and here it is with the other xj that will be reciving it's parts.
getting kinda crowded around dads right now, i have 4 of my projects currently ( and three are jeeps!)
sad it looks so good with what i am gonna do!
seeing it sitting there next to the merc, makes me really want to see the merc with the wheels/tires off the jeep on it!
and as for the buisness end of it, i will come out very well on it all which will help greatly in paying for parts to fix and sell the tracker and paying for the 00' xj !
750 - 96 xj
125 - fuel
a buddy is buying a slew of items and funding a good part of it at this point. and as well as he is awsome enough to front some cash and is a good buddy he is getting some pretty decent prices.
all for 600 wich we both thought was pretty fair.
so i have 275 invested so far and here is how i see a good share of the rest breaking down roughly, and there may be some other items too, but here are the major parts guesses..
left to sell
price before is what i will ask, and price on right will be about the lowest i will take unless a special deal
300 rear axle complete with locker 250
500 motor/trans 300
200 shell for scrap ( however heavy it is at time of scrap)
200 rear hatch 50
and whatever other little things that i figure i can
and i am going to use the following from the 96 on the 00
lift kit - direct swap
radiator - if not same i will sell and buy correct. as the 96 has a 3 year old rad.
front high pinion d30 with locker. - and sell the low pinion d30 in the 00 ( the high pinion is a fair bit better, plus locker)
doors- either full or cut to half if they will fit ( and i think i can make it happen)
seats - swap so i can sell the good ones
stereo - has a half decent pioneer and i will swap and sell the stock one in the 00
front tow hooks- or at least the plates used to support them,
trailer hitch - is 6 mos old, and will use at least the braces from them for support for whatever we put.
and in addition to the rest i am allready selling off the 00 i will sell the rear axle and use some profits and get a for 8.8 with disk and swap it in and weld it up. which will make about the last thing i will have to buy, but i am buying with profits so still not bad! and will pay for better rear axle as well as the tires we are putting on it.
and extra bonus... he gave me an extra set of wheels, that happen to have usable tires. wich are at least $40 in just scrap!
and as for the progress from friday..
i got a fair bit of stuff done on the 96, got it stripped down enough that all needs to be done is pull the radiator and strip off the axles and doors and such. and it will be ready for the yard soon ish if i can keep up the progress.
the two jeeps are starting to look alot alike!
got all the seats out, these will go in the 2000 for us to use and not care about, which they are in perfect shape for!
got the dash/stereo out (will put the pioneer from this in the 00'
but pull the carpet up and you find a very common issue with the xj's even more so those from the rust belt
front driver floor
rear driver floor
got the wheels and tires off
here are the ones he gave me as extra's, not the greatest but kennys dad is gonna put them on his 94 sploder for the summer
as it sits for now
