I almost forgot about Joe's thread. I wonder if he's done anything else to his jeep as well.

hey all life got a little busy of course. Not much has been going on with the jeep, odds n ends here and there currently tracking down some parts. I wore out my smitty built winch and the women got me a warn 12k. Frame has gotten a little rust hole, so i will try and remember to get some pictures. I ve bought a house with a big garage so i should be able to do some more things to it, Im planning on getting some metal and redoing the front fenders. Been trying to come across a frito lay van, to swap a cummins into but havnt had much luck. Purchasing a house at 22 has put a damper on my toys.
Heres on of my current projects, made the flat bed, and my daily driver,


Heres how she sitting currently.

I think jbolty has been moving the YJ builds in YJ Tech to the Jeep Builds forum. Mine was moved as well. I assume he's trying to make it proper.

Shew, its been a while, life has gotten busy. the jeep has gone from my pride and joy to a toy sitting in my back woods, sad. I got it out registerd and insured it after sitting for two years or so. rear passenger side frame rusted out.. I fixed that and took it to GWNF over the weekend, really brought back memories. a good 2 hour drive will do that. so, as soon as i get caught up on side work at the house (automoive work comes first to pay for the toys) im going to get some tihngs done. First is to rebuild the front fenders, they are not nearly strong enough. i picked up some 11 GA sheet metal. Next is to reinforce rear swing out, gotten wobbley over the years with a 36 swamper on it. Then hopefully doing a 383 stroker swap. Engine is at machine shop, turbo 350 trans sitting in shop waiting for its rebuild. need to get some new seats as well
