    Another thing. Check out some good IPF head light lenses. I had some like what looks like you have, and didn't last that long (started clouding up).
    I have them in my '95 2500, '96 cherokee 2dr, and son's 01 cherokee. They're a GREAT lens that kicks up the light in the upper right for street signs
    and you can put in whatever H4 bulb you want. (I have 55/100w) Also get a light harness upgrade with ceramic plugs. WELL worth it, I think I paid around 95.00, bulbs, lenses, and 25.00 for the harness.

    These are a bit more:

    I don't trust these LED's that are "supposed" to last for 20yrs..
    And you can't adjust the beam all that well either. More of a flood light than anything.

    Here's a harness: pretty much gets load right from battery.

    Oh, are you in need of 'stock' bumbers/ends or are you making up some?
    I think I have some grills/marker lights too.

    On the re-drilling the drums: They're little tiny, 'thin' ones. And in the past, peeps had issues with them cracking after drilling and that's just 'street' driving.. Even with a chamfer.
    If you can, look for 2g (80-83) wagon rear drums. I think they would just swap over from the backing plate and were a little bigger (and 4/100) Just had that funky adjuster that seized up.
    I have some from a 77 wagon, but they're 4/120mm

    Well the meantime I am probably going to use the 4x120 stuff I have 50mm adaptors to 4x114 so that gives me some cool wheel tire combos, I bought new brakes for the front and rear and new stock control arms for the front because the bushings are worn, but a brake upgrade will be needed eventually, I'm also assuming I'm just going to have axles made for it I was told one side will work fine but one is too short
