94 YJ build

When I got this jeep all it had was a 3" body lift and thats about all the pros it had going for it. the cons where bald 33x12.5 BFG AT, cracked windshield, shot body bushings, bad rust in 7 places, warped springs, broken zipper on the soft top, no hatch for the hard top, oil leak at the rear main seal and at the valve cover gasket, and they never did a gear swap after they put the larger tires on so had a lose of power.

a couple months I got it I had fixed the oil leak in the rear main seal and the valve cover. I also put on a pair of hella lights I forget the model but I think its 600, and also got new 33x12.5 BFG ATs


This is more recent after I made a mount for my HiLift jack on the hood, installed a Rough Country 4" suspension lift and regeared it with 4.10. I also broke the housing for my light trying to adjust it. a;sp my piston rod snaped and sliced my oil pan in half.


Well now that my jeep has some down time til I get an engine I decided to do some body work

My holes




I started grinding down for the first day


Now I have the entire interior riped out and working on the roll cage right now so I am capable of getting to all the places I need to with the grinder. my planes are to herculine the inside when after the body is taken care of

after looking at your pics i would say you might have a small hole in your oil pan. You might be able to get past by putting a little rtv on it for temporary use, but you might want to replace the whole pan with in the next few thousand miles

got the exhaust welded together yesterday but didn't get any pics before I put it up but I am waiting on my tailpipe to come in before I can fully finish up the exhaust.

I also filled in the holes for the step side I figure they ae kind of pointless with 8 inches of lift on it



and started on patching up the wheel well
