Both dj's are cool. I love people doing something different. Just found your thread today and read it all!!!!! Working on 2 projects at once? You definitely must suffer from ADD, JK!! Really nice job showing progress will be watching from now on. I really like how you source donor parts and not just pay for bolt on stuff. Keep up the good work

Thanks a bunch and "welcome to my build...muahahaha...I vant your left over parts...muahahaha".....hey what can I say I'm an equal opportunity destroyer....and yes I suffer from the ADHD(attention deficit hunting disorder) curse as well as CRS(can't remember s##t), CFS(can't finish s##t), ABD(adult bassackwards disease), and last but not least JPLD(just plain lazy disease).....lol...but seriously the look of progress is all smoke and mirrors as I pretty much work on these all day every day...but my mind wanders badly and my arms and hands only allow me to actually "work" on it about 10-15 minutes out of each hour...even less now I've slowed on the drinks...on the bright side I filed my second set of form with disability yesterday(at the wonderful grand age of 43, I feel like such a loser)...when I was younger I used to believe I could fly....God tried to convince me I didn't by repeatedly reintroducing me to gravity and concrete, combined with 26 years of being a wrencher, attic rat and iron worker(blacksmith)...the crashes, grinding, hammering, weeks and months at a time on my hands n knees(HVAC hardline installer)....my body has said enuff is enuff...so the fact that y'all think I'm making progess makes me feel awesome...

ok so first we will just post a quick comparison pic......

before....yuk!!!!!



after...ahhh!!!!!





ok so now just a bunch of pics and an occasional narrative.....

shock mounts...lol...




frame painted...all but crosmembers and rear bumper....



one of those tasteful red accents i mentioned earlier on...lol


didnt like the brackets black so i browned em...lol


linkage stuff...



was amazed how clean the oil and inside of this little motor are...no sludge or grime and oil is clean and amber colored not black...i did however find what appeared to be pieces of broken black plastic...which turned out to be the valve stem seals(super easy fix) i think i even have a set that will work...yeeha score for me...lol....



ok well a few minor things like bolting the proportioning valve and reclipping brake lines and driveshaft and rear shocks...double check everything mke sure its good and tight then its back on with the body...going up to memphis this weekend to pick up some used rubber(nothing exciting just street tires) then ill be back on it hard next week will just be piddling over the next day or so got some yard work to do around here...lol

Freak Im working on a dj sketch with a truck bed on it. Do you want the rear wheels in the stock location with a bed attached to the rear? Im trying to morph a tj brute bed onto the dj. If that works I may try the 4 door sketch.

Awesome...thanks...on the pickup I want it to be like a pickup cab and yes the brute bed would be perfect...and yes on both sketches the wheel base must stretch..in real life it will be between 18-24"... Making the actual wheelbase 98-104" all stretch will be in the middle section of frame almost as if making a brute..which I guess if I go the pickup route it will be a dj-brute instead of a tj brute...lol...thanks once again...

First things first, I am brand new to photo editing and even newer to this software. I have only made a few memes before, havn't edited vehicles until now. Here is a rough sketch of a 2dr dj brute. I filled in the rear wheel well and cropped a brute bed on. Let me know what you think, either way it would look cool. I can edit anything however you like. This is just to help generate ideas.

That my friends is a true travesty...we should all take a moment of silence for the fallen hero's....(taps playing softly in the background).....

Ok so has anyone else noticed the lack of axles on those shells...I'm crying on the inside....but I'm ok with that I plan on bringing as many of theses poor lost jeeps back to the light as my time and money will allow.....may the jeep gods watch over them...so let us pray....

As I drive this trail I have never drove
I will fear no obstacle
For my jack and strap they comfort me
My CB radio it connectith me
And the Toyota in front shall be stuckith before me
So I will fear no obstacle
Because I am protected by the love of my "JEEP"
Amen

Saw this bad Larry on my way to Lowes today, reminded me of this build
