I decided my last ZJ build page was really boring. Basically just pages of maintenance. I also abandoned that jeep after I bought my 'new' ZJ from the Junkyard. I paid $1000 for it. It was supposed to be non running, but as soon as I got it home I put a battery in it and it fired right up. Only 165k too.

I ditched the dented fender and decided to do a quick and cheap paintjob on the hood.
Didn't really do a A1 job but it will do for now. Needs to be buffed as well.
Picked up a D30HP from the junkyard for $150 (3.55) I plan on just regearing it to a 3.73 since that's what's currently in the rear.
Artec LCA mounts
Started my custom 409 stainless exhaust. V-Band system.
Getting pretty serious.
Alloy USA tube seals, I really like these things! Also painted shafts.
Taking a short break on the lift in the rear. I'm going out of town and need to order some other parts in order it finish the lift. Here's the completed stainless crossover pipe and catalytic converter (Magnaflow High Flow). All 2.25 409 (Fittings were 304).
That bumper turned out pretty awesome. Like the charcoal color. Shame you had to cut that much out of the floor in the rear.
Is the rest of it that bad? I'm not sure if I understood your last post, is something wrong with the rear axle?
