Thanks guys. Yes, Mira's getting started much younger than me (I think I was 30 when I took a welding class).
I got Mira's front axle & control arms pulled tonight. I have to say that I really, REALLY like work on this clean Jeep. The control arm bolts came out like butt-ahhh. It's not what I'm used to when dealing with when working on old Jeeps. Next on the docket...finish removing the dash & firewall bits, and drop the gas tank (it'll be getting the newer poly tank from the '99 XJ driveline donor).
