Got the rear axle painted and swapped into the new frame. Going to repaint the diff later on, the paint didn't react well with the primer I think, damn thing peels easily.

Finally found the time to swap the 4.0L over to the new frame with the help of my pops.




Next is to get the driveline done.

I'm trying to get it done in the next couple of months.  ;D



Next up is finishing up the frame work, driveline, connecting lines, etc. Then I can finally put that body on.

Nope, just wanted to paint it.  :)



Hopefully the fuel pump is in tomorrow so I can get the fuel tank bolted up.

Got the new pump today. Installed after school.

Also did a little undercoating before:

Old broken pump, must take a hard hit to break these.



Tech question:

Should there be zero play in the fan clutch? I reinstalled mine and felt a little wobble.

It does! Thanks man. Got some more done today.




Got the old frame removed and chopped it into a few pieces.
Also gutted the interior, going to swap over the new airbags this week, replace the clockspring. Need to do a little body work, then I can swap it over.

Thanks man.

I'm hoping to by the end of December.

I gotta save up.  ;D

Sorry for the slow updates. Busy, busy, busy.
All torqued except control arms.

Put the "new" wheels/tires on, put a rubberized coating underneath, cleaned a few things up.

If I get my exhaust issue fixed tomorrow, maybe, just maybe I can get the body over.

My garage is getting messy.  ::)
