Before and after... a little project turned out to be larger than I thought

Here are some pics of my Jeep. I ended up doing so much more than I expected, I had some wobbles in the trans after putting in a +4 RC lift. I ended up taking everything apart and restoring the dam thing. more pics of the final product coming....

Sorry my computer crashed while posting....here are the after and still coming. I got almost everything in today but did not get pics. I was suppose to just replace the clutch, ended up splitting the transfer case for a new SYE and CV. I figured might as well bed-line underneath, wire wheeled almost all the parts, paint shift plate(mopar blue) paint output shaft, wire wheeled exhaust and cat then repainted, replaced clutch,and much more. took about 3-4 full days.

Looks clean! Nice work! Don't all 'little' projects turn into bigger ones anyways?

Ya, I went super OCD on this tear down but I love my Jeep. A good wire wheel,a few cans of spray paint, a butt load of time and its like new again. Upgrading the SYE/CV and the rest of this project was very rewarding, I love the projects that are costly on the labor side. I am always pleased when I get them done.

Every Jeep should come with a wire wheel. I hit with the wheel, repaint and looks factory...more pics on the way...
