Next time we go over there for a Jeep it'll be with an npr truck w/flatbed or trailer.. We missed out on 2 cheap ones with stupid problems that we could fix in a day. We can grab people's projects running or not

Ya its funny how many of those you can find over there. That was the deal with mine when i got it. Had a spark plug that got dropped before insertion. No fire on one cylinder. Didnt even have to buy a new one just straighten ground electrode.

Broke two bits trying to get doors moved, ended up welding nuts to 9 of 12 screws in order to get them loose and off.
Still got to adjust windshield just a bit but its all on.
Guess what color the doors are under that nasty green?

Fuel efficency is rad. My 12 valve gets 19mpg towing. Makes long hauls affordable.

When I did the wide chain kit before summer I used the back half of a different tcase when reassembling, as the previous owner of said tcase stripped out the threads where the tail housing meets up.. I probably should have checked the front output bearings at the time but was in a bit of a rush so I threw it back together.. it did fine on the pinehurst/eagle creek trip but started popping again on compressor.. so now i have to tear it apart again and see what actually failed. Im guessing ill end up having to replace the front and rear bearings though
