ok so i have the jeep back together and running. didnt really get any pics while putting it back together but il get some of the finished underside. It got a new flywheel, clutch, slave cylinder, 2 new motor mounts, 4 new rancho shocks, drive shafts got cleaned, painted, balanced, and new u-joints. the transmission then got cleaned, new fluids all around, and a new transmission mount. next on the list is new battery cables because mine are causing problems and both diff fluids changed.

I've been stalled on my '87 for nearly a year Finally got a job that's catching me up on the bills but now time and the weather are conspiring against me! I work 2 weeks on call (100 hours a week average) and 1 week off (paid) and every time the week off comes around the weather goes to hell. Hoping that the spring time brings better weather.

yes it is. but driving at 50mph with the top off makes it feel like -30. Are you going to come up here in the summer time?

Nice work so far! My yj had a ton of little problems when I bought it. After I fixed most of them I liked it even more! Looking forwards to seeing the rest of your build.

Thanks, alot more to come. Right now I'm trying to figure out an ignition problem. Sometimes I go to start it and it won't start, let it sit for a bit and then it will fire right up, down right weird.

My jeep won't start sometimes.. Won't even click! I throw the thing in neutral and roll it forward and the lights on the dash flick on and off and if I turn the key when they turn on she fires up ! Lol. Hopefully the 5.7 I'm putting in will fix the problem.

See that's what mine does, just started the other day. I'd love to drop something bigger in, but I can't afford it right now, currently trying to save for a motorcycle so I can then save up for jeep mods all summer lol

Your lights flick on nd off? If I was going to keep my 4.0 the first diagnosis I personally would do is pull the starter to get it tested. I think mine has been submerged one to many times

My lights don't flicker, but then will come on when I turn the ignition to the on position, but when I do to start it the just go out, motor won't even try and turn over, it's like the battery is dead but it's fine (me being a mechanic for firestone I can test it easily) starting to wonder if its the relay the power cable runs into or the ignition itself
