John Strenk Discovered this little mod the PO did when installing the wipers.
Today 06:11 PM
John Strenk Got rid of a very rusty plate today.

Does anyone know what the yellow and orange holes are for?

Looking for a place to route my wiper hose.

Also check out the green holes in the old plate. That's where my PO made a poor mans tilt wheel.
He lowered the end of the steering column so the steering wheel sat higher.
No wonder I had no Problem fitting behind the wheel in my '5

Just so you guys know I wasn't sitting on my butt today I also
1. Installed fresh air Plenum made sure all flaps work properly
2. Installed heater assembly after discovering why it wouldn't fit before.
3. Installed new defrost duct and diverters.
4. Drilled holes to attach courtesy lights on the new dash.
5. Removed old steering column.
6. Cut and weld the Tuffy glove box to fit in it's new location

bob4703 Last night I took the Bikini top off, filled the cooler with water and Gatoraide and took the boss to our Jeep Club's monthly cruise in. Last month we had over 60 Jeeps of various types. Last night about half that number showed up. Last night we had 12 CJs to show up so we were the majority.

The last to show was fellow JF member Jeepfellow and his grandson George in his 79 CJ5 complete with canoe. It was good to meet them and Nelson you are welcome back anytime, but I'm going to hold you to the promise to bring the CJ2A. The Boss said you have to bring George. He was a big hit with her and the other ladies--not a bad choice for a wingman.

John Strenk Got some new LED tail lights installed.
It was tricky.

Attachment 3921327

Had to do some grinding first

Attachment 3921373

Then it fit

Attachment 3921371

Then some welding to finish it up.

PhillyDak Cj7 is holding its water, so far. Ran for about a half hour and no leak. So far so good.

Installed the hood and all its stuff...hinges, latches, tie downs and rod to hold it open. Double check me, ball end of rod is held to the hood by a plate with a round hole and the other end goes into a bracket attached to grill/radiator rod.

PhillyDak RN, that makers perfect sense and I wish I had leaned that sooner. Started first with jb weld... another lesson learned.

It is my understanding that some of the block and radiator sealers require oxygen or atmosphere as they seep out so to cure properly. Not sure 100% but if you use JBweld and it does it's job the other sealer is not going to know what to fix. I would use the block sealer first the crack will be there if it doesn't work.

KWIKCJ5 I took mine to the local 1/8 mile drags strip last night. Traction was a big problem, BFG all terrains are not drag slick! Best I could do was 8.5’s at 88 MPH My 60’ times were terrible 2.20’s. It was fun though!

Thanks! Ever since I broke mine, a lot of people have been saying the same thing.

Ever try the HD output?

I typically ripped the case in half, or lost the gears. I haven’t broke one since I put the cal track bars on.

Dadamsnv Though you folks might like to see an LS powered CJ5 rip up the streets and the desert a little. Also, I broke my dana 20 rear output filming this... oops!

Thanks.

Clean ! You can feel the difference by hand after you use the claybar
