Welp, I've made almost no progress on this in the last year but have recently got the itch again. Pulled the intake a few nights ago to make room for an aluminum unit to bolt the sniper on top of.



...and we had the seats reupholstered six months ago.

Those seats look amazing! The hole in the glove box door is either for the clock or there's an emblem that can fit in there.

Yeah, I have the little cover for the glove box door. I was referring to the hole someone cut in the dash for the aftermarket radio. Although while we're on the subject...

I'm desperately looking for an early glove box clock if anyone knows a buddy that might have one!

I really wish someone hadn't cut that hole in the dash for the stereo. might just turn it into a little cubby dash hole, or maybe a factory radio delete plate would cover it?




This is such a cool rig, man! For the dash, are you planning on taking it out and painting it? If so, you could definitely tack in some little mounting pieces and go with either an oem unit or retrosound or something similar. Definitely subscribed to this thread. Your tires just gave me extra motivation to get my new tires mounted.

Great stuff!

If all goes well, we can toast to accidental successes.

I'm convinced I'm just too dumb to know that I can't restore this old truck...

my heart sank when I saw and thought my machine had a din radio installed. turned out to be just a face plate so happy banana dance there. regardless, in looking I found these (not sure if you're aware of them):

your jeep looks great, sitting on the trailer I thought, that thing just needs a good wash... and low and behold, after a good wash it looks amazing. looking forward to new posts.
