Thanks for liking the idea. It helps so much, You can work on it by yourself. don't have to hold it up. and it lets you reach behind while everything is still connected and label away, They do sell longer then 6" if you were interested in doing it. they do sell 12" but theres no back stop and head on it.

Im going to just replace the windshield frame. That is the only place on my jeep that has tons of rust and is the most common place on jeeps for rust to occur. It would be too much of a pain to try to fix it and would take way to long and would be near impossible to get it to perfect shape. Also its only like $250 for a new frame so its cheaper and less of a hassle to just buy a new one so I will buy a new one and then reuse the glass to save money since its in perfect shape.

Hey everyone, so today I purchased a few things that I needed for the next steps. Luckily I live down the street from Morris 4x4 so I don't have to order online, I can just go and pick up from their warehouse. I got two motor mounts, a master bushing kit, brake bleeders, new rubber brake lines, and then new stainless steel brake lines, and new master rear brake kit. I also got new shock sleeves.

Hey as far as those classic tube prebent stainless steel brake lines go- I just put those (all the lines) on my jeep and they did not match the contours of the original lines good. They say all pre-bent lines don't match perfectly. I could have maybe coaxed mine a little better but not much. You might think about returning 'em and learning how to bend tubing and make your own.

Hi everyone, so today i started removing all the cheap knock off line x that the previous owner spread the entire inside of the tub and rear end. The stuff is on there fairly well but with applying a gel stripper and letting it sit it bubbles right up and comes off. I was worried that maybe they placed the line x on the back of the tub to cover rust but theres actually no rust. Just one tiny little hole, altho theres a little bit of filler in one spot but will be easily be taken cared of. I wasn't able to finish it all in one day so i got some more to go.

Hey everyone, so I started doing work on my brakes. I got all the springs and pad disassembled and got a rebuild kit and will be putting it all back together. I also got a new sandblasting machine and finished putting that together.

HI everyone. I finally got the engine back from the machine shop. Mike from Total Engine Concepts in Riviera Beach, FL did an amazing job and he has a great shop. I had everything cleaned, bored, machined, and shaved. Redid the pistons, cam shaft and crank shaft, machined the crankshaft and the control arms, shaved the heads, bored the pistons to .40 I started reassembling and got almost everything done except for the rocker arms and setting the timing. here are some pictures
