Re: The Stupidist Jeep on the Planet

Hose that shit down with some WD40. I like the chrome breather but I dont think it will clear the hood. Maybe on the back of the valve cover it would but not the front. I could be wrong.

Re: The Stupidist Jeep on the Planet

i bit the bullet and bought the dowel pins from the dealer, the $7ea price tag hurt but i need to GSD

got the motor and trans together quickly, its amazing how easy it is with them outside the vechicle

was missing one of the torx bolts, but a starter bolt fits perfect

them with the help of my brother got the motor/trans in


then bolted up the slave cyl.

the heat from the day really kicked my ass, but tomorow i plan on really kickin ass and knocking alot of shit out, including welding projects even though im outta gas
