Most of the guys on earlycj5.net all praise it. It's half the cost of the Painless kit and they actually produce the kits for painless anyways.
Dang nice man! Wonder what the one for my CJ7 would be...

It's a universal kit. Has all the hookups a jeep would ever need. If you need more you can get the 21 circuit for $15 more. It's only $170. Mine was $189 shipped

Ordered the lower gasket set. Probably going to do tear down tomorrow before because I won't have time on Friday because we're flying to Vegas for the weekend.

Tore down the front end in preparation for replacing some of the gaskets on the engine. Also should make it easier to prep and paint the fenders, hood and grille




I also started on my wheel well notch. It needs to be cleaned up a lot but it's a good start. The sheet metal is so damn thin so I tacked on a 1"wide backing plate to help fill the seam. Not finished yet either

Finished my wheel well notch. Doesn't look like much right now but with some grinding and when I lay down bed coating in the tub it should look a lot better. Tons more room

Got the front of the engine torn down further and also got the passenger side wheel well notch 80% complete.

If I have time to work on it tomorrow I'll be finishing up the body work then prepping for bed coating

Finished my wheel well notch on the passenger side. Only went 2" back on this side. Probably should have went 3" but that's okay. Still tons more room





Started to prep the rear floor panel for reinforcement



New rear section welded in



Mocked up



Tacked in



I'll try and finish the rest up this weekend. Then it's prepping the tub for bed liner!

Didn't get much done this weekend but got a little done

Finished welding my rear floor then laid down some bondo smooth out some areas

Mid process


Stripped the front half of the floor. Now I just need to get down to a paintable surface


Got my hood stripped and ready for paint


Won't be doing much this week because I'm going out of town this weekend but I'm hoping to finish my engine work and strip the firewall and paint it. Then finish prepping the tub for bed liner and hopefully get that laid down shortly after. It should a lot more complete by the end of the month

It's going good!! I like how you pulled the fender back for the notch. But it bugs me that your seats don't sit even!!

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Had to re-fabricate a mount for the cage because of the wheel well notch so I welded that up today. Welds aren't the prettiest but they will do

I also sat down and made a list of everything I need to get it back where I want it before I start driving it and taking it on trails. 4 pages of items lol. I'm hoping I can knock them all out in the next 3 months

Floor done and bedliner in. I know it's not perfect and I don't expect it to be. This isn't a full resto for me. Just cleaning some things up and making it durable so I can start using it.
