That's the first thing that caught my eye. My search continues for a set and even considered trading a mint set of full doors for a set.
Anyways, nice score on the parts. I also hope everything works out with the family and recovery from the accident.....

Two thoughts came to mind:
1) These are not the chrome wheels you are looking for. Move along, move along.
2) Please ignore the stacks of chrome wheels. Nothing to see here.

Curious MoC:
Why the plans to disassemble the engines?

My back hurts just seeing those two transfer cases there. Congrats on the haul! When are you going to get Jen's CJ working as a daily driver?

Ohhh what Orange said...

Yeah I have 13 right now. 9 of them are 15x7's and the other 4 are 15x8's. I am just hording them currently. I want to get 5 perfect ones to put back on the Laredo and will likely hold on to the others for future projects.

Thanks Steve, I really do appreciate that.

Whole engines take up to much space and I can make more taking them apart and selling the pieces, than selling them as unknown engines. I was told the 258 was pulled running on a engine swap a year ago and ran great, the 304 ran 3-4 years ago and he doesn't remember what shape it was in. Who really knows and I don't want to sell a bum engine to someone.

If you look hard its actually 4 in the pile. 3 dana 20's and a quadra-trac with low range. The quadra-trac is sure one heavy sucker!! I have decided the Laredo is to far gone to want to "patch" into a daily driver and I just dont have time for it this summer or winter. So she will sit in the carport. My free time between now and vacation is already spoken for with house projects and after the house projects are wrapped up at the end of the summer I am going to do the body work, family bar, and finish the paint on mine as one big project. After than I am thinking about doing a frame off on it.

Popping the ribs back in place seems to have done the trick on the shoulder, arm, wrist pain. Her back still hurts everyday. As of now all the xrays, scans, etc look good as far a damage so the plans are going to a chiropractor 2 times a week for a while and seeing what happens next.


Well.... Had a guy come buy and buy a t150, d20, and hei dizzy this morning. I am feeling lazy and decided not to break down an engine today. Going to cut the grass and hang in the a/c with the kids.

It all sounds painful but I am a wuss with pain, hope she feels better soon.

Just finished cutting the grass and digging out a lot of 5' tall clump grass out of the back door flower bed.

Sat down in the AC and downed two Shiner FM 966 farmhouse ale's and a plate full of smoked black bass and hominy. Both kids (young women at 17 and 18 I hate to admit) are working. I rarely see them, they graduate a week from Friday and move to their own duplex July 1'st...enjoy the young ones while you can

I think about contacting you every time I see a CJ being parted of just a stockpile of stuff. But then I remember it will probably be too much of a drive. Nice way to create extra income and/or Jeep money.

Ew, I feel for you. Used to take me 45 mins to go 8 miles home every day when I lived in Fayetteville, most of which was me pounding on the steering wheel and screaming at the idiots trying to weave in and out of traffic like they were going somewhere in that bumper to bumper crap.

Moved back to the sticks and love it.

Glad you made it home ok. Looks like a great haul you got there.

Project hot summer II kicked off this weekend. Sorry to say jeep working is for the most part done for the summer.

Replaced the laundry room exterior door this weekend. The orignal door was a 1940's wooden thin exterior door. To thin to fit modern locking hardware in and it had a large sheet of glass in it.

Made a hole and found some rot.







Filled the hole.





Next up is re glazing 8 wooden windows and fixing a decent amount of decay in 4.

I bet your wife loves you! That's great work, MoC. Is that the side door? I'm thinking deck.

Nice fix bro. Scott! Take it easy dog! MoC has enough on his plate without you adding to it. A deck would look good there though...

Its the side door that opens up directly to the driveway, so no deck here :-(. The window repairs will be long, hard, and not very rewarding other the just being done. After the windows I have around a 5x7 porch roof to build complete with columns and railings. That will be fun for me. Then just paint the front 2/3's of the house that I didn't do last summer. Basically non stop exterior work for the next 2 months that hopefully will be done before vacation.

As far as vacation goes driving back to Colorado again. Two nine hour days driving there, 2 nights in Durango, a day in Ouray, then 6 nights in Aspen, two 9 hour days driving back. While there I have 2 days of jeeping planed. The stop in Ouray is to go on a 1/2 jeep tour with San Jaun Jeep tours. They are going to take up to Yankee Boy Basin
. Later while in Aspen we are going to do our second jeep trip. Going to head up to Leadville and drive up Mosquits Pass
.

Buddy, I know the feelin'. I want/need to move into this-
