2016 is here, where are the Jeeps

Mine is about to get some much needed work. All of them. That being said Rush Offroad has some truck competitions I would like to go see.
Where's everyone at?

Hey mid westerners

New rear bumper for the truck then the water pump started to squeal not sure if that's related but been soaking bolts with pblaster so I can do that, also recurved the distributer in the wag waiting for a test run! Replaced the weatherstrip with the eBay type and now they shut completely again. Waiting for some time to dig into the wags locks and window that fell into the door.

I've got the new engine in (Rebuilt AMC 360) ... still trying to get the T18 put together and bolted up to the Dana 20... hoping to make good progress in the coming weekends so I can start driving it again! Once it's back together, I'd be interested in doing something.

Injection will start going in this weekend. Oil pump rebuild as soon as it gets here. Then Axles, which will take care of the steering issues, and the scary brakes with the help of hydro-boost.

Then I'll give it a good shakedown and see if its ready for a longish trip.

A couple months yet, but getting there.

When did you score this beast? I didn't know you came over to the dark side of Quadra-trac. I like it...

Nice to see everyone still kicking.. Mars gets the award for keeping his on the road..
I just sold off the old 81 J20 I had in the drive so it is time to get started on my keepers. 1980 J20 Utility,gets different engine installed, 1985 J10, all new rear end parts and new axle shafts and wheels, and 77 Honcho. the 77 will be getting everything engine,axles and all replaced on it,mainly going offroad with it. Still need to get my axle shafts ordered. A guy at work is going to machine me some hub-centric center caps for my 5 slot mags. I can have those made when the new axles get here so they can be measured.

I got side tracked with a landscaping project that was long over due but is very near completion now. Next weekend is my volunteer weekend for an old Louisville cemetery. Weekend after that is possibly a weekend run to FL to see Mom. Then after that it is all Jeep with a little F-350 throw in there as well. but mainly all Jeep.
I need 2 motors installed and one pulled still. I will need hands for those. I have all the necessary tools and equipment to make it go more painlessly. I'm also removing the complete dog houses for both installs. Wrench -O- thon's are coming soon. Going to do a sleep over weekend camp out in the yard for any out of towners, cough..retro, blazer, John, cough cough that wants to come. It may not be a private as Retro's place but it's not like sleeping on the sidewalk either. I mean you can sleep on my sidewalk if you want, my buddy Alan used to all the time. It's just more private on the rear patio and yard.

Wellllllll, may just have to see when the time comes. Pulling 5-12hr shifts pretty much every week , with 6+7 coming soon. Trying to get a number of things done, only one of which is my Jeep . The funds are nice, but this mandatory stuff may require a well deserved vaca/trip by then.

May end up having a WOT of my own later this year. If I can get everything else done, and get all my junk in order that is.
Long list.......
fix all leaks
TBI since I still didn't get to it
trans/doubler swap
big axles rebuilt and installed
fix all leaks
dual tanks
toss out the stinking blocks, and re-lift rear suspension my way
cutting brakes
fix more leaks
complete redo of OBA, P.O. has it "functional" kinda.
replace rear corners
get rid of stupid hood scoop
revamp/clean up the removable top......like the OBA, functional, but not very cleanly done.
other body work ..... add second filler neck.... air hose storage (long story)
Monsta-liner/Raptor/whatever I decide for "paint"
build bumpers
+ tire carrier
more leak repair
new driveshafts
OBW
storage organization stuff
interior stuff (a list in itself)
after the electrical is all functional with everything how I want it, pull all wiring and build new harness -- minus all the rats-nests and spliced junk...... wonder who might be able to help with that ??? (Woodchomper ? )
........................... there is more I am missing. Oh, did I mention leaks?

And for the record my 81 is "on the road", and I am hoping to only have it down for a few days at a time as I get things done.

I just dont trust it to keep the fluids all on the inside for a long trip yet, but its getting there.

Had the j10 about 10 years or so. You know the song; needed a truck couldn't afford a new one but could keep an old one on the road, it came outta Middletown from a church that only plowed snow resulting in low,low miles little rust surprisingly keeps on running enough to keep the yard squared away.

I can sleep on the sidewalk??? COUNT ME IN!

Seriously, I am so close to having the Cherokee finished I can taste it. I took care of the battery charging issue yesterday by connecting the 140 amp Powermaster alternator directly to the battery with some 2 gauge welding cable. Now I can turn everything electrical on and the batteries stay charged, even at idle. I have a couple of exhaust leaks that are driving me batty, hopefully I'll have them taken care of in another couple of days.

Just rebuilt the powr-lok in the rear of my '91 two weekends ago. I'm itching for a road trip now. I'll be working out of town for most of May and possibly June. However, if something gets planned over a weekend that I'm home then I'll be there!

I just came in from the garage where I'm getting ready to install a new trans/tc. As soon as that is done, and I put a few local miles on her, I'm off to sleep on Hoot's sidewalk for a couple of days.
