One step closer to being street legal!!

Found a set of front fenders for cheap and then got marker lights out of the junk yard.









Now I just have to get front turn signals and I'll be ready for inspection.

I'm not painting them because they are coming off after inspection and I will be buying MCE flat fenders. And yes, the snorkel is going back on.

Thanks. A little more money and work and I'll have it looking like I want it to. Thinking about doing an OD green paint job.

You know, anthony is real sick with a rattle can if you need help with the OD green paint job, i mean he's REAL good. He's the one that sprayed on my raptor liner with the gun, it looks pro.

I will definitely keep that in mind. Right now I'm just tossing the idea around. My jeep is already pretty beat and scratched so if it comes out looking bad it didn't look good to begin with.

It's been a while since I updated this. A lot has happened. I was on my way to go wheeling and my clutch burned up on the highway. So after sitting all summer I finally had the time to put a new clutch in. Took the jeep out wheeling and It was awesome. If you don't have a hand throttle, GET ONE. My favorite part of the Jeep by far.

Painted my dana 44 and it is now getting re geared. Once I should be ordering an SYE, Rokmen control arms, and brake parts next pay check so I can swap the D44 in. Then I'll get the front re geared. I've driven an under geared jeep for 4 years. I can't wait to finally drive a jeep thats geared properly.

been a while since i've updated. So here it is in a nut shell.

SYE is done.

D44 is almost all done. Just need to bolt up the shocks and track bar and tighten everything down once its sitting on the tires.

Still need to put the new brakes on the axle. I replaced all the brake lines with stainless lines from classic tube.

Just got off the phone with Tom Woods. Driveshaft should be here on friday.

Then the front needs to be regeared and i'll be ready for some wheeling.

Looks like progress on the Jeep has to slow down for a little bit.
Trying to get the axle swap wrapped up tomorrow.
Good news is I now have a daily driver

Just got it through inspection. Unfortunately getting everything fixed dug into my jeep fund a bit. Oh well, at least I'll save money on gas.
