Renegade CJ

Got a couple things accomplished yesterday. Pressed in the races and packed the front wheel bearings. Installed the front axles and clearanced the knuckles for the new shafts. Have to get an 11/16 drill bit to drill my rotors today and will complete the front axle.

If UPS delivers everything I’ll assemble the engine this weekend.
 
Got some more done on the harness today. Had to order more loom to finish everything. Got the new tub all cut up underneath to clear the case. Still have to sit it on the frame to mark for the floor cuts. Started tearing the 8274 apart to clean it up and have it ready to bolt up.
Picking the engine up from the machine shop Monday and will assemble it next weekend.
Yee-Yee

sounds like good progress, you may beat me to the finish.
 
Highly doubt it. It may run and drive but I doubt it will be "finished" until the end of May now. Going to keep the hammer down though. Hoping we don't have to cancel our Moab trip for this year.
 
Moab will be a bit warm but were doing a few days in Colorado as well. Only way to hit both and not be completely miserable. Moab average temps are 87*F per the Google machine and I intend to have A/C in the CJ.
