    Convinced the kid to show up for the honors of putting the finishing touches on pulling the motor.

    Got the motor positioned, made new trans mount and two new motor mounts and welded them in. Pulled it out of the shop though






    I knocked out the rear diff in the truck bringing that ZJ down out of the mountains. Neighbors are getting a good laugh listening to me drive it grinding and clanking, so I picked this boat anchor up cheap for it. Since I always overload that poor truck, it is time for it to grow up a little and run with the big dogs.



    That will go in this weekend and it is back to the shop for Barbie II

    Like the V8 Jeep build II... And that anchor should definitely beef up the rear end of the old tow rig!!

    It has been awhile since the kid has been around to work on his rig. He had his woes with his other tJ so I spend A couple of days at his place and got the clutch straightened out. So I took matters in my own hands. Went to put the transfer case in and found the input gear was too long. Turns out I needed the shortest of these inputs. Then I got the shift collar in backwards So I took it out and apart again and finally got it right.

    This tcase has a Terra 2WD low kit in it, so a different linkage was needed. I built this one out of some odds and ends
