Ok update
well i decided to go with original tubes instead of my design personal i just think its cleaner, i still need to get the tubes bent


A little more work on the bumper its turning out really nice, No extra metal was needed i just cut the old stuff and recylcled it. need to notch it out a little to clear the front cross member


Well here is the most BEASTLY shot i have so far it looks a lot better with all the rims flat black

Grinded the old spring hangers in the front to put the new ones on. Sitll need to do some grinding


Pretty beffy spring hangers from ruffstuff but there a universal so its a little wider than the fram and the hole is about a half inch up so ill lose about half inch up front, but oh well

Then i found this the ****ing dumb frame is ****ing bent god dam, right where the frame starts its curve up its bent up a little. Where the 3 holes are you can kinda see a bulge out in that spot. So im going to find a shop that can bend it back.

Sorry i didnt get back to you, I never look at my build. Yeah tell me how you like the RC kit. I cant help you with tires or rims, it took me forever to find free swampers and probably will never find them again.


UPDATE: I wanted to get some speakers and stero and with my luck they were both on sale
Infinity 4x6s

Kenwood not sure witch kind just the Best buy special


Then i ordered a driverside floor pan


I need some new body mount bolts (not the mounts) so does anybody make replacments or should I just get some bolts from my hardware store. I thought about getting a BL but I dont want too much lift, i guess i could get a new dastar kit with stock height. What do you Jeepers think

EDIT: I will get some pics up of the tub tomorrow, cus im getting ready to take the frame to a buddys shop

thanks green89yj,

Well today i put a battery in my jeep and took some flexy shots with sway bars removed. Im pretty impressed with the flex on stock suspension and 31x12.50s

Even though the fenders a little beat up it bent the fender up even more

Getting some body work done and preping for paint.

putting in the new floor pan

the old wiring harness pile

After i got off work i got some things acomplished
I bought these http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showt...=692874&page=2 i know they are for the tj but they fit and they were cheap.
Got the floor board put in, my brother put it in and he worked at a body shop but i wasnt very impressed. What matters is that it is in.


I sand blasted the frame and it is a mess. im still trying to get the sand off my body but its not working.


I just did the front half of the frame

Why ruin a good moment. JK. And you mean Pepsi. haha

UPDATE:

Took the top of to get the roll bar out. Sorry no pics with no roll bar. Got the back seat out, seat belts(not to hard though, pic to follow) Shatttered 2 more torx bits, its funny i only break the T45 bit i actually need


This is why it wasnt too hard to get the seat belts out. haha . I just ripped them out, nothing much holding them in.


Well since Im blasting the frame my dad wants me and him to beef up the frame and did I say BEEF. I really think its over kill but why not


More beef
