I soap and water with a scotch pad then Windex or some other window cleaner with amonia and a paper towel. Probably a little overkill but worth it in my opinion. It's lookin great man. You are gonna pull the dash and seats and stuff before you junk the old tub right? How is the hood and tailgate? You could probably make a little money selling it off.

Thanks man. I just crammed my exhaust back together yesterday and I'm hoping it will hold till I get a welder to fix it up right. I don't want to spend a lot on it if I'm gonna do the 4.0 swap either. You want to buy it? haha. I can't wait to see yours all finished. It's gonna be sick.

Sweet. Thats what it's all about is learning how to do stuff. My dad and I are looking at getting a welder soon. He hasn't welded in years though so we are gonna have to stock up on scrap to practice on. haha. What transmission do you have? AX5? Puegot crap? AX15? I have the Puegot in mine right now but will probably put the AX 15 in soon. The Puegot is like a BA10 or something like that.

Yeah, I have the resources too. My dad works on diesels all day long. Now you got me thinking. Nah, I do see it in the future though. Thanks

Got the rear corner guards mocked up and the bolt holes drilled.



Side veiw



Got the rear driver side cut out for the tj flares. Holey **** do you have to cut out a lot. But that much more flex would be nice



Heated up the inner fender well and beat it in.



The red circle was were the screw hole for the tj flares mount, thats how much i cut out.

The Green Rectangle was were I cut the spot welds, so i could pound it some more

The Yellow rectangle was where i would have like to cut the spot welds. I still might later on



another pic. kinda bad



Thats all, thanks

Ordered two of these gas tank straps
