Was a busy couple weekends for me..

Mocked up my LS motor on the MMs. She is a tight fit ! Waiting on my Novak adapter plate for my transmission before I do my final mock up and tack the mounts in.

New flywheel and clutch kit install. Cleaned up my bellhousing which was filllllthy. Also added some shiny stuff from LSX innovations for Evap/EGR delete

Also had my Superior Rad/Fan show up. What a work of art. Really impressed.

My top had a hard life before me, and I finally decided to do something about it. I repaired the structure, and then fixed the cracks. Decided I wanted a texture so I went with raptor liner. Came out pretty nice. I’m happy with it.

How did you get all those savvy stickers.

I bought a ton of stuff and I couldn't even get a lousy t-shirt.

I donít know... I think Iíve gotten a decal with every one of my orders. But when I bought my axles I asked for a windshield decal.

Took a bit of the day to be thankful for the Jeep. Finished up the hard top refresh by painting and installing the “cab vents” and painting the roof rack rails.

Figured out the shudder I had in 2nd and 3rd gear. Wore out rear u-joint. The needle bearings were totally gone on the misshapen one. Took forever to get it out, had to use the cutoff wheel. I think they were original due to how rusted they were in there. New one ready to go in.
