95' YJ mild build

so the daughter is going to be driving in about a year and a half so i figured i would pick up a project and get working now since I am not home much.
she said she wanted a jeep so thats what i got
picked this rig up for cheap, needs lots of work, the PO did some crappy welding and hack job repairs.

pulled the rear diff to fix a leak and seen a lockright.
then decided to spin it around to make sure everything was good and saw a bunch of broken teeth.

Oh man... looks like you've got a lot of work ahead of you. Good luck! If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for it?

Looks like a fun project ahead. What do you plan on doing for tires to replace those baldies?

Good choice on the tires. They are great offroad and road manners aren't too bad either.
