My XJ Rebuild

After having the Jeep sit for almost 2 years and barley getting used, I decided to start fresh. It will get completely sanded down in and out, bed liner in the cab, and sprayed with Metallic Silver.

I started today removing everything out of the cab the gas tank since it is also getting replaced and the rear bumper / hitch (which will be refinished as well).








My pup wanted to help!


And Chillin in the Shade....









Hitch Pulled -







That's going to need to get fixed....


Bumper pulled and finished for the day -

Made some more progress today... Still have a long way to go!

Interior completely stripped and ready for sanding -


New gas tank and pump came in today, set it up and put it off to the side -


Was straightening up in the garage and needed more room...


Need to pull the back door still -


Getting there -


All the trim, bolts, tid bits and seals waiting to get cleaned up and re-installed after paint -

A little more progress this weekend. Mostly just clean up. Had to watch my sisters dogs at her place so I wasn't home much. Plan on starting to sand the exterior tonight...






Also, finally built my body armor for the driver side. Cutting out the gas tank hole was a major PITA.

Nope sure Haven't... I am going to wait until after I paint the entire Jeep in case there is any over spray inside the cab. One less thing to worry about.
