Hey Guys, the Jeep has finally forced me to get some things done to it.

Ive owned the jeep for 12months, i bought it cheap in need of rego, radiator, tyres and some other bits and pieces.

Long story short, i got it on the road with a new metal radiator and bought a 2nd hand lift & snorkel around 6 months ago and never got around to fitting it.
Last week the CPS died and left me stranded on sparks rd.

Got it home and started pulling it apart while i wait for the CPS to arrive.

Here are some pics

Radiator

ive also put a tranny cooler on it.........

PS. one day it may be as cool as jeepers

removed the side steps and lower lip from the front bar.

now got some problem, it may just be the exhaust manifold causing it but its running rough as.
i did notice im missing one bolt on the back of the manifold.
