OK, I never got a chance to mention some of the difficulties I had...but...it took about 2.5hrs total to completely remove the main eye bushings out of the darn springs.  They appeared to be the factory molded rubber bushings that are molded right into the ID/OD metal sleeves.  That was a 'ton-o-fun'.  The master bushing set had already arrived which includes:

Transmisison mount bushings, swaybar bushings, swaybar endlink bushings, leaf spring bushings, shackle hanger bushings, full set of body mounts and some others that I am sure I have forgotten about...
 
I had been wanting to get the chassis in a rolling state but couldn't due to having to cut the shackles apart during disassembly.  I was short a full set of shackles.  So I prepped the engine to be pulled.  Just need a hand to get it pulled but would be best to wait for the chassis to be in a rolling state so I can pull and set right between the frame rails of the new frame.
 

 

 
There was more time so I pulled the interior apart in preparation for the floor pans.  They will get done once the drivetrain is out of the way...which, again, is waiting on the shackles.

Notice the crappy patches put in by the PO?

Some more goodies arrived...most were body-related. *grumble*  I did also get the brake lines\\fittings in.

They were had after pulling up the carpet for a quick look-sie.
 
The rear bed and all 4 front pans are going to be replaced.  I will have to re-enforce the rockers a bit prior to installing the new pans, though.

The axles were pulled, cleaned and left to dry.  Soon after they were painted with their 1st coat of Eastwood's Extreme Chassis Black via the brush on method.







After Final Coat of Paint...Front\\Rear, respectfully:

Replacement Frame - provided by 'customer':
He purchased a patched up Scrambler frame - I would consider it in OK shape.  It is solid and all but some of the patches are a tad sloppy.  Overall, the frame is OK, though.

See?  You don't need no stinkin Jeep forum.  You've got here what I call the Best & the Brightest.



 
I posted this Q on AMCForum.com and here...both are GREAT....
 
How are your V8s running?  I officially get 20MPG w/ my truck by the way...I am leaning towards the Summit K8600 because between the price and everyone raves about it over the Edelbrock cam...
 
This isn't going to happen until the end of summer most likely because I want to convert over to FI while I am there which the Summit cam will work well with due to it's specs. :)
 
GM TBI, have the harness made, just got the correct computer...just need the fuel pump and adapter plate - I plan on letting the ECU control spark as well...

And the end of the story....
 
The truck is back together and the trans is as good as new, if not better.
 
It does still have a fresh rebuild on it, after all but it pulls straigt thru all 3 gears and the noise is in fact gone...thank goodness.

would it be possible to hone out the housing to use the bearing that matched the ID but maybe had a bigger OD?

 
None has a larger O.D.  The best I was able to find has a smaller I.D. but the problem is you can't machine bearings...no big deal.  A&A is shipping out either today or tomorrow and I am going to get the Used one from Fatsco as a backup.
 
Problem solved.

A&A has em - and only because they were purchased some time in the late 90s he figures...why the hell is the bearing not available without an ETA?  That is ridiculous...if the bearing goes what are people supposed to do replace the WHOLE TRANNY or something?

The bearing fits a very wide selection of vehicles ie 84-02 Jeep Cherokees...geez...
