I thought I'd break down the teardown into sections.  First off I needed a donor chassis to set the Tour Jeep body parts on to.  Then the task is to get the bed and cab off the monster chassis.  After that I'll have to bring all the parts back up to specs, reassemble them, and hope it all come together in time for my trip to the San Juan Mountains this summer.  Follow along and share in my pain and learning experience in bringing this old gal back to its infamous glory days as a Mountain explorer and guide service vehicle.
