Ok, so the inside and underneath of the tub is going to go Blue Bedliner, the inner fenders and inside of the tailgate is going black. The inside of the bed is already textured composite plastic.

Good news. The wife gave me the go ahead on finishing the Project without taking parts from my other Jeep. So the Flop will stay in the family in one piece.

List of parts still needed.

Throttle body 97-99
Distributor 4.0 97-99
Rear driveshaft
Front brake hoses
Fuel pump 97-99
4:88 gears JK30-44
Front Currie AR
Stock TJ tail lights

Optional: used 35-37 tires

I am sure there is a few small things I will update later.

I have the stock fuel pump from my '97 if you think you might be able to use it John, worked fine before I swapped to the fuel cell and '99 pump that came with it.

Edit: also have stock tail lights, missing the screws probably but the housings,lenses and bulbs are good.

Sounds good, doesn't matter that it was a 4cyl?

You will have to check on that to make sure... however, the pump that I got with the cell was out of a 6cyl and is running my 4cyl just fine. I never really thought anything about it.
