    Rosco1974's 1985 CJ7 Project

    After my CJ8 false start I still couldn't scratch that itch. Called my buddy who always has "an extra" project. He rebuilds Jeeps from the SW so this one was on the back burner. Needs the usual (floors, sides, etc.). Best part: deal includes a donor I sold him with a good running 304/T-176 and...

    Metro LM99 Door Seals

    Installed a set this evening. Fit better than the last set I bought (dont remember brand). All but two tabs lined up. Length was good. Doors close without looking like a busted can of biscuits. Overall, I can recommend.

    Warn Fog Lights

    As a fan of most things Warn these came up on Ebay. Inexpensive alternative to Marchal to those looking. Going on a CJ7 project I picked up.

    Waggy Steering Woes

    Decided to work on my steering. It was previously set up with tie rod in factory holes and cross over up top. Steered well, but the pitman had to be bent up and interfered with the sway bar. Looking for insight. Have the M.O.R.E. steering box mount that will move it forward 1.25" but would...

    Dana 44 Rear Identification - Dana's Stamping

    Went to the salvage yards today looking for a Dana 44 rear for an upcoming project. Whatever I find will eventually be 5 on 5.5 to match a set of 15x8 CJ wheels. Came across this one, but cannot make heads/tails out of the Dana stampings on it. It partially matches their pattern for Ford...
