02' WJ RE-Build

Okay, on with another build or rebuild for the matter of another jeep. This one is a 2002 WJ Laredo <-Correct me if i spelled it wrong lol, anyways, I6 with 145,029 miles , 242, I believe a D35 in the rear, it has a CV joint at the t-case and a u-joint on the axle side. Tinted windows all around, aftermarket tail lights that are tinted, and is Dark Metallic Grey in color... Picked it up for $2,675(Sales tax included) from my part time job[Midwest Auto], A jeep salvage yard. Well the jeep had sat in the yard for a few months now and i decided I really wanted to get back into a WJ just for the simple fact we have our 1 month old riding in the back and the XJ seems to be a little crowded.

11-1-2011 Is the day I took possesion of this Jeep, and my birthday is 11-21, so maybe in 20 days ill be done with it and it will be a gift not only to me but to my wife. I know all this talk and not much about why it was only $2,6075. Just so happen this Jeep is wrecked, but it was hit above the frame rail in the center of the hood, and wiped out, well you know what is under the hood and above the crossmember, so all this is being replaced.

Pics of 11-1-11
Only two, but it gives you the idea of what I'm working with.



11-2-2011
Got off from work 3pm to 1am the day before and worked in the garage from 1 to about 2:45AM on the jeep getting things apart.

Are you going to bring it back to stock(ish), or are you planning to lift or anything?

Yay! I found it, well I didn't find it... But looks like a good plan! Should be a lot of fun and in the end be a great vehicle!

Got the radiator from 1800radiator located in Evansville, IN. Scoured one of the junkyards in hope of finding an even cheaper hood and fender but no luck. Seems like my job is the only one around here who has a vast variety of jeeps. Looking to charge all my parts at work so i can finish this up this following week, so we'll see how that goes Tuesday when i stop by for a few.

Test fit the radiator and condensor, as I sort of thought, the front crossmember needs to be pulled out about 1"-1.5"? If that so looks like a big tree will com in handy again for this job. Just gonna pull it out enough to clear the condensor. Same thing happened on my 03' I had when i wrecked it.

Other good news, I still have a couple gallons of HOAT coolant from the 03' when it messed up, so I need to get some distilled water now.
