I'm on a tight budget and I could look up shocks for the JK at my work and put them on my tab. That way I get them all at once and only pay twenty bucks a week for them instead of dropping a hundred right away when I'm trying to get the springs/coils too.

Any Input on leaf springs? Should I get 2 inch heavy or 2.5 mediums?

Well Ordering coils soon, and then OME HD leaves in a couple weeks. Meanwhile fixing up the "little things" with the jeep.
Drivers side floor pans look pretty good


BUT


I will be riveting sheetmetal down this weekend and bedlining the interior. Will post pics after I finish. I'm leaving the carpets out and I have some nice cover all floormats to go down.

Yep.

It's going to be quite the project. ALOT of cutting the biggest PITA will be the seat mount how it doesnt sit flush with the floor and that is quite rusted. I'm going to run sheet metal underneath that and then clean that up as much as possible and if I have to cut rust out of it and strengthen it. Can't wait to get it done although its pretty funny driving around with one seat.

Cleaned up the floor boards a little bit more and ran around getting stuff to get this done on sunday. Sawzall blades, rivets, and a couple 12x24 inch 16ga sheet metal pieces,and some self-etching primer.

What should I use for a liner on the inside? I used 3M rubberized undercoating on the outside and was thinking of using it again. Although I might try Duplicolor bedliner because we have it at my work any input on that stuff?

look up raptor liner, I have heard lots of good things about it. Its about $100 at the places that sell it and it comes with the gun to spray it on.

Hmm I might look into that I just dropped alot on sheetmetal to get my floors done tomorrow so I might not have enough I might use the 3M stuff for now. Thank you for the input though you seem to be the only one paying attention to my build.

Scored a brand new BFG on a rim for 40 bucks. Got a spare now! With a fresh coat of paint on the rim:

Well my co-worker and I fixed the floors in my jeep today. Big thanks to him I couldn't have done half as good a job without him. Pics of it all cut out and primered. I used Rustoleum Primer for Heavy Rust.

And all sealed up and riveted down.


It was kind of a ***** with that beam for the seat mounts. we had to slide a piece underneath it. I'm going to use some foam in a can to seal up under that really good. If you look at that you can see the plug that's probably for power seats which I don't have so it would be real easy to hook them up.

From here I gotta bedline the floors and tackle the other side. There is only a quarter sized hole in the other side thank god. I'm glad I don't have to do this ever again haha.
