Nothing major done. Funds are gone. I got the steering column painted gray, and I got the old glove box removed, and will replace it with a factory gray one when I get the dash pad and windshield cowl ...

Replaced my dash instrument lights with LEDs.
Replaced my worn out tan steering wheel with a gray one from a 1992 Wrangler.

I replaced the lower steering shaft, and now that issue has been resolved. YEA! I got the door pouches installed, and new handles put on, and I got most of the dash painted. A replacement dash pad in ...

A major setback has befell upon my restoration. The steering is now making popping sound and I feel it is unsafe to drive until that can be sorted out. It may be as simple as a replacement lower steer ...

When I got this Jeep I knew I was going to make it a Jurassic Park vehicle, and it needed a lot of TLC to even get it reliable enough to drive. The soft top needed to replace the worn hard top, and th ...

What a week. I got some good progress made on the old girl. I removed the old wheels and replaced them with factory alloy rims. The tire size is a little big but they work. I need to get a couple new ...

Another boring update:

The hard right turns make a clunk noise - turns out it was the bumper extensions, on the drivers side the bumper is bent, causing the tire to rub on it. I'm replacing the fro ...

Since my back is still killing me, I opted to take my brake parts I got from Napa, and have a local shop install them for me. Its a good thing I did, the old calipers had issues coming off, and I just ...

Argh! Today, I was driving around and watching the water temp, and feeling pretty good about the recent water pump installation, when the steering went all to crap when I hit the brakes! My front driv ...

Oh, great! Now I have a leaking water pump. After the belt chirp, a good cleaning with carb cleaner, and tightened the belt real good, I noticed some drips from what I think is the water pump. The fan ...

I did take it for test drive after swapping out the intake air temp s ...
