1981 CJ7 Restoration - 2018.10.06

Got sidetracked as usual, but after a couple weeks, I got the front axle off. This time I followed the advice of a good friend who suggested just cutting off the U-bolts with my angle grinder. Smart man - the old bolts have no use and it saved me at least 30-60 minutes of wrestling with 8 seriously stuck and rusted nuts that needed to be turned many times to clear the end of the U-bolts.

Thanks Mark!

Front axle off - Dana 30.

So now I'm quite literally "frame-off." Running out of space in the garage, though!

Frame off, axles staged, body off, transmission and transfer case out.
