Installed the Fuel Tank

We installed the correct fuel tank. The jeep had a “Bubba” tank strapped in the tub bed feeding an electric pump!

Some parts are just too much fun to put back on. The Data Plate is one of those parts!

The Tub is Back On!

Tub On
It was a long time coming but the tub was finally back on the chassis! It was a milestone for sure!

Phase III Restore

Assembly time! Using the hundreds of pictures, careful labeling, reading the manuals and most importantly consulting the internet, YouTube, and knowledgeable friends and vendors we put each component back together an on the Jeep. It was very gratifying to see each part back in place. Some parts had not been on the Jeep since it was on active duty!
