Started Re-Training at my new job today. Funny thing...we spent about 20 minutes in front of the Jeep instead, letting everyone Check it out lol.

/Pride.....

Satellite Company was able to find a good location and way to hook it all up. He said we SHOULD be good for about 15 years.

Still around. Haven't had any extra cash to spend on the Jeep but my Day Dreaming projects are getting more and more refined lol.

Getting through my Son's HS Graduation this week and hosting a BBQ on Sun AND fighting a Respiratory Infection (bleh) just haven't left a lot of OOMPH left at the end of the day.

I do go out and turn on my Offroad lights now and then

My friend snagged my tonneau cover and Bikini Top today from the PO.

They in pretty damn good shape. Was hoping the Bikini Top was mesh. It's not but whatever lol.

Will test fit them and get some pics

Ok so I WAS a bit confused. It's a Bikini Top and Windjammer.




And that's my lovely wife modeling for me in the Jeep.

REALLY REALLY REALLY hate to say this....

But I've been in an argument with myself all day. I just paid $4/gallon for gas. My Round trip commute is 34 miles.

The wife's Durango does about 60 miles on a road trip commute. It's costing $75/week to run the wife's and about $50ish a week to run mine. We both don't earn a LOT of money so I've unfortunately been tossing the idea around of selling the YJ and getting a Honda

Wife can't drive stick and Honda autos are crap. Not to mention her beast is in better shape and actually gets better mileage than my Heep

So this weekend I'm doing an internal battle of selling the Ole Girl and grabbing me a 92-95 Honda Civic Hatchback (about the only 4 cyl car I can tolerate). My friend has one and gets about 35-40 mixed driving so that would cut my fuel bill down from $100 every 2 weeks to about 35ish every 2 weeks. So I'll be keeping an eye on fuel prices and if they don't start going down soon I fear I'll have sell Ole Grey

So with a Heavy Heart, I'm going to look at a couple cars today. I fear the only thing I have to report on this project is removing my CB Radio in preparation for a trade.

I'd like to thank everyone for following the build as far as I could go and I'm REALLY going to miss my Jeep but with fuel prices like they are (and will be), coupled with the distance I have to travel, it just isnt economical to drive it anymore as a Daily Driver. Someday I'll be back when I'm back on my feet but for now, I'd like to close the project with a Thank you and good memories. I'd rather let someone else have a great time in this great Jeep who can enjoy it instead of my adding more and more miles and getting partially neglected cause I couldn't afford to build it anymore AND Daily it.

Well this thread is Officially closed.

Ole Grey is gone.

Straight traded for a 1992 Honda Civic Hatchback SI. I went last night and looked at it but the owner couldn't get back in time. So went out again today. He REALLY wanted my Jeep. Along the way 5th gear blew out in the Jeep. No warning at all just BOOM. New Owner didn't care he had planned to rebuild the entire power train anyways. He even gave me $200...$100 for the new tags due next month and $100 for my time last night.

I'm going to miss my Heep but to be honest it feels SOOOO nice to fill the tank from almost E to Full for $28. And go 134 miles before getting to 3/4 of a tank lol.

I got a couple friends who are Honda guys and they already have parts (upgrades) they gonna give me for free lol.

Thanks for sticking around and maybe someday I'll be back when I'm better paid and closer to work! take care everyone

Hey thanks a lot Monster, maybe I'll hit ya up. It has a D15B7 with a HF transmission.

I'm leaning towards doing a mini me to it and later on adding a Turbo.

Worth it or should I snag my friend B20 and rebuild it?
