And shame on me for not seeing this when I was buying the jeep but the front driverside frame has a crack on the inside behind these brake lines. Ive started to clean around the crack and plan on trying to close it up, weld it closed, and weld a plate over it. Hopefully that should hold it.
And under the hood was much more of a positive than an issue. A 304 V8 that seems to run pretty well and doesnt smoke. Intial plans are to replace valve cover and intake/exhaust gaskets to seal up some leaks and get a good look at the valve train.
