Some where in the build thread I have a picture of the winch I picked up for it. Has been sitting in a box under our fire place ever since. So I pulled it out along with the mounting plate to see what I need to get it wired up and mounted. I want to add an in cab in/out switch for the winch sk il have to grab one of those soon. It came complete with a fairyland, cable, hook and cover. Has some mounting bolts but I'm probably going to grab some grade 8 bolts to be safe. It's a runva 12500lb winch.

I don't think im going to use the quick disconnect conector on the winch. As long as the cables reach the battery I wont be anyways. I was thinking of using the connector on my 2nd alternator for the welder set up I want to build for it. this way when I want to weld I just plug in the cables and turn it on.

So I unstuck the metering rod plunger in the carb( I think that's what its called anyways). I went to the napa store to order a rebuild kit. No luck there. I'm going to go to a couple other places this week. If they can't get one I can order one from the states. Around 65$ with shipping and exchange rate. So not too bad. I cleaned and painted the top of the air cleaner assembly. I don't like the colour and I'm going to re paint it. I went to the surplus store to grab some more lights and toggle switches. There out of the lights I want. When I bought them they were a dollar a peice and now there 10 a peice on Amazon. Good thing I only need 1 more. I didn't like there toggle switches there so I'm gonna go to tsc and princess auto and see what they have. I didnt take any pics either.

Thanks. I've been taking parts to work with me so I can do some work here and there on it. Now that the days are getting longer I can do more work when my sons asleep.

I haven't done very much with the jeep lately. Atleast nothing worth posting about. Since I still have alot of body work to do I've been thinking alot about cutting the back half of the body rite off and turning it into a little truck style cab and making a little flat deck to go on the back of it. I've googled some build threads and looked at some different pics. I think it would look really good but it would also be alot more work.

I picked up another toggle switch for my switch board I made for the winch. It's an on/off/on switch which that i will use for in and out while I'm in the jeep. I've decided I'm going ahead with cutting up the body for a truck cab and will make a small flat deck for the back half. I'm gonna stretch the wheel base a bit while I do it but I'm not sure how much yet. I've never worked with fiber glass before but I'm gonna shorten the hard top for it and see if I can find another one for a hard top bikini top

This is the toggle switch I picked up. Just like the jeep its nothing fancy. I did find another led light in the garage to finish the panel with. I think when i do the rear stretch i might go with 8 inches. I did move the engine farther back a while ago so i would have maximum rad to fan clearance. So with a bit of stretch in the rear and using the 9 inch my rear drive shaft length and angle should be alot better. I think when I do the body I'm not gonna leave a tail gate on it, just weld a peice of sheet metal into its place but still use the back window on the hard top. I'm going to try and use the rear corners off the body and see how everything looks.

Checking in for my 3 year update. Glad to see you're still working on it! I'll be back again in another year or two to see your finished project

Just a quick question. Thinking of putting a cj grill in little blue is that a hard conversion? I would like to keep my tube fenders I have on now

Hard for me to say. I went with the whole cj front end, I'm re wiring my whole engine compartment at the same time for the v8 swap. Doing the headlight upgrade and replacing all my light sockets. So for me it's pretty simple but for others it may require more work. Depending on your current set up you may run into rad and fan issues.

Current state of my wiring. Haven't had much time to get back on it. Bought some 2 wire connectors for it. I like buying them like this so I don't have a bunch of splices every where. Same with the fuse box. Just less problems down the road in my opinion. You can get them from single wire up to 5 wire I believe. Looked at a small hobby farm yesterday. The barn would make a great work shop for the jeep but the house and property will need alot of work. Will probably just keep looking.
