Got a new project and this time its a real project. Pictures are how it arrived, body is just sitting on the frame with a few bolts in it and the whole front clip had 4 bolts in it. Wire harness is wrapped around the engine. But whats under the body is the best part.
Here's the stats

I'm sure there is stuff I'm forgetting
The plan is right now just to get it running and driving. Need to put the wiring back together, new battery and cables, finish plumbing some lines for the brakes, take off the passenger side knuckle to have it machined so I can flip the steering to the top of the knuckles to fix bump steer. Bolt in the roll bar (looking for a family style YJ or TJ rear cage). Finish bolting on the body. And drive it
I got this jeep on a trade for a daily driver accord the last two previous owners had it inside for the last 3-4 years.
Right now im thinking of going with no front fenders but once i save up im thinking of some 3" flare tube fenders like metal cloaks and tube rear fenders, stinger rear bumper/tire carrier, stubby front bumper with a HF winch, body has to be sanded down and painted, there is a crap ton of bondo under the white paint because they wanted it to be a seamless show body. I want to spray in inside of the tub and cage with monstaliner (color undecided) and probably paint the exterior white.
Anyways heres some pics
