    I think it could hit the trail today. But this is the short list for the next big trip

    Want:
    Locker for the front
    Gears
    4.0 swap or FI of some sort

    Need:
    Seats that are a little taller/ not almost 40 years old
    Fix the dash so it shows my speed and lights up.
    Steering- needs new everything
    Headlights
    Wire up the light bar
    Wire up the electric FP and add a switch to the dash to run it

    Nothing to crazy

    Awesome, all very doable before EJS. After it cools down (in December lol) I want to do some trails around here for shake down runs.. I would REALLY like to run Red Creek again with the CJ.

    Been driving the Cherokee to work for the last week. Other than steering is sloppy and it has no AC, its been good. It does fine keeping up with traffic and nothing is smoking or rubbing as far as I can tell. It has started to get a little bit of a leak but nothing bad.
    It 100% needs some new seats. Those seats are hot and all broke down.

    Replaced the headlights this weekend. I didn't go with the LED/HID. Just new lights and new plug ends. It seems to have helped. It also helped fixing the lazy eye my jeep had. Found that the jeep had been hit at some point. Bondo and broken mounts... No big deal but there is only one adjustment bolt for the light.

    Spent some time under the jeep looking for leaks. I have one that just showed up at the oil pan. I cleaned everything and made sure it was tight. Ill check it again after putting some miles on it. Tans is a little wet as well but not enough to make me do anything about it.

    Been driving the jeep and its still running strong. It is pushing a little oil out the cover over 60mph. Other than that It needs new steering.
