not quite, I just ordered new shifters from Advanced Adapters, bought a new center console and a few other things. Just waiting on parts, time and warmer weather.

After a few months of waiting for the last few main parts Ive finally gotten to the point which I can start ripping my Jeep apart. Last weekend I mounted the rear airbumps, basically I mounted them right next to the rear coilovers on the outside of the frame, they went on real easy after I modified the mount, they originally came off a 2500 Series Chevy truck.



Ive now started to rip the Jeep apart, like usual Ive got Torx bolts with f'ed up heads, all 6 inside the tub body mounts are SHIT! and one of my windshield hinges broke in half.

Pics from the last few days.

Probably but Ill be done soon enough

This weekend I got the cage fully unbolted, tailgate, complete dash, 80% of the wiring, the tub free from the frame, the front fenders...

This week Ill pull the tub off the frame, pull the front grill/radiator off and then powerwash the drivetrain. I finally got to see what the damage really was with the body mounts and WOW! Im kinda surprised that my tub never came off the frame, not much was there holding things on.

TJ owners, If you can get your factory body mounts out, anti-seeze the F out of them and constantly flush the body mount box out!.
