My computer is at least 10 years old and the thread loads fast for me. I have fast internet though. I don't see any harm in starting Part 2 and putting a link to Part 1 in the first post.

And I thought I was the only one who couldn't get their mirrors to fold in... Like you said I thought I was going to break it off the door before it would fold but ever since I nailed it on a fence post it folds in with ease.,

Also why do you want new back windows and seals? Take them out tint them and put them back in, they are only a force fit. or your could just try tinting with it in..

oversight on my part. while doing the floors, all the grinding makes them feel rough, like maybe bits of metal stuck to the glass or something, i dont think tint would look remotelt good over it.

Remember I said I emailed rough country?

Yeah 24 business hours til you get a response they claim.
Just like thier product, thier service is a pile of crap. Still no response. 8 days later.

Get it together Rough Country.

Hey, just wanted to let you know that looking at your thread got me started on mine. My floors were almost all gone, but at least the front floor pans had been replaced by 40+ license plates and body filler. I have replaced the rear floor pans, and getting ready to cut out all the license plates and repair that part. Definitely enjoyed the thread. Thanks

Thanks! that's why I made it I learned a lot doing this, but nothing compared to projects I've done since. Nothing as extensive, but more technical. I'll be updating this thread sometime this summer and fall with rockers being replaced by the same kind of stock I used on the bumpers

Few other things too, but its mostly done, aside from it needing to be painted badly, and the engine needing to come out and be painted / cleaned up.

I just skimmed through this entire thread and have to say I like what you did with the floors I picked up a 94 Xj with 180k for 600 bucks to drive while my Wj is under construction. I knew it needed rockers and the front floors weren't in good shape but I must say I was surprised when I pulled up the carpet in the Xj, it's not as bad as yours but still pretty bad and I will absolutely be replacing/welding in all new panels because of this thread thanks man for all the good work to model mine after!

How have you been? Yeah lol it needs monstaliner something fierce. Its almost green and tan again lol. I've been tryin to park the thing for a year so I can do some work too it. Life just keeps kickin m when I'm down lol.

It was running a little rough, not horrible. I had a cap, rotor, plugs, wires sitting for the last year. I'm starting to think the plugs and wires that were on it were original, there was no resistor left when I pulled the plugs lol.

Lol it looks good in the last pictures, If I took pictures now, omg. Its green and tan again lol.

Upstate is okay, nothing really fun. We didn't really get any of that flooding or anything. Summer has been good, actually the weather this summer was acceptable. Been killing myself getting into shape. I went from long term relationship to long term relationship over the last 6 + years, so gained a little of that pretend you are happy weight lol.

Hows business, and home life?
