Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Finally did the removable door mod last night. Love how much you can see with those huge 2 door doors gone. They are heavy as all heck though, or maybe I'm just a wimp!!!

Big week. Closing on a new house on Friday morning! Looking forward to having a garage again!

Went to the gambler 500 in Crossville... That was a heck of a party. I had never seen so many beat up Subarus...

I built a deck. Bought a hot tub. Sold a hot tub (That the dude destroyed while unloading it off my trailer).

Haven't touched a Jeep in weeks.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I'm closed and moved in. Just unpacking slowly but surely. I only have the XJ in the garage now. I'll move the XK in when I empty some boxes. I did get the ZJ home. It fired right up with a jump on Sunday, but wouldn't stay running when the cables came off. I was going to drive it home. I called a wrecker on Monday to bring it home. I put the cables on it again to pull it out of storage and get it in place for pick up. Took the cables off and the damn thing stayed running.

No pictures yet. Eventually.

Being new to welding and putting an artec truss on the Dana 30 is very time consuming.... I keep walking by it to burn another couple beads on... I don't know how hot it has to be to make it warp, so I'll stay on the safe side!

Just picked up another 2 door, 5 speed, 4x4 with a 4.0.
Good to be back to my roots. Hope to get back in touch with some old friends.

Hey Ed! It's a '90 with a swapped in HO motor, AX15, and the newer style np231 without the tailshaft housing. currently has 3.55 gears and d30/35, and a budget boost spacer/shackle kit.
I more or less plan to get some cheap 31's and some lockers, and try not to destroy it, lol. Homebrew bumpers and trimmed fenders may come along, but I'm trying to have fun with my kid on a budget, so close to stock will be the ticket for now.
I'd post a photo, however, the jeep isn't much to look at, nor do I currently have an image hosting service.
It is straight, and I've repaired what rust was in the floor, and Herculiner'd the entire floor, and I'm planning a cheap roll or spray-on tan or OD green paint job.
I'll probably tackle some electrical issues on my next day off, as the gauges, turn signals, and taillights aren't currently working. I did notice when I was last in the jeep that most of the fuses are missing, so that's a place to start.
I also need to wire up the coolant temp switch to run the fan relay, but that'll only take a few minutes. It's just a by-product of using the newer cooling system in an old Renix jeep.
I also need to replace the windshield and do an alignment, but it's all gonna come in time.

Welcome back Eric. Glad to see you back in the game.

In response to your return, here's a picture I took last time I ran with you.

Rear frame stiffeners are on. Now just to fix the rust holes in the rear floor....
Maybe this thing will be able to hit a trail soon.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Went to the junkyard and got a new mirror and tail light for two different Jeeps. I also got a set of tires for the Ranger. I installed a new belt on the ZJ. I installed the door mirror and glued on the rear view mirror on the windshield. I’ve never done that job before but it seems to be working.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I don't have a headliner or windshield in Annie, but I installed the sun-visor yesterday!

Good to have some garage time, isn't it Ed.
