Back in Action Build

Well its been about a year since I have been in the Jeep world. Last summer I rolled my first Jeep on July 4th. I put a lot of time and money into it, and it has sat ever since(ill post some pics). I decided I wanted a truck so I went and bought this...
1997 Ford f350 powerstroke

I like it but I've been itching to get back in a wrangler. Yesterday I brought home a 1987 YJ I6 5spd with a bad carb.

And so it begins.

That would be cool. I put a truetrac in the rear and warn premiums up front. I like having a tow rig though

It doesn't look that bad but it needs a new tub, role bar, and windshield frame. I was going to just replace all that stuff but the frame has been patched a bunch of times and I figured I would just start fresh.

It's amazing that I got away from the accident without a scratch. I rolled it coming around a corner. It landed on its tires and drove me home...

Well I guess I should lay out the plans for the jeep:

1- swap the 4.0 from my other jeep to the 87 along with all the dash a wiring required.

2- Swap the ba/10 with a ax15 out of a xj my brother has.

3- Finish repairing the np241or I have out of a rubi and install it.

4- Finish building the 8.8 I was going to put in my other one. Aussie and 4.88:1

5- SOA in the rear and maybe a rear stretch. 4 inch RE springs I have for the front.

6- Fix the rust I am running into with the 87.

7- Transfer all the upgrades I have from the hold one.

So far I've started ripping apart the dash in the 87 and I ran into some rust. I also took a hammer to the frame and found a weak spot... Typical YJ rust spot at rear shackle

Made more progress on the jeep. Tore off the old dash and the complete wire harness. The windshield frame busted off... Fudge

Glad you're ok after the roll. Good luck on the new build, looking good so far. Great list of plans, going to be a solid rig.

I haven't done much with the jeep this week. I just pulled the rear driveshaft, grill, and tcase panel. Slowly chipping at it getting ready to pull the motor.

Great progress, dash is notorious for rust due to rubber seal between cowl and tub. Post up some pics!

My first time pulling the drivetrain out of a vehicle went pretty well. Empty Jeep!
