Yesterday, I replaced the P.O. incorrect fuel filter, both rear u-joints, the complete clutch linkage, and refurbished the old clutch rod because the new one is 3 inches too short.



Imagine what the clutch rod looked like. The end linkages rubbed halfway or more through.

'79 CJ5, 258 c.i., Carter BBD, T-150, Dana 20, Dana 30, AMC 20, 33x12.50x15, 3" body lift, taking it back to stock, then tearing it apart and putting it back together again!

The brakes sucked when I re-did the rears! Pulled the wheels off and noticed I was 50% on this one - I got the left front shoe on back of the drum and, of course, the left rear shoe on the front of the drum - doh! I got the right side perfect, however - go figure!

'75 CJ5, 304, Superlift 3", body lift (going away), 32s, 9K Superwinch, old-school Smittybilt bumpers, a working ranch Jeep.

I did a twin-stick conversion as well on my '75, really sweet but I never take it out of 4-low so I'm not sure why I did it!

11 gallon plastic tank under the seat. The metal one had rust in it and sprung a leak so I repaired the hole, boiled it out and now use it on my 10kw generator.
