  • Finally!

    I drove the jeep out of the garage today, and more importantly, back in under its own power! I checked the archives and found that I started this project 8-20-06 and I am close to being done already! I still have some minor issues but I feel very good about it right now.

    I never claimed to be a speedster at this kind of stuff but, in my defense I have had a heart attack, damn near cut my thumb off and recently encountered another heart related issue since I started this project. I am fine, docs got things working right again so hopefully no more holdups.

    Now to the original question, which was "what would this cost me?" The answer is around two grand and that is waiting for and finding good deals.
    That is all, just wanted to tell the world it works!

              The two grand price was just the engine swap, I also did a few other things like Mosers and heck, I dont even remember what all I done. The only pic I have right now is the shifters, I will get some more tomorrow.


              Morgan, if you really like gorey pics, they were posted in off topic a while back. lol. Its been over a year and the nerves are still all messed up.
