Use it til the frame rusts out. Then, cut out the rust, and build yourself a full cage to re-frame the rusted frame. Course, you could then go out and get another jeep for the time and money you'll spend. BUT that's Why we love these vehicles. Its NEVER about the resale value.

Thanks guys. I'm going to hang onto it. I have a friend that owns a shop and they're going to give me a good deal on fixing the rocker that's rusted out and cleaning up the spots that need done. Fix it up and make it a solid JGC again.

Work in progress.

Rocker repairs. Both completely rotten out. Replaced with new metal from C2C rockers.

Inner rockers getting repaired.

Fixed the frame hole on the rear passenger side with some thick gauge steel.

Took out the old deck and speakers. Replaced them with new Kenwood set up. Sounds awesome.

Got some new 31x10.50x15 tires from a YJ pull off I'm going to be looking at today. Once I have the tires the skyjacker lift is going in.
