earned more of its keep last night,

fun fact, with two engine hoists each hooked to driver and passenger front door latches on center pillars of a 4 door XJ, it balances pretty good to pick up 4' and back the 49 under!  duals hit the lift arms the jeep grill was only 2' from the headake rack 


jeep was on blocks no axles or motor, picked it up for free.
98 4dr missing axles and motor.  good trans/case/interior/title.  lots of treasures buried in it!
