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.
85' CJ7 Laredo, 383 GM, Turbo 350, NP 203. SOA, 2" frame lift, 34" TSL swampers, Dana 30 open, AMC 20 w/ detroit locker, 4:10's, 1 Piece Mosers, 35" boggers to abuse when needed.
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.
Today I mounted a high lift jack to the front bumper, replaced all the rusty beat up old lug nuts with shiny new chrome ones with the security nut. Also replaced the old pitted radio antenna and base mount with a brand new black, powder coated one. Oh, and put the retainer track on the windshield frame and footman loops in the rear to put my new bikini top on. 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.
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...
