ID:	1889 I have had multiple threads (All but one was abandoned unfinished) on that other website, and I've been in a bit of a funk these past few years so I'm starting this thread as motivation.

    I started with this 1991 YJ that I traded an Atlas for...

    The original plan was leafs rear, long arms front, tons, NP435, D300, 4.2 Straight 6,...

    Currently I have a healthy GT-40p Ford 302 with some port and bowl work, a mild cam, and fuel injection. That's delivering power to a Ranger Overdrive in front of the aforementioned NP435, and (Currently) a flipped D300.

    I am still running tons (narrowed 90ish HP60 front, and narrowed LP E350 D60 rear. Both 35 spline, 4.88's Spool Front, Spartan Rear rolling on H2s and 35" Treps.

    14" fox 2.0's / 4 link rear/ 3link front, retained the steering box but the front of the frame is custom. PSC box, pump, assist cylinder.

    Drew up some motor mount brackets in CAD, and cut them out for mock up.

        So after many years... the engine is installed... the front frame is modified, and I'm brain fucking the transmission crossmember/ how to back half the chassis.

          Sorry, this stuff is horribly out of order, but I just want to get the highlights here and move forward...

          I had this idea for a skidplate/ bumper/ front frame system.

              Then it basically sat because I was busy... from roughly July of 2017 until September of 2019, when I got a bug up my ass and decided to work on it a bit.

              The track bar needed to occupy the same space as some of the steering linkage/ axle, so... I cut and sectioned a ruffstuff link bracket, and frenched it into the frame rail.

                In November of 2019 I decided I couldn't wait anymore, and tore into the long needed revision to my garage/ shed/ workspace.
                The previous owner had built the shed with a 1/12 pitch, and frankly I'm surprised it held up as long as it did.
                Long story short, I tore that off, installed a header to support the steeper roof rafters, and opened up the shed/ garage wall to allow better work flow.
                The garage is still small, and cramped, and I have way too much shit, but it's something to keep the rain off the mice.
                It is also a glorious mishmash of repurposed shit that I have acquired... like the used garage door from my neighbor...

                The best part (for me) has been the improved lighting/ storage/ room to move.
                The glass from the neighbor's garage door is now a window...

                And the new larger opening that is vastly better than the 32" wide man door that was there before.
