Made me laugh! Hopefully it was in admiration of what's under the hood and not a "oh god, what do I fix first?".

Yeah - nothing needs doing...maybe stud the thermostat housing and reseal it to make it watertight? But just lookin...

Picked up a new 6 drawer top tool chest for all the tools I have picked up over the past few years working on this Jeep. Only took 30 minutes to fill it up to where I need another 3 drawers. It is already over 6' tall. Think I may have to go sideways instead of up this time.

Billy, I wired my fogs with a relay, next are the headlights. I might go with the headlight relay harness from Summit.

Nicely done. Interestingly, it took me 'hours' to find cut splice layout tape secure to the ford relays i had available. Yesterday i found in my collection a dick cepek dual relay setup for fogs. Took about 25 minutes on my daughters yj. As much as i thoroughly enjoyed wasting a sunday on wiring 2 relays from scratch, a premade loom you can snake in somewhere us so much simpler...good luck with the headlghts

Thanks, yeah tell me about it...mine took me 2 nights. I snaked the wires thru the frame in the front and I ran the wires under the hood thru the loom from the solenoid up thru the one on the firewall then to the switch. It does take a while, especially when your heat shrinking every connection. So you noticed a big difference with your headlights using the relays? I think I'm going to pull the trigger on this kit Summit sells.

It looks ok on my phone! I'd use two 30a circuit breakers, direct to solenoid or other direct battery

Itll take one hour! Max. Inc cut, splice, heatshrink!

stuff

Pulled both front hubs to replace pads/rotors, cleaned and painted the hubs, re-packed bearings, replaced rear hub seals, grabbed the new rotors, then went BACK to the auto parts store to order the "other" ones listed for a '77, came home, painted the passenger grab handle, tweaked on the idle screws, sat around admiring it

Fixed the clutch issue last night. Unbolted the bellhousing, dropped the trans about 2 inches and pulled it out about a half an inch. Attached the throwout lever and spring, slid the ball in and then reattached the bellhousing and everything was good to go. Replaced the trans/transfercase crossmember bolts with longer ones so I can attach a skid plate to them in the future.

It has been sitting for almost 2 months without being fired and it started up on the first try after I fixed the clutch issue. The only thing I need to do is re-weld the passenger exhaust to re-attach the muffler. I had to cut it to get it back in position and attached to the manifold.

Just waiting on my driveshafts to come back from the shop and she's trail ready!
