nates93yj BUILD
 
ok so i wake up christmas day to a jeep sitting out side of my house :drool: wishing i could have it. It just so happens i looked at the same jeep 3 weeks earlyer. i thought some thing was up but wasnt sure, so i started opening up presents and i found a match box jeep with a jeep key straped to it. :2thumbsup::2thumbsup: So i got it december 26th. It is a canadian jeep that some guy brought down from canada. My parents bought it from a dealership for $1500, they did some work to it to like new fuel sending unit, new ebrake assembly, and new cat. my parent took 1100 out of my savings with out me knowing.:thumbdown: It is a 1993 wrangler s 5 speed 2.5 liters with 230680km (which i think is like 143000 miles). Its rusty but runs like a champ and the vaccum 4x4 works like a charm.:thumbsup:

Plans:
rc 2.5 lift later when i get some money
boomerang shackles
4.o throttle body
5.0 III injectors
crown engine tune up kit
homemade bumpers
summit 2.5 cat back
tj flares
31s but not for a while because someone is giving me 31 superswampers with decent tread and he'll probably balance them too for free:2thumbsup:

so now im building it comptley frame off and im getting a new frame,tub,windsheil frame, half doors for $500 with very little rust.painting it blue (its on the new 09 wranglers just cant think of the name

So im 15 and trying to build a dd jeep and very capable jeep cheap but spending money when it is needed

so i just got all new ss parts i wanted. man that stuff is expensive.

i thinks its a shackle reversal

for the trouble it is, i would just repair the tub. its a lot cheaper, your probably gonna spend 30$ on the rust repair product of your choice ( i go eastwood), maybe 40$ on sheet metal, and i forget what body filler runs these days. Its a lot easier then taking everything off the old tub, and saves you a few months

Thats what I was thinking at first.

RandysYJ 02-11-2009 07:09 PM

Yep, definitely scrap the frame and body. Shouldn't be too hard to find donors. I bought up 5 parts wranglers in less than a week to put mine together (working on number 2). Body comes right off after you unbolt it and get the firewall untangled. Get a cherry picker and pull the motor, begin rebuilding.

Just make sure you do it right and protect your new stuff. Sand off any rust spots and spray paint away. Or better yet herculine the frame, underside and inside of tub. You won't regret that. I had a lot of fun doing mine. Gets frustrating when those body bolts wont come off but other than that it was an enjoyable experience.

It also helps when your dad is a jeeper too.

Good luck.

that shackle reversal provides so much more flex and ride comfort, it looks ugly because the gap was for stock stainless bumper was there then we got the winch so the bumper wont fit back on.

yes sure its cheaper but the guy wants 300 for the frame, 150 for the tub(roll bar dash steering colume seats windsheild frame all included with tub), and 400 for the half doors so if you add that up its 850 but if i buy the whole thing its 500 it just a nobrainer and i really want the half doors because somebody else is giving me a free soft top
ive had a bad experiance with body filler(put it on to thick).i m not saying its bad just apply like 1/8 inch

SteveJcoYJ 02-11-2009 07:57 PM

fair enough, if you have the knowledge and money to do it, then go balls deep

phelan 02-11-2009 07:58 PM

gotta say for a 15 year old, you seem to know your stuff man, im impressed... good luck with the build, keep us all updated

how many gallons do you think i would need to do the frame, skid plates, tub inside and bottom. i was thinking 2 for sure.
if any one is looking for cheap herc try you home town menards, they had it for $76 compared to the cheapest place i found on the internet $90

aaronc88 02-12-2009 12:03 AM

Menards is only in the upper mid west but yeah cheapest when its on sale. Yeah a min of 2 gallons if you're going to do all of that. You sure you want to herc the frame?
I dunno the mud just seems to like to stick to the hurc. The Rust-oleum hammer paint is pretty amazing stuff.
Its up to you though I'm sure it will turn out nice whatever you do. Just take your time and get it done right the first time.

RandysYJ 02-12-2009 06:34 AM

Definitely right about the mud sticking to the herc. But it stays put better than most anything else. I was just suggesting that for max durability. I did mine in the hammered paint and its holding up well after a month of driving. But anywhere it get bumped or rubbed i have to go back over it.

It seems to me, that it would be an incredible waste to try and use body filler to fix all that rust. Even if you do an outstanding job prepping and applying it you are only buying yourself a year or two. Bondo and most spraypaints can't stop rust only slow it down. Getting a better body is the only choice.

When you get the now body make sure you clean up all the little rust spots. Also, do whatever you can for rust prevention. Sand, primer, and paint every spot.

Nates93yj 02-12-2009 08:55 AM

if i was going to fix the tub i have now i was going to do it right anyway with minimal bondo and maximum sheet metal. im getting my tub today and my rims so ill post some pics.
any suggestions for what to paint on the frame so it will last. thanks

Brads_nky_yj 02-12-2009 09:02 AM

POR 15 would be good to cover the frame with.
