92 XJ build.. It's my first time, be gentle.

Well we are now a 3 car family, with my wifes Honda Accord and my new (to me) 2003 4runner the jeep has been retired to the garage to start her make over. This isn't really something i've ever thought about doing, especially with little mechanical experience. But with the wonder of the internet and the ability to learn just about anything through video and research i've gone from mildly excited to overly obsessive about the build.

My vision: 5-6" suspension lift, 33's, lockers, bumbpers, winch.. you know all the stuff that you tell yourself you need. Being as i'm in east texas I am opting for more clearance as i will likely encounter more mud and water than rock and ledge.

It will be slow going, but i'm excited about the aspect of picking a direction to go and seeing where it ends up.

Here is the base model, not mine but the exact same thing i got. 1992, 175k, 4.0L straight 6. So far i've picked up a newer 8.25 29 spline to replace what is likely the stock 27. It's been upgraded to disc brakes. once i get my locker ordered and installed i'll put it in. Till then i've worked on some of the body paint.

Garage job paint. i'll get some better pics after i'm done, i've only gotten to one side so far and haven't taken it out of the garage to get better pics. Industrial grade enamel white for the lower doors and bedliner for the fenders and rear quarter panel, as well as the rocker panels. I'll probably end up redoing all the bedlined parts with something more heavy duty, but for now this beats the heck out of the rubber stripping that was hanging off or starting to come lose. All the sheet metal parts have been stripped, sanded and primed before paint. The plastic parts... well who cares it's plastic.
