94 YJ Build (SBC) (SOA)

Hey All I am in the process of building my Wrangler to my linking. I have had it sense the spring of 2010 after rolling my 98 grand Cherokee 5.9.. Im not going to type much cuz I know you dont wanna read you just want pics! What I want out of my jeep...

Power!
Lift!
articulation!

That to much to ask??? We'll see

Bought It for 1800$ from Madison Wisconsin. Doors wouldn't open tranny skid bolts were broken off the entire driver side, Missing one motor mount. It almost hit the hood when you hit the gas.. Yea..






Drove it all the way home 4 hours and the linkage Broke as I pulled it into my dad's shop.. And just to clear something up.. If i knew then what i knew now i wouldn't of done anything other then trailered that thing home.. It really wasn't road safe.

fenders were rusted to crap so I cut them and put tubing on only to quickly realize they looked terrible so i re did them in diamond plate

Did i mention I had no money to do any worthwhile mods at this point??

I wanted to get all the rust from my tub before I sprayed in bed liner so I cut all of it out and welded/silicone new steel


bed liner prep


sand blasted the entire tub


I was very happy how It turned out IT has only worn off in one spot but It was my fault becuse I didnt clean one of the peaces of metal I welded in and it still had some oil on it so the bed liner didnt stick








a stock YJ i found sitting all alone and my cousins TJ
