Pix of the work in progress
Well here they are, not the best pics but snapped a few off it before I got it over to my freinds wharehouse to pull the engine.
The facts on it:
Paid $300 for it hasnt been driven for 10 years was buried up to the tub in Georgia mud. The guy bought it for a hunting jeep and passed away. The beat up 4 banger actually has 63K miles on it but every hose on the thing was dry rotted to shreds.
Originally had a Hydrolic Ramesy wench (I think Ramsey) welded to the bumper had that torched off when I pulled the beat up front end off (A tree had fallen on it and had to be chainsawed off before I could pull it out)
The only bad rust on it is at the base of the tub area and under the window frame. Window frame isnt that bad not sure If I am going to replace it.
Picked up a good condition 258 for $150 that Im going to replace the 4banger with. Already have new Fenders/hood/Seats and more. Going to pull steering colum this weekend and have it sand balsted next week before I drop in new engine and start that and the Suspension work.
