So just a little background. Bought the jeep about 3 years ago, it was in pretty good shape. I just did enough to keep it running at the time. Added a soft top a 4" RE lift and put hurcaliner on the floor. I drove it for about a year as a daily driver and now have a truck so its time to restore it. Last July it wouldnt pass smog. Pulled the head and found burnt valves, bad valve guides and seals, and a blown head gasket. I pulled the engine to rebuild it and one thing led to another and next i knew, i was taking the body off
. I almost have it back together completely so i figured it was time to start a thread. Enjoy.
I cant find my pics from when i first got it. ill try to add them in the next couple days if i can.
sorry for some of the crappy pictures, i dont have anything except my phone in the shop with me.
the distruction begins. the inside was a mess. the PO really screwed up the wiring.
the battery had leaked acid everywhere causing rust throughout the engine compartment and frame
the frame after being stripped down prepped and painted.
The newly rebuilt 4.0l
most of the drivetrain back together.
