Took all of the the old faded peeling woodgrain off. Didn't take as long as I thought. Just the right amount to heat gun and four plastic scrapers.

chrisnsarah 07-14-2008 09:11 AM

Pick-a-part on Sun morning and got misc parts for the Super, the J2000, and '79, then replaced rear brake shoes and rotated tires on J10 in the afternoon.

ChiefTawny 07-14-2008 09:32 AM

jeeping1974 07-14-2008 12:15 PM

pineymike 07-14-2008 02:05 PM

Used it!
:D Towed my boat to the ramp and tried out my {new to me} motor gettin' reddy for crabbin':thumbsup:

orangecherokee 07-14-2008 02:21 PM

threw the 14 bolt under it, bled the brakes, charged the battery (it was dead :( ) and drove it around a little.

shimniok 07-14-2008 02:55 PM

New tires !!! as well as wiring clean up, and R&R of front spring bushing, tighten down exhaust bolts on pass side and hoping for the best, and reinstall door panels...

hockeydawg 07-14-2008 02:58 PM

Just started removing the interior and exterior trim to start prepping it for body work.

BrianAg95 07-14-2008 08:48 PM

Used the 88 to run to the store...
Took the dead spare from the 91 and had a working tire remounted onto the rim.

j10er 07-14-2008 09:21 PM

Painted the tailgate and added BJ's lettering

HOOT 07-14-2008 10:49 PM

Unhooked the J20 from the car hauler and drove it across town to the grocery store. Spent a half hour trying to convince someone it is a JEEP. Scared a few people and got the attention of our local copper. My truck now chirps second gear... ooopssss "Did I do that" ;)

Actually I think the tranny is going out but it sounds wicked right now. The hood gets put back on the Honcho and rolled back out to the yard.

deadironrat 07-15-2008 11:03 PM

Picked up a ford 10.25 for my J10, also scored a 12,000lbs mile marker hydraulic winch.

olllllo 07-15-2008 11:07 PM

Replaced a broken rear drive shaft and got 'er moving after 2 weeks of sitting idle! Drove it in on my 64 mile round trip commute today. I guess I was feeling like being generous to the oil companies.:eek:

Headhoncho 07-16-2008 09:21 AM

Put my Demon 2bbl back on and passed NJ emissions (good for 2 years)FINALLY with the help of a new catalytic converter. Also re-engineered a ch*vy Astro class III receiver to fit under my Honcho to pull a trailer to the Pa. Jeeps show this weekend. Next is rear disc brakes on the 14 bolt. Found all the parts, need to find time.


68_Gladiator 07-16-2008 10:13 AM

swapped out my broken D44 front axle for another one with warn hubs already installed and 33 inch mud terrains. also put the brakes back together. today is the new starter install. bucket seats form an 80's cherokee instaled. also picking up a 3rd gladiator to add to my collection as a parts vehicle. whatever i dont use i may part out before scrapping it.

Long&Low 07-16-2008 10:32 AM

I just accumulated parts. I picked up an A/C compressor that is 134 compatable, picked up a TJ gas tank, skid and fuel pump for the 4.0ltr conversion, and a repalcement front fascia all for the J10.

Luntec 07-16-2008 11:26 AM

I finally re-installed my fuel tank. Few of the holes lined up after I repaired the frame, so that made for an interesting afternoon with some colorful language. But that puppy's back in. Now I' just have to double check some wiring and torque some nuts, fix the gangsta lean on the driver's seat and try to start her up after two years of sitting.

bmoose 07-16-2008 11:53 AM

My weekend!
After dis-assembling 2 Quadra-tracs and cleaning both to find good parts. I made 1 good unit.
Got all of the shafts aligned, chain tight and bolts torqued to spec then stabbed the little muther.
Filled up with fluid, connected drive shafts ( propeller shafts in AMC book) linkages and cables then tried to move it out of its tracks. Not enough transmission fluid, so 4 qts later ITS ALIVE!!!
So I started doing figger 8's in the local mall parking lot to get the cones lubed up.
Security didn't like that so I made do at a couple of dead end streets.
Tried the lowrange, linkage not right. Minor adjustment and all is good.
Tried E-drive, no workee:mad: . Have vacuume but no light or engagement.
Looks like next weekend I'll pull the back half of the case off and try to fix e-drive.
But in the mean time it runs and pulls like a monster. new chain, cones with gears and fluid make a BIG difference.
Now I just need to go muddin':D

j20brett 07-16-2008 12:49 PM

I finally put my exhaust back on last night (ripped it off in early feb). I just want to say to all who have welded their exhausts on underneath the vehicle, i have a newfound respect for y'all!

OK, gotta kick up an old post but these are a week or few old. Been putting the Buick 350 back together nice and slow.. Mostly because my day job sucks and I have lots of mandatory overtime.

pineymike 07-21-2008 03:17 AM

My 18yr old son drove it to work on sat! I wheeled it all day sunday!

Cranky_Joe 07-21-2008 10:26 AM

Looked at it and sighed. :(

HectorHeadgear 07-21-2008 10:41 AM

New points, condensor, rotor and fuel filter. Gotta keep the thing running, or I won't have anything to drive!

Also rigged up a new stereo. Bought it all at Wal-mart. 6x9 speakers: $20. New cd player with aux-in head unit: $75. Speaker wire: $5. Wiring it all up under my front seat: priceless.

uglyjeep 07-21-2008 11:13 AM

Twin-sticked my np205!

stevo 07-21-2008 11:40 AM

Old rusty gas tank and rear axle out. Mocked up the new tank (just need to paint the frame and get it in now). Then new rear axle goes in. Oh, and bought and NOS LH tail light for for the busted one.

rstep 07-21-2008 08:14 PM

Took the chero out for a test run after the SOA and got hung up on this speed bump at a local 4x4 shop.

The old chero did great with a 787 score and for the effort won it's class and a new set of Rancho shocks.Now to get some 33's under it.

HOOT 07-21-2008 10:16 PM

Made a lawn ornament out of the Honcho again until more money comes in.
Scrubbed the heck out of the J20 to turn it into a red truck again. Wow what a difference, guess it has been a couple of years since its last bath.
Took it out for a short cruise to show it off of course, then brought it back home and fired it up for the neighbors. Those Dunlop MT's sound wicked screaming and smoking. :eek:

Heckofadeal 07-21-2008 11:23 PM

started taking apart the 401 to put in a cam and some other goodies. Crossing my fingers hoping Bulltear ships my distributor geaset before my days off this week!

J10_Jimbo 07-22-2008 06:19 AM

I got my motor running in the '84 and got it out of the shop, so we pulled baby_hewy's truck in and pulled his motor apart. I think we found his problem.

Cut the fenders and added some flair!

phisohex 07-26-2008 12:05 PM

did the swap to a cs144 still hooking up wiring, did some fiberglass work on some holes...fixed light short.. hopefully it will run again soon.

Keman 07-26-2008 03:52 PM

This weekend I fixed the power steering leak (replaced the high hose) and narrowed down the exhaust manifold leak... (Think I'll pay a shop to fix that!! :( )
Anybody make a set of headders for a Kaiser 327?

eyotajeeper 07-26-2008 08:48 PM

Got my '72 J4000 running yesterday with a new flexplate from rockauto. Dropped the 360 out of my '74 CJ5 into it for now 'til I get that all redone.

ALso stole the wheels and tires off the CJ, 35/15/15 Swampers.

Kid got carried away with the rattle can when I had my back turned so it got a racing stripe and a new nickname(the red sled).

Gonna take it to the woods tommorow and cause some pain.:eek:

snoopy 07-27-2008 02:31 AM

Finished the plumbing on my new Aerotech fuel tank and looked at the body lift. Gotta figure out whats making the cab sit cockeyed before I can tighten it down. Really looking forward to changing out the ball joints and brake rotors on the front next.

badscooter 08-18-2008 10:07 PM

completly rebuilt the front knockles on the d44
and went over the whole truck with real fine grit steel wool to get the pait to look halfway decent
