Looking great Rick!
An MB painted yellow . . . you'll need to work on that. Nice rig!
Thanks for all the help getting my Jeep on the road. Super excited, now it's just time to change all the fluids and get it in tip top shape.
Looks good! Now it's time to let the enjoyment begin.
Seeing as photobucket is holding my pictures for ransom money, I decided to post these again. Happy 4th of July.
Offsetflanged Dana 44 rear with Eaton E-locker, 11 inch drums with emergency brake. Dana 30 front with 12 inch disc and lunch box locker and Warn premium hubs. T-15 attached to Dana 20 twin stick, Saturn overdrive, Terra Low. 4.3 multiport Vortec, PS/PB with XJ hanging pedals, XJ emergency hand brake, Warn 8274 with homemade front bumper and rear swing tire carrier, also home built. Theres more, but you get it.
Of the weekend:
The mountains look gorgeous. Good looking jeep too.
Brought this home yesterday, the 4th of July. Its going to be a Dauntless, SM 420 and maybe a Dana 20 with a centered Dana flanged 44 and dana 30 front. What are you thinking. Its my platform for this build. Its a 62 from Mississippi. Note the heater delete plate.
Already has 2 1/2 inch lift with new springs . rear is a Dana 44 tapered with a powerlock in it. Looks freshly rebuilt, but may be selling that and going flanged 44 instead. The F-head will be for sale as well.
Got this yesterday. 42 GPW stock besides the diamond plate and 12v conversion. Body is in pretty good shape, some small rust spots and a hat channel is rusted out.
Nice find on the GPW

sorry photo of lic plate wrong photo......here is photo of my 66 and 70 model
I had a engine light (gm tbi kit) and i found a way to get the code without need a OBD1 scanner.
On Gm tbi if you jump two wire on the scan connector the computer will show the code trought the engine light. It will flash as a sequence.
So find i had a bad O2 sensor. That was the only sensor that i didn't change when i install the tbi kit on my 360 engine. Since i install it the engine light come on occasionnal time when offroading but i never worry too much about it cause is was going away everytime.
but last week the engine light come on when i was driving on the road, thing that never happen on the road before, only on trail.
So i change last night the O2 sensor. When i start the engine after the change, i had a hard time trying to start it and when it start idle was very bad. I took it for a little road test and when i got back everything was running fine. I suspect that the old O2 sensor was not giving a good reading but not enought for the Ecm to give a bad sensor error. So when i put a new sensor i suspect that ECM was trying to ajust itself with the new parameters he got from the O2 sensor, so it may explain why i had a hard time starting it and make it idling.
i did start it this morning (cold start) and everything is working fine.
Glad it's back to normal..
yes, at first i was, how can engine run good with a bad o2 sensor and have problem with the new one, but when you start to think about it the logic take over ahah
