Nice... It's come a long way in a short amount of time.

Finished the front skeleton of the winch bumper, installed the tank straps and did the front balljoint that was bad. Now it literally just needs the headlights and two brake lines

Well the day has finally come that the build can run and drive. There is definitely still some odds and ends but for the most part it can move, stop, start and run under its own power. I still have to wire the front lights, put the grille insert in, do a tailpipe, add a filler cap/neck, do some spring clamps and redo the front passenger balljoints and rivet the hood pins, and put the interior trim back on

I decided I wanted to cut the fenders, and I also pulled some dents out. I’ve been having a blast driving it around our property. Here is some pics from now and then when I first got it in September

This actually is the best way to figure out what else needs to be done.

Sounds like a solid plan, I’m excited to get it reliable and dependable.

Rock sliders of some sort are always a good idea and fun to build. Great work so far, I enjoyed following along.

Might have been a good call changing that diff fluid.

yessir. I did an oil change as well, actually running decent oil for once lol. I need to drain the tank and clean the lines, think I have an injector wire that’s broken somewhere and that’s causing my misfire. I am also going to be doing some aftermarket dom steering and diff breather relocations. Also thinking about doing a Lincoln locker but unsure of at this moment as I don’t like spools

My wife's WJ was having a misfire issue in reverse only. Turns out that it is quite common. The harness rubs through on a stud on the back corner of the head and grounds out the injectors.
