Wel I'm back into a Jeep ladies and germs! Picked up an 87 XJ over the weekend with 80k miles. It's got the HPD30 and D44 rear with 3.73 gears and np242 tcase and the 4.0. First things first is I gotta patch a couple holes in the floor pans and fix the drivers seat bracket then I can focus on modding it more. Already has a 2" lift and 31s.

You're telling me! Before the kid I bought it off had it an older lady had it from brand new! The kid owned it for 2 months wheeled it once got water inside through the holes in the floorboards and had to rip out the carpet. All I have to do is patch those holes up and it'll be ready to rock and roll

Got some work done on the XJ over the weekend. Had a ridiculously loud ear piercing squeal which was coming from darn near all the pulleys. Replaced the idler, deleted the mechanical fan since that pulley bearing is non serviceable, replaced the ac compressor bearing, and the alternator with a new 100A one. So since I deleted the mech fan I got a shorter 84" belt to bypass it.
And since it was a rainy day I popped up a tent over the Jeep to keep me dry

Replaced the harmonic balancer that was digging into my timing cover and front crank seal since I was in there and it was leaking. Also wire wheeled out all the rust and shop vacced the dirt and debris out.

I like the weather tent.
Wish I could use something like that. Around here we get gale force+ winds on a regular basis, and it would inevitably become a wing/parachute for the concrete slabs and carry them off

I had a 3/4 ton truck parked in some grass facing west, and a heavy tarp over the bed expecting rain, but the wind kicked up 80+mph that night, and the next morning found that the wind had gotten under the tarp enough that it swung the truck around facing SSW, the direction the wind was coming from. Stuff still got wet, but I learned why my folks always parked their rigs facing SW. This was waaay back when I went to High School, but the weather hasn't changed much.

That's absolutely insane your houses must be rock solid to withstand winds like that

Most homes are somewhat partially protected by Forestry, Landscaping, and building Low slope + little to no eaves to the south. We have Juniper, Black Locust, Western Red Cedar, several apple, pear, and plum trees, plus black berries and wild roses helping to break up the wind south of the house. The barns and sheds have a few blackberries but that's it. They are pretty massively overbuilt. Even so, the main barn is well over 100 years old, and could fall at any time. The skirt barns built around it later are already falling. Yeah there are reasons why it's being left rather than repaired. Kind of heartbreaking to watch them go though.

Must be beautiful scenery around there. Such a shame about the barns though I always hate to see them go

Ripped out the rest of the interior in preparation for bedlining. Vacuumed out all of the dirt from last wheeling trip. Next step is to fix the rest of the holes and wire wheel the loose rust off then a final vacuum then MEK wipe down and itll be ready for bedlining

I've been very busy the past couple weeks. Fixed the rest of the holes in the floor, sanded everything down and applied chassis saver. Next step will be monstalining.

Replaced both axle seals, wheel bearings, and brake shoes since the drivers seal blew out on the first wheeling trip and coated the drum and almost nonexistent friction material on the shoe so figured it was about time to fix em. The passenger side didn't catastrophically fail like the drivers side but it still was seeping pretty decently so I did that side as well.

In the middle of doing the monstaliner install right now and couldnt be happier with how it's turning out. A few things to keep in mind for people who want to try it on their rig.
1. Lay it on thick keep the roller full at all times as I didnt use enough on the first coat and now i have to do a third since I have leftovers. (Not that im complaining since now I can get the high traffic areas extra thick)
2. VENTILATION. I'm serious this stuff is STRONG. Im doing it outside with all the doors open and I'm still seeing unicorns
3. Buy a third roller. You'll need it.
4. PREP PREP AND THEN PREP SOME MORE. I spent at least 3 weeks prepping it a little bit at a time after work. (The rain on all the days I had free really made the process way longer than it couldve been) Sand and clean everything and I strongly suggest chassis saver as a base coat that stuff is no joke. It seals very well and prevents rust. Make sure you scuff it and acetone wipe everything.

Finished putting the interior back in the jeep over the weekend for the first time in a mo th it's driveable. That's if it would start of course! Go to start it up to give it a drive around the neighborhood and lo and behold the starter is shot. Ah well they dont call it a project for nothing
