On the road again...

I know that this might sound a little silly, but I finally am driving my Jeep again. I feel like I am in need of a support group. It has been on blocks since last November when the crummy Pinto SR-4 tranny went out on me. I decided since I was going to buy a new driveshaft, I would put on a 4" Skyjacker lift, so I wouldn't have to buy another fancy driveshaft. I rewired the engine compartment, because of the excessive number of splices, shorts, bare wires, disconnected wires, and rat's nests that were hiding behind the wire looms. I replaced the original carb with a decent Weber. The biggest part of the project was the Muncie SM465/NP205 swap, along with the Centerforce Stage II clutch that I installed at the same time.

In short, I am proud. This is the first time that I have tackled a vehicle-type project, since I have never been mechanically inclined. My Jeep works great, and thanks to the support and information that I was able to glean from so many helpful souls here at the CJ, I have a beautiful baby out in the driveway. I'd like to thank my mother, my father, my best friend T-mil, and of course the good Lord Jesus Christ, without whom none of this would have been possible. LOL Correct me if I am wrong, but I think I used JC, GD, and F'nA to my advantage. Considering the amount of times I was cut, bruised, burnt and broke myself, that daggone Jeep might be more kin to me than my momma. Honestly, I am really excited, and have been practically giggling (if a 28 yr old dude can do that) while I've been out driving. Thanks for being patient with my silliness here.

Next project - SAFETY!!!

Ya'll be good, or be good at it.
