Finally got the family style rollbar all bolted in. I decided to use the original CJ windshield. Nutserted the cross bars. Not sure if I like it 100% compared to the old one, but one thing I will say it is easier to yank yourself up in it.

Welded up some holes in the floor, replaced a section of the floor on the drivers side. Looked at the parts box that came from JEGS to finish the motor. Ordered the herculiner and undercoating. Hoping to talk brother into going to pickapart and shipping me some stuff as only junkyard here wont let people in to look at stuff, shrug.

lets see... drained the oil, pulled the radiator, fan, vibration dampener, water pump, belts, valve cover, the peices that WAS my timing cover, the busted chain, the chewed up crank gear....

TRIED to drop the pan (hung up on the drivers motor mount.. any suggestions?)

JB welded the Alternator bracket (pray it holds)

replaced the timing set, waiting on the MISSING Oil Slinger that i think is the cause of the chain failure, as well as the hardware to replace the bolts that got tweaked when my chain snapped...

also diagnosed the steering slop i had.. and think could need a new front driveshaft...

all in all, a VERY busy day

btw... if my starter was covered in oil/muck, and oil is leaking from my bellhousing, should i be thinking rear main seal, or transmission input seal leak?

Took off the rusted up windshield frame. Stripped two torx heads. Busted one drill bit drilling them out.

Is it me or does anybody else find it to be a pain in the butt to put the Bikini top on by yourself.
Figure out the bikini top the other day by the way. I'm such a bonehead, I can't really explain what I was trying to do but I got it right.

C'MON SUMMER.

I started taking the hard top and bulkhead off of my Scrambler. Time for no top, it's gotten plenty warm here.

Is there anything more frightening than the feeling after swerving at high speeds in an old jeep? I think not.

pulling out of your driveway towards the main intersection, and having your motor mount break, which let's your motor rise, which pinches your throttle cable at full throttle as you enter said intersection (on a red light) comes pretty close...
