I love the South
I love the South
I love my 25yr old rust free Jeep
I'll never live in the great white north again!


Seriously,
OP I'll have to hand it to you, it takes a lot of guts to take on a project like that.
That vehicle would be considered scrap in many places down here.

Don't take this the wrong way but would it not be cheaper and stronger to buy a YJ from out of state and have it shipped. You can buy a YJ from the west coast or other Non-Salt sunny states w/o all that work, effort, and money.

But it looks like you like a challenge. Good luck and I can't wait to see your next set of photos so we can all keep tabs on your progress.

oh yea YJ's are a blast.

I can quit drinking anytime I want, but hey I'm no quitter :)

How bad is the frame? Take a look where the springs attach and the sterring box. My body rust is not as far along as yours but my frame need considerable repairs. I pulled the roll bar the other day to swap back to a sport bar and now I have to do some rust repair work in that area.
Though, I really enjoy working on it, at the end of the day its still mine.

DO NOT throw her out. All rust can be overcome. Get a welder if you don't have one. I got the Hobart 140 from Northern Tool and invested in an AR CO2 bottle from Craigslist from a shop going out of business. Get yourself some POR-15 too, and take this jeep completely apart..label everything. Put her back together and enjoy.

You have the right idea. If you need, my build is a 91 and I did the same thing. Ask if you need anything.

Axles and bolts and springs....Oh My!

You are right on the effort. And I understand, but trust me....the finished product will make you smile. Mine was therepy from my deployment. Took me some days all day to get the nerve to get out of bed and turn one bolt or take one hose off, or weld one crack. Day after day, the effort of anywhere from 15 minutes of work to a full day's added up..and today she is my baby.

However....your right and I know what you meant. Having lived in MA, VT, and CO....I feel your pain on the salt.

Axles and bolts and springs....Oh My!
