    So, not done but very close. I have to attach the wiring to the firewall and do some sort of loom. Also have to finish the new switch/gauge panel and wire that stuff up.

    Fan is now ran off of the PCM, but I am going to add a switch so it can run on the trail if it were to get hot without it running. The fuel pump is now powered by the PCM. Also put in an acceptable battery isolator/kill switch. Not 100% happy with where it's at, but it will work and is much better than what was there

    Hope to finish the gauges/switches tomorrow and on to the front end.

    Renegade CJ

    Made the gauge/switch panel this afternoon. Once this is in and wired up the wiring project will be complete.



    A small step above the old one

    Got the steering box mount finished today. Have to get some bolts and cut down my spacers. I gained about an inch of wheelbase and got the box up about 4-5 inches in comparison to the old mount.

    Cutting the trac bar mount off is gonna be fun but it will be worth it. Next weekends goal is to have the front end all mocked up and cleaned up.

    Then it will be on to the rear axle truss.

    I think the grill shell I have has the correct lenses in it. If not, will probably swap them over to clear. I knew something looked goofy up front....

    10-4. So you have another grille you are going to run?

    Yeah, I have another 86 tub that is unmolested and rust free. This tub isn't terrible but I had already bought the other tub. It's in a picture on the first page I think. The hood on this one is trashed also.

    Plan is to leave the patina look on the blue Renegade and cut the rear similar to what Nick and Marcus have. I absolutely despise a comp cut tub.

    Renegade CJ got a Valentine's Day gift. Steering arms that allow tie in with the knuckle.

    The further this build goes the more excited I'm getting. Ready to be in a four seat full bodied beat down mobile again!

    So I got a little more wheelbase out of the move than I thought. Went from 104.5" to 108". Could go another 1/2" I think and be perfectly straight on the drag link.

    Think these joints will be OK??

    Is this a trap? How much thread engagement?
    I would like to take a good look at that twisted pitman arm one weekend if I could. I will give you a buzz.
