Project Jermey

Well i thought i should keep track of my buddies build

1990 6cyl 5speed

Bought for 2800.00

Not Real sure what direction he is going with this but here is what we got so far

Day i went to look at it for him





Then we picked up a new tub for 70.00





And now i am left with this to rebuild

Reason for new tub









Could it be fixed.... Sure but for 70.00 for the replacement tub why not

BUT Here is what needs fixed on the new tub









Otherwise the tub is SOLID and this will be less work in the long run to fix and make Purdy

So that is all i have for right now, the new side panels and floor boards should be here today and i get to start digging in

I love the bait ans switch method of building. that's the path I'm headed with my build if it ever gets rolling. and you end up with enough parts for a 2nd jeep at the end! haha. Goodluck!

I gave up on useing the original frame after several attempts to repair. I sourced a new one locally. The only rough spot on the frame was the typical shock mount area. It was not rusted through but it was getting thin. I removed the shock mount and covered it with 3/16' plate. I know its a bit overkill but it was what i had in the shop. Not too bad for a guy who has never welded a day in his life...

I sourced a 4:10 LSD 8.8, went through the axle, cleaned it up, and installed it. I took an experimental route with the 8.8 install, by just adding plate to the existing spring perches and drilling new center pin holes in the plate. At the same time i sourced a 4cyl dana 30 for the front. I also cleaned and coated the rolling chassis.

I also gave up on my $70 replacement tub when this beauty showed up on Craigslist for $100.

After stripping it down i found a small drivers side floor pan issue and replaced it, along with a bit of fender well trimming (to clear the 35's), and trucklite recessed tail lights. The drivers side rear corner had also taken a few hits. I worked the dents out with my body hammers.

Once the tub was in a condition to paint, the windshield was next. The P.O. had drilled over 40 holes in the windshield frame, so i got to try out the new welder. The flux core worked fine for this , I picked up a bottle down the road in the build.

With everything sanded down it was time for paint work. Being that i do not have a paint booth, or the room to dedicate to one, I improvised with a weighted poly plastic hanging from the ceiling with box fans and a furnace filter. I think it came out pretty well considering. There is zero bondo in my build, I like the mechanical look of a raw tub. After the paint cured I rolled on my monstaliner. I coated every inch on the inside of the tub, including the underside of the cowl.

At the same time i worked on giving Rusty his namesake. Accomplished with a mixture of hydrogen peroxide, white vinegar, and salt, in a spray bottle. Time lapse is about a minute.
