Lol drab green. We started the front half. ( I shoulda posted pics). I painted my xj drab green (paint cans from wallmart) and it turned out good and is lasting. If I ever want to it can be touched up easy. There was no since in us giving it a nice paint job that we will end up scratching on some brush.

After we took the hub off we found that we needed all new bearings in it. We got all that back together with new brakes. Still need to finish other side. Apparently I don't have a popular dana 60 so parts are harder to find also somebody before us had ground down the numbers off the axle tube.

Haven't done to much lately. Today I started doing the rest of the body work. After I finish that we will herculine the inside then order wiring, route our brake lines and order a driveline.

Depending how you go with it, it's alot of work not to much parts for these. I still have the original engine I need to sell.
