Lots of stuff going on, but no progress on this one. Will soon. Jeep ADHD right now while redoing two bathrooms.

Sold the Dana 44s from under the Scrambler today. Too much axle for its future. Springs later, but for now a set of WTs. Something closer to this.

I found a set of 7" last year. Made a trade deal with Tom (most original 8 @ Sand Hollow last year) to polish them for me. First one showed up tonight. These are going on the 8.

That cleaned up nicely... with some stripper and some elbow grease, they come out really nice.

Very nice... did you have them built? or just a very good CL score?cb
Swap deal. After >10+ years I built my 8 too trail and not enough street to actually enjoy so I sold my narrowed 44/'86 CJ 44 with 4.88s and ARBs to a guy who was rebuilding a 7 with these.

Long day. Trimmed and put a new lip on the fenders (side pipes), fixed a few cracks and holes, got it all sanded but the grill. Hope to get it in primer by Monday. 20200905_155326.jpg 20200905_161815.jpg 20200905_163808.jpg 20200905_162051.jpg 20200905_163819.jpg 20200905_184915.jpg 20200905_192453.jpg
