Project Need Another Job

I figured since i like watching other people build their rigs I would post up my build seeing that the time has come. I have been waiting patiently since April gathering parts for the build and finally have enough to get a good start. So far I have a BDS 3.5 inch lift,Daystar 1 inch body lift, Ford 8.8, T&T customs tube fenders and quarter overlays, Cooper discover stt 35s and some small stuff. I still have a lot planned but need more funds. Should have new pics daily

Today is the day finally moved it into the garage and this is what it looks like as of right now 94 sahara green/tan will be converted to black on black





I guess i will need someone to make the pictures come up,I have posted some before but it is not doing a direct link now

Good luck with the build! I just started mine too and I'm afraid I already have the Jeep bug

Ok got a little done this evening. Doesnt look like much but let me tell you the side steps are a mother to get off. We took off all the rear lighting going to be going with flush mount leds and got the flares off. Should be able to acomplish quite a bit tommorow with the flares being off. I think that is one of the most time consuming areas of a teardown

Ok I have my uncle helping me and I feel like we got quite a bit accomplished tonight. We started of by gutting the entire interior and then decided to put the quarter overlay on to take a look at it. Well that looked so good we decide we had to get one of the fenders off and try out the new one also. I must say these parts are awesome as far as beefiness and fit and finish. They make a great product. Heres some updated pics

NOOOOOO! Another perfectly good 94/95 forest green Sahara loses its paint scheme! Tisk, tisk.

Just kidding man. I'm a little biased towards Sahara green YJ's (see sig). Looks like you've got a nice build plan. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Yeah, there are a few guys here on JF with murdered out YJ's and I think they always look killer.... no pun intended. Some people hate 'em, but I think they look awesome.
