Frame Up 98 TJ/Stroked/Currie 4 Inch/

About 4 months ago I lost power in the 3rd cylinder, and used this an excuse to start tearing down my beloved TJ to the frame.

I still have a lot to do this week, but I figured I would share a few update shots as the build progresses.

I am not going to overboard on the build but for starters: 4.7 Stroker, Currie 4 Inch Lift, Rebuilt Trans/NP231 with SYE/Ford 8.8 in the rear/Rebuilt Dana 30 in the front/ECTED in the front and rear (Heard some bad reviews on the ECTED, but we will see).

Upfront, many thanks to Mr. Blaine with Black Magic Brakes for his endless wisdom on building Jeeps.

I have been slacking on my build for a long time, but today I am going to push forward hard in honor of our brothers and sisters in arms. Thanks to all the Marines, Airmen, Sailors, and Soldiers who have served, and remembrance to those who paid the ultimate price so we can live free in this great nation.

Rustoleum/Powder Coating

For the frame had a friend with a connection with a Powder Coating shop. For 250.00 they blasted and Painted the frame and skid plate. For the axles and odds and ends I found Rustoleum Primer and Performance Enamel to work great. If you prep the metal right it applies smooth as silk and it cures hard. 1464837755272588847098.jpg
