Jspecfever 87 MJ build

Since I have one for my XJ ill make one for my MJ.

This thing has been in my family since before I came around.. It spent the last 20 some years as a hunting truck. After I T-boned a honda in my S-10 Blazer my dad gave me the MJ.

November 2005
So this is what I started with.

4.0 I6 5 speed tranny






First thing I did was I got rid of the ugly camper shell. Then i got rid of the stock 215/75/15 tires and got some 30" knock off brand mud tires off craigslist.

November 2005

My First stuck..

My friend and I went on some trails around his place and i saw this damn stump so....i tried to swing around it but that didnt work..good thing is that i didnt tear anything up.

I burried it up to the axle.. couldnt go anywhere..



note: sorry for the crappy pics.. these were take on my retro cell phone

Its been a good while since I've showed this thing some love.

Today I bought some rolled on bed liner from Advanced Auto parts. $75.99 for the kit. Not too bad came with everything except sand paper. Today was the perfect day to do it also. Not too hot or too cold, just perfect.

This turned out great I think so! Very happy with this kit and would recomend it to anybody. Thanks CJ7258, Gaywolf, and his son Darren I believe.

Here's the pic of the finished product.
