have you considered using a regular TJ or LJ ragtop? If done right it'd probably look awesome and keep the rain out.

What's this waiting for summer crap? Man up and throw on a jacket! I think you'll be happier in the long run starting with a fresh body. My advice is take your time, do it once and do it right. If you have a place to let it sit while you work on it, gut the driveline, do some stiffeners, sliders and anything else with it out of the way. That's my biggest regret about mine, having to move it frequently so everything was rushed and corners were cut.

Lol I cant believe I missed all of this. The Jeep looks great. The half doors are boss and getting the spare XJ would be a nice for Pepper. Btw, are those 33s on there right now?

haha school man, im doing 14 credits right now so ive got my work cut out plus the jeep is 4 hours away. ive been thinking of doing stiffeners and plating the unibody upfront and if i get this new xj, i might do it. the 2 door im looking at looks like it too the hitpretty hard and low. cosmetically it needs the front fascia, headlight bezels, grill, bumper, drivers fender, flare, end cap, but it looks like the axle was pushed back. i need to talk to the guy and see what more info he can give me to see if its worth it.

thanks man and those are bald 35" KMs. they are from the 80s lol.

i got more info on the other 99 2 door.

its a white sport, 4.0, auto, 30/8.25, tan interior, looks like it took the hit hard and low on the drivers side, looks like the front end is moved back a bit. im gonna try to get more info and make sure its not worse than it looks.

hey, what are you going to do for a lift on the new build? I'm looking at a BUNCH of crap for the HEEP right now. I think I'm going with T&T sliders and frame stiffeners, AJ's Off-Road rear bumper with swing out tire carrier, and I'm still deciding on what LA upgrade kit to get. Right now the front runners are T&T and BDS.

Just wondering what YOUR plans were for all this stuff.

Doesnt look too bad.... just looks like it wants to flex.

I had a question for you. What part is it that keeps your axle saft from move up and down where it comes outa the tube at the u-joint. I got under the jeep to spray bolts again, and my driverside shaft has play in it.

so for the front driveshaft or the axle shafts? either or if has movement where it goes into our out of the housing, its more than likely bearings like kooaid said. hey btw man idk if i told you or not but i totally spaced and forgot my nieces 1st birthday party is sunday so i cant help you lift your jeep sorry man we will have to think of another day

there should be a little movement out of there, jack up the tire, wiggle the tire and see if it moves..if so either balljoints or hub bearings id say
