skizriz Pulled the front driveshaft to check the carrier bearing a little better. Surprised at how well it has held up considering I just threw it together with parts laying around the garage, and a cheap tractor store bearing. No play yet, and everything looks good.

A site called 'lseat.com' I took the risk on the fronts and they turned out well enough to make me happy. Be sure to order 2-tone if you want the laredo/purse style. Little pricier, but not too bad when all is said and done.

This is what the rocks look like close up. Crazy traction when dry, like soap stone when wet.
That is some trail you were out on. No wonder you broke some stuff!

Thanks. They are VERY comfy and the genuine leather is so nice. The place I bought them from had a template that wasn't exact, but my upholstery guy was able to add some and adjust the cover to fit it well. What sucks is my insurance company gave me crap about insuring this as a collector b/c of the tears in the seat. Once I get her painted the pictures will be sent in with my middle finger. My biggest pain in the arse was finding a damn fold/tumble that was in OK condition.

Curious to know the story on how you did that? Grenaded is definitely appropriate for the pics you have posted. WOW

Dwight_C Looking forward to seeing how those headlights work when you get the install completed.

Tbone711 Upgraded my cj7 to led headlights, now waiting for a new bezel, the tab broke on one of them.

MetalMountainGoat Looks way better. Glad you didn't have any rust.

Alabamacj71981 Bought an 81 CJ7 with carpet and never knew the rust situation. I grinded down the three layers of paint and found the brown electricoat. There was minimal rust. Hand sanded to smoothness. Painted POR-15. Then did some body filler work and the primed lightly with Rustoleum primer. See pics below. Next step is Monstaliner in spice color.

Relieved that I understand the rust situation and that it wasn’t so bad. Happy to have that old smell out of my CJ with old seats and carpet. Almost there.
