Here's my money pit, er, CJ...

Mostly stock 1984: 258, T5, Carter BBD (ugh), 31" BFG ATs

Recently installed a Herculiner and Warn front rock bumper and upgraded my clutch linkage.

Adding a one-piece upgrade (Evolution Series from Superior Axle & Gear) to the AMC 20, replacing the brake hoses with braided SS and installing a Painless Factory Harness. After that, it's going in for cancer surgery.

I knew I should have taken them as a loss instead of cutting out my wheel well like a dumb***. UGH. I'll take better pictures today maybe you can give me some more ideas.

I haven't been in the axles but I was told by previous owner they were one piece axles and yes they are deep dish with no spacers. 35x15.50x15 on 12" wide rims.

ConleyTD,
It looks like there are wires hanging down from the top of your windshield. Is that for your rear view mirror? If so, where/how did you run the wiring? I've got a rear view mirror with some wiring as well, but I wasn't sure where or how to best run the wires for it.

Definitely a nice 5, well done, love the yellow under there, doesn't it make it bright when you crawl under? I'm afraid of those mufflers though man, better watch your dismount! J

The wires are for a lighted rearview mirror I have yet to install. I ran the wires through the inside of the windshield frame - no it wasn't easy
I just used some stiff wire and some string to pull the wires through the frame and into the wiper motor wire hole at the bottom.

I've since replaced the broken windshield (broke the original by putting the seal in backwards).

Front end should be back from paint this week..or so i've been told...again

Speaking of dismounts (hey nice segue ) I got out of my CJ today and the back of my left thigh rubbed across the "no slip" tread on my rocker arms. Imagine taking a belt sander to the back of your leg. I have road rash on my leg and it hurts like hell!

I just used a plastic upholstery tool (so nothing gets scratched) and ran the wire for my rearview mirror under the windshield rubber seal along the top and left side. It (then) goes through the same hole as the wires for the windshield wiper motor.

The reason I didn't go through the windshield frame was because I wanted it to be an easy fix if I ever had to replace or remove the mirror.

First off Copper, ouch. Really what else can be said.
Second, I know the windshield gasket has inherent water channels to make the water runoff instead of sitting in the windshield frame which will promote rust, won't the wire interfere with the water channel? Just curious. J
