The plot sickens

I'm no stranger to old 4x4's so it's come as no surprise that every time I remove a worn or broken part on my newly acquired CJ5 I find two worn or broken parts behind it. The major components have been all good and I'm almost done with my axle rebuild and disc brake conversion. The poorly installed YJ skid plate came as a bit of a surprise though. I hadn't looked that close. Luckily I'm an old time fab guy so no biggie I suppose. The finger tight drivelines and loose transfer case were a bit of a surprise but at least I caught it in my garage and not on the road. My two weekend project has gone long for sure. Luckily my wife is very understanding and is even getting in on the action and learning to weld on the bumpers and rock sliders. So there's my story for the day.
