    Today was floor fab day. The drivers side floor was cut out by PO so I just fabricated a new one. Not worried about period correct. Getting raptor liner and a rubber mat when done. Having done my share of grinding on my back on the CJ I opted for panel adhesive this time. After 24 hrs I'll remove the screws and work some magic with some seam filler

    Looks pretty solid, good rig to invest your time in.

    Check the frame rails between the rear of the cab and the spring shackle - they often crack there.

    Obviously a bad leaker. Cleaned it up, changed all the seals and gaskets. All the gears where in perfect condition
