I really love PB Blaster; this teardown has been pretty smooth.

I'm originally from York PA, so I feel your pain. I really wish I would have had this done several months ago, but it was just too damn hot. It's only 90* today.

Keep in mind that I still have that homebrew spacer on the skidplate, so it's sitting a bit lower, but it's a stock shifter.

Ahhhh Haaaaa!!!!! That's why the valve cover is touching the firewall....the spacer is making it sit at a lower angle.

I love moments of clarity, especially on Codeine!

I want to take the body off this weekend, but I'm a bit stuck on where my mounting points should be and what the best method is for taking it off. I don't want to screw this up, any ideas?

How rotten is the tub? It doesn't look too bad from the pics in which case just hook to the roll bar and use a jib of some sort to equalize and keep the load level.

Are you using an engine hoist or the tractor to lift it off?

Another option is to lift the front by hand and slide a 4x4 post between the tub and frame just behind the transmission. Do the same in the rear and use the protruding post ends for attachment points. Makes for a more stable lift but requires something alot higher, like a chain block from the rafters, to lift it so the straps or ropes don't "squish" the tub sides. Maybe something you already have hanging from the rafters in that steel shell?

The tub has rot, but I don't know how much; a lot has been hidden with bondo, so no telling how bad it really is.

I was planning to use the tractor to lift it. What I was thinking was chains bolted in at the far rear seat mounts and the far front seat mounts.

The steel shell was my RV garage, when I had the Airstream. It will be converted into my shop eventually, and I would like to build in a rafter lift.

That might be what I need to do. In the end, the tractor idea seems too complicated.

I'm still sick as hell, but my stubbornness won't allow me to stay inside. I managed to get the roll bar off, and found some homemade braces and more rot underneath, so my mind is made up about getting a Willys Overland replitub. That's about all I'm doing today, this flu crap sucks!!!!

Seeing your pics brings back some bittersweet memories of my own build. Forget about the clown, keep the pics coming. Looking forward to watching your build progress.

Why bittersweet?

Not worried about the clown, especially considering the fact that he doesn't know the difference between Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV)!

I shouldn't poke too much fun, or he'll whine again.

fred,

Nice work so far on the jeep. You are giving me the motivation to start on mine. Agrevating or not the build will be fun for the whole family. Sometimes helping dad sometimes laughing at what dad has done this time. Good Luck!

By the way SUBSCIBED!!!!
