I have never sand blasted before, what a mess. Despite that, I am happy with the results. This should help move the prep along.

I sent the trans out to be rebuilt and to have the Novak trans adapter and shaft installed. I also had the dana 300 rebuilt at the same time. I am now in the process of detailing both. I am getting ready to order the shifter. Lokar seems the logical choice. Just can't choose between the 16" or the 23" shifter. If anyone has images of a 23" installed I would appreciate a look. Thanks.

Here is a look at the d300 with a fresh coat of paint. Had it rebuilt while I have it out. Couple hundred thousand miles on it,it's time.

I had the day off so I was able to start removing the rear axle for it to be rebuilt and re geared. I have already ordered the parts and I just need to get it to the shop so they can turn it around. I decided to go with 4.10 ratio and factory ten one piece axles as well as a Detroit true trac limited slip. It will end up on 33" tires. You can see in the photo the seal is shot, it's leaking whats left of the gear oil lol. Another nor'easter is headed our way so I probably won't get it to the transmission shop until the end of the week.

I was able to get the axle benched today but not much more. Work comes first.

Found some time to work on the axle today. While tearing it down I found why I was pulling to one side more than usual during hard braking. You can see the gear oil leaking in to the brake drum, it's all over the shoes. Since it was such a mess I decided to drag it outside and sandblasted the whole thing. I was able to beat the nor'easter closing in on us. I'll clean it up better when I get it back from the shop.

Here's a look at the goodies going in to the amc 20. After researching the possibilities I decided to keep the stock axle. It should hold up fine for my needs. I am dropping the axle off at the mechanics tomorrow morning, I hope he can turn it around quickly.
Also ordering up a drum overhaul kit to finish it off nicely when it's back. I'll keep the drums because the SSBC disc kit didn't review well and besides my set up has done well by me over the years.

Today I finished stripping and prepping the grill for primer. I was able to get a few coats of primer on there as well. I can't wait to fit up the new Flexalite Ls radiator that just arrived.

Here are a pictures of the Jeep taken today. The front axle was dropped off this morning at the shop and the rear was picked up. The rear will get some paint and new shoes on her and then return the back end to the ground.

Hello all. I put a some time in on the rear axle. I had purchased a drum overhaul kit. The drums weren't painted so I put a couple coats of charcoal stove paint on them that I had hanging around, I also painted the new slave cylinders. Then I cleaned up and painted the parts that had to be reused like the e brake struts, e brake levers and guide plates. No one will ever see it but I wanted to anyway. Thanks for looking.

Thanks, I have been on a good roll. I hope I can keep up the rythm. You know how things can come up though. I saw your imported header adventure. That didn't look fun. Did you get the old manifold back in?

Yeah work and wives definitely can get in your way LOL

The headers were a PITA, I was so frustrated I just put the stock manifolds back in! I could of welded up the flange and grinded it down to spec, but I was too flustered and needed to get it back together! I did just fabricate a 3" exhaust on the Jeep though, and about to start retuning it. I might mess with the headers again in the future, I can do that job a lot faster now after all that practice!

I'll keep an eye out for some pics of the exhaust.
