Yep, it does. It has all the original parts, including radio, seats, panels, armrests, and engine/drivetrain. I'm the second owner.

Well a little update, just for me mainly. My soft top strap along the edge somehow wore out where it was riveted to the rear support so I had to drill out the old rivets and get new ones in as well as added fender washers to prevent any further complications.

Final Product:



Best 8 bucks spent at Harbor Freight:



Also just purchased some 18/59 unlimited springs and looking to score a set of Moab edition wheels.

Well today I finally have an update. Being out of a job for awhile really puts a halt on the Jeep plans and makes you really consider what should and shouldn't be purchased. Firstly the windshield lights are finally going on. I made custom gaskets using inner tubes from bike tires and cutting to fit around the smitty brackets and had to extend the wiring on the lights using heat shrink/crimp tubing and wire loom. Initial impression of everything is that it's well made and should stand up to the salt and road debris I frequently encounter. If anyone wants more info, just let me know Final product/pictures to come shortly.











Next, I decided that instead of buying moab edition wheels (although awesome and I wish I could) I'm going to paint my original moabs a dark gray to save money and give me a truly custom look. I practiced on this old ravine that I had lying around and it looks great and appears to be very sturdy. A few people on here appeared to have had luck and so for 20 bucks, I'm trying it too. The practice wheel is the only one I have done for now but here's a picture to give you all an idea.





So that's it for now, progress was made at last.

Thanks man. The wagon is sweet, let me tell you. I drove it a little bit during the summer with that super hurricane pumping 53 year old blood, nothing like it. So far I have a "new" body sourced for it because I plan on a full restoration and a cross country road trip to christen it.

So I finally got the wheels painted and the tires mounted.

First I used sanding blocks to scuff them up and get all the clear coat ready for paint.



Then I used paint thinner to get all of the dust and debris off and went to town. I used two coats of self etching primer, 3 coats of paint, and 3 coats of clear (which has to be redone). But all in all I think it turned out well.



The final product!



Next up I actually have a small write up on how to install JKU springs on a JK (real exciting) but nobody really has done one.

Ok so just some basic maintenance but I wanted to post this because it's something I haven't even seen a small write up on it. This is a transfer case fluid change for a NV 241 rock track transfer case on all JK Wranglers.

The required materials are:
A drop light
18mm socket
1/2" drive
10 mm hex socket
2 quarts ATF+4 tranny fluid
Hand pump
Paper towels
Drain pan

So all of this can be picked up at your local Wal Mart and auto parts stores. I just needed the hex socket because I don't have a set. First remove the skid plate (4) bolts 18mm on the gas tank skid, frame rail, and the transmission cross member. Once this is lowered, remove the upper fill plug on the transfer case first; this allows the fluid to drain more completely. Next place the drain pan under the transfer case and open the bottom plug. Then wipe the bottom plug of any metal shavings (should be little to none) and fluid. I let my case drain about 15 minutes and it had no drippings anymore. Next put the drain plug (bottom plug) back in snug, this should be about as tight as you make your oil drain plug. Then attach the hand pump to the first bottle of ATF 4 fluid and fill it up. Do the next bottle until the fluid starts to run out a little bit and then put the top fill plug back in. Wipe up your mess and then place the skid plate back on the bottom, button it up, and take her for a drive. Congrats, your fluid exchange is complete! Have a beer and some wings for doing typical maintenance. Now for the pictures, in order of course!

Supplies:




Both plugs removed/draining:


Skid plate removed and fill plug out:



Skid plate ready to be reinstalled:

What shackle points are on your RC stubby? Did they come with the bumper? I have an RC stubby (non-fog) and I'm looking for those tow points that will fit. Great build!
