I think those two bolts are mount points for a cheap winch that came with the vehicle. I haven't tried to mount it because it's doesn't look like it could pull a tooth, much less, provide any serious recovery measures.

I'll have to look through the windshield. That's the only place I haven't looked.

It looks like the clutch bellcrank bracket was installed correctly on the YJ tub, but due to the body lift, they just bent the bracket down. To retain OEM geometry, the bracket should be lowered ~1", and then the clutch rod should be extended. I also have a 1" body lift on my CJ-8, and although I lowered the bracket, I have an adjustable pushrod on the bellhousing end, so I was fine using the stock CJ clutch rod through the firewall. Your choice as to how to accommodate it.

Either way, I doubt this is the sole cause of your hard clutch. You probably have a stiff clutch plate installed, but the only way to find out is to pull the transmission and look at the pressure plate.

You have a Dana 20 transfercase.

Also looks like a Renegade trim package based on the steering wheel and the plastic trim around the speedometer. You're missing a piece of trim on the back side of the steering wheel. The door pulls and leather retainers are custom, as are the panels on the interior of the doors themselves. You probably had the smoker's package due to the cigarette lighter, but the ashtray was removed. You have the clock and tach, which weren't in every Jeep. What's more: you probably have the stock OEM tach for the 304, which is extremely uncommon, verging on rare. Hold on to that tach with your dear life. The tachs aren't interchangeable the way AMC ran the wiring for the ignitions: running the I6 tach with a V8 will give you the wrong RPM. The V8 tach also has a different redline at 5000 RPM versus 4500 for the 232/258.

Those are NOT Jeep seats. I can't tell you what they came out of, but the seat frame bracket doesn't look correct either.

Levi's edition rear seat! Period correct for a '77 CJ-7.

The filler may not be centered in exactly the correct spot. Also probably an accommodation for the YJ tailgate hinge. I don't think it's off by much though, if any. And it could just be an illusion based on the angle of camera.

Your hardtop was repainted; they weren't glossy from the factory.

Another good shot showing the front bumper installed over the rear crossmember (and under the hitch, which appears to be an OEM hitch). On the right side it's pretty apparent that it was done that way to accommodate the YJ body mount at the back. There's really nothing wrong with this other than aesthetic, and if you ever installed a real rear bumper, you'd never see it anyway. If I was to do this, I probably would have welded the bumper directly to the crossmember as well. (But I also admit that I just never bothered installed the bolts for the rear crossmember when I did my swap. It was on my "to do" list, but with the rollbar tie-in to the frame, I wasn't worried about those last two mounts.)

Definitely a YJ tailgate, so the conversion wasn't 100% complete. You can see they notched the fuel filler to accommodate the YJ hinge. BUT I can also see they cut out the upper two YJ studs for the spare, and presumably welded them up higher or bought new studs and fabricated some kind of a plate to accommodate the larger CJ wheel bolt pattern. It looks like your spare should work just fine.

You can still install the CJ tailgate, but you'll need to loosen all the body mounts enough to jack the body up off the frame several inches in the back so you can cut the access slits and slide plates up inside the tub.

If you look at later CJs, and YJs, they all use a paddle handle.
