Pulled the front fenders, grill and rad, in preparation for motor swap.

Still have to get the bumper out of the way...

Wheeled it, broke it, wheeled it some more in front wheel drive, brought it home, fixed it with spare parts I had hoarded away in the garage, now I can drive it to work on Monday.
I almost had it made until the rear wheels slipped off into a crack, with the weight of the Jeep landing right on the driveshaft.

Headlight wiring upgrade. Had a broken connector on one headlight so i had to get another. and then found a broken wire connector inside the right front running light. Fixed it. Now brights are super bright not yellow.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

Yes definitely good to do. White light vs yellowy light. Noticeably different. Made a bit of a cluster with available wiring space but overall v happy with net result.

That's why I did this...
Replace the hood hinge pins with removable ones and your whole nose will come off in 2 minutes. Drain and unbolt the radiator mounts and you have full access to the engine. It's great for tune-ups, exhaust work, steering box servicing and replacement, etc. By far the best mod I've done to my CJ and completely free. The front tires make for perfect seats when changing the plugs. Since then I've made a front ram to hold my Warn. The nose clears the winch when lifted up.
