****So it appears that my photo hosting website decided to flake out and change their format. I am working on uploading all my build photos to another server and linking them to this build.****
So a couple of months ago I stumbled upon a 93 YJ 4.0L 5spd that was in pretty tough shape but super cheap. I drug it home like I always seem to with jeeps that really deserve to be scrapped! Floors are gone, both quarters are pretty well shot, frame has typical YJ rot.
Initially I was just going to repair the rust, put a new top on it, repaint and sell it.
I ordered the Keystone factory style floor pans and kept browsing craiglist for good deals on parts. I kept seeing a unlimited soft top for a great price but no deals on YJ tops. I got to thinking and began to search to see if anyone had stretched a YJ and used a LJ top. Low and behold I find "dukegnarly's" thread and I was instantly sold on the idea!
I called my local junk yard and bought a YJ tub that someone had hacked the cowl section off from. Bought the LJ top that I had been seeing on Craigslist. Finally I did some measuring and ordered some steel from my local supplier to build corner armor from.
Now I am in the process of replacing the floors in my super rusty tub to stiffen it back up some so that I can take it off the frame without it buckling! I think I am going to order the Classic Enterprises floor supports tomorrow as mine are beyond repairing!
Now for some pictures....
