Taking body off of frame (90' YJ)
Hey Im new to taking the body off of a frame. How much work is exactly involved in doing so?
A lot. Call me if you want any pointers. be sure to remove all the body mounts. There are a couple in the rear that I have seen a few people miss and bend the body trying to remove it.
Is the whole Jeep gutted? If the motor and all of the wiring are still intact........well, have fun. That would be a nightmare. I have had mine off, but when I did it, there was no motor and it was still a job and a half. Body mounts, and one of the bolts broke on the rear passenger corner, steering column, that wasn't too bad, brake booster, that wasn't too bad either, slave cylinder, worse, 1,000,000 vacuum hoses, horrible, grill and radiator, a little better. This is not a job for the amature by any means.

Hey it doesnt matter what I break, as long as the body and frame are intact in the end im good. I plan on putting a Black Diamond xtreme coil link suspension and repainting the entire body along with lynx or rhino liner on frame and entire under carriage. Question have you heard anything about the Black Diamond suspension?
