Haha, don't worry the 6 will get it's fair share of the action. Wish I had taken the time to do a write up on the 6... Way more interesting of a build then this jacked up cj5!!! In other news I pulled the gas tank to have it boiled out. I had to work fast between downpours of this damn rain
Yesterday I put the guts in the advanced adapter.... Had been waiting on a part from A.A., they did me right and got it to me in only a couple of days! So now everything is in the car, I want to hear the motor run and tranny go into gear. I was able to drive the donor, but I just want to see everything work!! After that I am running new fuel and brake lines. I haven't made my mind up on boxing the frame... This isn't going to be a trail rig or getting jumped! Haha, But rather a girl jeep. Before the body goes down the last time,I will need to Address a few more things, paint frame, get gas tank back in, do a little welding under the tub... Stress cracks, make a trac bar, blah blah blah
Nice 6!!! Can't wait to see how the 5 turns out too!

So I spun wrenches again tonight, with the help of a good friend. The motor runs great, the tranny is GREAT and the whole mess shifted into 3rd gear!! So now for tomorrow I will be running everything getting a radiator in there, and getting it to operating temp. After all that I'll be looking for leaks, and pretty much shake down the drivetrain in the driveway!!!
O.k... So I have been really busy! But hey, who isn't busy nowadays!!!!!
I haven't given up on the cj5, cj2a or the cj6. As of now Here's a update!
Cj2a- siting on the side of the house, doesn't really need too much more or less just time!
Cj5- got some stuff off eBay and craigslist i.e. Dash, dash pad, newer windshield frame and some other small stuff.
Cj6- umm well I have come to the conclusion that my 6 needs alot of work and I have way to much going on right now. I have done everything so far by myself. But to do it right I need to spend alot of time with it! We Arnt talking about your normal driveway buildup here! So I have decided to give up my orange cj7 to a friend with a shop, in return for making my cj6 run. I am over the whole 7 thing anyhow!, just isn't as fun as the others.... Besides To many people have 7's and wranglers as it is! Plus I STILL have another cherry 7 on the side yard... Yikes! HAHA
5 more weeks and I'll be back on track!!! With the 5
