No stretch TJ build for the wife.

I picked up a 97 TJ with a 4" suspension lift to build for my wife. I got a really good deal on it through some trading. Needs some typical TJ frame repair and I'm going to paint it. It's currently a 4 cylinder 5 speed. Long term plan will involve an engine swap. Other than that we don't have really any direction planned yet.

So the home brew left over paint worked out so good on the stretched yj that I decided I would see what I could do for this one. She wants a pinkish color. This came out ok, sprayed a test panel on a paint can! I'm not sure if I will use it yet. I'm going to price out some "Pink Panther Pink" as I want something a little more high impact.

This build is still in progress, just very slow! I have been terrible at updating it!

I ditched the awful grill guard and swapped in some Harley Davidson headlights!



I replaced the worn out original tan soft top with a sailcloth top from a late model tj. I got the top free from a friend! The rear window has a very small crack. My plan is to pick up a set of tinted windows for it.

I removed the rusted out window frame and replaced it with a good used unit. Sadly this is the only picture I took of the swap!

I need a larger garage! I hate that they can't all be inside during the winter! I suppose if I got rid of the Demon and Trans Am we could fit them!
