Been collecting parts the past few months. I'm going to cut out the shock towers(third time) and patch the frame and do hoops. Main reason is because I plan on stretching and entertaining CO's.
I have all the 4 link parts on the shelf but I need some more parts for the overhaul.
Front link parts
Brackets 3 link
Some sort of front highline fender
Poly front cage kit
Tomorrow I am probably going to cut out the front BTF cage. Main reason is I can't get the windshield back farther and it is putting stress on the hard top. I also have a gap between the door and windshield. No bueno.
Once it gets warmer, I will pick up a WK diesel, which will be a tow rig for Jeep and my band trailer. Once I have a reliable DD I will do the overhaul.
I will probably reach out to a few people for some of the work. I may contact Mike about the cage, because I want it to be spot on and perfect.
For the suspension, not sure yet. I don't really have any experience with setting up COs so I will be looking for someone somewhat local.
My plan is to get the Jeep looking and driving great, with a small stretch, and still run 35's.
Buying parts a little at a time has made my wallet feel heavier and I kinda like the feeling I'm not blowing thousands at once.
Sold a few guitars so once I find a new one, the rest of the cash will be for the jeep.
Okay, so I started thinking about a few things I need to fix right.
Rear shock towers
Rear frame- going back to more traditional frame with trailer hitch
Front cage windshield tie ins
I do not have a welder at the moment so I'm trying to get my hands on one.
I am buying a small enclosed trailer for band equipment which for around town gigs id like to use the jeep, since it is shorter and easier to fit around down town.
These mods will also get the jeep so I feel more comfortable selling it if need be. As much as I don't want to, I don't think I'll have time like I used to. Will my first EP scheduled to be finished around mid Feb, I won't have much time to mess with things, so hopefully I can get my hands on a welder and fix this ***** up to my liking.
I need to find someone to help work on the jeep local to me. I really just need a week and a welder. Rear frame work will happen first. Once that's finished the way I want, I will start moving to other things. As it sits, I couldn't sell... Which is a good and bad thing.
