The answer is simple and one you will decide all by yourself.

Just ask yourself this question:

Do I like to lay on my back, on the floor , under the jeep, lifting heavy drive train parts into position in the dark?

If the answer is yes then install the tub first on the chassis!

Just when you think things are going to come togather to work on the jeep the universe throws a curve ball. On Nov 2 I fell 20 feet at work. I just got home from the hospital today and it is looking like i will be laid up for the next 6 months. So I guess the jeep has to wait some more


I had to stop for some 4 months after an accident with the wind and a pile of brush. Long time ago...



I got at least one TM on proper procedure of handing fuel, sent by a friend.

Here is hoping your recovery proceeds rapidly.

As Wes stated, install everything you can before installing the body...
