Yeah she was lucky. The drivers "b" pillar is touching her seat, not pushing on it but touching. She took a decent blow to behind her left ear, guessing thats what did it. Was also lucky when the "a" pillars hit they ended up pushing up on the roof creating that point upward vs downward.


If you drive by, and the green explorer is thier, stop and have a beer I am always well stocked .

And a transmission, radiator, leaf springs, scrap converters, and whatever else I can sell to recoup $ as the wife isn't paying for anything towards fixing it and every penny spent is pennies spent out of the buggy budget .

I also had to get with them my winch motor filled with water just sitting in the front of my xj and rusted all of the connections and motor to the point of not working. They sent me a new motor after seeing a couple pics

9am


Around 10am


About Noon




1pm


3ish




5:30ish







Ended up transferring all of the under hood harness from the 98 to the donor 97. Swapped dash from 98 to 97. And ended up having to swap the entire body harness from the 98 into the 97. Spent almost two hours chasing a fawking ground to get it to start. All I have left to do is reassemble the interior (carpet and seat, dash already in) and mount the front bumper. But I will do all that at work, it is driveable as is.

Previous owners on the 97 are nothing short completely DISGUSTING, interior was so trashed and gross. Taking 90% of the interior from the 98 and installing into the 97 to replace the gross shit.


I think in the end the wife is getting to dd the green ex (mine) and I am gonna dd the new black ex. The body is in excellent shape and I think I am gonna black everything out and make this one really nice. Leave the green one as is and it will still get wheeled but the black one won't other then silver lake.

So ended up with a 97 "shell" with 98 frame, engine and all related components, all wiring from a 98, and all interior from a 98. So other then the vin it is pretty much a 98 still.
