WJ on Power Nation Truck Tech

Anyone watch this new project where they are going to "flip" a WJ for profit?

Watched it so far. Did some body work and repaired a wheel (which was really cool to watch even though I can't do it haha) and also painted the wheels. They didn't do anything major to it so far. Not sure if they are done with it or not.

Yeah, I have been watching it. The rear bumper fascia repair was interesting. I am hoping that they do more to it.

yea, been watching it. Actually watch the "power block" every saturday and sunday. Now its some power nation shenanigans. I will have to say the WJ project is kinda lame so far. Cool to know they have that type of repair out there (I had no idea), but I want to see something more than this and the expedition rig they did. It would be nice if Iron Rock and Kevins Off Road would throw some parts at a WJ and let them go to town.

If you Google power nation TV you can go to the site and watch full episodes. I always set my DVR to record it Haha. I would like to see them do more but be surprised if they do since it's soul purpose was to repair and flip. But that can always change and hopefully it does.

Yeah that's one of the only reasons that they are popular. I've seen their lower control arms snap and the guys jeep flipped.

I so want to do the leather seat cleanup and respray like they just did, anyone use other paint besides the duplicolor? I recall using something from SEM years ago that was a body shop type item not sold at local parts store? I'd rather have my seats stay the factory type dark charcoal than be black?

The wheels they painted made a huge difference and looked great for a factory wheel. I wish they would keep this wj and to a budget build.
