Took the body off the frame to make things easier to work with. Also going to clean up the frame and probably coat it with some Rustoleum or something like that.

Going to remove all the unnecessary wiring, computer, etc from the 350 that was left one. Also ordered some 2.5 coilovers from F-O-A with some viper springs and high temp seals.

Thanks man. Check with Dan if you're looking for something, he can do pretty much anything and place it anywhere lol. Keep in mind though, he's got quite the backlog, my dash to forever to get here, but whatever, I like it =)

Nice, I'm actually getting over a Horrible sunburn on my left leg from doing just what you are doing in those pic's , welding in shorts - DOH. I'm just over from you in Melbourne man - Looking good, I'll be working on my truck soon - 14 bolt then SFA and Hydro steering but it's my Daily so it will stay on 35's and take a while i"m sure, ordering the Mrs a new Unlimited so getting back on these forums, I actually miss my YJ over my TJ more to be honest, had steering issues with my TJ and not enough time or money to straighten it out.

Looks great man, that dash setup is SICK, Why did you narrow the Axles if your going that big? Not used to seeing DRopped transfer cases running on the road and I'm drooling over that workspace man.

Thanks man. Yea the shop is pretty nice, it's normally used to build race cars, so we all had to adapt a little = )

I actually ran a 14 bolt on a YJ back in the day, it was a beast. I didn't narrow the axles back then either. This time I just didn't want them sticking out so far. Yet, they are still about 5 inches longer then stock. Got 12 in wheels, and 15 inch wide tires, so I should be pretty stable without it looking like a full size truck. =)

Haven't yet decided how to paint the dash, either a textured powder coat, or a satin black powder coat. Still trying to decide, yet I love what Dan did with the dash.

Painted the Rocker Knockers, they turned out pretty well I think. This is Rustoleum truck bed coating.

Holidays and work are making progress slow. Mostly painting stuff up, getting the electric figured out, removing the old wires and computer. Also painted the axles to black, they had some red primer on them before. Got the gauges in, the Art Carr shifter, as well as the twin stick np205 setup.
