yesterday and today I changed out my tired old 81 258 stocker for a a fresh rebuilt 86 258 with a 4.0 head and Clifford intake with 4 barrel Holley. it also has a comp cam, Cloyles roller chain, and a Centerforce clutch. runs great but I still have a couple of minor issues to deal with. the photos were taken moments before first firing.

Nothing but looked at her sitting in the driveway for close to a year. Getting laid off will slow stuff down. Now making up a game plan to finish soon since I would say she had been 80% done on this stage for a while.

O|||||O 1981 CJ7, 258, 4 speed..If it ain't cut, it ain't custom.

installed new rock rails

Installed new rock rails from whiteknuckle off road - very nice fit

became aqainted with the misaligned crossmember sydrome - and found some interesting bolts the PO used for the transfer case mount..... glad I found them and replaced them - that would have been a painful discovery down the road....

Finished tying up loose wires. Now my painless wiring harness (10110) install is complete.

I'd rather drive my CJ-5 than a brand new Corvette.

My Daily Driver is '96 XJ County, Over 330,000 miles and still going.

Plumbed my new charcoal canister. Extra thanks to mike1084. Great tips. So nice to get rid of the gas fumes.

Cleaned the DS hub and put on a new rotor. Need to get the 2 1/16" socket for the nuts. How do you bend that stupid washer?

Sold some jeep junk at a local Jeep swap and show at the Dodge dealer,
then used the money to buy my girlfriend dinner...after leaving dinner caught up with a
new Chevy 4 door diesel at a Stoplight on Main street,
My Tires were spinning and screaming while his big Turbo spooled up a Big WHISSSH...and
we were off - I beat him to the next light but he was comin on strong...Damn! those 6000# trucks can move.
I Win!...Awesome day.
