650. But. All in all a grand is what i got into paint (after the first failed attempted) Martin Senior paint. Base coat. Clear coat. That was paint. And labor for the guy to paint it. That's the cheapest i found. Most were around 800 to a grand to paint it plus materials.
So, I haven't Really posted anything great on here in a while. It has been about a month since I put the CB in, no complaints so far. Had a Buddy finally buy a Jeep, Check out his Build thread here http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/9...hread-1529225/ (hes just getting started, not that i am that far ahead of him). I have a feeling we will be wrenching together often. I waiting on starting a new job, so the jeep moving a tad bit slower. (recent Speeding ticket didn't help that any)
Plans to Achieve this Summer
New Wheels, I'm looking at Mickey Thompson Sidebiters
New Tires (I will need them by the end of the summer) I want to Run 32x11.5 if not 33s
New Discs Next time I have to get new Brakes.
Possibly Regearing the Jeep, and Bushwacker Fender Flares (if I save the money)
Quick Discos in the Front- This may happen soon if my plan to just swap the bolts out for pins on the endlinks that came with the zone lift works.
So, while I'm sitting here at work, I figured I would catch up on my build thread. Again, I haven't done any real add-ons, or mods here recently. I applied New plugs and plug wires a few weeks ago. They have done wonders for the Jeep and have really made a difference. I took the Bolt out of my sway bar end links, and drilled a hole in them and used a lynch pin, They work well for Cheap Discos. They work well. The ZJ has been put on hold a little longer, having to pay some of school off currently. For sure, one of my next Big purchases will have to Be tires, especially before winter. I am going to 33s. Thats for sure, but Do I want Mud tire, or All terrain? This is my daily Driver. The Growl in the Rear end is getting louder, and I believe that will need to be addressed soon.
Side note: We have Achieved Some Progress on KDStewarts ZJ, Got his lights on, for those who have checked out his thread, He got a CB installed, and Being the Good person I am, I put a TPS in His ZJ while he was at work.
In the past month or so, I haven't got a whole lot done on the Jeep.
Whats been Done:
New Tires: BFG All Terrains 32s
New Pinion Seal for the Dana 35, Already leaking again, New Bearings, and Seal again to come soon
Issues to be addressed with soon:
Door sag has caused me too Break the Drivers door panel, Need to replace that soon, have pin and bushing set for the front two doors, plan on putting them in this week.
New Bearings and new Pinion Seal for the Rear as Said before.
Considering eliminating the Rear Sway Bar
Iv been throwing around the idea of building rock sliders that actually go up and support the outside for the fender as well.
Used the Jeep To go Pull KDStewart out, only to have to do it again in 5 minutes.
I retired the Jeep as my Daily Driver this week. Bittersweet Day. Bought a '06 Colorado with a 5 cyl, it'll be the "parts getter" along with getting better gas mileage for my commute to work.
