monkey speedo healer.

Congrats on getting her running! There's nothing quite like turning it over for the first time after a major project / engine bay work, and getting that "whew (I didn't totally eff this up!)" feeling. Seems like you've done a great job.

Thank you! I was pretty nervous to start it up. No leaks whatsoever, everything sounds and looks good. Hopefully it stays that way.

Thanks!



UPDATE:

I will be posting pictures in a few days.
I have gotten a good amount of work done on the jeep. Sorry to have neglected the thread everyone, was busy with final exams, working and the week I took off of work I got pretty sick. But in the last bit I have done lots.

Just give me a few more days!

I'd probably buy my Wrangler back if it got totaled out, too. Awesome thread so far!

What's big and white and can't climb trees?


A refrigerator.
