    spring has sprung
    the grass has riz
    garage smells like the inside of a dirty engine.

    122K on jeep first look inside.
    mains looked good, rod brgs slightly rubbed, crank journals good, cam shows wear, timing chain limpish, some carbon on piston, minimal ridge.

    this engine's mine now.

    My rear mounts are shot. Can you post some close-up pics of that work?

    so far I got the metal coated, I'm fabricating parts. there will be more progress pics en route. my mount metal is 3/16", and I want to run across full width with some meat to hinge a drop gate on, so the gate weight is on the body mount structure.

    rear mount parts.
    the angle is bolted to the valance flange, then the 2 plates get welded to the angle in situ. then a cross piece for the gate hinge

    under body is sealed with plastic roof coating.
    This bad boy has just about been spanked... and about ready to mate back on the chassis for the final downhill frolic.

    If I ever get that look in my eye again like I'm going to take anything apart "just to see where we're at", somebody smack me.

    do you mean "more" as in "encore", or "more" as in "give me something I can sink my teeth into?"

    So have you wired it back up yet?
    I did a body swap years ago (YJ body on a CJ frame/front clip). It was waaayyyy more work than I thought it would be.
