After driving it many trail runs the ring and pinion finally gave out on me leaving me stranded. Replaced the gears with new ones and threw in a lunch box locker to strengthen it up. Drove it for nearly a year until I got into an accident involving a pole. Let's just say that the pole won. Hit the front bumper, slid off and then hit the front fender/ grill which pushed my fender back and shoved my battery tray through my firewall. At that moment I thought all was lost and it would never hit the streets again.
This is a picture of the day that we brought into the shop to tear it apart and assess the damage.
We decided that the jeep was worth more than just a couple hundred bucks from a scrapyard and decided to rebuild it. From the frame up.
This is a pic of the bare frame after we took the body off and in between searching for a new tub.
