Project PHX Rebuild

ALL OF MY PICTURE LINKS BROKE... SKIP TO BOTTOM OF PAGE 5!


Born from the ashes...

Last May end of school...





Finally back at school and ready to tear into this *****..







Plans

New HP D30 Gusset and truss the bastard.
Swap over the 4.11s, steering and stuff.

New Radiator.. waste of a 3-core.. time to buy another one.

Durango Steering box, big custom bumper, tweaks and reinforcements all around stay tuned for updates.



SKETCHY Jacks made this thing so tippy frontwards.



Look at that Pitman arm its twisted big time.






please do not tip forward in the night.. lol wish i had a real jack at school.




Saturday I pick up the axle and then it should be getting trussed and geared next week. I missed my jeep this summer back in NY but my internship kept me busy now its time to rebuild!

The fender on the Raptor costs more than a Jeep! Great job on the rebuild!

Damn, too bad about your jeep, but seeing a wrecked Raptor brought a tear to my eye...

full payout from nationwide, he was at fault 75% so I got another 750 bucks from insurance because of that. We were on BLM property non injury accident didn't even have to call 911. (we did tho) Ya the raptor had a lot of "hidden" damage

Ya I have had this guy since I was 15 and there are way to many "little" mods that would not be able to transfer over to a new jeep. I invested the insurance money and I'm rebuilding it with money I made over the summer... win-win! It would be on d44s front and rear if I dumped the 7200 bucks all back into it!
