Project Wrong way.
 
Project "Wrong Way"
or, how to build a Jeep backwards...
I started out with this Dodge Ram, I put it up for sale or trade on Craigslist.

I got an offer of a 97 TJ 4cyl for trade on 35's, I took the bait:

Here it is after I got it home.

I thought the front winch bumper looked naked without a winch,

so the first thing I did was add a Mile Marker 12k winch that I had left over from a previous project.

The old faded fenders had been repainted before I got the Jeep, and they looked like crap, so out came the krylon Fusion...

I only did one side of the Jeep because I ran out of paint...

Necromancer_tat 11-24-2011 03:55 PM

Instead of focusing on the crappy suspension, I decided I needed new tires, so off I went and bought some of the new Mickey baja Claw TTC's...

So, instead of focusing on making my Jeep ride better, or actually steer better, i thought it would be a good idea to spend more money on parts I don't need...

I bought a few more cans of spray paint, and decided to finish painting my fender flares and my rocker guards.

Nice!

Necromancer_tat 11-24-2011 04:12 PM

So I finally decided to try to fix my steering slop...

I got tired of my spare tire wobling, and it was making my tailgate hard to close, so I decided to get a spare tire carrier...

I always liked the look of jeep with tube fenders, so I ordered front and rear tube fenders for mine, once again neglecting the suspension, and control arms, which is where i should've been spending my money instead...

So... once again, I decided to ignore the suspension, and spend my money on other un needed things... like a radiator hoop and stinger for the front bumper...

Well, like I posted earlier, I purchased both front and rear tube fenders, but before I installed the front fenders I wanted to take my jeep to the inspection station before i did any more alterations to it...
Of course it failed... I pretty much expected it to, but before I spent any more money I wanted the inspector to point out exactly what he wanted to see me replace...

Necromancer_tat 11-24-2011 04:57 PM

When I first got the Jeep the soft top was really damaged, so I pretty much ran around with it basically in safari top mode, or with out the top at all...
