Wow!! You've made quite a lot of progress on the build. I commend you on your enthusiasm (I could use some) and gumption to move forward.
Keep up the good work. Everything looks well thought out.

Thanks for any encouragement, sometimes I think it's moving too slow. :shock:

Also barely pictured was the new/rebuilt Jeep Grand Cherokee power steering box that, just like others, hits the truck power steering pump pulley so a Dorman 300-201 is on order, I had already picked up the Jeep steering shaft on an earlier salvage yard run to eliminate the worn out rag joint.

If I can just get the engine position set I can get the body pulled back off and start on the floor pan degreasing plus replacement. Oh and build some sort of home made rotisserie to undercoat and seam seal it all.
