Fairly uneventful extraction yesterday with the FC...
I might be getting wiser as I age, and decided hiring a wrecker wouldn't be the worst idea instead of struggling with jacks and my trailer for hours..
Ive pulled too many Jeeps from fields and barns to have learned my lesson the hard way..

was a very tight squeeze in an even tighter driveway... but the Jeep drove in, so it was for certain coming out..
dropped off right in the recently cleaned "shop bay" of my garage..

Got it running yesterday.....
Swapped out the old distrib for a new electronic one, new plugs and wires.  Took a few tries with timing and clearing the fuel lines...
Clutch and transmission function well, amazing how bad old fuel smells..
Brakes need some attention next, currently no pedal.
Interior is great and original.. no plans to butcher this...
