    Electrical gremlin was the crimped end on the positive feed to the pdc being loose. Cutting power to pcm, asd, abs, and everything else

    She ran today. No belt or exhaust but it starts. Had to reconnect almost every electrical connector on the engine we got it. Need to do a water pump and oil change but it runs. Tomorrow it may drive off the trailer

    Well the case is in but I need to get some drive shafts. My rear was bout 8" too short when at the end of the splines. Should be perfect for my short bed tho. It's been a long weekend and not alot of progress made. Still need to get a cherokee compressor too.

    Re: 1 ton MJ build.

    Well it's been slow going taking care of little things on the mj. Knowing a water pump was needed, I decided I might as well go ahead and do hoses and thermostat. Well that lead to a bunch of new parts. In the process of disassembly I discovered I really needed to give the mj some love and I should create a great psa. Well the psa got posted on Facebook and then the crazy "seasonal" automotive shenanigans began. Now for pics of the nastiness.




    Well while I missed out on going to play at willow again, I did get a great deal on running and driving truck.



    And today I made some progress today getting the driver seat mounts mocked up. Tomorrow the exhaust, motor mounts, and new plugs in and I'll be measuring for driveshafts. And if all goes well I'll even get seat mounts built.

    Who the hell does that. Puts the bolt in backwards so you can't take it out.

    Re: 1 ton MJ build.

    Made a nice new badge for the mj tonight. Gonna get it on once I finish it.

    Tomorrow I will get my new rough country long arm crossmember drilled for the 3/4" lower link bolts and get it installed, install my sye, get rough driveshaft measurements, and fix the most evil placement of a motor mount bolt (pictured above). I'm getting so close now.

    Well the new rough country crossmember is in, links are roughly adjusted, and now the new 7.5" springs are in. Definitely looks like the 37s are officially too small now.

    Sad it looks likes it is sitting on 31s with a 4" lift.
