my little build.....

Heres my 95 that ive been working on. Between work, restoring my vettes, building a new home, newlywed, and a baby on the way.....(all in that order incase you wondered...lol) Heres my little "project"

Since purchase a year or so ago I have....

Bedlined the whole vehicle...inside and OUT.....

installed the net contraption on the back

bikini top

built my own rocker guards...

installed an aussie in the front.

have an 8.8 for the back with arb locker, but havent go around to it yet....soon though

installed front and rear winches

modified both bumpers for use with the winches

changed the wheels.....getting ready to install some 35 or 36 super swamper boggers.

and the list goes on and on.....things I want to do and possibly will one day

full width axles....SOA or a 4 inch lift. stretch the wheel base. Atlas transfer case....full roll cage....OBA....350/700r4 conversion (this one may be soon then i think)

It looks really great! I have never seen the net before. Who makes that?

The color combo of tan & black is exactly the color scheme I'd like to use one day, it really goes well together.

Congratulations on the nuptials & the baby on the way!

Keep up the good work!

Max

The dual winch setup you have going on is sick, and those rockers are some of the nicer homemade ones I have seen on here.
Where did you get the net setup from? Do you know if they make one for the earlier models with the sport style bar?

Thanks...the next piece of fab work is gonna be trying to build me a rear tire carrier rack.

As far as the color...it was originally maroon. If I was to do another, I believe ide go with a olive green and black combo. People walk next to it they notice the bedliner...stop, and have to feel it.

Hah, my dad use to say "If I get there I know I can go backwards but I don't know if I will keep wanting to go forward."

since the seats were gray, and badly stained.....I think the PO tried to "glue" the seat covers in place...I ordered new smittybilt replacement seats in black denim and they should be here tomorrow.

Also found me a low mileage 4cyl axle 4.10 for $200 to go with my 8.8 4.10 swap. Im hoping the 4cyl axle will be a direct bolt in. Im told going from 3.07 to 4.10 will be like getting a whole new Jeep. Should get it tomorrow also.

The leaf springs on here now are bad worn...one is almost inverted. Im thinking of adding a lift kit while they are out, but really rather just put back in factory springs since im planning a SOA and go ahead and do the SOA while they are out.....

Suggestions on finding replacement springs?.....They ones Ive found, I could just buy a lift kit for the same $$ and get more with it.

Its not the prettiest, but its will clean up. The D30 4.10 axle came, and time to start cleaning it up. Would be alot easier and faster to get it done if it wasnt for work
