I told her no, it won't need constant maintenance but I've got a long way to go before I am done working on it and can let it ride for a while. After all this, I'll need to go through the brakes and change the tranny, transfer case and front & rear diff fluids and probably replace all of the rubber bits on the suspension and I looked at the front brake pads and they've got a lot of meat on them but I'll need to bleed new fluid through it and same for the power steering and I haven't even pulled the rear wheels off yet to look closer at all of that so who knows? Plus god help me if I can find another Raider in a junkyard nearby because the upholstery on these seats could be freshened up or just find a good set to replace them entirely? Oh honey I'll be working on this thing for a while, but it won't need constant maintenance.

Belt, fan and all removed parts have been put back. No leaks. Then we decided to tackle the rear shock replacement, until we realize that Rockauto sent me two different shocks, one with a post/clevis configuration.

Finally got the correct rear shock, pulled the old ones out and replaced them, and went over to the tax office and got the tags squared away. Other than a grumble from the PS pump (it’s low on fluid, no biggie) this thing is at least ready to drive for a while.

What is the easiest way to clean out the valence between the hood and windshield? This part is removable on my wife's TJ, but here its part of the body.

Pull the access panel on the passenger side and the wiper motor on the driver's side and vacuum out from either end.
