Now I all I have to do is get the heads back, figure out how to run the 3 inch exhaust and then take a week off and get this puppy in my jeep
The old heads wouldn't happen to be the 0331's, would they?

Replaced RC shocks/steering stabilizer with 80k miles on them with brand spankin' new OME Nitros. The rear top shock bolts went out smooth as butter after being sprayed with PB every day for a week. I was sure one of them would snap

Also replaced the stock tie rod, drag link, and ends with heavier duty ones.

Took the top and doors off and treated it to a trip to the river. Also, finally got my Viking safety thimble in and installed it along with my synthetic line

Removed and stored my full doors. Pulled the half doors out of the attic and installed. Removed fastback top windows and stored in top. A lot less bulky than I expected. Removed and stored rear seat. Installed tonneau cover in tandem with the safari mode. I like the look a lot!

I run most of the year with the tonneau cover and Rampage top converted to "safari mode" --but I don't store the windows in the top if I'm riding with the tonneau. If you're parked in a heavy downpour, just tumble your seats forward and you'll be surprised how dry everything tends to stay. If you're driving, better hope your tires don't fling the water into the cabin like my MTR/Kevlar's. My interior windshield gets covered with water rooster tailing up from the tires. lol

Started prep for an expedition. Removed the passenger seat (nobody ever rides with me anyway) and built an extension for my rear platform. That frees up a ton of cargo space up front, and I can sleep inside in adverse weather. I will post a few more photos in the interior mods section if people are interested. I built it to hinge back to enable access to the front storage.

I know. I like the look in the spare is why I did it. I have had one on in over a year. But to be legal I had to add reflectors to my taillights.
