removed front clip, tranny, and t/c getting ready to remove engine this Sat. Then will cut/grind, remove stock motor mounts, and get ready for new install of V-8/Tranny, wiring..................and looks like, will be installing 44 in the rear. Good thing, this isn't the trail toy. I would still like to get it on the road, in a few weeks.
They call it PMS, because Mad Cow, was already taken.
Very productive day. Removed the hardtop. Install the family style rollbar out of a 94 YJ, found out one retractor wasn't working (need to figure that out), Bent up a new return line for gas, got some steel for the frame weld up, clean the poly tank and got new lines, ordered the 4:10's and need to make a decision on the T176 or T18A I have ready to go. T176 is a straight swap, but the T18 is going to require new mountings and driveshafts. What to do, what to do.
PS - The damn CJ bikini and tonneau cover I bought last year are wrong for the new bar. Need to order new ones.
