Advanced Adapters motor mounts! Used them on two different jeeps, had great results with both jeeps.
As for work done on the jeep, I covered everything up because we are getting a ton of RAIN!!!

Today was pretty wet outside, but I was still able spin wrenches.… got the pitman arm swapped off the old the old p/s box, then picked up a soft top that a friend was getting rid of.

Here is a pic of my other jeep... She is not far off but will take more detailed work then the cj5

Hot damn! You better do that CJ6 justice! I've only ever seen 2 riding around, haha.

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

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
