virgin build

So I bought my dream car, an 87 Yj. I bought this for $2,000 without even driving it. There was not a stitch of rust on it! Some old guy was driving it around. First thing I did was replace every fluid, seal and belt. There was a lot of oil everywhere and couldn't find where it as coming from. So I replaced the valve cover and gasket, oil pump and pan gasket. Cleared it right up. Then I stripped the inside and monsta lined the interior. I swapped for a family roll bar for my 5 year old daughter(who loves the jeep more then me). I ran her for a year on stock everything. Surprisingly she did well off road. Then it was onto adding testosterone. I pieced together my lift with 2" BDS springs, Daystar BL, boom shackles from Besrk, scratch and dent Skyjacker shocks and steering stabilizer, Crager soft 8's that I had to sand and paint and 31" Trxus. I had to do a drop pitman arm and I made my on transfer case. Also added steel brake line extensions and installed all new tube brake lines. I just put a new Supertop and a VDP console. Now she looks a little bit more mean and manly. First test off road is Saturday so we will see how she does.

I MUST thank everyone here, especially Anticanman. Everything I did, I did myself and learned from you guys. So thank you very much!

I think I got really lucky. I am sure I am jinxing myself but so far every horror story, i.e. rusted seized bolts, etc I have not experienced.

The ones that were on in the first picture? I still have them. Not the tires just the rims
