Just a typical niner build
So this will be my 7th jeep and now I feel like its time for proper build thread lol.
So picked up this baby doll from an old lady for $600 no reverse but clean interior ( except center console leather and headliner) clean paint. Ended up saving it because her son was getting ready to run it over with his 2.5 ton mud truck if he didn't sell it that night.
When I bought it, it had not a drop of tranny fluid (probably the cause of the transmission burning up), drivers door was completely eaten away around the latch so a door patch was needed. Also I guess they were having cooling problems and couldn't figure it out and ATTEMPTED to wire in an aftermarket relay, well they failed and long story short I ended up over heating it on the way home figured out what it was had some wire in my other jeep hard wired it and made my way home. once it got home it just sat for like 6 months on the side of my house didn't touch and didn't have the time to mess with it. Then the rear end in the 5.2 zj decided to explode so instead of just buying a rear end I decided to just drive the 5.9 and make that nice while I build axles to go under the 5.2.
Soooooooo on to what I've done to this beauty already...
Change the oil and oil filter
Change the rear diff oil with the additive (needs new clutches)
L.E.D. dash lights
Full detail compounded and buffed the whole thing
Valve cover gaskets
Adjusted the bands and trans flush in the hopes of resurrecting reverse
Door patch welded in with new hinge pins
And finally had to slay some tires with this thing
Now onto what I got coming up for her..
Transmission I work at a shop and worked out a deal with our tranny guy to trade my ranger for a rebuilt tranny and rear main with him doing all the work.
Headliner and center console getting that done for free trading off some work with an interior shop on his personal vehicle.
New tires with an alignment part of my tire problem
Thinking about dropping it never done anything like that but I see the every once in a while and think its neat and different. plus I don't need to take it off-road because I have the 5.2 zj
I don't have many pictures even though I wish I would've taken more throughout this whole process and build so far but I will snap more as time goes by. I would appreciate anybody's input and what not
