YJ Build has started!!

So I just got back from overseas and planned on doing a 318 swap in my YJ late Feb. Well, once I got home I decided to go ahead and knock it out.

I am swapping motor, trans, transfer case, drive shafts, rear and front ends. I already have the drive train pulled and clearing the tub as we speak to hopefully have it line-x'd this week.

Looking good so far, you should have this moved to the builds or YJ section for more views. Are you doing the Line-X yourself or getting it done in a shop? Either way, what's the hit to the wallet?

I used to work for a line-x shop in town while off rotation overseas. I will be doing all the prep myself then takin the tub up to get line-x'd. It about a grand for too and bottom of the tub, so worth it if you ask me!

Yeah, if I had the money to do that I would. No worries about corrosion on the underside and easy clean up of the inside would be great.

Looks like I have to wait on the line-x. After a good look inside my tranny found out it either needs a complete rebuild or replacement...
