Nice lookin' Jeep, very similar to my "rig"...

You paid the same as I did for mine, and yours seemed to be in much better mechanical condition...although I had no rust.

Nice looking jeep. How has your top helded up with the spray paint? I was thinking of spraying mine and was curious how you prepped it and how well it looks after a year of use?

Nice to see some fellow Long Islanders to. What part of the island are you from? By the way your really representing LI with 516 posts. .

Thanks! The top is still looking great but its been stored inside for a few months, ill try to get some follow up pics in a little while.I cleaned and let it dry, then taped off all of the windows and things i didnt want painted, then painted it with a few cans of Satin Black Krylon fusion. really easy to do and im really happy how it came out. Im in ronkonkoma, so the next town over haha

I am actually right next door in Bohemia. I have a tan top and have been debating if I want to paint it black or try to find someone to trade for a black top. Since yours is holding up well, it might be easier for me to just paint mine then look for someone to trade.

Nice find. Is it 373 or 410? I just picked one up the other week with 410's for $250, so you did better then me. I can check to see if mine has the same wiring. I am not sure though if they are speed sensor, abs, or something else.

Its an open diff with 4.10s. im going to get new rotors and pads bearings and some other stuff for it, looks like its been sitting a while. As for the wires, its definitly a speed sensor for the abs. Ill be removing that either putting a plug in there or welding it shut because i heard the speed sensors are prone to leaking

Top looks good. Glad to see yours is holding up. I will prob do mine the same.

I also liked your bumper tire mount write up. I have mine on a laundry list of things to do. I was planning on going 37" tires. Do you think yours is strong enough to carry one?

love the build so far. i had to do the same thing with cutting the pitman arm off. took me an entire day it SUCKED! i would deff look into getting some bigger shackles. you'd be surprised how much they can lift and level the jeep especially with the lift springs the stock shackles dont have the travel that a longer one would. greaseable would be the way to go too. its already come a long way in such a short time too keep it up

Thanks! If you want to put 37s i would definitely get the heavy duty spindle. AtoZFabrication makes a Heavy duty spindle for an extra $25 i think it would be worth it to have the added strength. Mine is pretty solid as it sits now, but wouldnt know how it would be with a 37. For KM2s 37s are only 20 lbs heavier than 33s, that added 20 lbs plus the height you would have to add to fit a 37 on the carrier would definitely add more stress to the spindle when your driving offroad.

I would also tie in the bumper into the frame. Ill try to get some pics up of how i tied mine to my frame tomorrow.

Thanks! Haha same thing happened to two of my friends when they put their lifts in right after mine. I was thinking about doing some Currie greasable boomerang shackles to compensate for my sagging RC lift. Im planning to go SOA in the near future so the greasable boomerang shackles might be my best option
