More shots of rust...man, what am I gettin in to???

Any advice for a rookie would be great...

I am taking this tub off and completely restoring it, with some sheet metal, por 15 and herculiner ...
that way I can get a good look at the frame as well...


Thanks for looking !!!

wow. despite all the holes in the body...the frame appears to be fairly solid. looks to me like you need some crusher corners, tube fenders in the front, new rockers/gaurds and some POR-15 once you clean and prep the frame.

other than that...nice YJ!

Look elsewhere?

Why not look for a Jeep that is more worth your time and money.You may find out that paying more for a jeep in better shape will save you money in the end and also give you a better end result.Just a thought as you clearly have a lot of work that if not done right will just come back later.Good Luck

for the amount of time it takes to do it all you could probably find a tub in much better condition and just hit it with a sander and do the POR-15 thing.

3.5 inch DC suspension lift (CJ springs so a bit taller),
1.25" shackles, 1.25ish body lift, 35" BFG ATs,

Jesus, even the windshield brackets on the inside are rusted...


I really do like that color, and the reflection from the hood makes it look even nicer
