Passenger axle shaft is complete. I had to grind the crap out of it to get it to fit without binding. Gonna have to do the same for the other side.

Driver side finished up. Still need to install the Reid bronze bushing in the high steer arm but this side is just about finished.

- I need to install the front shaft so I can set my pinion angle both front and rear.
- I have to have it installed to route the exhaust around it so that will happen shortly after.
- Finish out the brakes. Can't finish the brakes until the brackets are burned into place for fear of testing them out and breaking the tack welds.
- Wire the gauges.(Easy)
- I've been having a go round with another local jeep buddy. He had the same shop install his gear set and he is having problems. He took the axles to John Sumner and we have found a laundry list of problems. I'm having problems with my rear axle so I'm going to pull my axles and take them to John so it is done right.
- Fluids in the tcase and both axles.
- Need to bend up tube to install both sets of ORI's. Then need to have them charged up.

I forgot one of the main items on the list.

- Find motivation.

I am so burned out on this whole project. I know it sounds like complaining and for the most part it is. But it is the truth. I went to the Ford dealership this morning and bought the remaining bolts needed to install my drive shafts. 12 bolts. $25 bucks. I left with such a disgusting taste in my mouth because I had to spend more money on this jeep.

How's your project going?

Ehhh...Im in the same boat. More money needed, and more money spent...not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel yet to make it seem worth it. Ill be ordering my engine harness soon so once I get it fired up hopefully it will give me some renewed motivation.

Im running into things like you are, all the little stuff that nickel and dimes you to death. annoying.

Same boat.. I don't know where to get any either, when you find some let me know.

Some days it's about money, other days I am disgusted that summer is almost over and I have spent so much time on it and missed out on other things. Been trying really hard to get it finished before kid #2 gets here in December but I don't even know if that'll happen.

I think the hard part for me is I have a huge list of things to do and 3-4 more difficult items. I need to get the small items off my list so I only have a few things to focus on. I've been staring at my jeep for a week wondering where I am going to fit this york compressor and the york really has nothing to do with making it drivable, a bunch of wasted time. I really want to do things as close to right as I can the first time, and other days I just want it done.

I fear taking a week off because it would be really easy for that week to turn in to 4 to 6 months.

I took a week a few times in my build and it was good for me. It is hard to go out there again at first but once you're back with progress the motivation came back. that's my experience with it anyway.

I don't have the availability to take a week off. It takes me about a month to get a weeks worth of free time. It would be nice to just focus on the jeep but I don't have that kind of luxury.

That is usually why I hit it on the weekends. I can just focus on the jeep and nothing else. The normal routine has been to clean up the garage on Friday nights. Then get to working on Saturday morning. I get it in my head what I'd like to get done through the week and I try to get parts squared away so I can make it happen. Keeping the garage clean is a big help.

This weekend I would like to get the carrier bearing installed so the front shaft is finished up. Then move on to the upper control arms. I think I'm going to move them outside the frame rails as it got real tight when I installed the carrier bearing. It was much larger than I remembered. So I will have to figure out something new.

Motivation is a tough one lately. The heat and humidity has been a killer here. After dealing with it all day at work its hard to get out there and work in it again in the garage. I am getting close to the end but so is the deadline. Just keep plugging away!

I love mine. It is awesome because it can get everything up off the ground. Just over the last month the bearings spit out of the caster wheels and I need to replace them. But I will always have this type of jack available. It is my own fault for jacking the jeep up in the air and moving it side to side but it has held up very well. I've had this jack since my last rig so I've had it for awhile.

I have probably had mine >10 years, and had to replace a spring and fix the plunger on the master, but it has been great, just wish I could have gotten a second one.
last year i got a frame jack, and it is great for the Jeep and truck, but anything with lots of plastic is hard to safely lift.

I can not wait to see this in action. She's coming together quite beautifully that's for sure. I wouldn't be surprised if this thread gets over 500,000 views.

Before there's a single picture of it doing something other than sitting in a garage.


Motivated yet?
