After driving the car i found that it pulled hard to the right while braking, turns out the brakes were completely shot and the rotor was extremely warn down. Put in new rotors, calipers, and brakes. Back brakes most likely need work too ill get to that next

Looks good. I'm looking forward to watching your progress. Gotta like a guy that documents his work with pics.

I have done a boat load of work to mine, but I absolutely hate taking pics, usually cause my hands are all greasy and I don't want to touch the high dollar camera in the middle of the job...lol.

Got a lot done today...changed both rear drums, air filter, distributor cap and rotor, and the valve cover gasket. And put a new battery hold down for all the jumps im gonna be doing lol. The gasket that was on there was like a rock...puting a new gasket in a yj is definitely a bitch with the way the hoses all go right over the valve cover and the gasket gets caught and falls off every time...in the pic of the head without the cover you can see the bits of the old gasket. decided against changing the distributor wires and spark plugs because they were like new.

found a little rust on each side in the same spot under the stock steps, my guess is that its from road salt being kicked up by the tires without anyone cleaning it off after driving it...shouldnt be too expensive to fill in the holes....

Replaced exterior and interior passenger door handles and reconnected the locm mechanism because it wasnt even connected it was kind of just sitting inside the door, disconnected. Changing these handles takes A LOT of patience. btw to do this you have to remove the vinyl siding panel on the door its very easyit has oush pins and the handle hold down and the window crank screw.

while you have them out place these clips on them which connect back to the handle when you put it back on the door...then slide the rods back in the door making sure they are both straight, my locking rod was bent and the window would hit it and knock it off when i roll it up or down so i had to straighten it. then connect the white clips to the parts of the handles they connect to and screw it back on

Heres the pin i had to fabricate myself out of ine of the old ones that i bent to shit removing, since i broke one of the new ones that came with the handle...it also seems that they sent me the handle with the pins on backwards so that is how i broke one.

Love the pics. So your going with a lift. Does that mean bigger tires. Nice job so far.

Thanks, and I actually may not lift it, if i did i would end up getting bigger tires and have to re-gear. Plus it wasnt specified but i think the truck already had a lift in it, those are 31" tires on there now
