sweet. I had a 78 JD trailfire 440 when I was up in NV. Super fun, but it was hard to start and crazy heavy.

Yah this one had a 93" track stock and I put a 121" under her! We got 16" of snow up here in the northern part! I'm glad I put the long track under her! And mine is so light I can lift it with one hand and start it with one hand! Do you have a picture of it?

Installed front door speakers, cargo panel speakers, and started the carpet installation.

Carpet Install COMPLETE!

Finally finished installing the carpet, kick panels, entry/scuff guards, and door to body seals... ALL DONE!

I ended up keeping the old door to body seals. I soaked and scrubbed them with a detailing brush in the tub actually. As mentioned before I also kept the entry/scuff guards. They look like new money after the green pad treatment and new stainless screws I left the center armrest out for now. It is ripped and needs to be replaced. I'm adding a carpeted dash cover to hide/protect the somewhat faded dash. I also need to find a nice console/drink holder type deal to go on the "hump" up front, any suggestions??

Once I finish up those few items the interior is COMPLETE

Now on to the winter wheel restoration project!

Thanks. Mine needs paint bad. Doing that this spring provided I have everything else on the list done.
So are you removing the wood to have it painted, or just working around it?

It's in really good shape(about the only thing) so I am working around it. Wife says its embarrassing to have in our driveway with condo and primer so it's just got to get done. Took it to the mechanic this morning for a leaking transmission line and I think the exhaust has to be completely replaced. It's all rusted and there is a hole between the cat and the muffler

My wood trim is good, my wood vinyl is good except for 2 pieces. I was wondering about having the paint shop work around it(if they would) and then just replace the 2 pieces of vinyl that are bad. Then I run into the whole matching up issue. May as well do it right, once and for all.

New exhaust, huh? The hits keep on coming

No doubt $159 for the new oil trans cooler installed. I got the tailpipe and hangers from walker for $0 so hopefully will install tonight. Hope I don't have to lift the truck it to get the pipe over the axle

Unfortunately the top set if fins were missing as were half of the second row of fins. The 3rd and 4th row were really beat up and starting to fall apart so while the lines were being replaced I put a 6 line heavy duty cooler in it's place

He works for a major auto parts supplier... I'm guessing that's why

I think he should hook up a Jeepforum member discount for us
