    Build Day July 24th.

    Hi folks. I've decided to call upon you folks for some help in getting some work accomplished on my wife's YJ. Time is running out before our vacation in the end of august and lots of work is left to be done. Most of which i dont know how to do....lol

    I've got permission to use my parents place on july 24th to try and host a build party and would certainly appreciate any efforts by you fellow members.

    I know there is a couple folks already willing to help out so it was suggested i start a thread and post what needs to be done ahead of time.

    so here goes....

    The YJ has a 4.3/700r4/231 tcase w/sye. mounts are not welded in place as of yet because the driveline angle hasn't been set yet. (one of the things i'm not sure about tackling on my own).

    - the motor will also need to be wired up.
    i believe all the wiring and necessary gm hardware is there, but wont know till someone who knows what they are doing looks at it. torque convertor is not bolted into place yet, but is in.

    1.- all the usual bullshit that goes with putting in a new motor. oil change, plugs, wires, pcv valve, yadda yadda yadda.

    2.- skid plate fabrication for tummy tuck
    sarge volunteered for this task

    3.- front shocks and hoops to be fabricated and installed.
    tubes are bent, just need to flex the jeep and finish off..

    4.- trans cooler, and rad installation

    5.- the transmission kickdown will need to be setup as well.
    I have a ratchet shifter that i THINK will work...lol. if not, i'll find one.

    7.-brake lines need to be reconnected and extensions installed.
    have extensions.

    8.- complete wiring for the jeep. kill switch, tail lights,electric fan, dash and gauges, start.

    9.- install new seats, seat belts, tuffy console.
    would prefer to mount seats to the roll cage, but for now they are on yj frames to save time.

    10.- front and rear bumper fabrication. (not priority)

    11.- secure roll cage to tub. ( will make frame tie-ins later on) DONE

    12.- drain fuel tank and handle fuel system.
    (chassis sat for a while with the fuel tank exposed, so there is a good chance of moisture in the tank... hopefully not rotted...lol)

    13.- rear passenger side corner needs body mount installed
    will need to open up the box from the inside to get a nut on the body mount bolt.

    14.- may need differnt shackles made.

    15.- bolts bolts bolts..... everything needs to be tightend or checked. the trans, t-case, driveshafts, will all need replacements

    16. - remove rear track bar and bracket.

    17. - fab a set of sway bar discos
    Jb70 has a set of discos he will be bringing! THANKS JB!

    18. - install soft top.

    Thats just off the top of my head for now. i'm sure the motor and trans stuff will be a series of small jobs and pains in the asses.


    Food and drinks will be provided. since it is only a day build, we cannot have anyone getting drunk, but some beer or other alcoholic beverages will be provided to those that can drink responsibly. I trust you understand.

    we have a fair selection of tools, but you may want to bring your own preferance of hand tools. sockets, and wrenches are scattered at our place, but we do have a 220 mig, plasma cutter and a good supply of air.

    Let me know if you are interested in helping out. I know my Mrs will certainly appreciate it as much as i will. Theres talks of a sunset ride on the beach nearby to finish off the day.

    if theres something in particular job you want to tackle, let me know the parts you will require, and i will get them ready for you. The main thing is to try and get it running. once its at that stage, it should be home free from there....lol (crossing fingers)

    Thank you for reading.

    Billy and Kelly.

    driver side windshield hinge has been replaced, but now doesnt match the passenger side, so it needs to be replaced as well...lol.
