1999 TJ build

Well I moved to Puerto Rico and decided I wanted back in a jeep. Finding one at a reasonable price level was a pain. I found one but it needs a ton of work and I paid to much for it! Lol the way it goes on island life.
The jeep had a 4.6 stroker and a Pham turbo kit on it. 33" tires and no fender on the passenger side. Tons of issues to fix, lift and tire clearance needed. So this will be my spare time work at home. Bad thing is I sold all my stuff before moving. So tools needed have to be purchased as I go!
Spider gears were shot in the rear. I knew this going in. So I found an axle out of an explorer to put in. Also I have to replace the passenger side front axle.

Found a twisted up mess on the passenger side front lower arm bracket. I got some replacements from artec.

Things to be addressed. Before driving

Rear axle install 8.8 mentioned above
Magnaflow cat with downpipe.
Hooking all emissions back up
Hooking ac back up
Heater back up
4.25 zone lift.
Stock air box assembly
Front axle drivers side.
Rocker guards. ( I already have tub Damage from PO on drivers side. Thinking the guards will cover most and prevent further. )

Wants list

Seating needs to be replaced
New soft top (trektop NX is my fav so far)
New doors, full doors are in not so great shape, I'll get som Saavy half for off-road and another set of full doors down the line.

Oh I have already removed the turbo, selling it to fund some of the repairs!
