    Just wanted to share my excitement. Started project on September 15. Replaced every single component under the hood except the steering shaft and the brake booster. ZZ4 crate motor (w/pete jackson gear drive), March pulleys, wrangler charging system and dual optimas, hi torque starter, new wires, thorley headers and dual flowmaster exhaust, JET quadrajet carb, etc. etc. etc. It was so good to hear it run again!! Now its time to button up under the hood and start on the interior with a cage, new seats and throwing out just about everything else. . . I want to thank everyone here who has answered my questions for the last four months while I slowly figured everything out.
