It's a long list of what I've been doing to my '92 YJ. Today's items include new front brake lines and hoses, a lot more metal cutting and welding to repair rusted body mounts, finished welding in the new floor section. Still along way to go with getting it on the road.

Had my tires balanced (bye bye DW!) and replaced my stock spare with a full size 31. Now without a tire cover I just need to paint the rim black

Lookin good Linda! I did mine not too long ago and also struggled getting the old one out. I was afraid of breaking something.

As for my Jeep, had a new floor pan welded in. I'm actually at sea right now but I left my jeep with my mechanic for the month to nip away at it over time. He's all done. Before and after pics:








Next step is to Monstaliner the whole interior when I get home!

Getting ready, cooler temps on the way... the wife and I are wildlife photographers and will soon be headed deep into the wetlands of south FL
Could you post up a pic or two of your mirror mounts? Did you buy them or make them? Anybody else move their mirrors & how? I'm really interested in doing this also

Thanks, Justin. Nice job on the floor pan! Did he just go over what was left there with the new one?

Thanks. I did take the pass side panel off (I apparently dislodged the lock in the interim - which I just fixed) but I don't think you need to. I used a thin screwdriver and pried them up out if the clips. Make sure you line up the left side/right side - there is a difference - and you'll see where the clips are

It doesn't matter what happens to the old ones. I pulled the new tabs up a little so it would be easier to slide them in the slots on the door also. Not sure if I was supposed to but it worked.

There is a small piece of rubber that needs to slide under here. That's how you know you have the correct side piece.

Nope. I cut the old pan out for him. He welded the whole new pan in

I like those! Do you use them as replacements or do you take them off when and of you put your doors on?

Today I changed the oil, put on a locking gas cap (old non locker had no rubber grommet to seal fumes, my garage was stinky) and made a negative battery cable out of some scrap 2 gauge green copper wire, a ground lug, and some heat shrink that all somehow managed to come home with me from work.

Today I installed 2 new CORBEAU Moab seats and one 4 pt harness. I assumed the order would contain both sets of harnesses, but I was wrong. So now we wait for the passenger side to be delivered.

These seats sit a little higher than the old, which I'm sure I'll have to address. Do they make a low profile seat mount?

For your new 4 point seat harness, did you have to install a cross bar behind the seats to mount the seat belt to?

I mounted it directly to the floor. I'd like to add a cross bar before long, I just wanted to get everything situated and see what space is left.

I put on my lab coat last night...

And relocated my CB and Ham antennas and built a license plate relocator to the center of my spare tire. Here's a few pics...

I started with the license plate relocation mount. I used the same steel I used for the skin on my rear fenders for the main plate holder. The square tubing was a leg to a broken pop up day shade in a previous life.


For the mount sleeve, I used the part of the pop up leg outer sleeve.


Here's the rough shot.




While I was at it I moved my antennas inboard to get them out of harm's way and off of the outer corners of the Jeep.




Here's how I routed the wires down the carrier.


And into the tub.



Now back to the plate holder. This is after a little paint and getting the light mounted.


Quick disconnect for the light for removal.


I'm going to trim the top of the plate off so there's not so much empty metal above the license plate. I'll post up the final pics after I get it done this weekend.

Just a note before anyone says anything, but the stack of Old Glorys in the background are flags one of my customers at work passed to me to get to one of our local VFW posts for proper retirement. They are HUGE and very difficult to get folded properly without help, that's why they are a little rough and tumble. When I got them, they were a pile of red, white and blue in a storage room.
