    I got a fair amount accomplished on Sunday... ended up tearing down the front LJ axle in order to clean it up, and swap over the Samurai components as well as all new seals, bearings, etc.

    Also pulled out the front axle out of the parts mobile and got it ready to put into my LJ so I can still roll it around and deliver it to my fabricator for a little body work and custom bumpers.

    Also be sure to check out my build page on Facebook for more pictures and videos:

    Had a little helper working with me today as well:

    Picked up the donor to actually make my LJ into a 1L. Plan is to use it as a toy for now until I finish putting my LJ back together.. then come fall do the engine swap and put the F8A back into the SJ410(I believe it should work no problem) then likely keep it or let it go complete.

    Also was told it has a 2" lift on it, I believe it to be springs but could be worn out by now since the seller(very kind old man) stated he had it for about 10 years and the PO did the lift.

    Well without further delay the pics!

    Well I plan on taking the F10A out of the SJ and put it in the LJ then put the F8A into the SJ to keep it full.. however I may need the calipers from the SJ unfortunately so it might end up cannibalized.. but will do my best to keep it as a running beater. body is shot.. frame is surprisingly in decent shape however has a coat of mud on it so cannot say 100%.

    Started back on the front axle rebuild/SJ413 knuckle out swap. broke down all the parts a bit more today and gave them a nice cleaning in the parts washer... Now just need to clean and sand the axle housing and then time for paint!

    To get the spindle bearing/retainer out simple just use a chisel and a hammer right on the lip of the bearing alternating location

    The front bumper is starting to take shape, once this is done the rear is next. Both will have a 2" hitch receiver to use as both a tow point as well as a winch. So I can use 1 single hitch for both the front/back to keep the weight of the truck as low as possible.

    Also will be keeping the ends of both bumpers open to allow for a lift point for a Hi Lift jack in all 4 corners.. Might weld in a 1/8" rod on the end of each one to provide a bit of a lip to help the Hilift grip the bumper better as well.

    Winch and Hitch Mount for it is almost completed.. Just need to add a D Ring mount to it since I am sure with the puny 3500lb winch I will need to use a Snatch Block alot.

    Thanks, wish I could take credit for it. But unfortunately I can only take credit for the design of it all. The actual fabrication I had to outsource to a buddy with a shop and welder setup since my shop is unfortunately not built yet.. and I must admit I am not the best welder ATM.

    So, I ended up purchasing a new drivers seat today.. my old original one has seen better days as well does not have a head rest. I still am keeping it for future use though.

    Found this seat on sale as Princess Auto(Canada's version of Harbor Freight) for 79.99 it was just too good to not pass up. Unfortunately they only had one left so I couldn't get a matching one for the passenger side.

    It is 19" wide x 18" deep x 21" high(without headrest)

    As you can see there is going to be some work getting it all to fit but shouldn't be too bad.




    Here you can see the measurements of the mounts:


    As opposed to the stock seat:


    As well as a side by side view:


    But it folds:


    Has an adjustable limiting bolt for the recliner:


    However it doesn't go back far due to the square tube.. if you were to drill it and retap it you could get it further back or by using a smaller bolt.


    Here is the seat with no brackets:


    And all the brackets that came off:


    It is in a bit better shape than the stock seat:

    Yeah I ended up just ordering another one right now for the passenger.. I think it would bug me having 2 different sets of seats in this thing. Now just need a small bench seat for the rear.
