7 took my window frame in to get sandblasted and painted it the day I picked it up.
8 was going to install my windshield but UPS broke it during delivery.

Wheeled it.

Bent the drag link trying to climb a ledge with the wheels turned into it. It bent right at the adjustment coupler.
Doing some homework now. I plan on getting some weld in inserts, some tubing, and new ends and building my own (tie rod also). Hopefully eliminating the weak spot at the coupler and going to threaded ends, along with thicker tubing, will eliminate any future problems.

New fuel level sending unit. The old float sunk. I was suspicious when the "full" reading kept getting lower and lower.

I like those. I wonder if they would work even though I don't have the side marker lights on the rear on my cj.

Probably did some of it yesterday while wheeling it, probably alot due to past neglect.
Heard and felt it while on the way to work this morning. By lunch time what seemed like most of the oil puked out of the driver's side axle tube. Pulled the driveshaft on my lunch break, and drove it home.
Ring gear shot, pinion bearings shot, carrier bearings shot.......
