Just wanted to give an update b/c it has been awhile since I posted on this thread. I just passed my Series 7 and 63 FINRA exams so I have not had time to work on the Jeep. However now that those tests are out of the way I am back on it! I am in the process of replacing all the belts and the radiator now. Changing the belts have been a pain!!

Is there some sort of weather strip there to seal them from the elements?

Build is looking great, can't wait for you to come over to NorthEastFL4x4.com, most of our current members are in Jacksonville/Middleburg right now and I know they would love to see your build.
