No updates to report here. I have driven it a few times, but that is about it. Runs great, starts up and still makes me smile! No regrets!

Just checking in after a few months of no activity. Great Jeep weather in Phoenix, so I have been taking it out whenever possible. I took off the bike rack, since I never take the Jeep to the trailhead when I bike because I fear vandalism or theft.

Runs great, but has a bit of an oil leak that needs attention. The battery went dead from sitting so long, but I was able to charge it up and it works fine now. The 'new' made in China dimmer switch broke somehow and left me without headlights, but other than that it is holding together.

Great to see some progress on some of my favorite JF build threads! I can honestly say, for me, the build process was much more fun before it was done! Good times and I learned a ton! When the dimmer switch broke, my 11 year old son asked me if I still remember how to work on the Jeep. I think I might recall.... If not, I can always re-read my own thread or a few of my favs on this forum as a refresher! :-) Cheers, guys!

Boom.....great to see ya on JF. I've been gone for some time and just started getting back on here.

Still have my 401 to build. I have everything that needed machining done. Still need to purchase the intake and dizzy I want but other than that I'm good to go. May take some time off this summer and just get the engine built, not sure yet.

Yo Trap! Great to hear from you! I wondered what you were up to with that 401. That is going to be quite the powerhouse when you drop it in the CJ!

Boomvader,

Are you still liking the layout of your dash? What was your reasoning for switching the glovebox and passenger speaker location? I would also like to know what indicator lights are for that you installed with LEDs.

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris. Yes, I still like it very much. Wanted glovebox a bit closer to driver side and a more symmetrical look to the dash by having the speakers flanked on each end.

Indicators are: BLUE: Hi-beams, RED: Parking Brake, AMBER: 4WD, 2 GREEN above Speedo are for turn indicators

Daniel at DoubleD Fab did an amazing job, was easy to collaborate with and shipped it fast and securely.

Still hard to believe I finished this project! The Jeep sits in the garage and I can honestly say the fun, for me, was the restoration and planning process. What a fun time and so many great memories!
