Alright, I am reviving the thread lol.........

First, I cleaned the tub out completely, then washed it.





Then tied up all the wiring....(After this pic lol)



Then took my fender flares off....



Tomorrow I am picking up a new master cylinder to put on. This jeep is gonna be one heck of a jeep by the time I'm done.......

Sunday I took the old rusted up battery tray out, sanded and repainted with Rustoleum hammered black. Looks brand new and also put in a new battery. Now to fab some kind of bracket so the battery doesn't flop around.

FYI-if you have the right battery- the 'correct' hold down bracket can be found at any auto parts store for about $4

I have not been turning wrenches but the "buy" button is getting clicked a bunch. Have an almost new Weber 32/36 on the dining room table and a Supertop in route to the house.

Need to get a clutch and flywheel and then the freshly rebuilt T177/D300 can go back in along with the 258.

Also need to order a power steering gear to bolt in the new Rugged Ridge mount. It is so freaking hot I don't feel like working on it right now.

Trying to flush the radiator to cure the overheating issues I have been having. New thermostat didn't fix it. I hope that I don't have to buy a new radiator...fingers crossed!

just go back from wheeling the rubicon-- here between million dollar hill and the granite slabs.





sporting the new utility carrier-- all home brew-- holds the 37" MTR, a jerry can, power tank and a pressurized water can. The t wo antennas are each for the CB and HAM radio. Tuffy tool draawer visible. this was in camp. It opens either left or tight or can be removed completely.





Last week displayed the rig at the WEROCK event showing-off the latest version of the pack mule trailer

Got the new master cylinder on last night and drove it around topless, doorless, carpetless and seat less lol..

I am still having the same problem as the old cylinder though--the cap leaks when going over rough ground or steep hills?
