A little more sheet metal work. Not worries about perfection as I will be lining inside and bottom with bedliner. However, not sure on brand.....Lizard Skin, Monstaliner etc. suggestions?

Differentials. Cleaned up, POR 15ed, all new internals.......4.88 gearing, straight axle rear with posi trac. And armored diff covers. Thanks to Pyle bros in Baytown Texas. I also did a disc brake conversion on the rear.

I Line Xd my interior. It shows a lot more imperfections than you would think so spend the time. Also, it is really hard to remove and it sucks to weld around. I will probably use something thinner like Lizard Skin next time.

So I found some pics my wife took when my oldest son and I were tearing apart the Jeep before Christmas. Sorry about not having these pics in order, but I should have started using Jeep Forum from Day 1. As you guys know, tearing it apart was easy….it is putting it back together that is the "process"! My rott even helped out.

I also put a picture of my garage AKA Man Cave before I started this project.
