Well she'll really enjoy riding in it when your done, I'm sure it'll turn a lot of heads. I really nice well done older jeep always trumps a newer jeep any day. IMO
Sounds like you have a good plan when it comes to jeep parts, I tried sneaking a few by the wife, but she always catches me, so our deal is, I spent $100 on the jeep she gets to spend $100 on something, you have to do what you have to do.
In your earlier post you mentioned a noise coming from your engine, and you thought it may be a vacuum leak, have you addresses that yet? I've been experiencing a squealing nose since I had my motor rebuilt and can't seem to find out where it is coming from. It's driving me crazy. It'll start once I'm on the road and driving for about 5 , 10 minutes, so once the motor is warmed up it starts. When I give it gas it will not be as loud but when I let up off the gas pedal, it gets really loud. A friend suggested that it may be my power steering pump bearings going out. Ill have to check into that.
