Roger, do you have a 20 pound (Gas Grill) tank with propane? I will bring mine, but I think its only half full.

Yes, I have a propane tank for the grill that is close to full.

The torpedo kerosene heater heats the garage great and I'll crank that up to take the chill out of the garage, but a propane heater would probably be better for keeping it warm. The kerosene fumes can give you a headache after too many hours in it.

Thanks to everyone that came out to help today. Great time with good friends and we got a lot accomplished. The previous body lift was removed and the new one was put in, motor mount lift installed and both axles are now under the Jeep. I'll upload a picture in a little bit.

Got some time down in the barn today. Tools removed from the fuel tank and fuel tank and skid installed. Rear brakes line hook up and the transfer case when I get back down there

Sometimes I think I cause myself a lot of extra work. Just finishes with RTV and putting the tcase back together when I see a spring sitting on the work bench. The one that goes on the shift fork. Took it back apart and redid it. Then I was putting the case back into the Jeep and grabbed a wrong bolt. Has to pull the case back out and tap the thread for the correct one to fit. Tcase is in now though

I changed the title of this to make it a sort of build thread and progress update. I hadn't been down there in two weeks due to spring break and too many dogs. Spent some time this weekend and have the rear hard brake line in and UCF high clearance skid installed with everything up and out of the way. It was too dark to see if I'm going to have any tunnel clearance issues, but it all went up really well.
