Spent some time at the wrecking yard to see what they had, I was already there getting a door for a friends car. Thought I found the perfect truck but it turned out to be a 5.2 and not the 5.9. I've been looking on Kijiji at vans and trucks, seen a few but nothing close enough to me

Bought another dash and a rad for it, the jeep is taking a time out for a while, will still be collecting parts for it. We have a new edition to the family and a my wife got her dream car from her dad. So the Camaro is going to be first on the list of things to do

No progress on the car or jeep, but the other day at work I put a 2 1/2 skyjacker lift kit on one of our parts guy's jeep, it was a 2013 wrangler

Why not take the couple minutes to clean up the steel before welding? Will make it weld a little easier.

I cleaned up about a 1" area around the area I needed to weld. Will clean the whole thing up before I paint it. My phone takes horrible pics

Haven't really done anything in the last year with the jeep. Just moved it in and out of the drive way. Ordered a gasket kit for the dana 300. Started working on the wiring harness for the engine today and seeing about building a new shifter for it

Cleaned up and degreased the wiring harness for the jeep at work. Going to start removing all of the unnecessary wiring for the computer since il be running a carb set up. I have Monday off from work. Have to do a couple things around the house then I'm spending some time on the jeep again.

Here's a picture of the wiring harness
mostly cleaned up. I already spliced a new trailer wire harness into the rear vehicle harness as well20190112_151438_1547335974412.jpg

Did some work on my cj dash. Made a new hole for the yj heater controls. I'm going to make a new switch panel where the cj heater controls originally went. The new switches will be for the extra lights, winch and what ever else gets added. Took a pic of my work bench at work. Brought my jeep parts to work so I'd have something to do since its slowing down at work
