Made tube fenders for the front! Came out super nice in my opinion. I was super nervous about switching to tubes but now that I did I'm so glad that I did.

Installed Custom Fab twin stick shifters. Took a little heating and bending, but very happy with the results.

I was driving back from work...pulled into the driveway and tried to turn the key back to shut it off and instead it was just stuck...awesome!
I found a few good write ups online...this site has the best info.
proceeded to get a new key cylinder, ignition switch, turn signal switch,...and some new tools
Steering wheel puller and steering wheel lock plate tool....took the whole column out and set it on the kitchen table for the last few days (I have an Awesome understanding GF)
cleaned her up real good...replaced the parts...greased her in all the right places,
Everything is working better than ever...as far as the steering wheel goes...I even got the horn to work!

Ordered new trunion bearings so I can re-assemble the knuckles, got the frame and out boarding brackets all painted and mounted for the final time and installed new shackle hanger bushings.

Should have a whole new list of things to report tomorrow!

'84 CJ-7: Yota axles (spartan locked front, e-locked rear) 4" BDS, 1" Daystar & 3/8" shackle lifts, 35" X-Terrains on steelies, YJ Tub & family roll bar, heater blower upgrade, 4.2L w/MC2100 & Team Rush, Warn 8274. Rebuilt 4.2/4.0 hybrid, AX15 and twin sticks/clocking ring waiting to go in.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
<------------and yes, that is her.

I DROVE it around the block for the first time in almost a year. I had to have the passenger reach down through the floor to change gears (no auto linkage connected). Brakes now work. New steering arms fitted after reaming the knuckles and pitman arm. alignment is WAY out and the front springs still seem to twist so the body moves before the front tyres turn.. GGRRRR. Hopefully the new ball joints in the knuckles loosen up a little. Off to paint now, ill play with adjustments later.

Brought home some new axles today. Only NEEDED the front, but couldn't pass up the deal on both for $300.
The Jeep was bought new in '79 (?) stripped down, sandblasted, painted, and used in shows and cruises. Only had 14,000 miles. After years of sitting,he decided to part it out. Wish I could have gotten the frame, but it's already promised to somebody.
The candy apple brown and white parts are ugly as sin, but for once I don't have to deal with rust, broken bolts, grime, and who knows what else.
All it took to clean them up was a spray bottle with dish detergent mix and a towel.

Just need to figure out what parts I will use from my axles, and weld on new parts for the SOA.
These have 2 bolt calipers. Mine are 6 bolts. The rear has 10" brakes. Mine has 11".

Seemed like a steal to me.












78 CJ7.. 258.. TH400/Dana18.. SOA/stock YJ springs.. 35" General Grabbers.. Waggy 44s.. 4.88 gears...Spartan/Lockright...Fiberglass front to rear
