NEW (well, to me) Hood installed...

So I got the hood from the junkyard donor! Looks good and matches perfect, except the hinges are the original ones i had that got bent. I straightened them out at the shop today and they are as good as they will get. Also had to replace passenger side motor mount. The one that was there was sheared into 2. Yeah... funny times... what a ***** it was!

Here is where you will see the alignment from the messed up hinges. I don't care. I got a hood and it looks ok unless you are RIGHT on it!

Well, after yesterday's trip to the junkyard.... *evil grin* I am converting her! I can get a Dana HP 30 with 4.10's, and the entire steering setup from a Jeep Cherokee for 250 bucks! Yes Sir... that is the next purchase! Then I will start to procure a transfer case, and all. The lift kit has changed too. Now that I am getting the front SAS done, I am going with a Rubicon Express XJ (Jeep Cherokee) 5.5 inch Extreme Duty Long Arm kit, and will roll Mickey T's Baja MTZ 33x12.50's. That is a sum up. I have a complete parts list in this thread - The Thread although, that needs to be updated to include the 4x4 SAS swap.
