Now it has front and rear disc brakes, QA1 suspension all around, new wheels, 2 car seats in the back, fuel injection and a factory center console modified to add a cupholder.
That thing is beautiful and I want it.

I know, I was kidding. I don't mix the 2 either. (fast cars or offroading and alcohol)

Well, now it matches most of the Jeeps here, tore apart in the garage! Replacing lower control arm, strut rods and pitman arm. Assuming I still have time before the weather breaks, I'll be replacing the master cylinder, adding an adjustable prop valve, and replacing all the brake lines. Have some electrical to do as well on it.

Yeah, I went back and reattached some older pics of it.


Got the new control arms and strut rods in, can't get the pitman arm off, bent the ears open on my puller. Gonna pick up an OTC heavy duty one and try again when it shows up.
