broke kids jeep build thread

well i guess i should start a build thread, been on here a little over a year now. man has time flew.

story time!!
well the jeep was my 17th birthday present. best one yet! i had been stalking cjs and willys on ewillys.com
but because of lack of power stearing and brakes i wasent allowed to get anything older than my dad.(43)
so my grandpa who is retired and has more guns than he knows what to do with. who also buys and trades guns all the time now saw the yj on a gun site. anyway my dad did some talking and i actualy didn't see the jeep before we bought it. but from lurking here on the forum i knew what to tell him to look for, told him to look for rust in all the usual places. there was non. so we thought. i have a little in the shock mounts so no huge deal.
anyway it had 87 hardtop and doors on it. i love these for the winter
so it was love at first sight when it showed up in the driveway after school. i started tinkering with it right away. drove it all summer wheeld it a little replaced the master cylinder for the clutch and all is well.
haven't done a whole lot on the jeep in a year but drive it.
i have so much i want to do to it.
Im sorry for the long post but i needed to start a thread to post my future projects in!
happy trails.
pics tomo. i got to track them down

i put 12xxx miles on it in the last year
man do i love this thing!.
couple weeks ago i won monsta liner!!! so excited to paint it.
need to do some body work first though. hopefully by the end of the month ill be ready to line it!

Crawling as far as I know if a way to get more people to see it. Like on the home page. Don't quote me on that because I'm not sure.

well ill post pictures later but i need to document the mirror that i put in the jeep! and all the crap its been throwing at me lately...
the mirror is out of a 99 gmc 1500 fullsize. the sensor was in the grill had a green and brown wire on it. i cut them and took then home for 5.95 woo!! it mountd on the yj mirror mount without any mods.

iv also replaced the belt and tightend the belt. it still squeaks a lil on start up. Any ideas?

I bet if you got a GMC button it'd work a bit better. Are you still squeaking at start up?

With all the talk of engine swaps running through the forum iv been doing some heavy reserch.
Latest find. I can buy a FI engine at the pick n pull w accessories for 185.
Weater gets warmer I might have to go on a scavenger hunt. I see a bunch of dodge trucks at my lot(318 or 360) and only some of the harnesses look hacked up wonder how hard it would be to get the whole thing out of there.

Been fighting to do anything to it. Money is so tight iv hardly done anything to her but drive.
I did the 20 gallon tank mod= free
And picked up some 1/2 in c channel to make a rear bumper out of.
Going to be buying new 33x12.50x15s from 4wp in a week or so. 161 a pice with free shipping! also need new rims but dont know where ill buy them from.

Craigslist has been no help for rims or tires in a 15'' rim size. But hell if had 17s people give them suckers away.
