My Jeep kicked my butt today. It was frame off day.
I took danerit's advice ( he has a 79 build)on what to remove before trying to pull the body, plus I took all of the wiring loom and shoved it into the body.
Here is me trying to gather the wiring loom.
I found out the PO wires things together like a 5 year old with super glue and a curling iron.
Here is the body right before I lifted it off.
I unbolted one of the BL bolts about a quarter turn, then broke out the sawzaw and DESTROYED all eight of them!
Ok so I forgot to take a full picture of the frame because I am a bozo, but could you guys tell me what components I am looking at here? Is it all stock?
Here is the very back of the frame, the BL was barely in this mount because it was busted by the PO. Can I just cut off this back piece and get a new one??
That's all I got done today, but man do I have tons of questions!!
-If I do a 4" RE lift do I need to worry about the driveshaft angles?
-I am only planning on this vehicle being a daily driver and getting me through snow, do I need dana 44's?
- If I keep the stock axles should I get them rebuilt?
- Where can I buy new hardware for my fenders, hood, tailgate, body, dash, etc.......?
Im sure there is tons more I am forgetting to ask. It is going to be a few days before I get back to working on it but I plan on getting the front grill off, cutting out the exhaust, and pulling the motor the next time I work on it.
Maybe someone can do a click-free hookup so it isin't so annoying to click through this post.
