Now I'm in a holding pattern until the new injection stuff decides to show up. Guess I will be working on the trailer.

Great build! Your craftsmanship is awesome. Dad had a 79 Renegade with the 304. I have a 88 and 89. YJ's. I also read you SOA swap thread. Took several weeks at work. Ha.

Just a few questions. Just curious. You get alot of YJ's in. Do you ever resell them or just scrap them? You said 40 or 50 of them in a short time period. The ones you cut up look way better than some decent stuff around here in the salt belt. Around here you might get lucky to find a rusted beat up YJ for $2000. Say you buy it and part it out. Where would the money be made? Around here nobody wants a 4.0l of the 4.2l. Craigslist is full of them. Everybody is swapping to a LS engine or diesel like me. So if you have a rusted out tub, rusted frame, a good running 4.0 that you can't give away. All you have left is small parts and maybe $350 in scrap steel.

Just curious how to make a few bucks on these YJ's. Thanks

Yeah, but if it was painted white, I bet the brake master cylinder would vibrate and hit it, causing the paint to chip.

After reviewing the pictures I would have to concur.

Hey Regan, thought I'd check in and see how you guys are doing. I thought this would be tarring up the back roads by now?!

I tried to bring it to town on friday to get it aligned but ran out of gas and I snapped a pin in the shifter. So I had to get towed back home. Fuel level gauge is 1/4 tank off.....typical YJ stuff we all have to live with. Shifter should be back together tonight and I will try again
