    Default New project...

    So today Im going pick up a new project. Its a '92 Jeep Wrangler with the 4.0L straight 6 and a 5 speed.

    The body isnt great. It doesnt have any major dents or rust, just a bunch of chips in the paint, and all of them have rust in them. The interior is where Ill probably have to spend the most of my time. They guy keeps it topless, so it gets rained in.

    Ill post some pics when I get it.

    Heres a quick pic I took. Its gonna take some work, but it runs fine. This weekend I have to change all the fluids, valve cover gasket, and the rear main seal. Its a two piece seal, so the tranny doe not need to come out. Just got to take the oil pan off.



    And here are the wheels it had on it when I got it. lol



    I plan on making it look something like this. Only in flat OD green.

    The guy had 20's on his Wrangler? What kind of dipshit was this guy?

    I'm a fan of Wranglers. The 4.0's are bullet proof. I had a Cherokee when I was 16 and the 4.0 in that had 211k and still ran like a beast. If you watch Trucks! on Spike on the weekends, they are always building Jeeps.

    I hope you go with a soft top. The hard tops are cool and all, but are a 2 man operation to remove. There's nothing cooler than riding around with no top or doors.

    Photoshop them on some lifted 80's Monte Carlo, someone will bite haha.

    A friend of mine used to have a late 90's Wrangler Sport. Black, 4.0HO, 5 spd, hard top. He sold the hard top and went with a soft top. It had aftermarket wheels, slightly taller tires (which lifted it up a bit but the rear tires rubbed occasionally), and some other odds and ends. It was a great vehicle until he wrecked it drinking and driving.

    Do you plan on taking it to any off road parks? There's a big one up here called Rausch Creek. There's also a huge Jeep meet/show every year I think in Bloomsburg, PA.

    Well I changed the rear diff oil and took the valve cover off to change the gasket. The fluid in the rear diff was nasty. There were some nice gouges on the inside of the diff cover, but I found no metal pieces in the oil or the bottom of the diff.

    I could have finished the valvecover, but I need to go get a torque wrench

    I've noticed even the hoopties have "stylin'" wheels down here.

    Speaking of Jeeps in Louisiana, I finally sold my Willys. The guy seems like he and his son will do her right; when I went to the notary (damned backwards-ass Louisiana is the only state I've lived in that requires a notary for title transfers) he already had her running again.

    I didnt know you had a Willys.

    Got some pics of it?

    Today I finished replacing the valve cover. Changed the thermostat too. I also fixed the 4WD. Then I went through a ditch, and did some donuts.

    Here are a few, I took a bunch more before the guy came to take her home.

    If I had the time and money she'd have been in much better condition. The last time I drove her was about four years ago, sitting around did no good whatsoever, but at least the motor was not locked up. As much fun as a newer Jeep would be for a project these old Willys flatfenders have a utilitarian charm no Jeep made since can match. Once I retire I plan to find another flatfender for a project. The plans I have for my house and property (should I keep it and retire back down here, a lot can change in the next decade) will give me a dedicated work area and plenty of space to work on almost anything.

    I love the old CJ grills. Once day I will put a CJ grill on mine if I can find the hood, fenders, and grill for cheap.

    Well, today started taking the dash off. The metal support behind it is starting to rust, so I wanted to take care of that. One of the previous owners put aftermarket gauges in it for some reason. Took out the stock (better) gauges, and put some garbage cheap gauges in it. And in the process, removed the 4WD indicator light which took a spot in the factory gauges. Then they put a piece of wood over it all to give it a wood grain look. Looked like crap. So Im tracking down the dash parts I need on eBay. Ill also put the stock gauges back in. I need to get the sending units, and the new dash parts.

    They also did a terrible job at wiring the aftermarket gauges up.


    Oh, I also forgot to mention. They butchered the stock gauge harness when hooking the aftermarket gauges up.




    Heres some cell phone pics of the carnage.

    Well I have some down time while waiting for parts.
    I dont want to put the dash back in till I fix the stop light switch and put new speakers in it. Both things are MUCH easier to do with the dash out. It almost seems like Id end up taking the dash out to put the speakers in anyway. So while Im waiting for all that, I hooked up a set of Hella 500 Driving lights I picked up.

    Shitty picture, but you get the idea.

    That's the shittiest picture I have ever seen. It should look pretty good, though. What parts are you waiting for?

    Ok, before I show you how it looks now, I wanna show you how it looked when I got it.



    Apparently someone thought it would be a good idea to glue a 1/4 inch piece of wood on the dash and cut holes to put the gauges. I started pulling it off to clean it up, then I saw the dash parts on eBay for pretty cheap. I had to open up one of the holes to get a mechanical water temp gauge out.

    This is how it looks now.





    All I have left in the interior is to get some cracks welded up, put a radio in it, then Im gonna strip the herculiner out and replace it with some bedliner called Monstaliner. Whoever put this stuff in did a terrible job. I started scraping some of it up in the back and there was shiny paint and dirt under it. They didnt clean or sand. Just put it on dirty shiny paint.

    Heres a better pic of the center of the dash. The green switch is for the Hella 500 lights I put on it, and the little red thing is a lignt that I am going to hook up to the 4WD so Ill know its engaging.



    Well I finished up the dash today. Worked on it till like 2 AM. Then I went in the field across the street to aim the Hella 500 lights I put on it. Those are some bright ass lights.

    I didnt take any pics of the dash yet, but Ill post some tomorrow. It looks great. Heres some (crappy) light pics.

    Ok, minor setback....

    I was coming home after filling up with gas, going about 50, when BOOM. I looked in my rear view and saw sparks and a large piece of metal going down the road. Well I was hoping it was my muffler, cause I was going to be changing it soon anyway, but it wasnt loud enough for that. So I turned in the next street and then went to go, and it just revved. So I put it in 4WD and go to pick up the driveshaft.

    Once I pick it up, I start going home, its like 2 miles away. And I hear a clunking noise, it gets kinda loud, so I just pull over in a parking lot, and oil is pouring out the transfercase, so I just get someone to come and pull me home.

    Well I get home, and I get under the jeep and I see this. (Ill get a better pic with something besides my phone tomm.)



    The driveshaft took the back half of my transfercase with it.

    Its all stuff I would have had to do once I lifted it, so Im just doing it earlier.

    Sounds like you had fun; I remember my days using my '78 Blazer as a daily driver when it should have been a side project. It was lifted and had a two piece driveshaft that came apart one night. After a few other mishaps I relegated it to the yard until I fixed everything. I never did and gave her away while in Iraq.

    I know someone who has an extra head they will give me, so I may rework that and swap it out. Then new exhaust too. But besides that, no plans anytime soon. Once I finish school and get settled down Id like to put a small block Ford in it and some full width Dana 60s with atleast 40 inch tires on it. But that wont be for a while.

    Just put your tired, worn out 5.0 out of the Stang in there and drop an LS1 in the GT.

    Ok, well I finally got around to fixing it. I got the old broken shaft out, and put the new one in.



    And heres the broken shaft laying on the side of the new guts.



    I THINK my chain is stretched too. Its binding when I turn it by hand. It was making a clunking noise right after it happened, and it looks like the chain binding like that would make a nice clunk when it pops off the gear. I guess when the DS gave out it caught on something, stretched the chain, then broke the slip yoke.

    You can see how its binding in this oic.
