    Thank you! I installed another brake line yesterday: that little squiggly one to the wheel cylinder. Tomorrow morning, the surgery "party" starts. I'll order my leaf springs while I'm out of service....

    That's a great point. Thank you. Yes at least I did know the "reason for holes" like the huge-*** one on the side for the CB antenna! That will be one of them that I'll have filled in eventually...

    I wholeheartedly agree!! What I thought was good back in the late 70's has changed a little.
    Working on this jeep is somewhat surreal. It sat so long in the garage that it became sort of a "ghost"...

    Thanks everyone!

    So, 41 years ago, I had to copy my friends and get this Rancho leaf spring set. Originally there were 4 leaves which was WAY too stuff. I removed one spring years ago and the darn thing is still too...
