Took the wife and kids out in it today. Went thru town a grabbed some go-go juice, headed out thru Hueston's Woods, lolligagged thru Oxford and annoyed the college kids with the straight pipes, came back and poured my daughter in bed for her nap.

Wasted hours of my day looking for the lock cylinders I removed from the doors in April, 2011.

I have new cylinders but the z-brackets are still attached to the old cylinders.

1978 Cherokee, TBI 360/T400/QT...6.0/6L80/NP241C in the works...

I'm so freaking sick of cleaning parts for paint
All worth it when it looks that nice though, right?

They are small and sometimes the mess in your shed is, ahem, big from what we've seen Dave. Good luck.

Heated up and bent my twin sticks so that I can roll the passenger seat forward all the way, then took the jeep out and tested out the 4 High and 4 Low positions.

I broke a cardinal rule in some people's eyes

I WASHED IT!!!!!!!!!!
Did a little tuning to the carb. I tried to reattach the sound barrier permanently to the hood but it didn't work. I think I am gonna have to break down and buy the self stick stuff from eastwood or something. Anyway it was a nice day out in Northern VA so I just kind of tinkered.

LOL The dog is the baby, and I would be dead if I did that!

I did get one radius arm done and installed, the other side has the coilover and radius arm mounts on the axle...now I just need to build the frame mount and a panhard and I'm done with the front. I'll post up pics tomorrow hopefully.

My dog loves the kennel she hears the word kennel and she gets so excited. And my other dog hates the kennel when she hears kennel she goes to bed and lays there she wouldn't do anything.

Of course, but it's grueling. It's gonna be bomb when it's done, I'll be glad I did all the extra work.
