Crazy thing with the same db meter it now hits 114-116 bounces back and forth lol, I guess I was really under powering the 3 lol :-D best thing is now I got a little cargo space ;-)

Started to part out my wrecked WJ today

Pulled rest of audio cables, Viper alarm with all its equipment, i cut harness after conection to Jeep harness so it will be easy to hook it up again, i can still see what color it Went to.

Pulled almost all interior, except for the Cargo area, Those parts Are ruined.

Tail, head, and 3th brake light i donated to Trixie369's Jeep, now it looks sooo much better

Pulled ECM, BCM, TCM, door lock actuators, battery, headlight support, Hella grill lights, mirrors,,,,,,

Good for a start, thx to Allan who helped me out

I plan to sell as many parts as possible,,,,
except offcourse the ones i need myself.

Did this with an XJ when a buddy of mine was clipped on the highway and it rolled. Was in beautiful shape too. Grab and keep whatever you may need and sell the rest. Did you keep your original rims? Then you can move your new ones over and put the old ones back on.

Was going to do my springs today. Don't know if I can. Been raining hard all morning. Stopped for now, but thunderstroms this afternoon. Might have to wait until tomorrow. Supposed to be nicer out. Painting the rims on hold it looks like as well.

Had it done this year, but that was before my upper and lower IRO CA's.

Im going to finally tackle my shot front upper axle bushing this weekend. I think im trying to be a perfectionists here anyways. It is a lifted jeep and probably will never drive like it used to...

Got a good set of stock ones. Still have the powder coating on them. My are sag'd and rusted.

If I ever get the money it'll be 6" longarm. Just leaving the 2"BB for now and getting everything fixed that's needed to do. Can see the transmission needing some work in the near future, but hoping not.

If they'll take it that way, then do it! Typically here they have to have some kind of wheels on it. Even if it's just the donut spares LOL

A bit of advice with maintanance in mind......
Replace those breathers on the valvle cover when doing the gasket, one is a CCV elbow and I think the other is a PCV. use the search on here there is HUGE thread about CCV elbow replacement it include the correct P/N's for each part. IIRC they are both 5 bucks.......
