    Thanks Richie, I appreciate the compliment! My jeep has it's share of problems, your intermediate came from the factory with many of the upgrades I've been doing.
    I will keep your offer on the spreader in mind. Right now I want to make sure my rear axle is going to work right, then I may be doing some work on the front axle early next year.

    Had the fuel tank out of my '56 and I added a valve to the drain, replacing the pipe plug.

    No more need to get soaked in gas each time I want to drain some water or sediment. Convenient to tap some gasoline from if I ever need to. (It is well shielded from trail obstacles.)

    Been long overdue. Made a 2g carb spacer to fit under the oil bath. Solid piece of 3” round 6061. Works well and keeps the choke cable from rubbing on the air cleaner.

    Wish I could carve stuff out of aluminum. Nice work.

    I added an LED strip to the under side of my roll bar for an interior light. Nice and bright in there now.

    I added a blackout driving light to Ted. Absolutely love it for night time trail driving. Doesn't affect night vision and I can see much deeper in the woods than with the headlights. I still have to wire up the marker lights.

    The light was surplus from eBay and the bracket came from Walcks.

    Influencing the granddaughter. She loves the Jeep and loves to go offroading. We changed out the water pump.

    OX locker is in, the full float conversion is done. Just need to bleed the brakes, fill the differential with lube. Then sweat out the test drive.

    Made this today... going to add some pockets around the tool roll, but I like where this one is heading.

    My 1 year old china fuel pump wasnt holding prime on the 2a so I dove in to fix it. I decided it could be sucking air because the line was so old i think it was original. I changed it out for a hard line and saw a valve in the pump was bad. I put the old top on the new bottom because just the diaphram was leaking. It was pumping now but still not pulling from the tank. After all day messing with it I finally figured out the new line was clogged! must have gotten crud in it when i fished it through the frame. Also adjusted the acc pump and metering valve and its running better
