    Spring pack detailed and back together. Amazing how much rust builds between leaves. Heater box shortened, blasted and painted. It'll go under the dash on drivers side. Much better than right on the side of the engine where you loose all your working room. Also in are some blind spot mirrors...

    well thank you but I just realized I put my hard top back on upside down. Of course this is after all the caulking dried. One step forward and two back! Here’s a quickie photo shoot from cutting 2 acres of grass the other day at least

    Made a quickie bracket with some scrap, some fittings and we have a 2 micron kitty cat final filter. At first I ran it without any sort of over pressure valve and I could tell it was a lot peppier. I had a spare overflow valve off a junk hydraulic head, knowing these are rated to open at 60PSI i...

    PEEK A BOO!! Looks like the catacombs beneath Paris. Cut a hole in the rocker to access broken fender bolts and get a peek inside. Super crusty….coming soon to a theater near you… The roof was awful under all that flaky paint. Lots of rust and pits. Days with a wire wheel to get bare metal and...

    Seems I always speak to soon, but this appears to be the worst of the top rot. And my old neighbor gave me a mini dune buggy that I couldn’t say no to. So some deuce distraction headed this way.

    Indeed as this has rarely been the case thus far! The sliding window assembly is also in excellent shape, seals and all. Go figure!

    The top is very good as is, just needs stripped, dents pushed out, paint and new insulation

    She earned her keep today doing a property clean up, two whole truck fulls. Wife helped me with all of it, time for a beer and leftover thanksgiving stuffs. The pumpkin is finished and I’ll be heading to member David Byrum’ shop to get it installed soon!

    Anything wrong with stock wheels and 395s? I know it squishes them but in the Jeep world this keeps beads seated at lower pressures off-road. I stuck 33x12 tires on my stock Jeep 7 inch wide wheels and they run amazing at 8 psi off-road with limited bulging.

    Kids are 6 years old and the new one is 7 months. She isn’t keen on the idea of selling it, told me I need to take a break again. It is in my nature to become engrossed in stuff I like and if it’s not big ugly trucks it’s other things, probably always be into something!

    It may come as a shocker, but ive seriously considered selling the truck. I’ve put 1000 miles on her and it is a lot of fun to drive. But I look at the work that still needs done, and how it’s fitting less and less into my lifestyle. It doesn’t have enough room for my family, it eats tires...

    Hard top back deskined. Straightened it out and next is rust removal and prep for new skin… Also folding the windshield for the first time in 50 years has turned into a can of worms. Removed hinges and frame. Frame looks perfect but the cab is showing her age. With all the rotted corners I’m...

    Time to fix the hard top! In the meantime, I highly recommend running around topless. It’s the most fun you can have with your pants still on.

    My grease gun died, so needing a new one and not liking anything new, I picked this 1920s era Balcrank gun. Gotta love the depression era chrome plating and leather cup seals. Stay classy my friends…..

    She had some surprises for sure, but it’s all part of the adventure. She deserves to be pretty too so work begins on the beauty stuff. The big question is do we update to CARC style 383 green or do a little more prep work and go 24087 semi gloss like she wore in ‘65

    More small wins, replaced rotted running board with the one included by Will Wagner. Also cleaned and painted wheels. I found some treasure hiding between the jerry cab holder and the tool box. We have old school beer pull tabs, a moussy beer bottle cap which was a non alcoholic beer popular...

    Cab and transfer case bushings replaced, no more shaky shake. Burned 25 rods of 7014 welding up carrier on the “chunk project”. The jeep guys call this a Lincoln locker but I’m partial to Miller myself. Ready for assembly…. Replaced last two cooling hoses on intake manifold (weepy) 6 new...
