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.

Thanks for the thumbs up.
Some times it seems like a full time job. Definitely worth it to me though.

Here she is. She's got a 304, 3 speed and sounds pretty nice. She even has factory a/c that I got running this weekend, tho I probably wont need it much, but it works now

I'm at this stage right now on my rebuild. Can you please tell me what type and size of hoses and connectors those are? Also, where you got them?

Thanks, it looks great!

Mounted the lines on the motor mount for easy removal & they are far enough from the exhaust manifold.


Tank plumbed in. Ran vent line through the frame to the front/charcoal canister. Covered the S-Steel lines to prevent chaffing.

Drove it 8 miles down the road to get some 93 non-ethanol gas! It may just be placebo, but it certainly seems to run even smoother on the good stuff!

Trading Post, Rte 29 South out of Charlottesville.

Cheers,
