First Jeep Build

Just picked this gal up today. 1993 YJ 6 cyl 5speed with 33" goodyear wrangler mtr tires and supposedly a 4" suspension lift. Has a 1" transfer drop kit installed. Has some rust to take care of but nothing a little hack and weld couldn't fix.
It's gonna be tough to find time to work on it with school and all but I'll find time to get home. Still haven't figured out a name yet.
I plan to fix the floor and the tiny hole in the frame within the next week or so here.
But here she is for now

Here's a list of things I would like to do depending on funds:
New front bumper
Tire carrier
New seats
New center console
Fender flares

There's more but those are things I can see happening in the near future.

So I ordered my floor pan for the drivers side today from quadratec and it is on back order for at least a week. On the other hand, I did pick up some herculiner today for painting the inside of the tub. Now its just a waiting game til the order comes in
