hassel,

I could be wrong, but I think the reason the sway bar links are touching the TR is you don't have any weight on the springs, yet.

I agree. I was going to sandblast mine but for the price it was worth getting new ones. Now if I could only get to that point of installing them!!

When I did my frame (it was a new bare metal TDK frame) I gave it an overnight to dry plus I took a propane torch and heated up all the nooks and crannies to evaporate any moisture. Prep is key and I hope yours holds up well.

Any prior experience with ProComp shocks?

I had my "parts Jeep" running long enough to drive it around the yard and up and down the road a bit. The Pro comp shocks seemed to soften the ride pretty well. Cant beat the price either at just $40 a piece. I like them.

It's been a couple months now for the por. I just rinsed all the garage dust off the other day, and it's still shiny! I do have to do some touch up though, because I had to take the frame to a collision shop and get it straightened, and they scratched the piss out of it! Turns out, my frame was an inch and a half out of square, and twisted. Didn't realize it until after it was painted!

There used to be, but as time goes by the roads get gated or boulders piled in front of them. I haven't done much in the past few years. Jeeps been apart for over a year and prior to that I didn't trust it because the frame was rusted pretty bad (see my build) so it got driven very little, especially off road (other than stone mtn. roads). They had an "off-road event" last Nov. over at Penn's Cave that a local 4x4 shop owner told me it was some of the best wheelin' he's done in the area. Unfortunately there was a rift created between the sponsoring club and the land owner so they didn't have it this year and it's private ground. Other than that I'm not really sure. Once my Jeep is back together I'll be able to get some of these young guys to show me what's available nowadays, locally. I'm more of a trail guy, not really into rock climbing and I got muddin' out of my system long ago.

I'm not building my Jeep for heavy duty rock climbing, and it's going to be far to nice to swamp it it some huge mud hole, so trails it is for me too....not to mention an occasional car show here and there

Well I figure if mine's done by the All Breeds Jeep show in July I'll take it there for it's one and only "show", but the speed at which it's moving that may not be possible!

I just caught myself up on your build thread.....Man, you gotta be getting sick of all that body work by now! Lucky for me, all my body work is done. I ditched my CJ tub at the beginning when I got the chance to get a YJ tub for $300! It was alot easier for me to just make the few mods to it to make it a CJ tub. Although, I do believe I'm going to re-paint it a Burnt Orange color with black trim and wheels. It's all assembly for me from here out. Don't have to wait on any more parts, or money to buy them.

I'm hoping to be done by spring, which will give me sufficient break-in time for the one and only Jeep event that I know of in my neck of the woods. Every summer, a local bar (appropriately named The Jeep Inn) sponsors a Jeep Jamboree, which always draws a huge crowd. If I don't make it this year....I give up!

I have heard about that one and would like to go, but they charge an arm and a leg for registration since it's an "official Jeepers Jamboree" event. They have them all over the country.
And yes, I've about had my fill of body restoration. I want to start building a roller, but first things first!

Can you see if you can find any links to it. Sounds like it's a different one than this.

Oh, it definitely is different. The one I'm talking about is much more low key, but still slot of fun.

Finally got a roller today! Started installing the gas tank too. Its in, but somethings wrong. Took way too much force to get it in! Gonna have to take another look at it tomorrow. Question is, does the lip running around the center of the tank go above or below the bottom lip of the rear crossmember?

I'm not sure, mine's been a poly tank for a good many years now. It will probably only fit one way, so that theres not a big gap between the bottom of the tank and the skid plate. Should be just enough room for the plastic spacer sheet between.

Looks great Matt. I am already anticipating rebuilding the rebuild in a year or two. I gotta get it rolling because I have to move. However, I was gonna buy another to drive while I did this one, and do that one when this one was done (if that makes sense). I am pissy without one to drive- I must pass 50 CJs YJs and TJs a day (plenty of JKs too, but they don't inspire the same vibe).

I love what you're doing- I'm in.
