This is seriously really cool! I love the front clip of the older jeeps. May I ask what you paid for that YJ?

I paid 3000 for it.It has brand new less than 1000 miles KM2's and a rough country lift on it,so I paid a little more than I would have.But the frame is really solid and the only rust on the tub was where the boatsides went.

Got the fenders all finished,she is ready for paint!!!I had to finish welding the boatsides on the fenders today.

Before


After




The only thing I may do is do a little work on where the fender boatside meets the tub boatside,The tub is thicker material.It doesn't look bad so I don't know.
