Cool, my friend picked up this Jeep and did a bunch of work to it, but still had a ways to go before it could be called "done". Glad to see it went to a good home! I helped my friend work on the front end, we did all 4 ball joints and one of the front wheel bearings (driver's side i think). There was more to do, but alas, as projects go, there was more to do.


Cliff.
