okay ya actualy I think I may do dupli colour as I have read many good things about there engine enamal's. and I was thinking a red block, chrome valve cover, metalic blue pulleys.

Hey guys, sorry havent been on recently. Been very busy!! Well got some good news today! My dad showed his boss the pics of my jeep and his boss (companie owner) told him that he can't believe the progress I have made and that i'm 14 and restoring a jeep. So long story short he told my dad that I could use their compressor at work (3000psi I think but can be adjusted) and use there sand blaster for the frame! gota love that! In return I may have to put a small logo of the companie on the Jeep since he likes the colour of it (as we call it Bradley Blue) but hey If i don't need to pay anything to sandblast the frame thats great! Here is a pic of the compressor attached to my dads F-150
Damn How I love the Plumbing /hvac companie my dad works for!

I got my YJ when I was 15, damn shame I didn't have the resources or the support that you have. You got a pretty good deal and it seems like your off to a great start. <-- this guy is definitely subscribing. Just a side note, for what it will cost you to redo the 4.0 block and head, you may want to consider a cheap v-8 swap. If you work it out right you could get it done for around 1500 maybe, this is in small town Missouri but still.

Better gas and power. Just a suggestion. There are tons of guys on here that have done it and plenty of places to do your research on it.

Nice man! Hope you love your YJ I sure live mine!! As for the 4.0 block its in GREAT shape, a little surface rust but compretion is perfect, no scoring or anything on the cylinder walls. Can't believe it has 280 000 on it. But will keep the v8 idea in mind!
