93 YJ Clean and Simple

This thread is for my dad, he picked up his first jeep in febuary, as soon as he drove it all the jeep bugs crawled out from under the seat and bit him. All of the work is being done by him and yours truly (his son). It has came a long way in a short time but hopefully will go a lot further.

Heres the night we brought her home. Traded a 95 chevy z71 for her. Its a 93 160,000 on the 2.5l. Runs pretty good, doesnt seem to have been off road much.












Kinda rough, first thing we did was strip the interior and clean it up, no pics though. Updates later tonight.

Ordered the 15x10 soft 8's and the 33x12.5 wrangler duratracs. Had to see what theyd look like next to the jeep. Also started on the body work taking care of some of the rot.

Then the paint started. Went with chevy red and decided to try something a lil different with the paint did a black rocker stripe and a hood blackout.








Couldnt resist sitting the tires up next to it, lift is up next.

Up next on the list is a new front bumper, winch, a rear bumper with spare tire carrier, and a new top. Been thinking of possibly doing a tj soft top, does anybody have any experience with this mod?
