Exactly why I hate carpet in a Jeep.

So are you just putting tubes up front and leaving the stock flares in the back? You building the tubes or ????

Okay got some more work done on the Heep of crap today found more rust and got rid of everything renegade except for the door and pinstripes.
I have a lot of holes to fill like probably close to 30. I plan on welding them and then grinding them smooth then primering. I think the welds will be a lot better and hold up better than bondo. I also found a couple different designs I am going to pull from for the tube fenders. I think I am going to be able to make them for less than 190 not to bad should start making them pretty soon.

I also started cutting up my front fenders just a little it was dark so didn't get too much into them I can't post pictures rite now because his internet protecter blocker thing won't let me go to photobucket so I should have pictures up tomorrow evening. I am helping clean up the river bottoms tomorrow for a while and then going to church, so I don't know if I will get anywork done on the jeep. The next steps will be to strip just a few more items and then start sanding everything down and building the fenders. I also am going to re-design the front bumper as it now doesn't look good at all so back to the drawing board for that one I might do a stinger or something those normally don't look too bad with tube fenders.

After removing all the fenders I simple greened the inside and got it cleaned real good so I can start seeing areas I need to tackle




And the tool of the day award goes to the grinder

The grinder usually gets the gold in my book.

Consider yourself lucky to actually have a floor. The PO of my Jeep screwed in a new floor with like 4 self tappers and called it a day. It was interesting driving around without a floor.

In retrospect, that guy was such an *** to sell me that thing. I payed $2000 for it, even went down with my Mother and a buddy to Rhode Island and everything. I had no experience working on vehicles (much less a Jeep). I also had no idea that it shouldn't have ever been on the road in the first place.

yea I got screwed bad on my jeep...I was 16 had the money and didn't do the research or know a thing of mechanics....I paid 5 grand and like I had to completely rebuild the front end, it needs a new engine, obviously all this work I am doing, the rear axle has issues, and the t-case output shaft is bent....which isn't a big deal I will just get a SYE but still I got sooooo screwed its not even funny but yea under the carpet the dude had a piece of sheet metal he had riveted in there I should have taken a picture of it

I have the same year/color renegade but I live on the East coast... Road salt is hard around here.... I had all the same rust you had plus, I replaced the seat belt mounting area on both sides due to rot.... drivers and pass floors, and 2 body mounts... Still have the spot below the jeep logo on both sides, I will tackle that this winter...

I agree I do like my renegade flairs, makes your jeep different and they aren't as bad as people say. Still crosses my mind to remove them. Very interested to see how your build comes out. Especially looking forward to seeing how you go about filling those holes

Yea the wholes are going to take some time the bigger ones I will cut out a little bigger and weld new metal in the small holes I am going to use some sort of brass back plate and then weld one side then grind smooth then remove the brass plate if that makes sense. Pictures will show later on. I will then grind the whole side smooth and bondo any waves. after this I will go back over it again and then paint. I plan on painting the jeep a dark green and trimming it all in black....but this will probably change before I paint it I can be a bit indesicive


The major turning point for me though to get rid of the flairs was the other day I went wheeling and fully flexed the jeep. Well at full flex my rear tire was less than a quarter inch from rubbing...I was like this is retarted I have 4.5 inches of lift and only 31s and I'm almost rubbing...Now given my springs are flexxing amazingly but still that shouldn't happen IMO.

Before I put my rock sliders on {I am building them soon also same with the tubes} I think I will add a 1" body lift since I am going to mount them with the bolts anyways. I should be able to run 35s when all done

Okay sorry guys its been awhile still waiting on some cash flow and deciding where I want to go with this...I decided to basicly do a complete restore. So I have decided to pull the tub off the frame and start over. I plan on por-15ing the frame and the bottom side of the jeep. Today I started pulling the dash. Hopefully tomorrow will finish the top half. I have to drop the windshield so I want to do it when I can tare it all apart and then put the windshield back up before night. I started today around 1 o clock and finished around 5 not bad for how much I got done....I got the ac pulled the heater box pulled and the wireing harness. The thing that took the longest was marking all the wires and then marking all my little zip lock baggies with bolts in them
