Thank you very much Rusty for everything and JeepForum.com for being such a great place. No text book could have taught me the knowledge I have learned from this site. Thanks again.

When i was about 9 my dad did a frame off with his 89 wrangler. I helped a little with the wet sanding and little nuts and bolts. Ever since then I live Jeep and have always wanted a Jeep, preferably the square headlights. I got the Yj when i was 15 and just wanted to build a nice daily driver. But as i started gathering parts i thought i might as well throw a lift on her. It didnt stop there though. Ive built this with about 75% of my money on a high school budget

Specs: 1993 Canadian Jeep wrangler, 5spd, 4 cylinder.
Tj flares, homemade rockers, Tj warrior products corner guards, Extreme Custom Fab tube fenders, homemade boomerang 5/8s shackle, Crown Auto 4 inch blue brake lines, RC 2.5 lift, 31x10.50 Cooper Discovory SST, LED tail lights, Sanden OBA, 4.0L TB swap, WARN XD9000, JKS 1 mml, Optima yellow top battery, Tj fog lights

Over the summer i would like to get an 8.8 with ected, Waggy springs in the rear SUA, dana 30 hp out of a cherokee and build a coil setup in the front. Ive even be tossing around the idea of a 4.0L swap with my dad. But i have a feeling it will be a very expensive summer

What it looked like when i bought it



Other 93 frame and tub i used to get ride of the rust



Frame sand blasted



Rolling chassis



Paint Deep Water Blue, interior being put together



Almost there



Flex shot



Did a little wheeling





Just took this picture of it in the snow with my dads Jeep



Thanks for every one who has helped me along the way.
