Yes sir!! Could have got ugly out there.

Once we got home and I situated the caliper bolt, Jeep got a little sticker in mail. I dig the whole zombie idea and had these delivered for less than $3, one for each side:


My buddy showed up to work on his TJ, while my other friend was finishing up his AK-47 build:

Looking great!

I got a great deal on these lightly used 33"X12.50"s Goodyear Duratracs so I thought I would go ahead and get them mounted before my axles go in.

I gotta say they fit well with my 1.5" Superlift and 5/8" booms. I did a few test flexes and no rubbing. I might stick with this lift for a while and maybe just add a 1" body lift. Axles are in the garage waiting to be installed...



Thought you might be interested in seeing them on a lift similar to your old one.

Good luck on finding a job and keep up the great work!

Did some more work on the Jeep, one step closer to bedliner:






I let primer sit overnight and went onto cleaning the Jeep. No matter how much soap and water you use, mud stains stay on everything that's black. Had to go over the trim with non-sticky tire shine. Works great, back to black!:

Those caliper bolts are known to come loose, completely out, or strip. So much so - that http://shop.blackmagicbrakes.com/Knu...-Saver-Kit.htm makes a repair kit for YJ's and several other Jeeps.

Blaine and I repaired one last week (actually, I watched/handed him tools ) on A TJ Rubi D44.

Update 9/16:

A little progress on the interior overhaul:








Proceeded to rip carpet out, had no idea how much crap was under it. Luckily no rust, slight surface rust in couple of very small spots, nothing a wire wheel wouldn't take off. Gotta love west coast Jeeps, very minimal to no rust


PO used a quarter and duct tape for a drain plug


Using a harbor freight $3 knife for the job. About all this knife is good for. For everything else, I use a Ka-bar:


Filthy carpet is finally out!




Not too long after, the harbor freight angle grinder took its last breath as it ended its 20% duty cycle lifespan:


I was on my way to HD for a better brand, something that would handle some work. A Worker asked me what I was planning on grinding. I told him about my Jeep project, said harbor freight failed me and I needed to get back at it. He apparently loves Jeeps so much, I was out the door with a 30% discount on my new Milwaukee 7A grinder


goal is to finish everything by this weekend

I spent a few more hours on the project with the new grinder. Worked like a charm!


Lol!!


Has to get ugly before it looks good:




First shot with primer, Rust-Oleum self etching works great:










Let it dry overnight, next morning shot it with bed liner:
















All done for the most part, still have a few spots to touch up in the back:

Hey Adil, I saw your buddies post on Craigslist about working on Jeeps, I was thinking about taking my Jeep over so they could help put on this BB I have laying around.

I made that while looking for a job. My buddy and I both got laid off around the same time so we're doing Jeep work on the side.

Installed a lift and 32" tires for someone last Sunday, they loved it!

Let me know when you need anything done. Feel free to call or drop a pm
