94 yj build...too broke to build a workbench
I figured I might as well start a thread for this build. I have learned so much on here that I figured I would share some of my knowledge.
I bought the Jeep after a semi ran a stop sign and I totaled out my truck. Being in Wisconsin, it had the regular rust issues but it had the 4.0 and auto. On the ride home I lost the exhaust and the brakes.
I got it home and the work started.
I dont have any pictures from the first month. I fixed the brake lines, fuel lines and all fluids changed, etc. I drove it around for a month but everytime I got out I looked to see if the frame was broke.
Finally, my wife looked at me and said "why dont you take the body off and fix it right" That was all I needed to hear and that is when the project started. 30 min later I had the body off!!
I had a really tight budget (doesnt everyone) $1200 for everything! So I started coming up with a plan. Here is the initial build list.
*fix rust on frame
*MML and tranny crossmemeber
*move body mounts up, instead of BML
*coat inside and underside of tub
